Nine persons A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I are watching a movie in a theatre sitting in a row facing North. B is at one end of the row. H is seated adjacent to both F and G. C is to the immediate right of D and at third place to the right of E. A is immediate left of F. F is at the third place to the left of B.

1. R

2. A

3. F

4. H

B __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ or __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ B

Next in the last line it is given that F is at the third place to the left of B, so the first arrangement will be rejected as there is no place to the left of B. Now fix the position of F in the second arrangement, we get

__ __ __ __ __ F__ __ B Again there is information about the position of A with respect to F. A is right next to the left of F. So if we place A at his position, the arrangement will be __ __ __ __ A F__ __ B.

Just keep on looking for the information which will relate the remaining persons with those who are already arranged. It is given that H is seated adjacent to both F and G. So H is in between F and G. So we have __ __ __ __ A F H G B.

Now C is at third place to the right of E. So there is only one possibility that E sits at the other extreme end. We have the arrangement E __ __ C A F H G B. Now C is to the immediate right of D. So the final arrangement is E I D C A F H G B.

Hence, A is sitting at the centre of the row. Therefore, the answer is option 2.

1. A

2. E

3. G

4. C

1. E is two seats away from A.

2. D is at one extreme end.

3. I and G are neighbours.

4. There is one person between F and C

1. Second to the right

2. Second to the left

3. Third to the right

4. Fourth to the left

A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H are eight friends sitting round a circle facing towards the centre.

- H is not a neighbour of E and D and he is sitting immediate left of A.
- G is the neighbour of E. F is to the immediate right of B.
- C is sitting between E and F.

1. E is sitting between F and B

2. F is the neighbour of G

3. G is sitting between H and E

4. H is sitting between A and D

Now F is to the immediate right of B and C is sitting between E and F. It means that B, F, C and E are sitting together. Now the position of B is not defined. So we have following arrangements.

Note that B cannot be third to the right of A as in that case E will become the neighbour of H which the first condition say, cannot happen. Now it is further given that G is the neighbour of E. So we can arrange, in both the above arrangements, G and D as

Now in the first arrangement, D is the neighbor of H. So this is not a valid arrangement. So the final arrangement is:

Hence, G is sitting between H and E is true. So, the option 3 is the answer.

1. On the immediate left of B

2. Second to the right of F

3. Between B and F

4. On the immediate left of A

D is on the immediate left of B. So answer is option 1.

1. On the immediate left of B

2. Second to the right of F

3. Between B and F

4. On the immediate left of A

D is on the immediate left of B. So answer is option 1.

1. Second to the left of D

2. Third of the right of F

3. On the immediate right of H

4. Between E and C

G is third of the right of F. So answer is option 2.

1. H and D

2. H and E

3. B and C

4. E and C

H and D are the neighbors of A. Hence the answer is option 1.
