**Explanation** :

Initially A can be seated on any chair and E is three positions to the left of A. Hence, the arrangement will be:

E is equidistant from A and D. Hence, D is three positions away from E. Also, D is two positions to the left of H. i.e. H is two positions to right of D.

G is farthest from E. The farthest person is always opposite.

F and E are adjacent to C. This is possible when C sits to the right of E and F sits to the right of C.

The only position left for B is between H and D. Hence, the final arrangement is:

Hence, G is second to the left of B.

Hence, option (b).

**Explanation** :

Initially Coach 2 can be seated on any of the chairs. Coach 1 is to the immediate right of Coach 2, hence the arrangement will be:

Coach 1 is equally far from the Manager and Physio. Hence, Manager and Physio can sit 2 places to the left or right of Coach 1.

Also, Vice Captain is sitting to the immediate right of Manager. This is possible only when Manager sits two places to the right of Coach 1. Hence, the final arrangement is:

The Captain is two places away from Coach 2. Similarly Manager and Physio are two places away from Coach 1.

**Answer the following questions based on the information given below.**

A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H are eight friends sitting around a circular table, facing the centre. They live in exactly one of the following cities viz., Chennai, Ludhiana, Haridwar, Gurgaon, Pune, Chandigarh, Bhopal and Mangalore (in no particular order).

- B sits to the immediate left of the person who lives in Haridwar and is adjacent to G who lives in Ludhiana.
- C sits exactly opposite D and is adjacent to F who lives in Gurgaon.
- The person who lives in Chandigarh sits to the immediate right of E.
- G is adjacent to D and the person who lives in Pune.
- A sits opposite the person who lives in Haridwar
- H does not sit next to someone who lives in Bhopal or Ludhiana.
- H is to the immediate left of A and lives in Chennai.

- (a)
Chennai

- (b)
Ludhiana

- (c)

Answer: Option C

Join our Telegram Group for CAT/MBA Preparation.

**Explanation** :

Let the seats be 1-8 as shown below:

A is opposite the person who lives in Haridwar. Let A be seated on seat 1. Hence, the person from Haridwar will sit on seat 5.

B is to the immediate left of the person who lives in Haridwar. Hence, B sits on seat 6.

H is to the immediate left of A and lives in Chennai i.e. H lives in Chennai and sits on seat 2.

Also, B is adjacent ot G, who lives in Ludhiana. Since one neighbour of B is on seat 5, that means G lives in Ludhiana and sits on seat 7.

G is adjacent to D and the person who lives in Pune. From the figure above, B lives in Pune and D sits on seat 8.

C is opposite D. Hence, C sits on seat 4. Also, C is adjacent to F, who lives in Gurgaon. One of the two neighbours of C lives in Haridwar (seat 5).

Hence, F lives in Gurgaon and sits on seat 3. Hence, E sits on seat 5 (only remaining seat).

Now, three cities are left - Chandigarh, Bhopal, Mangalore - and three people are left - C, A, D.

The person who lives in Chandigarh is to the immediate right of E. Hence, C lives in Chandigarh.

H is not next to someone who lives in Bhopal. Hence, D lives in Bhopal and A lives in Mangalore. Hence, the final arrangement is:

Hence, B lives in Pune.

Hence, option (c).

Answer: Option C

Join our Telegram Group for CAT/MBA Preparation.

**Explanation** :

Number the seats 1-8 as shown:

A faces the centre and H is third to the right of A. Let A be seated on seat 1. Hence, H sits on seat 6.

Also, the person opposite H faces outside. Hence, the person on seat 2 faces outside.

C is not an immediate neighbour of A or H. Hence, C sit on seat 3 or 4. Also, C faces outside.

B is third to the right of C. If C is on seat 3, H is already third to his right. Hence, C cannot be on seat 3. Hence, C is on seat 4 and B sits on seat 7.

G is second to the left of B. If B faces the centre, A is already second to the left of B. Hence, B faces outside and G is on seat 5.

Hence, all three people facing outside are found (B, C, seat 2). Hence, the remaining people (A, H. seats 3, 5, 8) face the centre.

C is second to the right of F. Hence, F faces outside and is on seat 2.

D is third to the left of E. Since both face the centre, E is on seat 8 and D is on seat 3. Hence, the final arrangement is:

Hence, E sits exactly between B and G.

Hence, option (c).
