- A is in the middle of one row.
- F is the left of D and facing C.

- Only one person between C and E.
Ques1: Which of the following in the same Row?

Solution: For these types of questions, firstly You need to make arrangements according to statements given in question.
See the following arrangements, statement wise. There can be two types of arrangements. You can use any of these.
First arrangement (in red) shows A is in the middle of one row.
Second arrangement (in blue) shows F is the left of D and facing C.
Third arrangement i.e. final arrangement (in green) shows B and E are not in the same row.
Only one person between C and E.
Once you are ready with the arrangements, read the questions, and answer accordingly.
1. Out of given options, C,A,E are in same row.
2. Interchanging positions of C and E, right of E will be 'A'.
3. Left of D = 'F'
4. Faces A = 'F'
5. Out of given options 'EF' not facing each other.
6. Out of given options, 'EB' are facing each other.
7. Ab is not facing each other. Therefore, first option is false.
E is not facing A, second option also wrong
F is left of D, therefore, 3rd option is right.
See it becomes very easy to answer all the questions in a set, if you are able to make the arrangements in a right way. If out of all the questions, any one of question is giving you a confusing answer, that means you did wrong arrangements. So, firstly try to make a mind map or the arrangements accurately.
