25. (d): In the above question we have to find which
statement can be concluded from the given
passage.
For I-This is not true because it is not given in the
above passage that G o o g l e’ s market is not good
th a t’s why Google has decided to launch new
service.
For II-This statement is irrelevant. Because Google

services, we can ’ t conclude this from the given
passage.
For III- There is a sentence in the passage “Th e
results will aim to streamline such listings by
eliminating duplicate jobs posted on different

conclude statement III from the given passage.
For IV- This is vague in the given context because
Google will also show employer ratings from
current and former workers, it is given in the
passage.

Directions (26-29):
By using given information:
House P is located fourth to the right of House D, which is
located to the immediate left of House R. Number of Houses
located to the left of House P is one more than the number
of Houses located between House R and House P. Only two
houses are located to the left of House A. House D is 2

from one of the ends. We have two possible cases for that
Case 1 and Case 2.

The number of houses located between House P and House
A is one less than the number of Houses located between
House T and House C. House T is located near House P. Now
we have two more possible cases Case1(a) and Case2 (a).

Only one house is located between House F and House Q
and the Gates of both of the houses do e sn ’ t open in south
direction. Now Case1 will be eliminated as we ca n’ t place
House Q and House F.

Only one house is located between House E and House S,
which is not located near House C. Now case 2(a) will be
eliminated as we c an’ t place House E and House S. House B

First we try to solve the blood relations:
D is the mother of Q and she sits opposite to S. A is the
father of Q, who is a female. Both C and R is children of P,
who is married to Q. B and R are the male members. C is a
female. S is the sister-in-law of Q. We conclude that B is the
bother of Q and married to S. The singer is married to the
doctor.

Now we place all persons in the circular seating
arrangement.
The one who is Brother of Q sits second to the left of
Banker. P sits opposite to Q, who is a Banker. Two persons
sit between S, who is a doctor and brother of Q. D is the
mother of Q and she sits opposite to S. We have four
possible cases for this Case1, Case2, Case3, Case4.

D’ s Daughter sits third to the left of D. Now Case2 and
Case4 will be eliminated.

B who faces inside sits opposite to the Dancer. The Writer
sits second to the right of the Dancer. The singer sits second
to the left of Q. Three persons sit between A, who do esn ’ t
sit near to Banker and the one who is Nurse. D is an
Engineer. C is a female but she is not a dancer. The teacher
and the writer face inside. Not more than four persons face
same direction. Now case1 will be eliminated.

R does not sit immediate left of S. Now Case3 will be our
final arrangements and their professions.
