D’s specialization is in pharmacy and likes red color. N, the wife of R studies HR and like green. F likes grey and R likes orange, the one, who likes blue studies Finance.

Solution: TABULAR METHOD

PRINCIPLE OF TABLULAR METHOD: Read the statement line by line and mark in the table accordingly.

Step 1: Draw Table

Now Seven Friends of their seven specializations in which three are girls are given.

So take 7 rows for Friends and 14 columns to specializations & colors. Take one more row to write specializations & colors and two more columns to write friends name & their genders as shown in Table below:

Write down them all in the same sequence as provided in the question. Put seven friends in first column and their specialization in first row with their gender.

 Frnds Gen IT Civil HR MKT Fin. Jour. Phar. R B GN Y P O GR P F R T Q N D

Here, Frnds = Friends, Gen = Gender, MKT = Marketing, Fin. = Finance, Jour. = Journalism, Phar. = Pharmacy, R = Red, B = Blue, GN = Green, Y = Yellow, P = Pink, O = Orange, GR = Green

Step 2: Read the statement and mark line by line in Table

Line 1: P like Yellow Color but does not study IT & HR.

It means P likes Yellow and does not like other colors. So put tick mark to yellow color and cross mark to all other colors in P’s row and column as shown in Table.

Line 2: The one, who studies Civil likes Gray color and is a girl.

Leave this statement as Girl-Civil-Gray because this time it is not possible to tell about this situation.

Line 3: Q, who is sister of N, studies in Marketing and likes pink color
Q (girl) likes Marketing and pink color which means does not like other specializations and colors. So put tick mark to marketing & pink color and cross mark to all other specializations and colors in Q’s row and column as shown in Table.

Line 6: F likes grey and R likes orange one who like blue studies Finance
F likes grey color which means does not like other colors. So put tick mark to grey and cross mark to all other colors in F’s row and column (only in color Table).

R likes orange color which means does not like other colors. So put tick mark to orange and cross mark to all other colors in R’s row and column (only in color Table).

Now read this line carefully ‘one who like blue studies Finance’ and check the color Table. In Table one color position is vacant (i.e. blue).
It means put tick mark to blue and Finance which is T’s row. Put cross marks to all other specialization in T’s row and column (only in specialization Table).

NOW ALL LINES ARE OVER EXCEPT LINE 2. So read carefully line 2 again.

Line 2: The one, who studies Civil likes Gray color and is a girl.

Table shows that F has grey color which means that F likes civil is a girl also.
F likes civil which means does not like other specializations. So put tick mark to civil and cross mark to all other specializations in F’s row and column (only in specialization Table).

Now in above Table, we can see Journalism. is vacant in specialization row which means P’s specialization is Journalism. Put tick mark to Journalism and cross mark to other specialization in this column.

In the end put tick mark to the vacant position IT which is P’s specialization. Now from the statement, it was said that three of them are girls which means all other are boys. So write boy to all others vacant positions.
