Eight persons- M, N, O, P, W, X, Y and Z are sitting around a circular table facing the centre, with equal distances between each other but not necessarily in the same order. M sits second to the left of O. P is an immediate neighbour of O and W. Only three persons sit between 0 and Y. X sits to the immediate right of W. Z is neither an immediate neighbour of W nor O.

Question 185

# What will come in the place of question mark (?) in the following series based on the given arrangement ?MZ PW YN NY ?

Solution

M sits second to the left of O. Only three persons sit between O and Y, => O sits opposite Y and second to the left of M.

P is an immediate neighbour of O and W. X sits to the immediate right of W, => P sits to the immediate left of W and O to the immediate left of P.

Z is neither an immediate neighbour of W nor O, => Z sits to the immediate left of M and the vacant place is filled by N, i.e. to the immediate right of M.

Series : MZ PW YN NY ?

1st person : M (+3 positions) = P (+3 positions) = Y (+3 positions) = N (+3 positions) = W

2nd person : Z (-3 positions) = W (-3 positions) = N (-3 positions) = Y (-3 positions) = P

Thus, missing term = WP

=> Ans - (A)
