Nine shops –S1, S2, S3, S4, S5, S6, S7, S8 and S9 were located at some distance from each other in a shopping complex. S3 was 16 m % to that of S2. S1 was 6 m # of that of S2 and S8 was 12 m @ of that of S1. S7 was 8 m $ of that of S8 while S4 was 24 m % of that of S7 and S6 was 12 m # of that of S7. S9 was situated just in the middle of S2 and S3 while S5 was just in the middle of S8 and S4.
 
Here, # means North, @ means South, % means East and $ means West
 
Note: If two symbols are given simultaneously then we will consider both the directions.

For example,
X#%Y means Y is to the North-East of X
Y#%X means X is to the North-East of Y  (Set 3 Q. 1)
 
Which of the following is/are true about S2?

A. S9$S2#$S6        B. S2@$S7         C. S2@%S4
» Explain it
A
After decoding the options, we get:

S9$S2#$S6 → S2 is to the west of S9 and S6 is to the northwest of S2.

S2@$S7 → S7 is to the southwest of S2

S2@%S4 → S4 is to the southeast of S2

Here, we can see that all of the options follow with the figure we made.

Hence, the correct answer is option A.
 

Common Explanation:

Reference:

Here, # means North, @ means South, % means East and $ means West
 
Note: If two symbols are given simultaneously then we will consider both the directions.

For example,
X#%Y means Y is to the North-East of X
Y#%X means X is to the North-East of Y


Inference:

We will keep this information in mind while solving the puzzle.

Reference:

Nine shops –S1, S2, S3, S4, S5, S6, S7, S8 and S9 were located at some distance from each other in a shopping complex. S3 was 16 m % to that of S2. S1 was 6 m # of that of S2 and S8 was 12 m @ of that of S1. S7 was 8 m $ of that of S8 while S4 was 24 m % of that of S7 and S6 was 12 m # of that of S7. S9 was situated just in the middle of S2 and S3 while S5 was just in the middle of S8 and S4.

Inference:

After decoding the symbols above statement can be rewritten as:

Nine shops –1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 were located at some distance from each other in a shopping complex. S3 was 16 m east to that of S2. S1 was 6 m north of that of S2 and S8 was 12 m south of that of S1. S7 was 8 m west of that of S8 while S4 was 24 m east of that of S7 and S6 was 16 m north of that of S7. S9 was situated just in the middle of S2 and S3 while S5 was just in the middle of S8 and S4.

At this point we can easily create a rough map of the location of these shops:
