 Vijayakumar.V said: (Dec 23, 2010) Why can't be x placed in between Z AND R TO FORM THIS Sequence P S Z X R A ?

 Kamal Kumar said: (Feb 8, 2011) Because it is mentioned that S and Z is in middle.

 Aftab Khan said: (Mar 19, 2011) How it can possible that S is the Z of right?

 Sneha said: (Apr 21, 2011) It doesn't matter they asked who is at the right of p..i.e x

 Sangita said: (May 14, 2011) Its still not clear to me please give a broad explanation.

 Sangita said: (May 14, 2011) Its little confusing if I leave this part and do the rest as its takes a lots of time help.

 Ravi said: (May 26, 2011) This question is just a matter of: who is sitting to the right of P? Answer: A and P are at the ends. So, P-----A.. S and Z are in the middle. So, A-SZ-P..R is sitting to the left of A. So, The arrangement should be..P-SZRA..The remaining position should be X..The final arrangement: PXSZRA..Ok.. all the best for SBI POs..

 Anuprita said: (Jul 11, 2011) It also can be written as ARSZXP.

 Prasad Thakur said: (Aug 16, 2011) It has not mentioned whether they facing towards north or south. It assumed they face north?

 David said: (Sep 28, 2011) Sequence of these series is p_x_s_z_r_A ...

 Ria Yadav said: (Oct 3, 2011) Mrs anuprita it cannot be arszxp because its clearly written that are is in the left of p.

 Vivek said: (Jan 9, 2012) It must be like who is immediate right of P, then it can be clear..

 Satz Varavathi said: (Aug 25, 2012) Let's see S & Z is middle(its right or left is not important) A & P is end ,so it's have only one hand. R is left of A so the order is P?SZ(or zs)RA ?= x is answer.

 Sally said: (Jun 12, 2013) See, the trick is that you could just eliminate all those that they mentioned and you are left with X.

 Anantha said: (Nov 6, 2013) Please, R is supposed to be sitting to the left but the answer shows that he is in the right. See the left and right according to their sitting.

 Reshmi said: (Dec 26, 2013) Put in the form of straight lines in seating arrangement.

 Heena said: (Jul 15, 2014) SZ in the middle. P & A at ends so it can be P SZ A. Then it says R is left of A means P SZ R A. Location of X is not given so how can we assume it to be on the right of P?

 Rashmi said: (Aug 3, 2014) Why A can't be placed in first end and p in last end?

 David said: (Sep 6, 2014) But immediate left of A is not mentioned here so even if I placed are at 2nd place then it still satisfying the question given? Correct me if I'm wrong.

 Ram Lakshman said: (Mar 31, 2015) Yes, it is right sequence "P X S Z R A".

 Megha said: (May 20, 2015) There are 6 letters. S & Z is in middle 3rd, 4th place. A & T are at the ends i.e. 1st and 6th place. R is left to A so R should come to 5th place. Finally 2nd place is empty. So X will come to the right of P. 1 2 3 4 5 6. P X S Z R A.

 Dev said: (Sep 25, 2015) Possible sequences: P X S Z R A. P S Z X R A. P S Z R X A. These all are valid locations of X. If you don't know the answer, don't try to create a confusion here.

 Yerappa said: (Nov 4, 2015) Circle type is correct answer please find out that.

 Aniket said: (Dec 14, 2015) First of all in 6 words xz in middle. A and P at end. There is condition states that R is left of A. Because A, is at last position and then x remained. That's it because proper sequence is PXSZRA.

 Nagesh said: (Feb 24, 2016) Why can't we put r beside p?

 Som said: (Jul 25, 2016) How we conclude, on which direction they are facing?

 Alaka said: (Jul 26, 2016) Please mention the direction where all the person face.

 Javeed Basha Syed said: (Aug 8, 2016) Though the answer is correct how ever the sequence can also be P X "Z S" R A besides P X "S Z" R A.

 Prakhar said: (Aug 29, 2016) But it is not mentioned that R is immediate left of A, So how R can be placed on that position?

 Shiva Sagar said: (Oct 14, 2016) ARSZXP and PXSZRA both are correct because they have not mentioned any direction and in both the cases the answer is 'X'.

