Correct Answer - Option 2 : Chahal

Given conditions:

Only one of them told the truth in both the statements, while each of the other two gave one true and one false statement.

Let statement 1 and statement 2 are correct and remaining other statements are not correct, then

Tiara:

A: Chahal passed the chits → True

B: Karan brought the notes → True

Karan:

A: Tiara passed the chits → True

B: I brought the notes → True

Chahal:

A: I passed the chits → False

B: Karan brought the notes → False

Both 1 and 2 statement, both Tiara and Chahal passed the chits, but in the third statement telling the Chahal not passed the chits.

Let statement 2 and statement 3 are correct and remaining other statements are not correct, then

Tiara:

A: Chahal passed the chits → False

B: Karan brought the notes → False

Karan:

A: Tiara passed the chits → True

B: I brought the notes → True

Chahal:

A: I passed the chits →True

B: Karan brought the notes → True

Both 3 and 2 statement Chahal passed the chits and Tiara passed the chits but in statement 1 tells the Chahal not passed the chits

Let statement 3 and statement 1 are correct and remaining other statements are not correct, then

Tiara:

A: Chahal passed the chits → True

B: Karan brought the notes → True

Karan:

A: Tiara passed the chits → False

B: I brought the notes → False

Chahal:

A: I passed the chits → True

B: Karan brought the notes → True

Both 1 and 3 Statement clearly shows the Chahal passed the chits but in Statement 2 tells the Tiara not passed the chits.

Hence, "Chahal" is the correct answer.
