1. Monday, Wednesday, Friday
2. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
3. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
4. Wednesday, Thursday,Friday
 Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Anu Yes Yes No Bhupesh Yes Chirag No No Yes

If Bhupesh Comes on Wednesday,Thursday,Friday, then Chirag can not come on Thursday Friday but can come with Anu on Tuesdays and alone on Monday an Anu can come anywhere in between Wednesday and Thursday. Hence 4th is the correct Option.

2. Three
3. Two
4. One
 Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Bhupesh ✓ ✓ Anu ✓ ✓ Chirag No No ✓ ✓ Dana ✓ ✓ ✓

 Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Bhupesh ✓ ✓ Anu ✓ ✓ Chirag ✓ ✓ Dana ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓

3. If Anu cannot meet with Tara on Tuesday or Wednesday, on what day must Chirag meet with her?
1. Monday
2. Tuesday
3. Wednesday
4. Thursday
Out of the four options, since Anu cannot come on Tuesdays and Wednesday so Chirag also can’t, also if Anu comes on Monday, Bhupesh has to come and there cannot be three students with Tara on the same day, so Thursday is the correct answer, i.e. 4th option
4. If Bhupesh meets with Tara on Tuesday and Friday, on what day must Chirag meet with her?
1. Monday
2. Tuesday
3. Wednesday
4. Thursday
The possible cases are as follows:

 Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Bhupesh ✓ ✓ Anu ✓ × Chirag ✓ × ✓

 Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Bhupesh ✓ ✓ Anu ✓ ✓ Chirag × ✓ ✓

 Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Bhupesh ✓ ✓ Anu ✓ ✓ Chirag ✓ × ✓

From the case above Chirag must come on Thursday in each case, hense 4th option.
