Instructions

Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below :

Eight persons — E, F, G, H, I, J, K and L — are sitting around a circle at equidistance but not necessarily in the same order. Some of them are facing towards the centre while some others are facing outside the centre. L is sitting third to the left of K. Both K and L are facing towards the outside. H is not an immediate neighbour of K or L. J faces the just opposite direction of H. (It implies that if H is facing towards the centre, J would face outside the centre). J is sitting second to the left of H. Both the immediate neighbours of G face just opposite direction of G. E is an immediate neighbour of K. Both the immediate neighbours of H face just opposite direction of H. E faces towards the centre and he is an immediate neighbour of both K and I. I faces towards the centre.

Question 154

# How many persons are sitting between H and K if we move clockwise starting from H ?

Solution

L is sitting third to the left of K and both K and L are facing towards the outside.

E faces towards the centre and he is an immediate neighbour of both K and I, => Let E is to the immediate right of K and I who faces towards the centre is between L and E.

H is not an immediate neighbour of K or L, => H is second to the left of L.

J is sitting second to the left of H, => H faces outside and J is sitting to the immediate right of K.

J faces the just opposite direction of H, => J faces towards the centre.

Both the immediate neighbours of G face just opposite direction of G, => G is sitting between H and L and is facing inside.

Both the immediate neighbours of H face just opposite direction of H, => F sits between H and J and faces towards the centre.

If we move clockwise starting from H, there are 4 people sitting between H and K.

=> Ans - (B)
