    The minimum distance the robot may move is 1+1+1+1+1+1 = 6.
    The maximum distance is 5+5+5+5+5+5 = 30.
    and 1,3,5 odd so sum of odd+odd+odd+odd+odd+odd=even so sum will alwys be even
    so 6,8,10,12.......30 possible
    so 30 = 6 + (n - 1) * 2
    so n=13 different possible

    Q19) There are 35 employees in an office. 49 diaries, each having either a pink cover, blue cover or a red cover are distributed in a way, such that employees get atleast one diary. The number of employees who get only one diary with either red, blue or pink cover are 21, of which, less than 5 employees got only one diary each with a blue cover, more than 4 employees got only one diary each with a red cover and more than 8 employees got only one diary each with a pink cover. The number of employees who got both red and blue covered diaries but not a pink covered one is one more than those who got only red covered diaries . Employees who got blue and pink covered diaries but not a red covered one are 4 less then the employees who got only pink covered diary. Nobody got all the three diaries.

    Q20) Zada has 15 choclates which she has to distribute among her children Sana, Ada, Jiya, Amir and Farhan.
    She has to make sure that Sana gets at least 3 and at most 6 chocolates. In how many ways can this be done?

    Method 1 :
    a + b + c + d + e = 15
    where 3 < = a < = 6
    so (3 + a') + b + c + d + e = 15 where a' < = 3
    so a' + b + c + d + e = 12
    so (12 + 5 - 1)C(5 - 1) = 16c4
    now this will include case where a1' > 3
    so put a' = 4 + a''
    4 + a'' + b + c + d + e = 12
    a'' + b + c + d + e = 8
    so (8 + 5 - 1)C(5 - 1) = 12C4
    so 16C4 - 12C4 = 1325

    Method 2 :
    3 + a + b + c + d = 15
    so a + b + c + d = 12
    so (12 + 4 - 1)C(4 - 1) = 15C3
    4 + a + b + c + d = 15
    so a + b + c + d = 11
    so 14c3
    15c3 + 14c3 + 13c3 + 12c3 = 1325

    Q21) I have x cards with me. If I distribute them among 7 boys equally, then I'll have 2 cards left with me. Similarly, if I distribute them among 8, then I'll have 6 left and if I distribute among 9, I'll have 3 left. What is the minimum number of cards that I have in hand if no card is left after I distribute them among 3 boys or 5 boys?
