Reasoning Seating Arrangement for SBI PO 2019 | Seating Arrangement Puzzles PDF for SBI PO 2019

Directions: Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below:
 
Eight friends Anab, Manov, Bayaz, Takbir, Neaha, Pakija, Qumila and Vitna went to State bank of India for depositing different amount in their savings accounts and they all were asked to sit around a circular table facing outside the centre. All of them had different amount (in Rs) to deposit such as 4000, 6000, 15000, 1000, 2000, 3000, 9000 and 7000, but not necessarily in the same order.
 
The one who has the lowest amount to deposit sits opposite to the one who has the highest amount to deposit. Qumila deposited an amount which is sum of the amount deposited by his/her immediate neighbors. The one who deposited thrice the amount of Vitna sits opposite to Vitna. Pakija is an immediate neighbor of Neaha and Vitna. Pakija is neither an immediate neighbor of the one who deposited 6000 nor of the one who deposited 9000. Only one person sits between Vitna and the one who has an amount 9000 to deposit. The sum of the amount deposited by Anab and Vitna is equal to the amount deposited by Takbir, whose amount is multiple of 6. There are as many person(s) sitting between the one who has the lowest amount to deposit and Vitna as sitting between Neaha and Anab. Qumila has the highest amount to deposit in the savings account. The amount deposited by Vitna is not a multiple of 6. The person Bayaz has only 3000 Rupees to deposit. The one who has amount 7000 to deposit sits immediate left of Anab.
1
What is the average amount (In Rs.)deposited by Pakija and Manov?
» Explain it
E
Following the common explanation, we get "None of these".
 
Pakija = 1000 Manov = 9000 Average = [1000+9000] / 2 = 10000 / 2 = Rs.5000 

Hence, option B is correct.
 


Common Explanation
 
References
 
Different amounts to deposit are 4000, 6000, 15000, 1000, 2000, 3000, 9000 and 7000.
 
The one who has lowest amount to deposit sits opposite to the one who has highest amount to deposit.
 
Qumila has the highest amount to deposit in the savings account.
 
Qumila deposited an amount which is sum of the amount deposited by his/her immediate neighbors.
 
Only one person sits between Vitna and the one who has an amount 9000 to deposit.

The amount deposited by Vitna is not a multiple of 6.

 
Inference
 
Based on the given statements, we calculate the amount to be deposited at bank by 8 persons.
 
With these statements, we get two possibilities,
 

  Lowest Amount given = 1000

  Highest Amount given = 15000

  Qumila deposited highest amount  
 
  Then Qumila   =   15000 Rs
  sits  
opposite  to   the  one
  who  has  
1000  Rs
 
 

  We know Qumila   =   15000

  (It is the sum of his/her immediate
  neighbors)







 
  To get, Sum   =   15000

  6000 + 9000   =   15000

  (Only   possible combination  in   given
  amount)


  So, the persons depositing 6000 & 9000  
  are  the immediate neighbors of Qumila
 

 
Case 1 Case 2
   
 
References
 
The one who deposited thrice the amount of Vitna sits opposite to Vitna.
 
Pakija is an immediate neighbor of Neaha and Vitna.
 
Pakija is neither an immediate neighbor of the one who deposited 6000 nor of the one who deposited 9000.

 
Inferences
 
From above two cases, we see that Vitna sits opposite to Rs.6000
 
Given, thrice the amount (3 times) of Vitna sits opposite to Vitna. Only amount to get 3 times is Rs.2000
 
So clearly, Vitna has Rs.2000 and sits opposite to the one who has (3*2000 = Rs.6000)
 
Based on remaining statements, we get
 
Case 1 Case 2
   
 
References
 
There are as many person(s) sitting between the one who has the lowest amount to deposit and Vitna as sitting between Neaha and Anab.
 
The one who has amount 7000 to deposit sits immediate left of Anab.
 
The sum of the amount deposited by Anab and Vitna is equal to the amount deposited by Takbir, whose amount is multiple of 6.
 
The person Bayaz has only 3000 Rupees to deposit.

 
Inferences
 
From both cases, Pakija has the lowest amount = Rs 1000 
 
No one sits between Pakija (lowest amount) and Vitna. No one sits between Neaha and Anab.
 
Thus Anab sits immediate right of Neaha (in Case 1) and Anab sits immediate left of Neaha (case 2).
 
The one who has amount 7000 to deposit sits immediate left of Anab.  [Clearly, Anab doesn’t have Rs7000 to deposit in the account].
 
Finally, Anab + Vitna = Takbir (amount is multiple of 6)
 
Note: Vitna =  Rs2000, Bayaz =3000 Rs Pakija =1000 Rs Qumila =15000 Rs
 
Remaining amounts are [6000, 9000, 4000, and 7000]
 
Anab= Rs 7000 (not possible), as one who has amount 7000 to deposit sits immediate left of Anab.
 
If Anab =6000, Vitna =2000 Then Takbir = 6000+2000 = 8000 (not multiple of 6, so not possible)
 
If Anab=9000, Vitna = 2000 Then Takbir = 9000 + 2000 =11000 (not multiple of 6, so not possible)
 
If Anab= 4000, Vitna =2000 then Takbir =4000 + 2000 = 6000 (multiple of 6, which is possible)
 
Finally, Neaha sits opposite to 9000 (in both cases) 
 
Then Neaha = Rs 7000  , Manov = Rs 9000 . Then we get the completed seating,
 
Case 1  Case 2 [Eliminated as the one who has 
deposited 7000, sits to the immediate left
of Anab.]
   
 

Thus final arrangement can be obtained from Case 1 in the following manner:
 

 
2
How much amount (in Rs.) did Takbir deposit in savings account?
» Explain it
A
Following the common explanation, we get "Takbir-6000".

Hence, option A is correct.

  To get, Sum   =   15000

  6000 + 9000   =   15000

  are  the immediate neighbors of Qumila
