**DIRECTIONS for questions 108 to 110: **These questions are based on the
situation given below:

Recently, Ghosh Babu spent his winter vacation on Kyakya Island. During the
vacation, he visited the local casino where he came across a new card game. Two
players, using a normal deck of 52 playing cards, play this game. One player is
called the Dealer and the other is called the Player. First, the Player picks a
card at random from the deck. This is called the base card. The amount in rupees
equal to the face value of the base card is called the base amount. The face
values of Ace, King, Queen and Jack are ten. For other cards, the face value is
the number on the card. Once, the Player picks a card from the deck, the Dealer
pays him the base amount. Then the dealer picks a card from the deck and this
card is called the top card. If the top card is of the same suit as the base
card, the Player pays twice the base amount to the Dealer. If the top card is of
the same colour as the base card (but not the same suit) then the Player pays
the base amount to the Dealer. If the top card happens to be of a different
colour than the base card, the Dealer pays the base amount to the Player.

Ghosh Babu played the game 4 times. First time he picked eight of clubs and the
Dealer picked queen of clubs. Second time, he picked ten of hearts and the
dealer picked two of spades. Next time, Ghosh Babu picked six of diamonds and
the dealer picked ace of hearts. Lastly, he picked eight of spades and the
dealer picked jack of spades. Answer the following questions based on these four
games.

**108.** If Ghosh Babu stopped playing the game when his gain would be
maximized, the gain in Rs. would have been

1. 12

2. 20

3. 16

4. 4

sessions) was Rs. X. At no point did he have to borrow any money. What is the
minimum possible value of X?

100, what was the initial amount he had with him?

1. 120
