Five friends with surname Batliwala, Pocketwala, Talawala, Chunawala and Natakwala have their first..

Answer / guest

Pocketwala is named Elesh.

From (1) and (7), it is clear that Batliwala, Pocketwala and
Talawala are named Paresh.

From (6) and (5), if Pocketwala or Talawala both are named
Kamlesh, then either of them will have three names i.e.
Paresh, Kamlesh and Naresh. Hence, Pocketwala and Talawala
both are not named Kamlesh. It means that Batliwala,
Chunawala and Natakwala are named Kamlesh.

Now it is clear that Talawala and Chunawala are named
Naresh. Also, Pocketwala is named Elesh.
