In this type of questions, some clues regarding seating or placing sequence (linear or circular) of some persons or items is given. The candidate is required to form the proper sequence using these clues and answer the questions accordingly.
Eight friends A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H are sitting in a circle facing the centre. B is sitting between G and D. H is third to the left of B and second to the right of A. C is sitting between A and G and B and E are not sitting opposite to each other.
Who is third to the left of D ?
B is between G and D i.e. the order is G B D. H is third to the left of B and second to the right of A.
So, forming a circle we have :
C is between A and G. But E is not opposite B.
So, Cis between A and H.
Thus, the final arrangement becomes :
F is third to the left of D.
