Question 183

# Four of the following five are alike in a certain way and thus form a group. Which is the one that does not belong to that group ?

Solution

P sits third to the left of M and is an immediate neighbour of both O and S.

Only one person sits between O and Q, => O sits to the immediate left of P

Also, R is an immediate neighbour of O, => R sits between O and Q.

Only one person sit between R and N, => N sits between Q and M.

The remaining vacant place is filled by L. The arrangement :

The pattern is that the first person sits second to the right of second person, but R sits second to the left of P, thus its the odd one out.

=> Ans - (D)
