Question 177

# Who is sitting second to the left of the one who is sitting second to the left of Q?

Solution

There are only three people between P and L, => P and L are sitting opposite each other and N is second to the right of P.

P is an immediate neighbour of J, => Let J is to the immediate right of P.

There are only three people between J and K, => J and K are sitting opposite each other.

There is only one person sitting between M and J, => M is sitting second to the right of J and O is sitting third to the right of M

Thus, the only position left is filled by Q, i.e. to the immediate left of P.

K is sitting second to the left of Q, and is sitting second to the left of K.

=> Ans - (A)
