Eight friends, J, K, L, M, S, T, U and V are seated in a straight line, but not necessarily in the same order. Some are them are facing north while some face south.

- K sits second from the end of the line. U sits third to the left of K.
- T faces south. V sits fourth to the left of T. T is not an immediate neighbor of U. T does not sit at any of the extreme ends of the line.
- Both the immediate neighbors of J face north. J does not sit at any of the extreme ends of the line.
- J faces a direction opposite to that of V. (i.e. If V faces north then J faces south and vice-versa.)
- L sits second to the left of J.
- Immediate neighbors of K face opposite directions (i.e. if one neighbor faces north then the other faces south and vice-versa.)
- Persons sitting at extreme ends face opposite directions (i.e. if one person faces north then the other person faces south and vice-versa.)
- As many people sit between U and J as between U and S.
- Immediate neighbors of U face same directions (i.e. if one neighbor faces north then the other also faces north and vice-versa).

**Which of the following is true based on the given arrangement?**- V sits at one of the extreme ends of the line,
- L faces north,
- None of the given options is true
- Only three people face north
- S and U face the same directions

Answer: Option A

M(n) K(s) T(s) S(s) U(n) J(s) V(n) L(s)

n = north and s = south

Only three people face north is true option on the given arrangement.**Who amongst the following faces north?**- L
- M
- J
- K
- S

Answer: Option B

M(n) K(s) T(s) S(s) U(n) J(s) V(n) L(s)

n = north and s = south

From the options, M faces north.**Who amongst the following sits third to the left of S?**- K
- J
- V
- L
- No one as less than three people sits to the left of S.

Answer: Option C

M(n) K(s) T(s) S(s) U(n) J(s) V(n) L(s)

n = north and s = south

V sits third to the left of S.**How many people sit exactly between T and U?**- Four
- Three
- Two
- More than four
- One

Answer: Option E

M(n) K(s) T(s) S(s) U(n) J(s) V(n) L(s)

n = north and s = south

One people sit exactly between T and U.**Who among the following represent the persons sitting at extreme ends of the line?**- M, V
- M, S
- L, V
- M, L
- S, V

Answer: Option D

M(n) K(s) T(s) S(s) U(n) J(s) V(n) L(s)

n = north and s = south

M, L represent the persons sitting at extreme ends of the line.

**What is the difference between average number of students enrolled in institute A in 2009 and 2010 and that in institute B in 2011 and 2012?**- 20
- 40
- 30
- 10
- 60

Answer: Option B

A = 440/2 = 220 and B = 360/2 = 180

Difference = 220 – 180 = 40**If the number of enrolled students in institute A in 2013 is 25% less than that in 2014, how many students were enrolled in institute A in 2014?**- 450
- 480
- 440
- 500
- 490

Answer: Option C

Let students enrolled in 2014 In institute A be ‘x’ 85% of x = 330 ⇒ x = 440**In 2009, 65% of students enrolled in institute B were male. If the respective ratio between number of male students enrolled in institutes A and B in 2009 was 3: 4, what was the number of male students enrolled in institute A in the same year?**- 111
- 117
- 123
- 114
- 105

Answer: Option B

Male students of B = 65% * 240 =156

Total students male = 4/7 x = 156 ⇒ x = 273

Male students of A = 273 -156= 117

Vansh starts walking from Point E and walks 25m towards the north. He then takes a right turn and walks for 15m. He makes a left turn and stops at Point M after walking for 20m.

Point K is 30m to the west of Point M. Point K is 45m to the north of Point J. Point J is 10m to the east of Point L.

**How far and in which direction is Point E with respect to Point L?**- 30m towards West
- 25m towards East
- 20m towards East
- 20m towards West
- 25m towards West

Answer: Option B

So Point E w.r.t Point L, 15+10= 25m due East**If Neha is standing at Point D which is 20m to the north of Point L, in which direction will she have to walk in order to reach Point M?**- North-west
- East
- South-east
- North-east
- North

Answer: Option C

If Neha is standing at Point D which is 20m to the north of Point L, she will have to walk in North - East direction to reach Point M. North-east
