Sitting arrangement puzzles.. keep that for the end as it will take long time to solve. Pick up all coding decoding deductions syllogisms questions first.

Final word
Every slot and day exam of IBPS different so you might get different set of questions.

Never get touchy in IBPS about any question and hence do not waste time if you are not able to crack it within 1 min. We have seen, many candidates this year get stuck with questions like RC, quant or seating arrangement/puzzles in reasoning part and waste precious time on these. Never do that. If you feel that you might get stuck, leave it for second round.
