Given:
→8 friends from eight different cities
→Sitting around a circular table
→4 friends – facing inside
→4 friends – facing outside

Solution:
In questions, where the seating arrangement is a circle, then the following points should be kept in mind.
→Always start filling the position from the bottom-most position
→If phrase to the right is used then the position should be filled in anti clock-wise direction

→If the phrase to the left is used then clockwise direction.

Clue: 1 Abhijeet focus the centre – sits 3rd to the right of Rakesh

→Always the 1st person in the 1st clue is filled in the 1st position of the circle
→Here, Abhijeet focus centre – so filled in position 1 facing centre
→Now, he sits 3rd to the right to Rakesh (facing/not facing centre)
→So tentative position of Rakesh
· If facing centre, 6
· If facing outside, 4

Clue: 2: Rohit belongs to Kolkata & faces the person who belong to Bangalore
→This clue clearly states that Rohit – Kolkata
→Rohit faces the centre
→Rohit faces the person from Bangalore
→The person from Bangalore – faces the centre

→Further in the question it is revealed that
· Rahul sits between the person who belongs to Kolkata → Rohit and the one from Rajkot.
· Rahul is on the immediate left of Rohit
→Keeping all these points in mind. Let us not consider
· Tentative position of Rakesh (4 & 6) and positions opposite to them (8 & 2) respectively. As by question Rakesh-Patna
→Similarly let us not consider position 5 as we done know the city of Abhijeet yet (may/may not be Bangalore)
→This leaves position 3 & 7
· Now position 7 can also be ignored as Rakesh may or may-not be on the immediate left of Rohit where Rahul should be
Therefore, this leave position
3 for Rohit – Kolkata
2 for Rahul
7 for the person from Bangalore.
Since, Rahul is between the persons from the Kolkata
· Rajkot – shows that
→Abhiject – Rajkot

Clue 3: Abhishek sits 3rd to the right of Ramesh from Bhopal
→From this clue we can infer that
· Ramesh is from Bhopal
· Abhishek is 3rd to the right of Ramesh
· Direction faced by Ramesh or Abhishek unknown
→Position considered for Ramesh – Bhopal → 5 & 8
→Now, Ramesh cannot be at 8 because,
· From question, the person who belongs to Chennai is immediate neighbor of the person from Rajkot (i.e., Abhijeet)
· Rahul cannot be from Chennai because Anil – immediate neighbor of person from → Gwalior & Chennai
Position 8 is for person from Chennai
→This leaves position 5 → Ramesh – Bhopal
· If Ramesh faces centre then Abhishek will be at 5
· If Ramesh faces outside, then Abhishek will be at 2 (currently position of Rahul)
Therefore, Ramesh – Bhopal is at 5 which leave Abhishek at 8
· Abhishek from Chennai (Chennai – immediate of Rajkot)
· Abhishek faces outside (person from Chennai facing outward as in question)
· Ramesh faces centre

→The four friends – facing centre are found (1, 3, 5, and 7)
→Therefore, the remaining is facing outside
→Now the position of Rakesh – Patna is still not determined
· We now know Rakesh faces – outside
· Therefore, Rakesh cannot be in position 6 because Rohit – Kolkata will be 3rd to the right of Rakesh not Abhijeet
· That leaves, position 4 for Rakesh – Patna facing outside
→Now two persons are remaining Anil & Romil
· Romil cannot be in 7 as it’s the position for the person from Bangalore
· That leaves Romil – Gwalior (given in question) at 6 position
→Therefore the remaining person Anil will be at 7 by default
→Now the city Delhi is remaining in cities & Rahul in persons
So, by default → Rahul – Delhi
All the positions are filled as per the clues and the arrangement is as follows.
Answer:

Check some conditions given in the questions
→Rohit faces the person from Bangalore
→The person from Delhi faces the same direction as that as Gwalior person
→Rahul sitting between person from Kolkata & Rajkot
→Person from Chennai facing outwards & immediate neighbor of person from Rajkot
→Anil immediate neighbor of persons from Gwalior & Chennai
→Rahul – immediate neighbor of Rohit on the left

Question – 1
Friends from Bangalore → Anil → 3

Question – 2
Immediate neighbor of Romil → 3

Anil & Ramesh
Question – 3
True pair – 2 Anil – Bangalore

Question – 4
Position of Ramesh with respect to Rahul → 5

Here Rahul is facing outside, the position of Ramesh can be consider in two directions
→Clock wise: 5th to the right → not in options
→Anti clock wise: 3rd to the left

Question – 5
Interchange (Rohit & Anil) & (Abhijeet Rakesh) and find position of Romil with respect to Rakesh

→Here, only position is interchanged
→The direction faced are fixed to positions
Now position of Romil wrt Rakesh
→Clock wise: 3rd to left
→Anti clock wise: 5th to right → not in option
Romil is 3rd to left of Rakesh → 1

Some points to remember while solve such questions
→If ‘ A is not immediate left of B’ then the position A will be in the position next to the immediate left position of B
→This is also applicable for not immediate right phrase
→’A is 3rd to the right of B’ can also be considered as ‘B is 3rd to the left of A’ and vice versa
→Similarly ‘A is 2nd to the left of B’ can be considered as ‘B is 2nd to the right of A’
→In a question when, ‘A is 3rd to the right of B, who is B not A.
