Directions (11-15): Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below:

Eight people P, Q, R, S, T, U, V and W are sitting around a square table facing outside the centre. Four of them are sitting at the corners and four are sitting along the side. They are also from different countries — India, US, PAK, UK, Bangladesh, UAE, Brazil and Nepal. Q is not an immediate neighbour of W. The person who is from PAK sits third to the right of the one who is from Bangladesh. V, who is from US sits second to the left of U, who is from India. V who sits at one of the corners also sits third to the left of the one who is from UK. There are 3 people sit between P and R, who is from Nepal. S is not an immediate neighbour of both P and Q, who is from UK. T sits opposite to the one who is from US. Q sits second to the left of P, who is from Brazil.

Q11. Who amongst the following is from UAE?
P
Q
R
W
None of these
Solution:
(i). Q is not an immediate neighbour of W. Q sits second to the left of P, who is from Brazil. Q is from UK. V, who is from US sits second to the left of U, who is from India. V who sits at one of the corners also sits third to the left of the one who is from UK. T sits opposite to the one who is from US. From this we get only one case.

(ii). There are 3 people sit between P and R, who is from Nepal. S is not an immediate neighbour of P and Q, so there is only one possible place for S to sit i.e immediate left of V. The person who is from PAK sits third to the right of the one who is from Bangladesh, so T is from Bangladesh and S is from PAK. And thus we get the final arrangement.

Q12. What is S’s position with respect to U?
Third to the right
Second to the right
Third to the left
Second to the left
Fourth to the right
Solution:
(i). Q is not an immediate neighbour of W. Q sits second to the left of P, who is from Brazil. Q is from UK. V, who is from US sits second to the left of U, who is from India. V who sits at one of the corners also sits third to the left of the one who is from UK. T sits opposite to the one who is from US. From this we get only one case.

(ii). There are 3 people sit between P and R, who is from Nepal. S is not an immediate neighbour of P and Q, so there is only one possible place for S to sit i.e immediate left of V. The person who is from PAK sits third to the right of the one who is from Bangladesh, so T is from Bangladesh and S is from PAK. And thus we get the final arrangement.

Q13. How many people are sitting between the one who is from Brazil and U when counted in clockwise direction from the one who is from Brazil?
One
Two
Three
Four
None
Solution:
(i). Q is not an immediate neighbour of W. Q sits second to the left of P, who is from Brazil. Q is from UK. V, who is from US sits second to the left of U, who is from India. V who sits at one of the corners also sits third to the left of the one who is from UK. T sits opposite to the one who is from US. From this we get only one case.

(ii). There are 3 people sit between P and R, who is from Nepal. S is not an immediate neighbour of P and Q, so there is only one possible place for S to sit i.e immediate left of V. The person who is from PAK sits third to the right of the one who is from Bangladesh, so T is from Bangladesh and S is from PAK. And thus we get the final arrangement.

T- US
Solution:
(i). Q is not an immediate neighbour of W. Q sits second to the left of P, who is from Brazil. Q is from UK. V, who is from US sits second to the left of U, who is from India. V who sits at one of the corners also sits third to the left of the one who is from UK. T sits opposite to the one who is from US. From this we get only one case.

(ii). There are 3 people sit between P and R, who is from Nepal. S is not an immediate neighbour of P and Q, so there is only one possible place for S to sit i.e immediate left of V. The person who is from PAK sits third to the right of the one who is from Bangladesh, so T is from Bangladesh and S is from PAK. And thus we get the final arrangement.

V who sits at one of the corners also sits third to the left of the one who is from UK. T sits opposite to the one who is from US. From this we get only one case.

(ii). There are 3 people sit between P and R, who is from Nepal. S is not an immediate neighbour of P and Q, so there is only one possible place for S to sit i.e immediate left of V. The person who is from PAK sits third to the right of the one who is from Bangladesh, so T is from Bangladesh and S is from PAK. And thus we get the final arrangement.
