Question 14: Four of the following five are alike in a certain way based on the give arrangements and so form a group.Which is the one that does not belong to that group ?

a) A-T

b) B-T

c) F-P

d) C-V

e) E-Q

From 1, we know that G sits at one of the corners, so let’s fix G at 1.

From 2 and 6, we know that D sits at one of the corners but does not sit opposite G.
D can sit at either 3 or 7.

If D sits at 7:
From 4, F sits at 6. From 8, A sits opposite F, so A sits at 2.
From 7, B sits second to the right of F, thus B sits at 8.
From 5, H sits third to the left of E, but the only vacant places are 3, 4 and 5. There is no way to place H and E, thus, this case is not possible.

If D sits at 3:
From 4, F sits to the immediate right of D, thus, F sits at 2.
From 8, A sits opposite A, so A sits at 6.
From 5, H sits third to the left of E, there are two ways possible – E sits at 5 and H at 8 or E at 8 and H at 5.
From 7, B sits at 4.
C will occupy the only vacant place 7.

Since H and E can interchange their positions, two arrangements are possible. Option B is the correct answer.

Let us number the seating positions 1 to 7 from left to right as shown.
From statements 4 and 1 we know that Q is third to the left of U and V is second to the right of T.
But from statement 3 we know that T is to the right of U.
This is possible only when (Q, U, T, V) are sitting in positions (1, 4, 5, 7) in that order.
Now from statement 2 we know that P is third to the left of R. This means that P and R must be sitting in positions 3 and 6 respectively.
Now the only remaining person S must be sitting in position 2.
Hence the seating arrangement will be as shown below.

Let us number the positions in row 1 from 1 to 6 and in row 2 from 7 to 12 as shown in the figure below.

From the fourth statement we know that B sits third to the right of D.
From first and eighth statements we know that B is opposite R and D is opposite Q.
From statement 6 we know that neither R nor Q sits at an extreme end. ‘
This means that neither B nor D sits at an extreme end.
From this we understand that B and D sit in positions 2 and 5 respectively.
This means that R and Q sit in positions 8 and 11 respectively.
From statement 9 we know that C and F sit adjacent to each other. Thus they must be sitting in positions 3 and 4 in any order.
From statements 2 and 5 we know that F is sitting opposite T who is not adjacent to Q.
This means that F and C must be sitting in positions 3 and 4 respectively and T must be sitting in position 9.
From statement 7 we know that E and A must be sitting in positions 1 and 6 respectively.
Now from statement 3 we know that U must be in position 7.
Now the only remaining persons P and S can be sitting in positions 10 and 12 in any order.
Thus the final seating arrangement is as shown below.

Let us number the positions as shown in the diagram.
N is at one of the corners(given). Let us place N in position 1.
R is the left neighbour of N(given). R should come in position 8.
S and M face opposite directions but do not face each other (given). Hence, S and M must be at the edges of the table (positions 2 and 6 are the only possible positions left for them).
T is two places to the right of M(given). Hence, T should be in position 4.
3,5,7 are the only positions left and O, P, Q are the only people left to occupy them.
Given that, O and P do not face each other, P and Q do not face each other.
Hence, O and Q should face each other and P should be in position 5.
Q is closer to S to its right that of its left (given). Hence, Q will be in position 7.
The following is the final arrangement.

The arrangement when arranged alphabetically looks as shown below.

None of the given pairs are neighbors in both the arrangements.
Hence, option E is the correct answer.

Let us number the positions as shown in the diagram.
Y is at one of the corners.(given) let us place Y in position 1.
S and Z face opposite directions but do not face each other(given). Hence, S and Z must be at the opposite corners(positions 1 and 7).
X is not facing anyone(given), X must be at a corner and should be facing Y.
Hence X will be in position 5.
U is 3 places to the right of X(given). Hence, U will be in position 2.
The person facing V is 2 places to the right of U(given). Hence, V should be in position 8.
W is third to the left of Z.(given). If Z is in position 7 there will not be any position left for W to occupy. Hence, Z should be in position 3 and S in position 7.
The only position left is 4 and it will be occupied by T.
The following is the final arrangement.

The following is the order when arranged alphabetically.

In both the arrangements W and X are neighbors.
Hence, option D is the correct answer.

Let us number the positions as shown in the diagram.
Neither F nor N is sitting at the extreme ends and they have 4 members between them.(given).Therefore F andN will be in positions 2 and 7.
F has only one member to his left(given), F will be in position 2 and N will be in position 7.
There are exactly 3 members to the left of D(given), D will be in position 4.
B is only one sitting between D and L(given), B and L can only be in position 5 and 6 respectively.
The Number of people to the left of P is same as the number of people to the right of J(given), P and J will be in position 1 and 8 as there are no other positions available for them.
H will occupy the position 3.

There are two different seating arrangements possible.

