Order and Ranking

Directions (9-10): Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below.

Six boxes A, B, C, D, E and F contains different number of boxes. The boxes are arranged according to the number of chocolates from highest to lowest.

Directions (1-5): R sits third to the left of Q, who sits at one of the corners of the table. Only one person sits between N and R. O sits at the immediate right of R. Two persons sit between M and the vacant seat, which is at one of the sides of the square. L, who sits at the immediate left of P is an immediate neighbor of the vacant seat. Since L cannot be placed, Case 1a, Case 1b gets cancelled.

Case 2b gets cancelled because L, who sits at the immediate left of P.

Hence Case 2a will be the final arrangement.

Directions (6-8):

I) E ≤ C (C = D ≥ E) -> True

II) A < C (A ≤ B > C) -> False

So, only conclusion I follow.

I) J < L (J = K ≤ L)

II) L = J (J = K ≤ L)

So, either conclusion I or II follows.

I) P ≥ R (P ≥ Q = R) -> True

II) M < P (M = N < O ≤ P) -> True

So, both conclusion I and II follow.
