Even together both are not sufficient.

3. 1; From I.

Sanjana is facing East. So, I alone is sufficient.

4. 1; From I. 1 3 7 — birds are flying ... (1)

13 2 — birds are beautiful ... (2)

From (1) and (2), 7 — flying

So, 1 alone is sufficient.

3 9 — blue kites ... (4)

We cannot deduce the Code for 7.

So, II alone is not sufficient.

5. 4; I. Nothing can be assumed about the availability of tickets for all. So I is not implicit.

II. The decision may have been taken with saturation in regular trains in mind. Hence II is not implicit.

So, II is implicit.
