Reasoning Questions for IBPS Clerk Prelims 2016







Directions (1-6): Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below:

Ten friends J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R and S are sitting at a rectangular table in such a way that four of them sit at the corners, two each on the longer sides and one each on the smaller sides, but not necessarily in the same order. Some of them are facing the centre while the rest are not facing the centre. Not more than two friends sitting together face the same direction.

J sits on one of the smaller sides and third to the right of O.
R is not an immediate neighbor of J, K or O, but sits on the immediate right of L, who is not facing the centre.
Only two among four sitting on the corners face outward.
Q and M are sitting on the immediate left and third to the left of S respectively.
One of the four friends sitting on the corner is R.
N sits on the immediate left of M and is not an immediate neighbor of L. J and N face the same direction.
M and P sit diagonally and face opposite directions.
Five of them face the same direction.
Note: Facing the same direction means if one person faces the centre then the other person also faces the centre and if one person faces outward then the other person also faces outward. Facing the opposite direction means if one person faces the centre then the other person faces outward and vice versa.
