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.

Some boys are sitting in a row. P is sitting fourteenth from the left and Q is seventh from the right. If there are four boys between P and Q, how many boys are there in the row ?

A. 25
B. 23
C. 21
D. 19
E. None of these
Answer: A . 25

Justification: Number of boys in the row = number of boys uptil P + number of boys between P and Q + number of boys including Q and those behind Q = 14 + 4 + 7 = 25.
