Explanation (4):
Abnaki |
Ambal |
Absinthe |
Abrussi |
AJ Cook |
Aachen |
Explanation (5):
AJ Cook |

Explanation (6): As Q gets rejected; P and R should be there. Also as V is selected
T cannot be there and as R is selected W cannot be there.
Explanation (7): QT, RW, VT cannot be together hence options (a), (b) and (d) are eliminated.
Explanation (8): There are 2 possible combinations of four members:
P, Q, R, U and P, Q, R, V.
Explanation (9): If A is selected naturally S has to be selected.
If B is selected R cannot be selected.
If D is selected Q cannot be selected.
So, the options ADSQR and QD are wrong and RTDCB is not possible because D has to be accompanied with P.
Explanation (10): If C is selected A cannot be selected, therefore option ADPS is wrong.
S and B cannot go together. So, BDPS is wrong.
S and P have to be together. So, BDRT is wrong. Now, the team combination will be DPRT.
