Directions (1-4) :

We have:

• The one who works in TCS sits north-east of R.
• One person sits between the one who works in TCS and S, who doesnâ€™t sit on the same square as R.
• S neither works in SBI nor works in IG.

That means, in case (1) & case (2) R sits facing center, in case (3) & case (4) R sits facing away from center.

• R sits on the immediate right of the one who works in HCL.
• The one who works in HCL sits exactly opposite to P, who neither works in SBI nor works in OLA.
• The one who works in Dell sits immediate south-west of the one who works in OLA.
• The one who works in Dell sits on the immediate right of the one who works in IG, who sits facing away from center.

That means, in case (1)& case (2)S works in Dell, in case (3) & case (4) P works in IG.

Based on above given information we have:

Again, we have:

• U neither works in TCS nor works in HCL.
• T sits on the immediate north of U, who sits immediate north-west of the one who works in CTS.

That means, in case (1) P works in CTS and T works in TCS, case (2), case (3) & case (4) are not valid.

• One person sits between Q and the one who works in SBI.
• W neither works in OLA nor works in IG.
• V sits immediate south-east of W.

That means, W works in HCL and R works in SBI.

Based on above given information we have final arrangements as follows:

Case (2), case (3) & case (4) are not valid as T sits on the immediate north of U, who sits immediate north-west of the one who works in CTS.

Clearly, the one who works in PNB sits on the immediate left of T.

Hence, option E is correct choice.

Clearly, the one who works in OLA sits on the immediate right of P.

Hence, option D is correct choice.

Clearly, P and W sit adjacent to R.

Hence, option C is correct choice.

Clearly, the one who works in OLA faces the one who works in SBI.

Hence, option C is correct choice.

Directions (5-7) :

We have:

^ @ B 4 3 Â¥ K % &Q 7 1 W Â£ # U Z 8 5 F 2 9 R Î² H 6 Â© T

Step 1: Such special character that is immediately preceded by another special character and immediately followed by a constant.

^Â @Â B 4 3 Â¥ K %Â &Â Q 7 1 W Â£ # U Z 8 5 F 2 9 R Î² H 6 Â© T

Thus, two such special character are possible -> @ and &

After placing all such special characters immediate right of â€˜1â€™, we get:

^ B 4 3 Â¥ K % Q 7 1 @ & W Â£ # U Z 8 5 F 2 9 R Î² H 6 Â© T

Step 2: Such prime digit immediately preceded by an alphabet and immediately followed by a number.

^ B 4 3 Â¥ K % Q7Â 1 @ & W Â£ # U Z 8 5 FÂ 2Â 9 R Î² H 6 Â© T

Thus, two such prime number are possible -> 7 and 2.

After placing all such prime digits between â€˜&â€™ and â€˜Wâ€™, we get:

^ B 4 3 Â¥ K % Q 1 @ & 2 7 W Â£ # U Z 8 5 F 9 R Î² H 6 Â© T

Step 3: Such alphabets immediately preceded by a special symbol and immediately followed by a digit.

^Â BÂ 4 3 Â¥ K %Â QÂ 1 @ & 2 7 W Â£ # U Z 8 5 F 9 R Î²Â HÂ 6 Â© T

Thus, three such alphabets are possible -> B, Q and H.

After placing all such alphabet immediate right of â€˜@â€™, we get:

^ 4 3 Â¥ K % 1 @ Q H B & 2 7 W Â£ # U Z 8 5 F 9 R Î² 6 Â© T

Thus, after replacement we have:

^ 4 3 Â¥ K % 1 @ Q H B & 2 7 W Â£ # U Z 8 5 F 9 R Î² 6 Â© T

We have:

^ 4 3Â Â¥Â K % 1Â @Â Q H B & 2 7 W Â£ # U Z 8 5 F 9 R Î² 6Â Â©Â T

Clearly, only three such special character are possible Ã  Â¥, @ andÂ Â©.

Hence, option B is correct choice.

We have:

^ 4 3 Â¥ K % [email protected] Q H B & 2 7 W Â£ # U Z 8 5 F 9 R Î² 6 Â© T

After dropping all alphabets from final output and rearranging all digits in descending order, we have:

^ 9 8 Â¥ % 7Â @Â & 6 5 Â£ # 4 3 2 Î² 1 Â©

Thus, â€˜@â€™ is sixth to left of 4.

Hence, option A is correct choice.

We have:

^ 4 3 Â¥ K % [email protected] Q H B & 2 7 W Â£ # U Z 8 5 F 9 R Î² 6 Â© T

[email protected]-> 2ndÂ element is second to right of 1stelement and 3rdÂ element is third to right of 2ndÂ element, 1stÂ element of next combination is immediate left of 3rdÂ element of previous combination.

1H7->Â 2ndÂ element is third to right of 1stÂ element and 3rdÂ element is fourth to right of 2ndÂ element, 1stÂ element of next combination is immediate left of 3rdÂ element of previous combination.

2#F->Â 2ndÂ element is fourth to right of 1stÂ element and 3rdÂ element is fifth to right of 2ndÂ element, 1stÂ element of next combination is immediate left of 3rdÂ element of previous combination.

Thus, from above given patter desired combination Ã  56Â¥.

Hence, option E is correct choice
