V, U, and T are sitting around a circular table, facing the center. A, B, and C are sitting around the same table but two of them are not facing the center (they are facing the direction opposite to center). V is second to the left of C.

Question 2 Figure (Part - 1)

> C is second to the right of T.

Since T is facing the center, this is possible in Case 2 only.

Question 2 Figure (Part - 2)

> B is third to the left of T. A and C are not sitting together.

Question 2 Figure (Part - 3)

> U is second to the right of A. Two of A, B, and C are not facing the center.

This implies A is facing the center.

Question 2 Figure (Part - 4)

Now let’s answer the questions:

1. B and C are not facing the center. So, C is the correct option.

2. T is third to the left or right of B. So, D is the correct option.

3. V is second to the left or fourth to the right of C. So, D is the correct option.

A – White (×)

A <- (Burger) (×)

IV. The only person who is between E and F eats Strawberry. The person who is on the left side of the person in a White T-shirt does not eat Patties.
