    The first two statements imply that the cost of three pencils is equal to the cost of two erasers, and the cost of four erasers is equal to the cost of one ruler. However, there is no direct comparison between the cost of pencils and rulers. Therefore, we cannot conclude that pencils are more expensive than rulers based on the given information. Hence, the third statement is false.

    When 3 points are at the bottom of the dice, the opposite side of the dice will have 4 points at the top. This is because on a standard dice, the sum of the numbers on opposite sides is always 7. Therefore, if 3 points are at the bottom, the remaining 4 points will be at the top.

    • A.

      SRPQ

    • B.

      QPRS

    • C.

      QPSR

    • D.

      RQPS

    Correct Answer
    B. QPRS
    Explanation
    The sentence "although a great scientist" (Q) should come before the sentence "Einstein was weak in arithmetic" (R) because it provides context and introduces the contrast between Einstein's greatness as a scientist and his weakness in arithmetic. The sentence "right from his school days" (S) should come after the sentence "Einstein was weak in arithmetic" (R) because it further elaborates on the timeframe and establishes that his weakness in arithmetic was present since his school days. The sentence "It has been established that" (P) should come before all the other sentences as it sets the tone and introduces the information that follows. Therefore, the correct sequence is QPRS.
