Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 2 : D

 

8 people: A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H

8 different designations: Technical writer, Social Media Specialist (SMS), Reporter, Chief Media Executive (CME), Assistant Media Manager (AMM), General Media Manager (GMM), Creative Director and Chief Media Officer (CMO). 

8 colours: Red, Blue, Pink, Violet, Indigo, Green, Black and Brown

1) F works as a General Media Manager but is less experienced than C who likes Violet colour.

So, C works either as a Creative Director or Chief Media Officer.

2) E either likes Green or Pink colour.

People Designation Colour
A    
B    
C Creative Director/CMO Violet
D    
E   Green/Pink
F General Media Manager  
G    
H    

 

3) H doesn't not work as a Social Media Specialist but likes Blue colour.

4) A neither likes Black nor Red colour.

5) G works as a Reporter but neither likes Pink nor Red colour.

People Designation Colour
A   Black/Red
B    
C Creative Director/CMO Violet
D    
E   Green/Pink
F General Media Manager  
G Reporter Pink/Red
H Social Media Specialist Blue

 

6) The one who likes Black colour works as a Technical writer.

7) B is more experienced than G but less experienced than F.

So, B can't be a Technical writer. Thus, D works as a Technical writer.

8) A is more experienced than B but less experienced than C.

People Designation Colour
A AMM/Creative Director Red
B CME/AMM  
C Creative Director/CMO Violet
D Technical writer Black
E   Green/Pink
F General Media Manager  
G Reporter Pink/Red
H Social Media Specialist Blue

 

So, E works as a Social Media Specialist.

People Designation Colour
A AMM/Creative Director Red
B CME/AMM  
C Creative Director/CMO Violet
D Technical writer Black
E Social Media Specialist Green/Pink
F General Media Manager  
G Reporter Pink/Red
H   Blue

 

9) The one who works as a Social Media Specialist doesn't like Pink colour.

10) The one who likes Brown colour is more experienced than A.

If A is a Creative director then C has to like brown colour which is not possible.

So, we get that F likes brown colour and A works as an Assistant Media Manager who likes pink colour.

Also, B likes red and G likes Indigo colour.

People Designation Colour
A Assistant Media Manager Pink
B Chief Media Executive Red
C Creative Director/CMO Violet
D Technical writer Black
E Social Media Specialist Green
F General Media Manager Brown
G Reporter Indigo
H   Blue

 

11) H is not the most experienced person.

People Designation Colour
A Assistant Media Manager Pink
B Chief Media Executive Red
C Chief Media Officer Violet
D Technical writer Black
E Social Media Specialist Green
F General Media Manager Brown
G Reporter Indigo
H Creative Director Blue

 

Hence, D is the least experienced person.
