Not more than two people facing same direction are sitting together. There are three married couples.

Their ages are considered as on the same month and day of 2017 as their date of births. The distance (in meters) between two people is a successive multiple of 12. And the distance between two people increased from left to right.

E is the daughter of C. A is the sister of F. The distance between immediate neighbours of any two people should not be greater than 144m and less than 48m.

Answers:

(Directions 1–5):

We have:

  • S sits third to left of T, who sits third to left of PO. Neither PO nor S sits at end of the row. W sits third to left of V, who is a Teacher and Teacher sits immediate neighbor of T and the one who is a writer sits immediate left of W, that means we have three possible case for V. In case (1) S sits second from left end and V sits immediate right of T, in case (2a) S sits third from left end and V sits immediate left of T, in case (2b) S sits third from left end and V sits immediate right of T.
  • U sits immediate neighbor of one who is PO and sits third to right of Teacher. Distance between S and W is 5 meter.

Based on above given information, we get following result:

Again, we have:

  • The one who is a HR sits third to left of Q, who does not sit at extreme ends of the line. Q is not a PO. Only three persons sits between HR and Poet, who sits immediate neighbor of R, that means case (1) is not valid, in case (2a) HR sits immediate left of V and U is Poet, similarly case (2b) HR sits immediate left of T and Poet sits at left end of the row.
  • Distance between V and T is the highest, since no person sits between V and T in both case (2a) and (2b) thus, possible highest value is 10m.

Based on above given information, we get following result:

Again, we have:

  • P sits second to left of Doctor, who neither sits immediate neighbor of HR nor immediate neighbor of U, that means in case (2a) P is HR and T must be a Doctor, in case (2b) no such place available for P, thus case (2b) is not valid.
  • Distance between Poet and Doctor is 13m and distance between Q and R is 16m, since only one person sits between T, who is Doctor and U, who is poet thus, only possible combination of distance is (6 + 7) or (7 + 6), similarly distance between Q and R is 16m and only one person sits between Q and R, thus only possible combination available is (9 + 7) or (7 +9). As QU is common in both cases thus, only possible distance between Q and U is 7m. Thus, distance between TQ is 6m and that of UR is 9m.
  • Distance between HR and Poet is 25m, as distance between V and U, who is poet is 23m thus, distance between P, who is HR and V is (25 – 23) = 2m.

Based on above given information, we have following result:

Again, we have:

  • Number of person sits between Z and P is same as that of Clerk and Y. Distance between Z and MR is 9m, that means Z must sits at left end of the row, possible distance Z and W is 4m, thus Q must be clerk and Y sits at extreme right end.
  • Distance between Clerk and Lawyer is 26m, since only two possible distance is available 3m and 8m. As only two possible position available for Lawyer, if Lawyer sits at extreme right end, then distance between Clerk and lawyer is either (7 + 9 + 3) = 19m or (7 + 9 + 8) = 24m thus, none of available distance is true, if W is Lawyer then distance between Clerk and lawyer is either (5 + 2 + 10 + 6 + 3) = 26m thus, distance between S and P is 3m.
  • Thus, Y must be Engineer and distance between R and Y be 8m.

Based on above given information, final arrangement is as follow:

1) Answer: b)                            

2) Answer: c)

3) Answer: e)

4) Answer: a)

5) Answer: c)

(Directions 6–10):

The distance between immediate neighbours of any two people should not be greater than 144m and less than 48m. A is 312m away from F who is third eldest person in a family. Four possible cases.

H faces north and sits third to the right of her son in law. Only one person sits to the left of H’s son in law.  Number of persons sits left of H is two less than that of number of person sits right of B. A faces south and sits second to the right of B. Try the arrangement for these statements separately and then compare this arrangement with above four possible cases. All the cases are eliminated except Case 2.

B who is not married person sits 288m away from eldest person. E born in 2005 and sits at one of the extreme ends. E’s age is 16 and sits at right extreme end.

H’s daughter in law is an immediate neighbour of F and B. G and C are immediate neighbours. So H’s daughter in law is D.

A’s father who is not C sits second to the right of E. So G is father of A and E faces south. By the statement persons at the extreme ends faces same directions F also faces south direction. Not more than two people facing same direction are sitting together. By this we know all the persons directions.

A is sister of F. E is daughter of C. D is two year elder than her sister-in-law. A is not born in 1985.D’s age is 32and A’s age is 30.

Immediate neighbour of D belongs to same gender. Therefore B is male. And finally we knowgenerations of H, C and B. As H should be elder and C should be elder than B but younger than H and B is youngest.

G – 1953 – 64 Years

H – 1957 – 60 Years

F – 1982 – 35 Years

C – 1983 – 34 Years

D – 1985 – 32 Years

A – 1987 – 30 Years

E – 2005 -12 Years

B – 2001 – 16 Years

The family tree and final arrangement is
