Dear Aspirants,

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 like Indian Bank 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): Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions:
Robert, John, Coco, Sanvi, Veena, Sweta, Toshi, and Cinu are seated in a row (but not necessarily in the same direction).
