H is an immediate neighbor of E. Two persons are sitting between A and E. B is sitting second to the left of C. Two persons are sitting between D and C. Neither H nor E is immediate neighbor of C and D. G is sitting third to the right of A. Only one person is sitting between C and E.

Question 1:Â Starting from A, if all the persons are made to sit in the alphabetical order in anticlockwise direction, the positions of how many (excluding A) will remain unchanged?

a)Â One

b)Â Two

c)Â Three

d)Â Four

e)Â None

Solution:

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

Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below:

Eight friends P, Q, R, S, W, X, Y and Z are sitting around a circular table but not necessarily in the same order. Some of them are facing the centre and some others are facing outside (i.e. in a direction opposite to the centre.)
Note :

(i) Facing the same direction means if one person faces the centre then the other also faces the centre and vice-versa.
(ii) Facing the opposite directions means if one person faces the centre then the other faces outside and vice-versa.
(iii) Immediate neighbours facing the same direction means if one person faces the centre then the other also faces the centre and vice-versa.
(iv) Immediate neighbours facing the opposite directions means if one person faces the centre then the other faces outside and vice-versa.
â€¢ R sits second to the right of Y. Only two persons sit between R and W.
â€¢ P sits to the immediate right of W. W faces outside.
â€¢ Only one person sits between P and Z. Immediate neighbours of P face opposite directions.
