Reasoning: Puzzles and Arrangements for RRB Prelims Set 53

The following Seating Arrangements are based on the puzzles/arrangements asked in IBPS RRB PO Prelims held on 9th and 10th September 2017.

Directions (1 – 5): Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below.

Eight persons – A, B, C, D, P, Q, R and S are sitting around a circle not in same order. Three of them are facing towards the centre of circle while others are facing outside.

D is sitting third to right of A. There are 2 persons between D and Q. C and P are immediate neighbors and both are facing opposite direction. C and P both are not immediate neighbors of Q. S is sitting third to right of C. There is one person sitting between S and R. Q and D are facing opposite directions (like if Q is facing inside, then D is facing outside and vice versa). B is sitting immediate left of D. S sits second to right of R. D and S faces same direction. D and C faces opposite direction.

      Option D
    Arrangement:
    D is sitting third to right of A. There are 2 persons between D and Q. C and P are immediate neighbors and both are facing opposite direction. C and P both are not immediate neighbors of Q.

    Next – S is sitting third to right of C. There is one person sitting between S and R. So

     

    Next — Q and D are facing opposite directions (like if Q is facing inside, then D is facing outside and vice versa). B is sitting immediate left of D.
    In 1st figure – D faces outside, so Q inside. In 2nd figure – D faces inside, so Q outside
    S sits second to right of R.
    Last statement makes 5 people facing inside in figure 2, so figure 2 gets discarded.
