Exactly two people live below Yash. Hence, Yash must be living on floor number 3. Now exactly 1 person lives between Yash and Pawan. So Pawan can be at 1 or 5. However, 1 is neither prime nor composite. Hence, Pawan must be at 5. Zaheer lives on an odd numbered floor but not on floor number 7. Hence, Zaheer must be living on floor number 1 (since 3 and 5 are already occupied). Two people live between Zaheer and Rohit. Hence, Rohit must be living at the floor number 4. Sanjay and Tushar live on adjacent floors. So only possibilities are 6,7 or 7, 8. Sanjay does not live on 6. Hence, he must be living at 7 and Tushar must be at 8. Now Uday does not live at 6 so he must be at 2. Thus, Vikas must be at 6. Hence, the final arrangement is as shown below

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.

Hence, PK are immediate neighbours of D.

Hence, Q is to the immediate left of B.

Y is 27m to the east of point F. When one walks 15m to the west from point Y, he reaches Z.

=> Z is 12m to the east of point F and 8m to the east of point E.

Distance between F and H is 5m which is also equal to the distance between Z and J.

Based on the above conditions, these points when plotted on a graph will be :

The numbers in the brackets is the distance between any two points.

Distance between Z & J = 5

Distance between F & Y = 4+8+15 = 27

Required difference = 27-5 = 22 m

Thus, Ans – (B)

Y is 27m to the east of point F. When one walks 15m to the west from point Y, he reaches Z.

=> Z is 12m to the east of point F and 8m to the east of point E.

Distance between F and H is 5m which is also equal to the distance between Z and J.

Based on the above conditions, these points when plotted on a graph will be :

The numbers in the brackets is the distance between any two points.

If a person walks 20 m north from point Z and then take left turn and walk 8 m .

He will be = 20-16 = 4m to the north of point C.

Thus, Ans – (D)

Y is 27m to the east of point F. When one walks 15m to the west from point Y, he reaches Z.

=> Z is 12m to the east of point F and 8m to the east of point E.

Distance between F and H is 5m which is also equal to the distance between Z and J.

Based on the above conditions, these points when plotted on a graph will be :

The numbers in the brackets is the distance between any two points.

Clearly, Z is to the north-east of H.

Thus, Ans – (B)
