Directions: Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below:
 
Eight friends Parul, Teja, Arav, Maya, Badri, Naren, Jesi, and Kasi are sitting around a circular table facing to the centre. They are of different age viz.23, 27, 25, 32, 24, 28, 29, and 26. They work in different companies IBM, CTS, TCS, Wipro, Infosys, Accenture, HCL, and KCP. All the given information is not necessarily in the same order.
 
Naren’s age is 27 and sits second to the right of Jesi, who works in KCP. Kasi does not work in CTS or Wipro. Badri’s age is multiple of 5 and its immediate neighbour is neither Naren nor Jesi. Two persons sit between Parul and Maya who works in Wipro. Arav's age is 23 and he works in TCS. The one who works in IBM sits opposite to the one whose age is 28. Naren sits opposite to Parul who works in Accenture. The one whose age is multiple of 9 does not work in HCL. There are as many people sitting between the one who works in TCS and the one who works in KCP as sitting between the one whose age is 24 and the one whose age is 28. The one who works in HCL and the one who works in Infosys are immediate neighbors. Maya’s age is not multiple of 6. The difference between the age of the one who works in HCL and the one who works in IBM is 6, but ages of both of them are even number and both are immediate neighbors of the one whose age is a prime number. The one who works in TCS is immediate left of Parul and immediate right of the person whose age is 25. The one who works in IBM is older than the one who sits on the immediate right of the person, whose age is 29.

How many persons sit(s) between the one who works in HCL and the one who works in CTS, when counted from the left of the one who works in HCL?
» Explain it
E
Following the common explanation, we get "total 4 persons".

Naren’s age is 27 and sits second to the right of Jesi, who works in KCP.
 
Badri’s age is multiple of 5 and its immediate neighbour is neither Naren nor Jesi.
 
Naren sits opposite to Parul who works in Accenture.
 
The one who works in TCS is immediate left of Parul and immediate right of the person whose age is 25.
 
Arav's age is 23 and he works in TCS.

 
Inference
 
All are facing centre (Not facing away from centre)
 
Badri’s age is multiple of 5 (i.e. 25 only possible numbers given)
 
As per given statement, we get following seating,

The one who works in HCL and the one who works in Infosys are immediate neighbors.
 
The difference between the age of the one who works in HCL and the one who works in IBM is 6, but ages of both of them are even number and both are immediate neighbors of the one whose age is a prime number.
 
The one who works in IBM sits opposite to the one whose age is 28.
 
The one whose age is multiple of 9 does not works in HCL.
 
There are as many people sits between the one who work in TCS and the one who work in KCP sits between the one whose age is 24 and the one whose age is 28.

 
Inference
 
Out of given ages, Difference (two even numbers) = 6, are only possible for [26, 32].
 
So the age of the person who works in HCL/IBM is 26/32. They are the immediate neighbor of the one whose age is a prime number.
 
We have only two prime numbers 23 and 29. From above figure, Age 23 is an immediate neighbor of Accenture. So another prime number (29) must be the immediate neighbor of HCL/IBM.
 
By using this information, we get

Kasi does not work in CTS or Wipro.
 
There are two persons sit between Parul and Maya who works in Wipro.
 
Maya’s age is not multiple of 6.
 
The one who works in IBM is older than the one who sits on the immediate right of the person, whose age is 29.

 
Inference
 

The one who works in IBM is older (32 age) than the [one who sits on the immediate right of the person, whose age is 29.] is one who works in HCL (26 age)
 
Maya who works Wipro, aged 28 (which is not multiple of 6).
 
Kasi not working in CTS or Wipro, then in CTS Badri should work. Kasi/Teja may work in either IBM or HCL.
 
Thus we get final Seating arrangement,
