Question 172

# Four of the following five are alike in a certain way based on their seating positions in the above arrangement and so form a group. Which one does not belong to the group ?

Solution

T is sitting third to the right of P.

W is sitting second to the right of S. S is not an immediate neighbour of either P or T, => S is sitting 2nd to the right of T and W is sitting to the immediate left of P.

U and Q are immediate neighbours of each other. Q is not an immediate neighbour of P, => U sits to the immediate right of P and Q sits to the immediate left of T.

V is not an immediate neighbour of W, => V sits between T and S, thus R sits to the immediate left of W.

Apart from TP, all the given pairs are sitting opposite each other.
