Instructions

Each of the questions below consists of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question. Read both the statements and -
Give answer a: if the data in Statement I alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in Statement II alone are not sufficient to answer the question.
Give answer b: if the data in Statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in Statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question.
Give answer c: if the data either in Statement I alone or in Statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question.
Give answer d: if the data even in both Statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.
Give answer e: if the data in both Statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question.

Question 120

# Five persons - A, B, C, D and E - are sitting around a circular table. Some of them are facing towards centre while others are facing outside. Who is sitting second to the left of A?I. B is facing outside. C is to the immediate left of B. D is second to the right of C. A is to the immediate left of E.II. D is to the immediate right of A. Both D and A are facing towards the centre. D and B are immediate neighbours of each other.

Solution

I : B is facing outside. C is to the immediate left of B. D is second to the right of C. A is to the immediate left of E.

=> C is facing outside and directions in which A and E are facing are unknown. Thus, possible arrangements are :

Thus, I alone is insufficient.

II : D is to the immediate right of A. Both D and A are facing towards the centre. D and B are immediate neighbours of each other.

Similarly, II alone is also insufficient, hence by combining both statements, we get :

Thus, C is sitting second to the left of A.

$$\therefore$$ Both statements together are sufficient.

=> Ans - (E)
