M, N, O, P, Q, R, S and T are eight friends sitting around a square table in such a way that four of them sit at four corners of the square while four sit in the middle of each of the four sides. Those who sit at the four corners face away from the centre while those who sit in the middle of the sides face the centre of the square table.
S, sits third to the right of O, who faces the centre. P sits third to the left of Q, who does not sit in the middle of the sides. Only one person sits between P and N. N is not an immediate neighbour of Q. M faces the centre. T is not an immediate neighbour of N.

Q6. Who sits exactly between P and N, when counted in clockwise direction from N?

Directions (11-15) : Study the following letter/number /symbol sequence and answer the questions following it.
6 7 # U V E ? 5 * L H 8 S A 9 T 4 $ F 3 % ∆ G D 8 M 2 X Z W

Q11. How many symbols are there in the series which are immediately preceded by a number and immediately followed by a letter?
One
Two
Three
Four
None of these
Solution:
We have to look for number – symbol-letter sequence in the given series.

Q12. If all the symbols are dropped from the series, which letter/number will be eleventh to the left of fifteenth letter/number from you left ?
2
V
6
Z
None of these
Solution:
11th element to the left of 15th element from the left ⇒ 4th element from the left after dropping all the Six symbols i.e. V.

Q13. If the position of the first and the sixteenth elements, the second and the seventeenth elements, and so on up to the eleventh and the twenty-sixth elements, are interchanged, which letter/number/ symbol will be seventh to the right of nineteenth letter/number/symbol from the right?
#
E
V
U
None of these
Solution:
7th to the right of 19th element from the right ⇒ 12th element from the right ⇒ (31-12) = 19th element from the left.
Now, 19th element from the left will be replaced by the fourth element (from the left) in the original series. Hence the required element is ‘U’

Q14. If the positions of the letters in the sequence are reoccupied by the letters themselves though after getting rearranged alphabetically from the left, which of the following will indicate the position of L in the new arrangement?
L is fourteenth from left
L is exactly between * and M
L is seventeenth from right
Both (a) and (c)

Solution:
After rearranging the letters according to the questions, It is obvious that L is fourteenth element from the left and seventeenth from the right.

Q15. Which element will be seventh to the right of nineteenth element from the right?
