 Vinoliya said: (Oct 22, 2012) Hey guys ! Have Y as position if Y is in east position then X is in west position pointing that we conclude that P is in the middle of south west.

 Mahalakshmi said: (Dec 15, 2014) No its on south- west. I will explain. 1) First take the last one (in this problem, Y is in the East of X which is in the North of Z). So first fix 'Z' then 'X' Then 'Y'. 2) Then P is in the South of Z. 3) They ask with respect to Y. So the answer will be south west.

 Naveen said: (Dec 28, 2014) From Y's direction it is south-east.

 Rithanya said: (May 9, 2021) What you have to do is follow the arrow, the southeast is a right down tilted arrow and the southwest is a left down tilted arrow. So draw the diagram and the arrow of which relation you want to find and match the direction of the arrow!

 Tatyasaheb Pavane said: (May 30, 2021) Y is east of x which is north of z. Means x position will be west of Y and north of z. After he said p position will be south of z. There will be created a right-angle triangle.

 Jeya said: (Jun 18, 2021) Not getting this clearly, Please explain me.

 Jeya said: (Jun 18, 2021) Let me clarify; Simple; As per the question Y is EAST of X ( Here, understood that Y is placing a X's east position , neither Y NOT REMAINS in " EAST side ". So, the conclusion is Y is in a west side ( in view of X it was in a east side), Answer is SOUTH-WEST.

 Ishwar said: (Aug 5, 2021) Why they assume right side as west? Please explain this.

 Nasir Rather said: (Feb 4, 2022) We have to say according to the position of Y. So we have to consider Y in the middle. And that is why the answer is Southwest.

 Helping Hand said: (Sep 29, 2022) @All. Here is the explanation. West-X-East. So, Y is in the northeast of X then, P is in the southwest of y i.e. P is in the south and left of Y is west i.e., West-Y-East. So, the answer is South-West.
