    2. 10
    3. 36
    4. 9
    5. 15
    Answer: Option C
    N > J > K > M > I > L
    K=31
    L=12
    From the options, J Possibly handles only 36. Because K handled 31 projects so that J must be greater than 31. So answer is 36.

    5. 32
    Answer: Option B
    N > J > K > M > I > L
    K=31
    L=12
    Given that I+K=4*L
    So that, I+31=48,
