(c) K

(d) M

(e) None of these

**Directions (8-10): Study the following information carefully and answer the question given below:**

M, N, O, P, Q, R, J and K are sitting in a straight line but not necessarily in the same order. Some of them are facing south while some are facing north. Only two people sit to the right of M. N sits third to the left of M. Only one person sits between N and R. R sits to the immediate right of Q. Only one person sits between Q and K. Both the immediate neighbours of N face the same direction. M faces north. O sits third to the left of R. N faces the opposite direction of M. J does not sit at any of the extremes ends of the line. P faces the same direction as Q. Both J and O face the opposite direction of K.

**Q8. How many persons in the given arrangement are facing North?**

(a) More than four

(b) Four

(c) One

(d) Three

(e) Two

**Q9. Four of the following five are alike in a certain way, and so form a group. Which of the following does not belong to the group?**

(a) Q, R

(b) K, J

(c) N, M

(d) N, J

(e) P, O

**Q10. What is the position of R with respect to K?**

(a) Second to the left

(b) Third to the right

(c) Third to the left

(d) Fifth to the right

(e) Second to the right

**Solutions**

**S1. Ans. (b) **

**Sol.** exactly middle- 625 after arranging in the ascending order

Product of the first and the last digit of 625= 6×5= 30

**S2. Ans. (d) **

**Sol. **434 is the second lowest number after arranging the first and last digit of each of the numbers

Sum of all digits= 4 + 3 + 4 = 11

**S3. Ans. (b) **

**Sol.** 288 is the lowest one

Required difference = 8 – 2 = 6

**S4. Ans. (b) **

**Sol.** first digit of the highest number = 9, Third digit of the lowest number = 9: So, 9/9 = 1

**S5. Ans. (c) **

**Sol.** 922 is the second highest number after arranging the digits in descending order.
