Correct Answer - Option 4 : Karan

Given:

Three Students: Tiara, Karan, and Chahal.

1. Only one of them told the truth in both statements.

2. Each of the other two gave one true and one false statement.

⇒ Both Tiara and Chalal in their Statement B have said that Karan has bought the notes.

⇒ Karan himself in his Statement B has accepted that he has bought the notes.

Therefore, it is clear that it was Karan who had bought the notes.

Hence, the correct answer is "Karan".
