Instructions

Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions.

B, C, D, E, F, G, H and I are sitting around a circular table facing the centre but not necessarily in the same order.

• Only one person sits between D and E. B sits to the immediate right of E.
• Only three people sit between F and G.
• C sits to the immediate left of G.
• G is not an immediate neighbour of H.
• E sits second to the left of C.

Question 87

# If all the persons are made to sit in alphabetical order in anti­ clockwise direction, starting from B, the positions of how many, excluding B, would remain unchanged ?

Solution

Let’s first number the 8 seats.

We know that C sits to the immediate left of G and E sits second to the left of C.

Thus, let C sit at 5. This implies, G sits at 4 and E at 7.

Only one person sits between E and D. Thus, D has to sit at 1. (5 is already occupied.)

Only three people sit between F and G. This implies, F has to sit opposite G, at 8.

Since H and G are not neighbors I will sit at 3 and H at 2.

The final arrangement:
