Options:

   A. A

   B. B

   C. D

   D. Can’t be determined

Solution:

Let us analyze the given information in parts and solve the puzzle accordingly

E sits second to the left of C. C and A are not sitting adjacent to each other.

Depicting the above information, we get two possible cases

logical-reasoning-circular-arrangement-1-pendulumedu

B does not sit adjacent to E and D.

From the above information, we get further two possible cases

logical-reasoning-circular-arrangement-2-pendulumedu

F is the neighbour of C.

Therefore, final seating arrangements can be

logical-reasoning-circular-arrangement-pendulumedu

From the above cases, we can say that either A or D can sit opposite to C

Hence, (D) is the correct answer.

Circular and linear seating arrangement questions are asked in various exams like RRB JE, RRB NTPC, RRB OFFICER SCALE-I, IBPS PO, IBPS SO, RRB Office Assistant, IBPS Clerk, RBI Assistant, IBPS RRB OFFICER SCALE 2&3, etc. Try and attempt free mock tests at PendulumEdu.
