DirectionsÂ (1 â€“ 5):

DirectionsÂ (6 â€“ 10):

1) V who faces away from the centre is sitting third to the left of Q.

2) V is not sitting on any of the longer sides.

(Here we can start any of the shorter side either it is in the left side of rectangle or in the right side of rectangle. So, by placing V on the shorter side of rectangle, we have four possible cases)

3) There are two persons between Q and the one with the highest marks. V does not have the highest marks.

4) U is to the immediate left of V.

5) S and W are sitting adjacent to each other but not on the same side and W faces away from the centre.

6) Neither S nor W is adjacent to V or Q.

7) S is sitting opposite to U, who has got 31 marks.

(Here case 2 and case 4 will be wrong because it is not possible to place S and W near Q.)

8) R is adjacent to both U and P.

9) R and V are facing in the same direction.

10) P, who has second lowest marks, sits opposite to X, whose score is one mark greater than that of Y.

(Hence, the marks of X and Y are 13 and 12 respectively, since this is the only possible case)

11) R and X are facing in the same direction.

12) The person who scored 12 marks sits opposite to R.

(Hence, Y sits opposite to R)

13) P and R are not facing in the same direction.

14) T and U are facing in the same direction.

15) S has 10 marks more than T.

(Hence, the marks of S and T are 30 and 20 respectively, since this is the only possible case and also S and T are immediate neighbours)

16) The person to the immediate right of X scored more marks than him.

17) Q and T are facing in the same direction and T has 5 marks less than Q.

18) The person having the lowest marks sits opposite to the person having 12 marks.

19) P is facing towards the centre.

(Since all the conditions are satisfied in both the cases and the resultant is same in both the cases, hence we can consider either of them)
