Dear Aspirants,

### Reasoning Questions for SBI PO Prelims 2019

Reasoning Ability is an onerous section. With the increasing complexity of questions, it becomes hard for one to give it the cold shoulder. The only way to make the grade in this particular section in the forthcoming banking exams. 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.

Directions (1-5): Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions.
A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H are seated in a straight line but not necessarily in the same order. Some of them are facing south while some are facing north. E sits 2nd to the left of H. B and G faces same direction. C sits fourth to left of F. A sits at one of the extreme ends of the line and faces south. Both the immediate neighbours of C face north. Neither C nor F is immediate neighbor of A. B sits second to the left of C. Neither C nor F sits at the extreme end of the line. Only two persons sit to the left of D who faces south. People sitting at the extreme ends face the opposite directions (i.e., if one person faces North then the other faces South and vice-versa).

Q1. How many persons sit between A and H?
Three
Four
Six
Five
None of these
Solution:
A sits at one of the extreme ends of the line and faces south. People sitting at the extreme ends face the opposite directions. C sits fourth to left of F. Both the immediate neighbor of C face north. Neither C nor F is immediate neighbor of A. Neither C nor F sits at the extreme end of the line. B sits second to the left of C. from this we get four possible cases:
Only two persons sit to the left of D who faces south. From this case 2,3 and 4 gets eliminated. E sits 2nd to the left of H. B and G faces same direction. And We get the final solution:
