How many persons are sitting around the circular table?
» Explain it
B
Following the final solution we can say that seven persons are sitting around the circular table.

Hence, the correct answer is option B.
 
Final Solution:
 

 
Common Explanation:
 
Reference:
 
Some persons are sitting around a circular table facing towards the centre and at an equal distance from each other. Each of these persons has a different income greater than 11 Lakhs but less than 20 Lakhs.
 
Inference:
 
Here, we can say that there were at most 8 seats in the arrangement and we keep the rest of the information in mind while solving the puzzle.
 
Reference:
 
Anuj sits opposite to Faiz but neither of them are sitting adjacent to Jaya.
 
Inference:
 
Using the above information we can say that there were even numbers of seats around the circular table as it is given that Anuj is sitting opposite to Faiz and we know that all these persons are equidistant from each other which cannot be possible if the number of seats is odd.
 
Here, we will make a mental note that neither Jaya nor Reet are sitting adjacent to Jaya.
 
Reference:
 
There are two seats between Jaya and Reet.
 
Inference:
 
At this point we can say that were exactly 8 seats in the arrangement because of the number of seats is less than 8 the above hints will not follow.

Anuj’s income is in multiple of 5 but it is not the highest.

Reet’s income is in perfect square number.

Jaya’s income is in even number.

 
Inference:
 
After using the above hints, we have:
 
Anuj’ income = 15 Lakhs
 
Reet’s income = 16 Lakhs
