Directions (Qs. 1 - 5): Study the given information carefully to answer the given question: P, Q, R, S, W, X, Y and Z are sitting around a circular table with equal distances between each other (but not necessarily in the same order) Some of them face outside and some of them face the centre. Note: F Facing the same direction means if one faces the centre then the other also faces the centre and vice versa. F Facing the opposite directions means if one faces the centre then the other faces outside and vice versa. F Immediate neighbours face the same direction means if one neighbour faces the centre then the other neighbour also faces the centre and vice versa. F Immediate neighbours face the opposite directions means if one neighbour faces the centre then the other neighbour faces outside and vice versa. Y sits second to the right of Q. Only one person sits between Y and Z. W sits second to the left of Z. P is neither an immediate neighbour of Z nor Y. X sits to the immediate right of W. S sits second to the right of P. The immediate neighbours of Q face opposite directions. R sits second to the right of X. Immediate neighbours of R face the same direction. The immediate neighbours of Z face opposite directions.
