Study the following information to answer the given questions.

Eight Mends — A, B, C, D, L, M, N and O are seated in a straight line, but not necessarily in the same order. Some of them are facing north while some are facing south. Only three people sit to the left of N. B sits second to the right of N. C sits third to the left of O. O is not an immediate neighbour of B. O does not sit at any of the extreme ends of the line. C and O face same direction (i.e., if C faces north then O also faces north and vice versa.) Both the immediate neighbours of D face north. D does not sit at any of the extreme ends of the line. Person sitting at extreme ends face opposite directions (i.e., if one person faces north then the other faces south and vice-versa.) Both the immediate neighbours of N face same direction (i.e., if one neighbour faces north then the other also faces north and vice versa.) A sits second to the left of L. D faces a direction opposite to L. (i.e. if L faces north then D faces south and vice-versa.)

Question 37

# Who amongst the following represent the immediate neighbours of the persons sitting at the extreme ends of the line ?

Solution

Only three people sit to the left of N, => Let N sits 4th from left end and faces north. Also, B sits second to the right of N.

C sits third to the left of O. O is not an immediate neighbour of B. O does not sit at any of the extreme ends of the line, => O sits 2nd to the left of N and faces south, while C sits between N and B.

C and O face same direction, => C also faces south.

Both the immediate neighbours of D face north. D does not sit at any of the extreme ends of the line, => D sits 2nd to the right of C, and B face north and the person who will sit at extreme right end will also face north.

Person sitting at extreme ends face opposite directions, => Person sitting at extreme left end will face south direction.

Both the immediate neighbours of N face same direction, => Person sitting at immediate left of N will face south.

A sits second to the left of L, => L sits at extreme left end and A sits to the immediate left of O.

D faces a direction opposite to L, => D faces north.

D and O are the immediate neighbours of the persons sitting at the extreme ends of the line.

=> Ans - (A)
