Instructions

Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions:
‘p’, ‘Q’. ‘R’, ‘S’, T’, ‘X’, ‘Y’ and ‘Z’ are sitting around a circular table facing the centre.
(A) ‘S’ sits exactly between ‘Z’ and ‘T’.
(B) ‘Z’ sits second to the left of “T’ and second to the right of ‘Q’.
(C) ‘Y’ sits third to the left of ‘X’.
(D) ‘P’ is not an immediate neighbour of ‘Q’.

Question 94

# How many people sit between ‘P’ and ‘Q’ when counted anti-clockwise direction from ‘Q’ ?

Solution

For the sake of clarity, we shall know that ABCDE represents A as the starting point, and on moving anticlockwise we get B. On the other hand, clockwise movement gives E.

The following conclusions can be made:

A and B: The order shall be Q_ZST

Now, Y sits third to the left of X, which means Y's position is third to the left of X (clockwise).

Also, P is not an immediate neighbor of Q.

Hence, a possible combination can be: Y_QXZSTP

R can occupy the blank. Hence, the combination, in a clockwise direction, can be YRQXZSTP

Between P and Q (anti clockwise from Q), we have XZST. Hence, four people.
