Solutions (1-5):

(i). From the conditions, H will have exam on 1st of any given month which has 31 days it ,means H has his exam on either 1 march or 1 August. Only one student will have exam after F. Two students will have exam between F and B. Only one student has exam between B and C. From all this condition, we will get four possible cases:

(ii). From the statement, A has exam immediately after G, case 2 gets eliminated. The position of G and A get fixed in case 1 and case 3 and we get one more case 4B.

(iii) From the rest statements, D does not have his exam on the last day and doesn’t have exam in the month which has 30days, so case 1 and case 4A gets eliminated. G does not have his exam after D. so Case 4B also gets eliminated and we will get the final solution.

Direction (6-7): Read the information carefully and answer the questions:

Eight persons- A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H are sitting around a circle but not necessary in  the   same order. Some of them are facing toward the centre and some are facing outside the centre of the circle. Two persons sit between C and H and two persons sit between A and C. F sits second right to D. F faces  outside the centre of the circle. Immediate neighbors of both A and B face opposite direction. C faces D.
E is not an immediate neighbour of B, who faces inside. B sits opposite to H, who faces inside the centre. B is not an immediate neighbour of F. Not more than two people who sit together (adjacent) face in the same direction.

(d) D
(e) None of these

Q7. Who is sitting third to the left of C?
(a) A
(b) B
(c) C
(d) D
(e) None of these

Solutions (6-7):

(i). Two persons sit between C and H and two persons sit between A and C. F sits second right to D. C faces D means C sits opposite to D and both face inside the centre. Immediate neighbors of A and B face opposite direction. F faces outside the centre of the circle. From this we will get two possible condition.

(ii). From the condition, B sits opposite to H, who faces inside the centre and is not a neighbour of F from this statement case 1eliminates. E is not an immediate neighbour of B, who faces inside. And since not more than two people who sit together face in the same direction, so A and E face outside the centre. We will the get final solution.
