Blueberries cost more than strawberries.

Let suppose blueberries is 100 and strawberry is 10.

Blueberries cost less than raspberries.

Blueberry we already assumed in 100, Let suppose raspberry is 5.

So raspberry costs less both than strawberry n blueberry.

If we would assumed raspberry to be 20 it would ve been less than blueberry but more than strawberry.

What if strawberries and raspberries are the same cost. Blueberry is still cheaper than raspberries and strawberry?

Then, the answer should be uncertain.

Hira said:   7 years ago
It is true only because in the question it is mentioned clearly that raspberry is expensive.

Rajesh belamkar said:   7 years ago
Answer be uncertain, let's say the cost of strawberry is 1 Rs, blueberry be 2 Rs, raspberry 3 Rs, so how can the price of raspberry be more than 3?

Just to throw this out there - If the Raspberries were said pound 1, Blueberries pound 0.90, and Strawberries pound 0.80 then the statement wouldn't be true.

Why shouldn't the actual answer be 'uncertain'?

First call will be made to 152 so it should be 2*8. Plus what if we get deepak in between like at 19 and don't need to call further. Can we really calculate this?

Praveen said:   7 years ago
Since each call takes 2 mins.

Babai said:   7 years ago
Why 9 is multiplied with 2 ?

Pradeep said:   7 years ago
The call center calls the middle no. i.e. (305/2) = 152.5 say 152 and asks them their name to get an idea of whether to go to up or down side of 152 no directory and suppose person replies some name.

The starting letter of the name will suggest the call center to decide to weather go up or down the name list.

So the process goes like >305->152-->76-->38-->19-->9-->4-->2-->1.

So Minimum time = 9*2 = 18 mins.
