Answers:

87 (b)
88 (c)
89 (a)
90 (c)

87. Ms. Maharashtra was wearing white. Since Ms. West Bengal was not the runner up, she was not wearing green and neither was Ms. Andhra Pradesh. Hence, it was Ms. Uttar Pradesh who was wearing green saree. So red could have either be worn by Ms. West Bengal or by Ms. Andhra Pradesh. Now participants wearing Yellow saree and White saree were at the ends, but Ms. West Bengal did not occupy any of these positions. Hence it can be concluded that Ms. Andhra Pradesh sat at one of the ends and wore yellow, while Ms. West Bengal wore red.

88. From the previous answer is can be concluded that Ms. Maharashtra and Ms. Andhra Pradesh occupied the seats at the end. So, Ms. West Bengal and Ms. Uttar Pradesh, should occupy middle two seats. So the answers could be either (b) or (c). It can further be concluded that since Ms. Andhra Pradesh wore yellow, she was the winner and since Ms. Uttar Pradesh wore green, she was the runner up. So these two cannot sit together. Option (b) would contradict this. Hence the correct answer choice is (c).

89. From answer to Q87, it can be seen that Ms. Andhra Pradesh had worn the Yellow saree.

90. From answer to Q87, it can be seen that Ms. Uttar Pradesh was the runner up.
