The Answer Should be A. while given statements shows that B is sitting opposite to C or B is the partner of C.

Partner for this game is not defined. Assumption in the answer is sitting across defines the partner.

Chandini said: (Nov 7, 2013)  
How can it be said that the persons sitting opposite are partners?

Rishabh said: (Nov 5, 2014)  
Question has a flaw. Its not certain that partner should sit opposite.

Aniket Kumar said: (Nov 20, 2014)  
Answer should be D because C partner is not defined.

Pratiksha said: (Sep 15, 2015)  
According to me, answer is D because in I statement their is no any relation between C and B and same in II statement.

Pabitra said: (Oct 11, 2015)  
Person sitting in opposite is partner! This statement is assumption. We don't assume in data sufficiency.

So answer is D.

Lund said: (Jul 20, 2016)  
Yes, the answer is D.

Anirudh Raj said: (Sep 7, 2016)  
@Aniket,

Why don't you understand logic before posting, how is the partner of C not defined and in which statement after the assumption?

Lund'S Mom said: (Sep 7, 2016)  
Option D is right.

Suhani said: (Apr 3, 2017)  
Opposite is partner or neighbour is partner?

Please explain the answer.

Tushar Mehta said: (Apr 8, 2017)  
It hasn't been defined that those sitting opposite are partners.

So, should have been E.

Sdfasdf said: (Sep 21, 2017)  
Answer should be D with the help of above statements one cannot make clear that who is partner of whom?

Amol said: (Nov 15, 2017)  
Statement 1 and 2 does not give any clarity on partners as same is not mentioned in both statements.

Answer should be D.

Sindhu said: (Mar 14, 2018)  
The answer should be B.

Because from the statement 2 alone we can get the answer, so what is the need of 1st statement when we can get it from the only 2nd.

Mithila said: (Jun 4, 2018)  
'D' is the answer.

Dinesh Ranwa said: (Jun 21, 2018)  
Partners sit diagonal each other, with the playing surface in the middle, so that opponents have a chance to see the signals.

Obirro said: (Jan 30, 2020)  
The answer is E, because in card game if there are 4 players those 4 is divided into two teams. Team 1 has two players, in the same way, team 2 having two players. The players in each team will sit opposite to each other. In statement 1 says D is opposite to A which means obviously B is opposite to C, 2nd statement speaks the same.

Yashu Naidu said: (Aug 10, 2020)  
C is correct because if D is opposite to A, then B will be opposite to C.

Krushna Pisal said: (Oct 31, 2020)  
The right Answer is D.
