solution: For 20 hrs the husband's watch gains 40 minutes,and his wife's watch will lose 20 minutes. So after 20 hrs the difference between their watch timings is 60 minutes. That means they set their watches to same time 20 hrs back.

guys..... i think i got it. Here in the second question there are two mandatory conditions we have to fulfill in our solution. they are1.A,B & E must have french as a common language.2.C & E must have Italian as a common language.Taking these two conditions in to consideration it is impossible to solve the puzzle.Because it is obvious that only B or C have the chances to make 5 languages, but neither of them can have the 5 languages coz it arises conflicts on the conditions.So we have an alternative condition that the Most common language is french, i.e, all people can speak french. taking this condition, the solution isA-French-1B-English, Spanish, French, Portuguese-4C-English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, French-5D-Spanish, Portuguese, French-3E-Italian, French-2I think Mr.Parminder Kaur got the right answer prior to me.
