Types of Seating Arrangement

Linear Arrangement- This is a type of seating arrangement, in which persons are seating next to each other.

They can either face north, South or some of them can face north while other faces south.

( i) Directions if the people are facing north

(ii) Directions if the people are facing South
(iii) Directions if the people are seating parallel to each other facing South and North

The linear arrangement questions can be asked in parallel linear arrangement as well in which persons sit in two parallel rows and face each other. In prelims we can see one set of seating arrangement from this type in clerk and PO both the exams. We can better understand it with the help of an example:

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.

In the image given below, persons are facing away from the Centre

In the image given below, persons are facing inside the Centre

Rectangular/ Square Arrangement- In this type of sitting arrangement, People are arranged around a rectangular table or around square table.

There are certain rules associated with this one as well which are similar to the circular arrangement.

(i) When people face toward the Centre
(ii) When people face away from the Centre

(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.

Other Types Of Seating Arrangement– Except the one which are given above and mostly asked in the exams, there are some other arrangements also which have been asked in previous exams like: Triangular arrangement, Hexagonal arrangement, Pentagon arrangement. These figures also follow the same rules as of circular. Seating arrangement can be asked in any way mixed with puzzles or any other topic of reasoning. It’s important that students practice all types of questions to ace this topic.
