Dear Aspirants,

Reasoning Questions for SBI Clerk 2018

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 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 study plan and the exact same pattern of questions that are being asked in the exams.

Directions (1– 5): Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below.

There are eight members M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, and T who are seated around a circular table at an equal distance and some are facing to the centre while rests are facing opposite to the centre.

M sits second to the right of the one who sits immediate left of Q. T is an immediate neighbour of Q. Both the immediate neighbours of M face same direction as M faces. Atleast four persons are facing outside to the centre. R sits immediate right of T. N sits third to the left of O. Both the immediate neighbours of Q face same direction. S sits third to the right of M. P and S face same direction but opposite to that of N.

Q1. Who among the following sits third to the left of S?
(a) M
(b) N
(c) Q
(d) T
(e) None of these

Q2. How many persons are facing to the centre?
(a) One
(b) Two
(c) Three
(d) Four
(e) None of these

Q3. If ‘M’ is related to ‘O’ and ‘P’ is related to ‘T’ in a certain way, then ‘S’ is related to which of the following?
(a) Q
(b) T
(c) R
(d) N
(e) None of these

Q4. Who among the following sits opposite to M?
(a) S
(b) Q
(c) P
(d) O
(e) None of these

Q5. What is the position of N with respect to R?
(a) third to the right
(b) second to the left
(c) second to the right
(d) immediate left
(e) None of these

Solutions (1-5):

(i) from the conditions, M sits second to the right of the one who sits immediate left of Q. Both the immediate neighbours of Q face same direction. S sits third to the right of M. Both the immediate neighbours of M face same direction as M faces. T is an immediate neighbour of Q. R sits immediate right of T.

(ii) By using rest conditions, N sits third to the left of O. Position of N, O and P will be fixed in both the cases. P and S face same direction but opposite to that of N.

(iii) Atleast four persons are facing outside to the centre, from this case 2 will be eliminated and case 1 is final solution:
