## High Level Puzzles for IBPS PO 2017

There are 8 professors- P, Q, R, S, T, U, V and W sitting around a circular table (not necessarily in order) facing towards the center. They teach different programming languages- Java, C, PHP, SQL, Swift, Ruby, Python, and Perl (not necessarily in order) at the university. P sits opposite V. R sits exactly between T and W. The person sitting to the immediate left of P teaches Ruby. U teaches Python and sits exactly between V and P. U sits on the immediate right of T. Q teaches Perl and he sits exactly between the person who teaches C and the person who teaches Python. The person who teaches PHP sits to the immediate right of the person who teaches Java and opposite to the person who teaches Swift. R does not teach SQL.

1.Who teaches Ruby?

a. R
b. W
c. V
d. None of the above
e. Cannot be determined

A. R

Let us give numbers to positions starting from P as 1, 2….8 in clockwise direction. Hence P is at 1 and V is at 5. The person sitting on the immediate left of P teaches Ruby, so he sits at position 2. U teaches Python and he is equidistant from V and P. So, U is at position 3 or 7.
Case 1:
U sits at position 7. U sits on the immediate right of T. So, T sits at position 8. R sits exactly between T and W. So,
Case 1.1 – R sits at position 2 and W sits at position 4. Q teaches Perl and he sits exactly between the person who teaches C and the person who teaches Python. The person who teaches PHP sits to the immediate right of the person who teaches Java and opposite to the person who teaches Swift. So, Q sits at position 6 and teaches Perl. V teaches C and P teaches Java. So, T teaches PHP and W teaches Swift. So, S who sits at position 3 teaches SQL.
Case 1.2 – R sits at position 3 and W sits at position 6. Q teaches Perl and he sits exactly between the person who teaches C and the person who teaches Python. So, Q sits at position 4 and P teaches C. The person who teaches PHP sits to the immediate right of the person who teaches Java and opposite to the person who teaches Swift So no such case is possible So this case is rejected.

Case 2:
U sits at position 3. U sits on the immediate right of T. So, T sits at position 4. R sits exactly between T and W. So,
Case 2.1 – R sits at position 5 and W sits at position 8. So, Q sits at position 7 and teaches Perl. He sits exactly between the person who teaches C and the person who teaches Python. So, no such case is possible. So, this case is rejected.

Case 2.2 – R sits at position 7 and W sits at position 2. If Q sits at position 8 and teaches Perl. Then S sits at position 6. And V teaches C. The person who teaches PHP sits to the immediate right of the person who teaches Java and opposite to the person who teaches Swift. So, no such case is possible. So, this case is rejected. If Q sits at position 6 and teaches Perl. V teaches Java. S teaches Swift. So, R
teaches SQL. But, R does not teach SQL. So, this case is rejected.

2. S teaches which programming language?
a. PHP
b. Java
c. Swift
d. SQL
e. Cannot be determined

D. SQL

Case 1.2 – R sits at position 3 and W sits at position 6. Q teaches Perl and he sits exactly between the person who teaches C and the person who teaches Python. So, Q sits at position 4 and P teaches C. The person who teaches PHP sits to the immediate right of the person who teaches Java and opposite to the person who teaches Swift So no such case is possible So this case is rejected.

Case 2:
U sits at position 3. U sits on the immediate right of T. So, T sits at position 4. R sits exactly between T and W. So,
Case 2.1 – R sits at position 5 and W sits at position 8. So, Q sits at position 7 and teaches Perl. He sits exactly between the person who teaches C and the person who teaches Python. So, no such case is possible. So, this case is rejected.

Case 2.2 – R sits at position 7 and W sits at position 2. If Q sits at position 8 and teaches Perl. Then S sits at position 6. And V teaches C. The person who teaches PHP sits to the immediate right of the person who teaches Java and opposite to the person who teaches Swift. So, no such case is possible. So, this case is rejected. If Q sits at position 6 and teaches Perl. V teaches Java. S teaches Swift. So, R
