Atul has 6 policy accounts which are going to mature in between the years 1997 to 2002 (both the years included). Two policies have their maturity in the same month whereas two policies have their maturity in the same year. One of the policies matures on Feb 29th. It matures before the policy which matures on January 10th but after the policy which matures on August 8th. The first policy matures on August 24th 1997. The policy which matures on September 17th matures immediately before the policy which matures on May 21st which in turn is the last policy to mature.

  1. Which of the following policies is the 3rd to mature? (1) Feb 29th, 2000 (2) Jan 10th, 2001 (3) August 8th, 1999 (4) August 8th 1998

I think the answer is (1) because:
1) 24th August 1997 (by definition)
2) 8th August 1998 (before (3))
3) 29th Feb 2000 (the only leap year in the interval)
4) 10th Jan 2001 ((3) is before this one)
5) 17th Sep 2001 (before the last by definition)
6) 21st May 2002 (last by definition)
We have two policies in 2001 and two in August (same month but different years, still it fulfills the requirement)
