    Interesting Problem

    A group of friends named X, Y, Z, W and P are sitting in a park. X is sitting next to Y and Z is next to W. W is not sitting with P. P is on the left end of the bench and Z is on second position from right hand side. X is on the right hand side of Y and to the right side of P. X and Z are sitting together.
    (1) Who is siiting in the center?
    (2) Y is sitting away from W how many places?

    Re: Interesting Problem

    I think Vasatha's solution is right. Well, JAmes, there is this clause in the question that says,
    "X and Z are sitting together"
    . Now in the solution,

    P X Y Z W, X is NOT sitting next to Z.

    Where as in Vasantha's solution,

    p,y,x,z,w all conditions appear to be satisfied.

    Correct me if I am wrong.

    Re: Interesting Problem

    I think everyone is wrong. When P is at the left end of the bench and X to the right side of Y, it should be W Z X Y P.
    Hence, X is at the center and
    Y is sitting 2 places away from W.

    Re: Interesting Problem

    Hi babu, i am sorry but i really fail to undertsand as to how p could be at the left end of the bench if the order suggested by you is - w z x y p.

    Well, the answer to the question is as suggested by vasanth.

    P y x z w

    as the above order matches all the clauses suggested in the question.

    Cheers...

    Re: Interesting Problem

    Hi,

    The correct order of sitting will be

    1 2 3 4 5
    p y x z w

    but not p x y z w, since x is right to both p and y.

    Answers:

    1. X is sitting in the center

    2. Y is sitting two places away from w

    Re: Interesting Problem

    Timmy, in the solution thay you say correct, all the conditions are not satisfying.

    See, P, X, Y, Z, W (James ans)

    1. X and Z are not together
    2. Z is previous to W, z must be next to W isn't it.

    Check my ans and correct me. PLs
