A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H are sit¬ting in a straight line equidistant from each other (but not necessarily in the same order). Some of them are facing south while some are facing north.

A faces north. Only two people sit to the right of A. B sits third to the left of A. Only one person sits between B and F. F sits to the immediate right of E. Only one person sits between E and H. Both the immediate neighbors of B face the same direction. C sits third to the left of F. B faces the opposite direction as A. G does not sit at any of the extremes ends of the line. D faces the same direction as E. Both G and C face the opposite direction of H.

Q1. How many persons in the given arrangement are facing North?
(a) More than four
(b) Four
(c) One
(d) Three
(e) Two

Q2. 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?

(e) E

Q3. What is the position of F with respect to H?

(b) Third to the right
(c) Third to the left
(d) Fifth to the right
(e) Second to the right

Q4. Who amongst the following sits exactly between H and E?

(d) A
(e) C

Q5. Who is sitting 2nd to the right of B?
(a) H
(b) D
(c) F
(d) E
(e) None of these.

Solutions (1-5):

(i) By using the given condition, A faces north. Only two people sit to the right of A.B sits third to the left of A. Only one person sits be­tween B and F, hence there will be two possible case:

(ii) F sits to the immediate right of E, so E faces south in case1 and north in case2. Only one person sits be­tween E and H. Both the immediate neighbors of B face the same direc­tion, hence in case1 H faces south and in case2 H faces north direction.

(iii) Using rest conditions, C sits third to the left of F, from this condition case1 will be eliminated. In case 2 F faces south and C sits at extreme end. B faces the opposite direction as A. G does not sit at any of the extremes ends of the line, hence position of G and D will be fixed. D faces the same direction as E. Both G and C face the opposite di­rection of H. We will get final answer.
