Recently, the answers of a test held nationwide were leaked to a group of unscrupulous people. The investigative agency has arrested the mastermind and nine other people A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H and I in this matter. Interrogating them, the following facts have been obtained regarding their operation.   Initially the mastermind obtains the correct answer key. All the others create their answer key from one or two people who already possess the same. These people are called his/her “sources”. If the person has two sources, then he/she compares the answer keys obtained from both sources. If the key to a question from both sources is identical, it is copied, otherwise it is left blank. If the person has only one source, he/she copies the source’s answers into his/her copy. Finally, each person compulsorily replaces one of the answers (not a blank one) with a wrong answer in his/her answer key.   The paper contained 200 questions; so the investigative agency has ruled out the possibility of two or more of them introducing wrong answers to the same question. The investigative agency has a copy of the correct answer key and has tabulated the following data   These data represent question numbers.

Below is a table that lists countries region-wise. Each region-wise list is sorted, first by birth rate and then alphabetically by the name of the country. We now wish to merge the region-wise list into one consolidated list and provide overall rankings to each country based first on birth rate and then on death rate. Thus, if some countries have the same birth rate, then the country with a lower death rate will be ranked higher. Further, countries having identical birth and death rates will get the same rank. For example, if two countries are tied for the third position, then both will be given rank 3, while the next country (in the ordered list) will be ranked 5.

In a Decathlon, the events are 100 m, 400 m, 100 m hurdles, 1500 m, High jump, Pole-vaule, Long jump, Discus, Shot-put and Javelin. The performance in the first four of these events is consolidated into Score 1, the next three into Score 2, and the last three into Score 3. Each such consolidation is obtained by giving appropriate positive weights to individual events. The final score is simply the total of these three scores. The athletes with the highest, second highest and the third highest final scores receive the gold, silver and bronze medals, respectively.

The following is the Wholesale Price Index (WPI) of a select list of items with the base year of 1993-94. In other words, all the item prices are made 100 in that year (1993-94). Price in all other years for an item are measured with respect to its price in the base year. For instance, the price of cement went up by 1% in 1994-95 as compared to 1993-94. Similarly, the price of power went up by 3% in 1996-97 as compared to 1993-94.     1993-94 1994-95 1995-96 1996-97 1997-98 1998-99 1999-2000 2000-01 2001-02 2002-03 All Items 100 102.0 102.5 104.00 103.00 105.00 106.00 108.00 107.00 106.00 Cement 100 101.0 100.5 103.00 102.50 103.50 103.10 103.80 103.70 104.00 Limestone 100 102.0 102.5 102.75 102.25 103.00 104.00 105.00 104.50 105.00 Power 100 101.5 102.5 103.00 103.50 104.00 106.00 107.00 107.50 108.00 Steel 100 101.5 101.0 103.50 104.00 104.25 105.00 105.50 106.00 105.50 Timber 100 100.5 101.5 102.00 102.50 102.00 103.00 103.50 104.00 104.50 Wages 100 101.5 103.0 103.50 104.500 104.00 104.25 104.75 104.90 105.30 Steel manufacturing requires the use of iron ore, power and manpower. The cost of iron ore has followed the All Item index. During 1993-94 power accounted for 30% of the selling price of steel, iron ore for 25%, and wages fro 10% of the selling price of steel. Assuming the cost and price data for cement as given in the previous question, the operating profit (% of selling price) of an average steel manufacture in 2002-03 A is more than that of a cement manufacturer. B is less than that of a cement manufacturer. C is the same as that of a cement manufacturer. D Cannot be determined
