General Knowledge Questions & Answers PDF

**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (E)**

G is sitting third to the right of A and there are two persons between A and E.

=> E is sitting third to the left of A.

B is sitting second to the left of C and there is one person between C and E.

=> C is sitting second to the left of E and B is sitting to the immediate left of G.

Also, there are 2 person sitting between C and D but D is not sitting adjacent to E.

=> D is sitting third to the left of C and since D is sitting second to the right of F, => F is sitting to the immediate left of A.

H is sitting adjacent to E but not to C, => H is sitting to the immediate right of E.

C is related to D, => D sits third to the left of C.

H is related to C, => C sits third to the left of H.

In the same way, E is related to G because G sits third to the left of E.

=> Ans – (E)

**2) Answer (B)**

P sits third to the left of M and is an immediate neighbour of both O and S.

Only one person sits between O and Q, => O sits to the immediate left of P

Also, R is an immediate neighbour of O, => R sits between O and Q.

Only one person sit between R and N, => N sits between Q and M.

The remaining vacant place is filled by L. The arrangement :

M is related to R, => R sits third to the right of M

P is related to M, => M sits third to the right of P.

Similarly, Q sits third to the right of L, => L is related to Q.

=> Ans – (B)

**3) Answer (D)**

P sits third to the left of M and is an immediate neighbour of both O and S.

Only one person sits between O and Q, => O sits to the immediate left of P

Also, R is an immediate neighbour of O, => R sits between O and Q.

Only one person sit between R and N, => N sits between Q and M.

The remaining vacant place is filled by L. The arrangement :

The pattern is that the first person sits second to the right of second person, but R sits second to the left of P, thus its the odd one out.

=> Ans – (D)

**4) Answer (A)**

It is given that all are facing center and S is sitting 2nd to the right of T. So, the initial arrangement will be :

Now it is given that T is 2nd to the right of Q and R is third to the right of J, So the possible pattern is

Now it is given that R is second to the left to P and hence the final pattern of sitting is

**5) Answer (D)**

It is given that all are facing center and S is sitting 2nd to the right of T. So, the initial arrangement will be :

Now it is given that T is 2nd to the right of Q and R is third to the right of J, So the possible pattern is

Now it is given that R is second to the left to P and hence the final pattern of sitting is

**6) Answer (C)**

It is given that all are facing center and S is sitting 2nd to the right of T. So, the initial arrangement will be :

Now it is given that T is 2nd to the right of Q and R is third to the right of J, So the possible pattern is

Now it is given that R is second to the left to P and hence the final pattern of sitting is

**7) Answer (B)**

Now it is given that R is second to the left to P and hence the final pattern of sitting is

**8) Answer (A)**

Only three people sit between X and the one who likes Zodiac. V sits second to the right of X.

Now, Y doesn’t likes Zodiac and isn’t seated immediately next to the one who likes Zodiac. Also the one who likes Nautica sits third to the left of Y. Hence two possible arrangements :-

1. Y is seated second to the left of X.

2. Y is seated immediately to the right of X.

First Case : Y is seated to the left of X.

Only three people sit between Y and the one who likes Chemistry.

The one who likes Puma sits to the immediate left of K. K is not an immediate neighbor of V.

Only two people sit between the ones who like Puma and Zara.

Now, M has to be one of the immediate neighbors of the one who likes Zara. This isn’t possible in this arrangement, hence this Case is rejected.

Second Case : Y is seated immediately to the right of X.

Only three people sit between Y and the one who likes Chemistry.

Now the one who likes Puma has to sit to the immediate right of K. Also K can’t be an immediate neighbor of V, hence only one such case is possible :-

Only two people sit between the ones who like Puma and Zara. Hence, X likes Zara.

M is one of the immediate neighbours of the one who likes Zara. Hence, M sits to the left of X.

The one who likes Park Avenue sits to the immediate right of L. Thus, M has to like Park Avenue and L is the one who likes Nautica (no other pair is possible)

Now, since W doesn’t like Chemistry, W has to like Puma and thus N has to like Puma.

Y likes Mango.

The final arrangement :-

In this question, the pattern is (Person) — (brand the one who sits second to the right of the given person likes)

Only M — Nautica doesn’t belong to that group and hence is the odd one out.

**9) Answer (E)**

B is sitting second to the left of A and is C is second to the left of G and third to the right of H. We have 2 possible arrangements for this case.

Now we have also been given that F is third to the right of F is third to the right of E. We can see that such a situation is not possible in the first case. Hence we can rule out the case I. Thus, we are left with only case II. There is only one possible way in which F could be third to the right of A. Hence E must be sitting between A and H and F must be sitting to the immediate left of C. The remaining place between F and H would be occupied by D. Since there are 8 people and no two females are adjacent to each other, so females and males must be alternate to each other. Since E is not a female so both her neighbors must be females.Hence our final arrangement would look like the one below.

Each of the options have alternate people in the clockwise direction. This pattern is not followed in option E as D and H are consecutive not alternate. Hence Option E is the odd one out.

**10) Answer (D)**

Let’s start by numbering the chairs from 1 to 8 in clockwise direction. Now F and D sit opposite to each other. Assume F sits at 1. So, D sits at 5. Now, A and D sit next to each other. So, A can sit at 4 or 6. But when A sits at 4, B’s place will be occupied by F. So, A sit at 6 an B at 3. H and F sit adjacent to each other. So, H must be either at 2 or 8. But, when H is at 2, A will be opposite to him which is not possible a/c to (v). So, H is at 8. Since C is equidistant from E and G, C must be at 7 and E and G must occupy 2 and 4 in some order.

The following figure shows the complete arrangement:

All except pair D necessarily sit two places away from each other. C and E may or may not follow the pattern.

