Puzzle asked in SBI PO Mains 2019 - Detailed Explanation

Direction: Study the following data carefully and answer the questions accordingly.

There are 8 people standing in 2 concentric square grounds. Four of them are standing in the outer ground facing inwards and four of them are standing in the inner ground facing outwards. All are standing in the middle of the side of the square. There are 4 couples. Q is to the immediate right of T. Q faces V. There is only one person between V and R’s husband. W faces the immediate neighbour of R. W is not the spouse of T. P neither faces W nor R. S is the immediate neighbour of P. P faces the center.

Solution: Try to differenciate direct and indirect information given in the sitting arrangement.

 

Direct information: (1) Q faces V.  Q is to the immediate right of T. There is only one person between V and R’s husband. 

                              (2) S is the immediate neighbour of P. P faces the center.

                          

Indirect information: (1) W faces the immediate neighbour of R. P neither faces W nor R. W is not the spouse of T

 

we will start with two saperate sitting arrangements:-

Q faces V.  Q is to the immediate right of T. There is only one person between V and R’s husband. 

Since  W faces the immediate neighbour of R and W is not the spouse of T, so

S is the immediate neighbour of P. P faces the center., so figure 2 does not satisfy that p can be face center.
