Civil Service Candidates Math Puzzle

Which of the candidates were hired for the civil service jobs, based on their test scores?

There are six civil service job openings. Thirteen candidates passed the civil service exam with equally high scores. So the administrators gave them all a second test. This one had only five questions, each with a Yes/No answer.

The test results of the candidates had thirteen different answer sequences. The top six had the same number of correct answers and were all hired.

Three of those who were not hired had these answer sequences:

  • No, No, Yes, No, No

  • Yes, No, No, Yes, Yes

  • Yes, Yes, Yes, No, Yes
