Read the given information carefully and answer the questions given beside:   

Certain number of persons is sitting around the circular table. All of them are facing towards the center.  Distance between any two adjacent persons is same. 

 (i) Bhaskar is facing Richa, who is sitting second to the right of Uma.

 (iii) None among Tarun, Diksha and Manish is an immediate neighbour of Richa.

 (iv) The person, who is sitting four places away from Uma, is not immediate neighbour of Diksha.

 (v) Naresh, who is sitting seven places away from Uma, is not immediate neighbour of Bhaskar.

 (vi) At most 11 people sit around the circular table.

Solution:                                                                                                                                                            

From (vi), At most 11 people sit around the circular table means that not more than 11 people are sitting. We will have the possibility of either 8, 9, 10 or 11 people are sitting around the circular table.

From (i), As Bhaskar is facing Richa, for this we have to have an even number of people. So, 9 or 11 people can’t be seated.

Now we will have two possibilities:

Case 1- If 8 people are seated.

From (i), If Uma sits at place no. 1, then Richa will sit at place no. 3. Bhaskar will sit at place no. 7.

From (v), Naresh will sit at place no. 2 as he is sitting seven places away from Uma.

From (ii), If Deepak sits at place no. 4, then Manish will sit at place no. 8 but it will not be possible as Tarun is facing Manish and vice versa.

From (ii), If Deepak sits at place no. 6, then Manish will sit at place no.10 and Tarun will sit at place no.5.
