Question 97

# Which of the following statements is true with respect to the given information?

Solution

3 persons sit between N and B :-

Only one person sits between N and P.
Now 2 arrangements are possible, P can either sit second to the left of N or second to the right of N.

Considering the case when P sits second to the right of N :-
N's Father sits to the immediate right of P.
N’s sister sits third to the right of N’s father.
Only one person sits between N’s sister and N’s son. M sits third to the left of N’s son.

Now, Only three persons sit between M and N’s husband and N’s daughter sits third to the right of P.
These 2 conditions contradict themselves, hence this can't be the solution.

Thus, P sits second to the left of N.
N's Father sits to the immediate right of P.
N’s sister sits third to the right of N’s father.
Only one person sits between N’s sister and N’s son. M sits third to the left of N’s son.
Only three persons sit between M and N’s husband and N’s daughter sits third to the right of P.
A sits second to the right of N’s husband.
N’s mother sits to the immediate right of C. C is not the husband of N.

Final arrangement looks like :-

A sits second to the right of N's Husband. Hence E.
