Directions (Q. 11-15): Study the following information carefully to answer the given questions:

Eight members of a club are sitting around a circular table, viz Z, Y, X, W, V, U, T and S, but not necessarily in the same order. Four of them are not facing the centre. W is facing the centre and is third to the right of Z, who is third to the right of U, who is facing the centre. X is fourth to the left of T. S is third to the right of V, who is not a neighbour of T. V sits second to the right of X. Y is on the immediate right of T.

11. What is S’s position with respect to Y?
1) Third to the left
2) Second to the right
3) Second to the left
4) Either 2) or 3)
5) None of these

12. Who is second to the left of V?
1) W
2) X
3) Y
4) T
5) None of these

13. Which of the following pairs are neighbours of T?
1) W, Y
2) U, S
3) Z, W
4) Can’t be determined
5) None of these

14. Four of the following five are alike in a certain way and so  form  a  group.  Which  is  the  one  that  does  not belong to that group?
1) W
2) Y
3) V
4) Z
5) U

15. Which of the following statements is/are true?
1) Z is not facing the centre.
2) Y is second to the right of W.
3) T is facing the centre
4) Both 1) and 2) are true
5) None of these

1.2; No truck is a jeep  ? conversion  ? No jeep  is  a  truck.  Hence,  conclusion  I  does  not follow. Again, Some buses  are trucks (I) + No truck is a jeep (E) = I + E = O = Some buses are not jeeps.  Hence,  conclusion  II  follows.

2.5; All sofas are beds (A) + Some beds are tables  (I) = A  +  I  =  No  conclusion.  But  the possibility exists. Hence, conclusion I  follows. Again,  Some  beds  are  tables  ?  conversion ?  Some  tables  are  beds.  Hence, conclusion II also follows.

3.4; Some  papers are books  (I) + All books are pages (A) = I + A  = I  = Some papers  are pages.  Hence,  conclusion  I does  not  follow. Again, Some papers  are books  ? conversion ? Some books  are  papers. Hence, conclusion II  does  not  follow.

4.2; No desk is a shelf (E) + Some shelves are stools (I) = E + I  = O* = Some stools are not  desks. Hence,  conclusion II  follows  but  I does  not  follow.

5.5; Some radios are clocks  (I) +  No  clock is a laptop (E) = I + E = O = Some radios are not  laptops.  Hence,  conclusion  I  follows. Again, Some radios are clocks  ? conversion ? Some clocks are radios. Hence, conclusion II  follows.

6.2; T  ?S = R > Q > P Thus, T >  P is true. Hence, conclusion I  does not  hold  true. But, T > Q is true. Hence, conclusion II holds true
