So the answer is (c). E and F are sitting in a closed circle facing the center. Who is to the right of C? (a) A (b) B (c) D (d) E (e) none of these (d) E (e)F 3. 1. (2)E is to the left of D. III) Read the following information and answer the Questions that follows. (4)F is between E and A._ _ Po _ P _ P _ _ _ Po _ _ C _ _ P P _ _ P P _ _ _ C _ C _ _ _ L So the arrangement becomes: 1 Po 2 P 3 Po 4 C 5 P 6 P 7 C 8 L Clearly the fourth book from the top is on composition. Who is to the left of B? (a) A (b) C (c) D 2. Which of the above given statements is superfluous? . (1)Six friends A. C. B. (3)C is between A and B. D.
