Instructions

Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below :

Eight persons N, O, P, Q, R, S, T and U are sitting around a circular area at equal distances between each other, but not necessarily in the same order. Some of the people are facing the centre while some face outside (i.e. in a direction opposite to the centre).

(NOTE : Same direction means that if one person is facing the centre then the other person also faces the centre and vice-versa. Opposite direction means that if one person is facing the centre then the other person faces outside and vice-versa.)

R sits second to the right of T. T face the centre. O sits third to the left of R. R and O face opposite directions. Immediate neighbours of O face the centre. P sits second to the right of O. U sits to the immediate left of P. N sits second to the left of Q. Q faces the same direction as O. Q is not an immediate neighbour of T. Immediate neighbours of R face opposite directions. (i.e. if one neighbour faces the centre the other neighbour faces outside and vice-versa.)

Question 78

# Which of the following is true regarding S as per the given seating arrangement ?

Solution

R sits second to the right of T and T faces the centre.

O sits third to the left of R. R and O face opposite directions, => Let R faces outside, and thus O faces the centre.

P sits second to the right of O, => P sits to the immediate left of T.

U sits to the immediate left of P, => P faces the centre and U sits between O and P.

N sits second to the left of Q. Q faces the same direction as O. Q is not an immediate neighbour of T, => Q faces the centre and sits to the immediate left of R and N sits between T and R.

Immediate neighbours of R face opposite directions, => N faces outside.

Immediate neighbours of O face the centre, => U and S faces the centre.

The only true statement is that S faces the centre.

=> Ans - (C)
