Three persons are visited between the one who likes Brown and M, who doesn't like Red. The one who likes Brown visits in October. The number of persons visited between T and the one who likes Brown is one less than the number of persons visited between C and the one who likes Pink. C neither visited in December nor July. T neither likes Pink nor Red. The one who likes White visited immediately before C, who neither likes Brown nor Orange. The number of persons visited between Z and the one who likes White is one more than the number of persons visited after the one who likes Red. Z visits in any month after the one who likes Blue. Two persons are visited between the one who likes Black and W, who visits in one of the month having an odd number of days. W, who doesn't like Pink, visits immediately after the one who likes Green.

We have:

• Three persons are visited between the one who likes Pink and K, who visited in one of the month having an even number of days.

• The one who likes Brown visited in October. That means, in case (1) K visited in September, in case (2) K visited in November.

• Three persons are visited between the one who likes Brown and M, who doesn't like Red.

Based on the above given information we have:

Again, we have:

• The number of persons visited between T and the one who likes Brown is one less than the number of persons visited between C and the one who likes Pink.

• C neither visited in December nor July.

• T neither likes Pink nor Red.

• The one who likes White visits immediately before C, who neither likes Brown nor Orange.

That means, in case (1) C visited in August, in case (2) C visited in March.

Based on the above given information we have:

puzzle-test-verbal-reasoning

Again, we have:

• The number of persons visited between Z and the one who likes White is one more than the number of persons visited after the one who likes Red.

• Z visits in any month after the one who likes Blue. That means, in case (1) Z visited in October, in case (2) Z visited in July, in case (2a) Z visited in October.

• Two persons are visited between the one who likes Black and W, who visits in one of the month having an odd number of days.

• W, who doesn't like Pink, visits immediately after the one who likes Green.

That means, in case (1) W visited in July, in case (2a) W visited in December, case (2) is not valid.

Based on the above given information we have:

Case (2) is not valid as two persons are visited between the one who likes Black and W.

Again, we have:

• Neither G nor Q likes Pink.

• The number of persons visited between B and the one who likes Blue is one more than the number of persons visited between G and the one who likes Orange.

Since, C doesn't like Orange. That means, in case (1) B likes Pink, and C likes Blue, case (2a) is not valid.

Based on the above given information we have:

Case (2a) is not valid as the number of persons visited between B and the one who likes Blue is one more than the number of persons visited between G and the one who likes Orange.
