Seating arrangement Types and Tips to solve with Example...
Hi aspirants we have seen so many are struggling to solve Seating arrangement, actually it is one of the important, logical and easy topic in the on going SBI, IBPS, other banks PO, clerical and Competitive exams. Anyone can score if you just remember these tips we specified below.
There are various models in the seating arrangement like
Single row arrangement
Double row arrangement
Circular arrangement
Rectangular arrangement
No matter what the model is, the following points are to be noted in order to solve the questions easily.
1. Read the entire puzzle and understand the statements correctly
2. Identify the statements that give definite information.
For instance let us take three statements and evaluate them
Statement (a): 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 (b): 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.
Statement (c): T is between Q who plays football and P in order of seating in a row. It can be understood as 'T is between Q and P. So, they may be seated as QTP or PTQ (so, the data is not definite) and 'Q plays football'.
3. Search for the connecting information.
4. Figure out the seating arrangement by clearly identifying the directions
Persons sitting in a ROW all facing same direction:



Persons sitting in two ROWs facing each other:



Persons sitting in a CIRCLE or RECTANGLE or SQUARE facing the centre:
Seated to the left = Take clockwise direction
Seated to the right = Take Anti-clockwise direction



Persons sitting in two CIRCLE or RECTANGLE or SQUARE facing away from centre:
Seated to the left = Take Anti-clockwise direction
Seated to the right = Take clockwise direction



Now let us discuss this with an example:
A, B, C, D, E. F, G and H are sitting around a circle facing the centre.
a) E is to the immediate right o A, who is second to the right of G.
b) D is not an immediate neighbour of C or H.
c) F is third to the right of C and second to the left of H.

Now, let us discuss how to understand the statements correctly:
The statement (a) says: E is to the immediate right of A. A is second to the right of G.
The statement (c) says: F is third to the right of C. F is second to the left of H.
Normally, we will be tempted to solve the question by picking up point by point from first. But, that is not correct. We should be careful in selecting the points to solve the puzzle by searching for definite information. Here, though (a) and (c) are definite points, we have to pick up (c) first as this point is connected to the point (b) (as 'C' and 'H' are discussed in both the points). In case, we take point (a) it is difficult to solve the question.



Though you find it difficult at first after practicing a few you will play with them as you did with other topics. Now fear not for seating arrangement. All the best...
