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

Hence, P and D are at extreme ends.

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

Hence, it is evident that S faces A. Option A is correct.

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 the given arrangement, A is two places right of C which faces P.

B is two places to the right of A which faces S.

D is two places to the right of E which faces T.

Hence, the option correct option is B.

From the first three conditions, two solns are possible

S _ _ Q _ _

_ _ 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.

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

F faces V who is second to the right of T.

Hence, option C is correct.

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.

G is fifth to the left of C and F is fifth to the right of A. Hence, there are two configurations possible:

G A _ _ _ C F and A G _ _ _ F C

As F is not at either end, only the second configuration is possible.

As E is second to the left of D, the placement is as follows

A G E B D F C

Hence, D is the reporter. The Doctor is to the left of the Engineer and the Painter is 4th to the right of the Engineer. Hence, two configurations are possible:

Doctor – Eng – _ _ Rep – Painter – _

or _ – Doc – Eng – _ Rep – Pain – _

As the Lawyer and Teacher are next to each other, the second configuration is impossible. Hence, the configuration is

Doc – Eng – Tea – Law – Rep – Pain – Act

A – G – E – B – D – F – C

Hence, A is a Doctor.

G is fifth to the left of C and F is fifth to the right of A. Hence, there are two configurations possible:

G A _ _ _ C F and A G _ _ _ F C

As F is not at either end, only the second configuration is possible.

As E is second to the left of D, the placement is as follows

A G E B D F C

Hence, D is the reporter. The Doctor is to the left of the Engineer and the Painter is 4th to the right of the Engineer. Hence, two configurations are possible:

Doctor – Eng – _ _ Rep – Painter – _

or _ – Doc – Eng – _ Rep – Pain – _

As the Lawyer and Teacher are next to each other, the second configuration is impossible. Hence, the configuration is

Doc – Eng – Tea – Law – Rep – Pain – Act

A – G – E – B – D – F – C

Hence, Option D will be the answer.

8 people S, T, U, V, W, X, Y and Z are sitting across a circular table and according to the given information order of their seating is given in the below diagram where W and Y are facing to the center and remaining are facing outwards to the center. Hence, V is the immediate neighbour of Z.

8 people S, T, U, V, W, X, Y and Z are sitting across a circular table and according to the given information order of their seating is given in the below diagram where W and Y are facing to the center and the remaining are facing outwards to the center. Hence, X is sitting 2nd to the left of U

8 people S, T, U, V, W, X, Y and Z are sitting across a circular table and according to the given information order of their seating is given in the below diagram where W and Y are facing to the center and the remaining are facing outwards to the center. Hence, Y is sitting 3rd left to T (As they are facing outward from the centre)

8 people S, T, U, V, W, X, Y and Z are sitting across a circular table and according to the given information order of their seating is given in the below diagram where W and Y are facing to the center and the remaining are facing outwards to the center. Hence, neighbours of X are W and Y

Z, T, V and X are facing towards outwards from the center but Y is facing towards the center hence, answer will be C

K is the professor.

Except J and Engineer, all the other pairs are opposite to each other.

Therefore J and Engineer is the answer

Second to the right of scientist is L.

According to the figure, only option 1, which says that the lawyer is second to the left of doctor, is correct.

We start by placing M. To find people to one’s right, we move in the anti-clockwise direction and for left in the clockwise direction. With M placed, we can place B. Four places to the left or right will essentially be opposite spot. Hence, we can place K. We can place P with respect to B and W from P. Only three spots remain, so they must be arranged between H-D-Q as shown below.

Hence, H is third to the right of B.
