    Study the information given below and answer the questions based on it. Eight persons A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H are sitting in a circular arrangement and facing the center and after some time they are sitting in a straight line and facing north direction, not necessarily in the same order. B is 3rd to the right of A in circle and 2nd to the left of A in a straight line. H sits opposite to B in a circle. H is 2nd to the right of D in a straight line. C is 3rd to the left of H in a circle. D is the neighbor of A in a straight line. The one who is 2nd to the right of A in a straight line is also 2nd to the left of A in a circle. E is 3rd to the left of F in the circle. At least 3 persons are sitting between E and F in the straight line but none of them at any ends. One person sits between B and C in the straight line. F is not a neighbor of H in the circle. G and E are not neighbors in both arrangements. The one who is opposite to D in the circle is not a neighbor of D in a straight line. Who among the following is 3rd to the right of G in circular?

    • A.

      D

    • B.

      E

    • C.

      C

    • D.

      A

    Correct Answer
    A. D
    Explanation
    D is 3rd to the right of G.
    Hence, option A.
    B is 2nd to the left of A in line. D is neighbor of A in straight line. H is 2nd to the right of D in straight line.

    At least 3 persons are sitting between E and F in straight line and none of the at any ends.


    One person sits between B and C in straight line. So Case 1C and Case 1D is rejected. G and E are not neighbors in both arrangements. So Case 2B is rejected.


    B is 3rd to the right of A in circular. C is 3rd to the left of H in circular. The one who is 2nd to the right of A in straight line also 2nd to the right of 2nd to the left of A in circular. So either F or E in circular is 2nd to the left of A in circular. F is not neighbor of H in circular. So E is 2nd to the left of A in circular then case 2A is rejected. E is 3rd to the left of F in circular. G and E are not neighbors in both arrangements then G is immediate right of F and D is immediate left of E in circular. The one who is opposite to D in circular is not neighbor of D in straight line so case 1B is correct.