Let’s number the positions as shown below

“C sits sixth to the right of B.” ==> two arrangements possible C and B on 8th, 2nd spot respectively or 7th, 1st spot respectively.

Case 1: B and C on spots 2 and 8

“F is a neighbor of C and sits second to the right of A.” ==> F and A sit on spots 7 and 5 respectively

“E sits next to the left of G.” ==> the only possible arrangement is, E and G on spots 3 and 4 respectively.

“D is not a neighbor of A.” ==> D on spot 1.

the following arrangement could be derived in this case

Case 2: B and C on spots 1 and 7 respectively.

“F is a neighbor of C and sits second to the right of A.”, “A is not a neighbor of C” ==> F and A sit on spots 6 and 4 respectively

“E sits next to the left of G.” ==> the only possible arrangement is, E and G on spots 2 and 3 respectively.

“D is not a neighbor of A.” ==> D on spot 8.

the following arrangement could be derived in this case

Two seating arrangements are possible.

From (vii) we know that B sit in row 1 and from (i) we know that he sits diagonally opposite to A. So, B can sit on seat 1 or seat 2. He can’t sit on 3 as in that case A will sit on 6 and G on 5 which can’t be possible as he doesn’t sit on extreme. For the same reason, B on seat 4 is also not possible.
Case 1: B sits on seat 1
This means that A sits on 8. In this case B can’t sit opposite to G. So, from (iii) he sits opposite to E and H sits opposite to G. Also, H must be in row 1. So, G sits opposite to H and C opposite to D. So, G and C must be seated on either 6 or 7. But in both the cases, G will be diagonally opposite to D.

Case 2: B sits on seat 2
This means A is seated on 7. So, only place left for G is 6 as he can’t sit on extreme. So, in this case B sits opposite to G, this means H sits opposite to E. C and D also sit opposite to each other. This, means A must be seated opposite to F. Since, A doesn’t sit adjacent to E, C must be seated on 8. This means that D is on 4. Since H sits in the same row as B, he sits on 1 and E on 5. The complete arrangement is as shown below-

We can see that only one arrangement is possible.

From the first point, we know that GFE are sitting on consecutive seats. A is 6th to the left of E means E should occupy either 7th or 8th position.
The possibilities are
– A – – – G F E or
A – – – G F E –
Now H is 6th to the right of C.
This case can be satisfied by only second arrangement.
A C – – G F E H.
There are two possible seating arrangements:A C B D G F E H or A C D B G F E H.
If we arrange A B C D E F G H, then A, D, H are at the same place in the first arrangement and A, H are in the same place in the second arrangement.
The number can be 2 or 3. Hence the answer cannot be determined.

From the first point, we know that GFE are sitting on consecutive seats. A is 6th to the left of E means E should occupy either 7th or 8th position.
The possibilities are
– A – – – G F E or
A – – – G F E –
Now H is 6th to the right of C.
This case can be satisfied by only second arrangement.
A C – – G F E H.
There are two possible seating arrangements:A C B D G F E H or A C D B G F E H.

From the first point, we know that GFE are sitting on consecutive seats. A is 6th to the left of E means E should occupy either 7th or 8th position.
The possibilities are
– A – – – G F E or
A – – – G F E –
Now H is 6th to the right of C.
This case can be satisfied by only second arrangement.
A C – – G F E H.
There are two possible seating arrangements:A C B D G F E H or A C D B G F E H.
The given case is of ACDBGFEH. C is to the immediate left of D.

From the first point, we know that GFE are sitting on consecutive seats. A is 6th to the left of E means E should occupy either 7th or 8th position.
The possibilities are
– A – – – G F E or
A – – – G F E –
Now H is 6th to the right of C.
This case can be satisfied by only second arrangement.
A C – – G F E H.
There are two possible seating arrangements:A C B D G F E H or A C D B G F E H.

From the first point, we know that GFE are sitting on consecutive seats. A is 6th to the left of E means E should occupy either 7th or 8th position.
The possibilities are
– A – – – G F E or
A – – – G F E –
Now H is 6th to the right of C.
This case can be satisfied by only second arrangement.
A C – – G F E H.
There are two possible seating arrangements:A C B D G F E H or A C D B G F E H.

From the first three conditions, two solns are possible

S _ _ Q _ _

_ E _ _ _ _

or

_ _ S _ _ Q

_ _ _ E _ _

As B and F have two people between them and neither are at the extremes, they must by in the second and fifth place. Hence, we can rule out configuration 1.

From the 6th condition, B should be fifth from left and F second.

Thus, we get

P _ S _ _ Q

_ F _ E B _

As C is second to the left of A, C must be first from left and A third. Hence, D is last from left. Thus, we can place all the people as follows

$\downarrow$ P V S T R Q

$\uparrow$ C F A E B D

In all pairs except E-Q, the first person faces an immediate neighbour of the second person.

Hence, option E is correct.
