About Inward & Outward Sitting Arrangement:-
No matter what the model is, the following points are to be noted in order to solve the questions easily.
Read the entire puzzle and understand the statements correctly
- Identify the statements that give definite information
- For instance, let us take three statements and evaluate them
Statement 1: A is to the left of B.
The data in the statement is basic but not definite as the statement ONLY says that A is to the left of B. but, it does not specify where A is located from B.
Statement 2: A is second to the left of B. The data in the statement is definite as it clearly states that A is placed second to the left of B.
Some important points to be kept in mind before solving the sitting arrangement puzzles are:
- If A is sitting immediate left of B, it means B is on the immediate right of A
- To avoid confusion of left and rights in circular and other shapes’ seating arrangement problems, you should assume that all people are facing to the center (unless and until they specify the direction)
- It’s always a better idea to assume you are one among them so that it will be easier for you to get an idea of the arrangement
- If you are unable to get the idea from a line then better skip that line and go to the next line. You can revisit the skipped line after getting another clue
For circular sitting arrangement, those objects which are facing inwards to the center are favorable to us which means LEFT-RIGHT position are same to reference object and those objects which are facing outwards are unfavorable to us which means LEFT-RIGHT position is opposite to reference object.
Persons sitting in a CIRCLE or RECTANGLE or SQUARE facing AWAY from the centre:
- Seated to the left = Take Anti-clockwise direction
- Seated to the right = Take clockwise direction
Such types are problems are solved in the same manner as the problems for the center facing people are solved. The only change, in this case, is the direction of reference changes that confuses the candidates.
But nowadays, questions of some different patterns are asked in Bank exams like Some people are facing inward while some of them are facing outwards.
P, Q, R, S, T, U, and V are sitting in a circle. Five of them are facing the center while two of them are facing opposite to the center. R sits third to the left of S and both are facing the center. T is neither an immediate member of S nor of R. The one sitting exactly between S and U is facing to the center. V sits third to the left of P and V is facing opposite to the center. One of Q’s neighbors is facing opposite to the center.
STEPS TO SOLVE THE QUESTION
Draw a circle. Mark all positions of objects in the circle.
Note: Five of them are facing center means favorable to us and then left two are facing outward means unfavorable to us.
Now put S on the middle bottom position of the circle and position R on the left side (Clockwise direction) to S.
T is neither an immediate member of S nor of R. the statement leaves a single place for T to sit.
The one sitting exactly between S and U is facing to the center.
Then put U from the left of S by leaving one position blank.
V sits third to the left of P and V is facing outside to the center.
In this case the position of P and V is not discussed in reference to all other objects. So their position can be done by hit and trial method which is based on most convenient positions.
Now the left place is the only option for Q to sit.
As per the statement, one of Q’s neighbors is facing opposite to the center. This clearly tells us that T is facing opposite to the center. And according to the question, since five of them are facing the center, so U and Q also face the center. So, the final diagram we get is
This was all about the theory related to the topic.
