Official Solution:


There are two football teams X and Y and matches between them are played at the home ground of either. X has never lost a match on its home ground, when Jessi has played for the team, whereas Y has not lost any of its matches on its home ground.

What can NOT be true about the last match played between the two teams?


A. If X won the match and Jessi played that match, the match was played at home ground of X.
B. If Y lost the match and Jessi did not play, the match could not have been played at home ground of X.
C. If the match was played at home grounds of Y and Jessi played the match, Y did not lose the match.
D. If Y won the match, either the match was played at home grounds of Y or Jessi did not play the match.
E. If the match was played at home grounds of X and Jessi played the match, X won the match.


Question stem:

Statement A. IF (Match at ground X AND Jessi play), THEN ( X not lose).

Statement B. IF (Match at ground Y), then (Y not lose).

A. MUST be true - Given X won the match---> Y lost--->conclusion: Match was NOT played on ground Y, hence MUST have been played on ground X (does not matter whether Jessi played or not)

B. MUST be false - Given Y lost the match---->conclusion: Match was NOT played on ground Y, hence MUST have been played on ground X (does not matter whether Jessi played or not)

C. MUST be true - Given Match on ground Y----> conclusion: Y did not lose ( does not matter whether Jessi played or not)

D. MUST be true - Given Y won the match ----> conclusion: (Match on ground Y) OR (Match on ground X AND Jessi did not play)

E. CAN be true - Given Match at ground X AND Jessi play---> X did not lose, either won or drawn.

It should have been mentioned in the question that match is played at home ground of one of the teams playing. As match can also be played at neutral venue which makes few other choices wrong.

In Ans D, why can we imply "Jessi did not play the match" to "Match on ground X AND Jessi did not play"?
