# Reasoning: Direction Sense Questions Set 15 (New Pattern)

(Directions): Read the following information carefully and answer the questions given below it:

Nine bikes â€“ M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T and U were parked at some distance from each other in a parking area. O was 16 m ! to that of N. M was 6 m & of that of N and T was 12 m * of that of M. S was 8 m ^ of that of T while P was 24 m ! of that of S and R was 12 m & of that of S. U was situated just in the middle of N and O while Q was just in the middle of T and P.

Here, & means North, * means South, ! means East and ^ means West
If two symbols are simultaneously given then both directions will be taken.

For example,
A&!B means B is to the North-East of A
A&!B means B is to the North-East of A

1. Which of the following is/are true about N?
I. U^N&^R
II. N*^S
III. N*!P

All are true
Both I and II
Only I
Both II and III
Only III
Option A
O was 16 m ! to that of N. M was 6 m & of that of N and T was 12 m * of that of M.
O was 16m to the east of N. M was 6m to the north of N and T was 12m to the south of M.

I. N is west of U and R is north â€“ west of N.
II. S is south â€“ west of N.
III. P is south â€“ east of N.
Hence, all are true.

2. What is the direction of P with respect to R?

South
South â€“ west
North â€“ east
North â€“ west
South â€“ east
Option E
S was 8 m ^ of that of T while P was 24 m ! of that of S and R was 12 m & of that of S.
S was 8m to the west of T while P was 24m to the east of S and R was 12m to the north of S.

Hence, direction of P is south â€“ east with respect to R.

3. What is the shortest distance between bike N and bike R?

12m
10m
9m
11m
None of these
Option B
U was situated just in the middle of N and O while Q was just in the middle of T and P.

Shortest distance between bike N and bike R = âˆš(82 + 62) = âˆš64 + 36 m = 10m

4. Which of the following bikes lie in the straight line?

S and N
O and T
S and Q
Q and M
None of these
Option C
S and Q lie in the straight line.

5. What is the direction of Q with respect to U?

South
South â€“ west
North â€“ east
North
None of these
Option A
Direction of Q with respect to U is south.

6. Directions: Study the following information and answer the given questions.
Seven friends E, F, G, H, I, J and K had their offices situated along a straight row facing the north. They like different colours among Violet, Indigo, Orange, Brown, Purple, Golden and Silver but not necessarily in the same order. The distance between the neighbour offices was a successive integral multiple of 5km and distance will be increased from left to right.
Eâ€™s office was third to the left of the official who likes golden colour. Fâ€™s office was 135km to the right of the official who likes brown colour. Gâ€™s office was exactly between Kâ€™s office and the official who likes silver colour. The official who likes purple colour was to the immediate left of the official who likes orange colour. The official who likes orange colour was 115km to the left of Hâ€™s office. The official who likes golden colour was the neighbour of Hâ€™s office. The official who likes brown colour was 85km away from Iâ€™s office. The official who likes violet colour had office at one of the extreme ends. K did not like indigo colour and distance between any two offices was less than 80 km.

7. Which colour does J likes?
Violet
Golden
Indigo
Silver
Purple
Option B
The distance between any two offices was less than 80 km.
The minimum distance mentioned in the question is 85km.
So, the distance between two offices cannot be 5km as (5 + 80 = 85) which is not possible.

Fâ€™s office was 135km to the right of the official who likes brown colour. The official who likes golden colour was the neighbour of Hâ€™s office. The official who likes brown colour was 85km away from Iâ€™s office.
This is possible in only one condition when distance between F and the official who likes brown colour is successive integral of 5 as (40 â€“ 45 â€“ 50).

Hence, J likes golden colour.

8. What is the distance between G and the official who likes orange colour?
95km
170km
150km
135km
85km
Option D
The official who likes orange colour was 115km to the left of Hâ€™s office.

Hence, distance between G and the official who likes orange colour is 135km.

9. How many offices are there between E and the official who likes indigo colour?
None
One
Two
Three
Four
Option D
The official who likes golden colour was the neighbour of Hâ€™s office. Eâ€™s office was third to the left of the official who likes golden colour.

Hence, three offices are there between E and the official who likes indigo colour.

10. Who among the following sits to the immediate left of I?
E
The one who likes orange colour
K
The one who likes indigo colour
F
Option A
The official who likes purple colour was to the immediate left of the official who likes orange colour.

Hence, E sits to the immediate left of I.

11. Who among the following has distance of 190km between them?

E, The one who likes orange colour
F, H
G, The one who likes golden colour
G, The one who likes orange colour
None of these

Gâ€™s office was exactly between Kâ€™s office and the official who likes silver colour. The official who likes violet colour had office at one of the extreme ends. K did not like indigo colour and distance between any two offices was less than 80 km.

Hence, G and the one who likes golden colour have distance of 190km between them.
