Instructions

Study the following information to answer the given questions.
Eight friends— J, K, L, M, S, T, U and V are seated in a straight line, but not necessarily in the same order. Some are them are facing north while some face south.
♦ K sits second from the end of the line. U sits third to the left of K.
♦ T faces south. V sits fourth to the left of T. T is not an immediate neighbour of U. T does not sit at any of the extreme ends of the line.
♦ Both the immediate neighbours of J face north. J does not sit at any of the extreme ends of the line.
♦ J faces a direction opposite to that of V. (i.e. If V faces north then J faces south and vice­versa.)
♦ L sits second to the left of J.
♦ Immediate neighbours of K face opposite directions (i.e. if one neighbour faces north then the other faces south and vice­versa.)
♦ Persons sitting at extreme ends face opposite directions (i.e. If one person faces north then the other person faces south and vice­versa.)
♦ As many people sit between V and J as between U and S.
♦ Immediate neighbours of U face same directions (i.e. if one neighbour faces north then the other also faces north and vice­versa).

Question 8

# Who amongst the following sits third to the left of S ?

Solution

K sits second from the end of the line and U sits third to the left of K, => Let K sits 2nd from left end, thus K faces south so that U sits 3rd to his left.

T faces south. V sits fourth to the left of T. T is not an immediate neighbour of U. T does not sit at any of the extreme ends of the line, => T sits to the immediate left of K and V sits 2nd from right end.

Both the immediate neighbours of J face north. J does not sit at any of the extreme ends of the line, => J sits between U and V, while both U and V faces north.

J faces a direction opposite to that of V, => J faces south direction.

L sits second to the left of J, => L sits at extreme right end.

As many people sit between V and J as between U and S, => S sits to the immediate left of U and thus M at left end.

Immediate neighbours of K face opposite directions, => M faces north.

Persons sitting at extreme ends face opposite directions, => L faces south.

Immediate neighbours of U face same directions, => S faces south direction.

V sits third to the left of S.

=> Ans - (C)
