Q faces the person who is immediate right of C. A and B do not belong to the same triangle. A belongs to outer triangle.

Q1. What is the position of Q with respect to R?
(a) Immediate left
(b) Immediate right

(d) Third to the right
(e) None of these.

Q2. Who among the following sits in front of C?
(a) P

(c) R
(d) A
(e) None of these.

Q3. Who among the following sits second to the left of B?
