Question 181

# If all the given people are made to sit in alphabetical order from left to right, the positions of how many of them will remain unchanged?

Solution

H sits fifth to the left of D and D does not sits at any of the extreme ends of the line, => Let H sits at the extreme left end and thus D sits third from the right end.

Only two persons sit between H and I, => I sits third to the right of H.

E sits third to the right of J and J is not an immediate neighbour of H, => J sit to the immediate left of D and E at the extreme right end.

C is an immediate neighbour of G and G is not an immediate neighbour of I, => G sits to the immediate left of I and to the immediate right of H.

The vacant place to the immediate left of E is filled by F.

If all the given people are made to sit in alphabetical order from left to right, the positions of none of them will remain unchanged.

=> Ans - (D)
