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.

1. Third to the left

2. Second to the right

3. Second to the left

4. Third to the right

E is second to the left of H. Hence option 3.
