## Solutions

Q1. Ans(2) Q2. Ans(4) Q3. Ans(5) Q4. Ans(1)The following pattern is followed in all arrangement except ADG. Q5. Ans(2) Sol. ( 6 -10): From the given statement, Only two persons sit between L and N and one of them sits at the corner of the table. M sits immediate right of N. O sits immediate right of L so we have four possible cases: K sits third to the right of O. P sits third to the left of K so case-3 and case-4 is eliminated. J sits third to the left of Q who faces towards the center. . J is not an immediate neighbour of O.
so case-2 is eliminated. Hence the final arrangement is: Q6. Ans(3)
Q7. Ans(4)
Q8. Ans(2)
Q9. Ans(5)
Q10. Ans(1)
