## What is Seating Arrangement?

## Types of Seating Arrangement

Circular Arrangement– In this type of seating arrangement, persons sit next to each other around a circular table. This is another type of seating arrangement.

There are certain rules associated with this type for eg:

If A sits right of B, then A will be placed in anticlockwise direction to B. Similarly, If A sits left of B, then A will be placed in clockwise direction of B.

A sits Diagonally opposite to B means that A & B faces each other and sits exactly opposite to each other.

People either face the Centre or away from the Centre or some people face the Centre while other faces away.

(iii) If there is a condition given in the question in which, People sitting at middle of the side, face the centre and people sitting at edge/corner face outside the centre then given below is the visual representation of the arrangement.
