Important for :
1
Who among the following persons facing south in Row-1?
» Explain it
A
The following common explanation, we get "S and O”.

Hence, option A is correct.

Final arrangement:

 Direction North North North South North South Person (Row-1) U Z P S V O Person (Row-2) W Q T Y X R Direction South North South North / South North North

Common Explanation

References

O sits second from the left of S who is not facing north.

P sits immediate right of S. P sits straight to T facing opposite direction to each other.

V sits second to the right of P.

O and R face each other. Y sits second to the left of R.

W and U seated are at corners and facing opposite direction to each other.

Inferences

From above statements, we get

Note: In each row persons may face north/south.

We don’t know the position of S from extreme ends. So we solve as per the statements without considering number of persons in row as follows,

i. S faces south and his/her immediate right is P.

ii. O sits second from the left of S. V sits second to the right of P.

iii. Note: if P faces south, then V and O are sit at extreme ends of row-1. Therefore no place for U to sit at corner. Thus P must face north direction. Then V sits immediate left of S.

iv. P must face north direction sits opposite to T who faces south direction.
[opposite direction to each other means, if one faces north then the other faces south or vice versa]

v. O and R face each other. Y sits second to the left of R. [If R faces south, T and Y sit at extreme ends of row-2. Therefore no place for W to sit at corner. Thus R faces north direction and O faces south direction. Both are facing each other. Therefore Row-2 faces Row-1 as shown below.

vi. Y sits second to the left of R. Thus we get the table as follows,

 Direction North South South Person(Row-1) P S V O Person (Row-2) T Y R Direction South North

References

Neither Q nor X is sit at the extreme ends of the row. Q is not a neighbor of R.

Two persons sit between Q and X.

Z and U are facing same direction as Q and X.

Not more than five persons facing south.

Inferences

Note: Clearly from above diagram (we placed only 4 seating in each row), Q is not sit at any ends and not neighbor to R. If Q sits second to the right of R, then T and Q sit at extreme ends. Then there is no place for W to sit at corner in row 2 which is not possible. Thus Q must sit immediate right of T and X sits immediate left of R. Only person in row 2 is W who sits extreme corner and faces the person U.

i. V is facing same direction as R. R faces north, then V also faces north direction.

ii. Only remaining person in row-1 is Z who sits immediate left of P.

iii. Note: [Given: Z, U, Q and X are facing same direction but none of them direction is given directly]

iv. Hint: Not more than five persons facing south. [If Z, U, Q and X are facing south direction, total persons facing south direction becomes 7 including T, S and O which is not possible.

v. Therefore Z, U, Q and X are facing north direction

vi. W and U are seated at corners and facing opposite direction to each other. [U faces north, and then W faces South direction.

vii. Y direction is unknown. He/she may face North/South direction.

Thus we get the completed seating as shown below,

 Direction North North North South North South Person (Row-1) U Z P S V O Person (Row-2) W Q T Y X R Direction South North South North/South North North
