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

Solution

Given that

H sits third to the left of P. So possible cases are

H _ _ P _ _

_ H _ _ P _

_ _ H _ _ P

Now it is given that ,P does not sit at an extreme end of the line and Only one person sits between M and K. and K is not the immediate neighbour of H, So possible cases are:

H _ K P M _

H _ M P K _

_ H _ K P M

_ H _ M P K

Now it is given that ,J is not an immediate neighbour of H or M. So,

H L M P K J - Only possible arrangement
