Nine persons P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W and X are standing in a straight line such that all of them are facing towards north, but not necessarily in the same order. The consecutive alphabetically named person doesn’t stand adjacent to each other. Not more than two persons stand to the left of U. The number of persons to the right of U is the same as to the left of W, who stands third to the right of X. V stands fourth from one of the ends and is to the immediate right of P. The number of persons between U and P is the same as the number of persons between X and T. Only one person stands between R and S.

    Solution

    1) Not more than two persons stand to the left of U. The number of persons to the right of U is the same as to the left of W, who stands third to the right of X. Case-1 2) V stands fourth from one of the ends and is to the immediate right of P. The number of persons between U and P is the same as the number of persons between X and T. The consecutive alphabetically named person doesn’t stand adjacent to each other. Hence, case 3 gets eliminated.
