The only way to make the grade in this particular section in the forthcoming banking exams like IBPS PO Mains is to practice continuously with all your heart and soul. And, to let you practice with the best of the latest pattern questions, here is the Adda247 Reasoning Quiz based on the exact same pattern of questions that are being asked in the exams.

**Direction (1-5): Read the following information carefully and answer the questions given below:**

Eight persons P, Q, R, S, T, U, V and X. All of them are sitting around a circular table. Some of them are facing inside while some are facing outside of the center. Each of the person is going to give different exam viz. IBPS PO, IBPS Clerk, IBPS SO, Rrb PO, Rrb Clerk, UIIC Assistant, RBI Assistant, OICL AO. Also each of them has different examination date in the month of November viz. 5, 9, 12, 15, 17, 21, 25 and 28, but not necessarily in the same order.

T sits third to the left of the one who gives exam of IBPS Clerk. Both S and V sit next to each other and face same direction. R sits second to the right of X and has exam of UIIC Assistant. R has exam after more than one person. U has exam on the date which is an odd one and multiple of 5. The one who has exam of OICL AO has exam on date which is prime number but not 5. Only one person sits between the who has exam of RBI Assistant and the one who has exam of Rrb Clerk and both of them faces opposite direction to each other. The one who has exam of IBPS PO has exam date which is a perfect square. T has exam on even date. P’s immediate neighbour has exam date which is a square of the exam date of P. Q is facing outside of the center and gives exam after maximum number of persons. X faces T, who has exam of Rrb Clerk. V sits to the immediate right of the one who gives exam of RRB PO. Only Q sits between the one who gives exam of UIIC Assistant and IBPS PO. P is an immediate neighbour of T and sits to right of T. Neither S nor V gives the exam of IBPS clerk. The immediate left of the one, whose exam date is multiple of six, gives exam of IBPS SO. Both U and R faces same direction but opposite to S.

**Q1. Who gives exam of OICL AO?**

T

S

V

R

Q

Solution:

X faces T who has exam of Rrb Clerk. T sits third to the left of the one who gives exam of IBPS Clerk. Only one person sits between the who has exam of RBI Assistant and the one who has exam of Rrb Clerk So, there can be two cases:

R sits second to the right of X and has exam of UIIC Assistant. Only Q sits between the one who gives exam of UIIC Assistant and IBPS PO. P is an immediate neighbour of T and sits to right of T. Both S and V sit next to each other and face same direction. So, it is clear that U will sit in between T and R.

T has exam on even date. P’s immediate neighbour has exam date which is a square of the exam date of P. So, only possibility is P’s exam will be on 5 and his immediate neighbour has exam on 25. So, either S or V gives exam on 25. Q is facing outside of the center and gives exam after maximum number of persons. So, Q gives exam on 28. The one who has exam of IBPS PO has exam date which is a perfect square. So, X gives exam on 9. T has exam on even date. So, T gives exam on 12.

Neither S nor V gives the exam of IBPS clerk. So, case-1 will be eliminated. Now from case-2: The one who has exam of OICL AO has exam on date which is prime number but not 5. So, either S or V gives exam of OICL on 17. U has exam on the date which is an odd one and multiple of 5. The who has exam of RBI Assistant and the one who has exam of Rrb Clerk and both of them faces opposite direction to each other. V sits to the immediate right of the one who gives exam of RRB PO. The immediate left of the one, whose exam date is multiple of six, gives exam of IBPS SO. So, U gives exam of IBPS SO. R has exam after more than one person. Only one person sits between the who has exam of RBI Assistant and the one who has exam of Rrb Clerk and both of them faces opposite direction to each other. Both S and V sit next to each other and face same direction. Both U and R faces same direction but opposite to S. So, final solution is----

**Q2. The one who gives exam of IBPS SO gives exam on which date?**

12

28

21

15

9

Solution:

X faces T who has exam of Rrb Clerk. T sits third to the left of the one who gives exam of IBPS Clerk. Only one person sits between the who has exam of RBI Assistant and the one who has exam of Rrb Clerk So, there can be two cases:

Both S and V sit next to each other and face same direction. So, it is clear that U will sit in between T and R.

T has exam on even date. P’s immediate neighbour has exam date which is a square of the exam date of P. So, only possibility is P’s exam will be on 5 and his immediate neighbour has exam on 25. So, either S or V gives exam on 25. Q is facing outside of the center and gives exam after maximum number of persons. So, Q gives exam on 28. The one who has exam of IBPS PO has exam date which is a perfect square. So, X gives exam on 9. T has exam on even date. So, T gives exam on 12.
