In Ranking Sequence questions, ranks of a person both from the top and bottom are mentioned and total number of persons is asked. However, sometimes this question is put in the form of a puzzle of interchanging seats by two persons.

In a queue, Amrita is 10th from the front while Mukul is 25th from behind and Mamta is just in the middle of the two. If there be 50 persons in the queue. What position does Mamta occupy from the front ?

A. 20th
B. 19th
C. 18th
D. 17th
Answer: C . 18th

Justification: Number of persons between Amrita and Mukul = 50 - (10 + 25) = 15. Since Mamta lies in middle of these 15 persons, so Mamta`s position is 8th from Amrita i.e. 18th from the front.