**11) Answer (D)**

The data given to us is:

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

● C is an immediate neighbour of both G and A. E sits second to the left of C.

● Two people sit between E and H.

● B is an immediate neighbour of G. Only one person sits between B and F.

The data can be intrepreted in diagaramatic form as:

G is related to D in same way as B is related to E and A is related to H.

**12) Answer (D)**

P is facing the person immediate right to the person Dena bank similarly person from PNB bank faces a person who is immediate right to the person from Bank of Maharashtra. Hence for D, person from Indian bank faces the person who is immediate right to D.

**13) Answer (B)**

Since one of S and Q sit at the extreme, Q has to sit at the right end and S three places to the right of him. Now that Q is fixed, we can place E as shown in the figure. B and F can’t be at extreme and 2 people are sitting between them. Also, B faces the person who sits third to left of P. Thus, B, F and P can only be placed as shown in the figure. Now C sits second to the left of A. So, C is at the extreme and A second to the right of him. This means D is at the rightmost corner. So, R must sit adjacent to Q and T adjacent to R. The arrangement is as shown below-

P faces the person who sits second to the left of A. S faces the person who sits second to the left of B. Similarly, T faces E who sits second to the left of D.

**14) Answer (E)**

From (i),(iii),(iv) and (vi) we can infer that A is sitting on one of the longer sides adjacent to B and not sitting between B and D. So, we get the following two cases.

Case 1:

Case 2:

From (v) we have the following arrangements:

Case 1:

Case 2:

From (vii) we have the following cases:

Case 1:

But this contradicts the condition that name and jacket colour initials should be different. So case 1 is rejected.

Case 2:

Since, people having names which are consecutive letters can neither sit adjacent to each other nor opposite to each other. So, E can only wear the amber coloured jacket. F or G can wear the hazel coloured jacket but not H. If F wears hazel jacket then only H can sit opposite to it. But, if G wears hazel jacket then neither H nor F can sit opposite to it. So, this case is not possible. So, the arrangement looks as shown below:

Although we know about the positions of B and C but do not have information on the colour of jacket they are wearing. So, the answer cannot be determined. Hence, option E.

**15) Answer (A)**

From (i),(iii),(iv) and (vi) we can infer that A is sitting on one of the longer sides adjacent to B and not sitting between B and D. So, we get the following two cases.

Case 1:

Case 2:

From (v) we have the following arrangements:

Case 1:

Case 2:

From (vii) we have the following cases:

Case 1:

But this contradicts the condition that name and jacket colour initials should be different. So case 1 is rejected.

Case 2:

Since, people having names which are consecutive letters can neither sit adjacent to each other nor opposite to each other. So, E can only wear the amber coloured jacket. F or G can wear the hazel coloured jacket but not H. If F wears hazel jacket then only H can sit opposite to it. But, if G wears hazel jacket then neither H nor F can sit opposite to it. So, this case is not possible. So, the arrangement looks as shown below:

B and H are the neighbours of A. Hence, option A is correct.

**16) Answer (D)**

From (i),(iii),(iv) and (vi) we can infer that A is sitting on one of the longer sides adjacent to B and not sitting between B and D. So, we get the following two cases.

Case 1:

Case 2:

From (v) we have the following arrangements:

Case 1:

Case 2:

From (vii) we have the following cases:

Case 1:

But this contradicts the condition that name and jacket colour initials should be different. So case 1 is rejected.

Case 2:

Since, people having names which are consecutive letters can neither sit adjacent to each other nor opposite to each other. So, E can only wear the amber coloured jacket. F or G can wear the hazel coloured jacket but not H. If F wears hazel jacket then only H can sit opposite to it. But, if G wears hazel jacket then neither H nor F can sit opposite to it. So, this case is not possible. So, the arrangement looks as shown below:

H is wearing the grey coloured jacket. Hence, option D.

**17) Answer (D)**

Case 1:

Case 2:

From (v) we have the following arrangements:

Case 1:

Case 2:

From (vii) we have the following cases:

Case 1:

Case 2:

Clearly, F is wearing hazel coloured jacket. Hence, option C.

**18) Answer (C)**

Case 1:

Case 2:

From (v) we have the following arrangements:

Case 1:

Case 2:

From (vii) we have the following cases:

Case 1:

Case 2:

Among the given options only F and E sit diagonally opposite to each other. Hence, option C.

**19) Answer (E)**

It is given that, D sits at one of the corner and is facing away from the centre and A sits 3rd to the right of D also, C sits 2nd to the left of A, therefore, 2 possible arrangements are:

It is given that E and F are facing each other such that E is closer to A than F and there is only 1 possible arrangement for that in both the cases as shown below

Given that, B sits third to the left of E and there are 3 people sitting in between A and H therefore,

2nd diagram will get eliminated. Also given Only 1 of the neighbour of B is facing towards the centre therefore G will face away from the table as shown below:-

Therefore, if B is looking away from the table then H is looking towards the table and hence, G sits third to the right of H.

Hence, option E is the correct option.

**20) Answer (B)**

It is given that, D sits at one of the corner and is facing away from the centre and A sits 3rd to the right of D also, C sits 2nd to the left of A, therefore, 2 possible arrangements are:

It is given that E and F are facing each other such that E is closer to A than F and there is only 1 possible arrangement for that in both the cases as shown below

Given that, B sits third to the left of E and there are 3 people sitting in between A and H therefore,

2nd diagram will get eliminated. Also given Only 1 of the neighbor of B is facing towards the centre therefore G will face away from the table as shown below:-

Therefore, : If B and C exchange their positions then B, H are the new neighbours of D

Hence, option A is the correct option.