 Meghali Kutum said: (Nov 10, 2016) Yes, The correct order is P X S Z R A.

 Priyanka Kumari said: (Nov 22, 2016) The correct order is PXSZRA.

 Mahesh said: (Nov 25, 2016) The order of the arrangement is PXSZRA.

 Monika said: (Dec 8, 2016) Why it can't prszxa? Here also r to the left of A it is not mention immediate left.

 Eali Bal said: (Dec 19, 2016) It also can be written as ARSZXP.

 Akshat said: (Jan 9, 2017) It is not mentioned that they are facing in which direction. Then how to find it?

 Vamsi said: (Feb 18, 2017) @Eali. It can't be ARSZXP because "R" is to the left of A and A is in a corner.

 Vanshika said: (Feb 19, 2017) Hey, I think that the question is wrong as it is saying that A and P are in ends so A can be in any end and P can be in any end which means that the end S place of both is not specific and so everybody will put it in their way and all the answers will come out differently.

 Sumit said: (Mar 1, 2017) It can be PRSZXA. It is saying that r is to the left of A so it can be placed in 2nd place. So, the answer can be R.

 Jafar Rizvi said: (Aug 21, 2017) It can be PSZXRA. All conditions follow. Give reason if someone not agree.

 Raja Sekhara Reddy said: (Aug 29, 2017) R is sitting to the left of A, but they are not mentioned immediate left of A . So 'PRSZXA' also correct.

 Priya Jyoti Kumari said: (Sep 5, 2017) PZSXRA or PSZXRA arrangement is also possible. Then how X is right of P?

 Tarang D said: (Sep 26, 2017) Is the sequence PXZSRA possible?

 Guna said: (Sep 28, 2017) The Direction isn't given then how to solve this?

 Franklin said: (Nov 27, 2017) Can it be in the form- ARSZXP? And in this form, the answer remains same.

 Supriya said: (Feb 11, 2018) The seating arrangement could also be following P R S Z X A. Since its mentioned that R is to the left of A so R can be next left i.e at 2nd position from A or from last but one from P. In the question, it's just mentioned R is to the left of A and not immediate left. So the given sequence should also be correct i.e P R S Z X A.

 Ashmitha said: (May 2, 2018) According to me, the Seating arrangement was given wrong because they have given that A, P, R, X, S, and Z are sitting in a row. S and Z are in the centre. A and P are at the ends. R is sitting to the left of A. According to them the order would be: A R S Z X P and the question is wrong also as they did not mention the place of the letter '' X''. The end is P so there is no letter beside P and the option should be none of the above

 Sam said: (May 24, 2018) Could the arrangement be A R S Z X P also? Please tell me.

 Lakshmi Benur said: (Aug 5, 2018) How do we know whether they are facing towards North or South?

 Aditi said: (Aug 17, 2018) I agree @Rashmi.

 Vishnureddy said: (Jan 29, 2019) I got the sitting arrangement as follows. A P S Z X P. Is it right?

 Gsuevej said: (Apr 19, 2019) How can we say that who is first? Please tell me.

 Vrinda said: (Aug 26, 2019) It can even be R as it is not mentioned that R is at the immediate left of A.

 Jaipal said: (Oct 18, 2019) According to question, s and z is the middle but doesn't mention the position , So the take the position s and z is . . s/z. .z/s . .

 Arjun said: (Dec 10, 2019) Insufficient information given in the question, there may raise 4 possible sequences and all are correct. 1)PXSZRA 2)PRSZXA 3)PXZSRA 4)PRSZXA Since, it is not given that weather R is at immediate left to A or not. So, there might be two possible sequences, ie, (1)PXSZRA and (2)PRSZXA. Also, order for the middle letters S and Z is not given. So, we can also write sequence as (3)PXZSRA and (4)PRSZXA.

 Shekhar Sakharam Patole said: (Jan 27, 2020) How can we say that who is first? Please tell me.

 Chekwemoi Merab said: (May 10, 2020) @Patole. They said A and P are at the ends, that's not just enough for you to know where each of them lies but the fact that they said are lies to the left of A there you realize A must be at the right end then P at the left end. So the pattern will be PXSZRA or PXZSRA, I hope it helps.

 Kavitha said: (Nov 16, 2020) I am not understanding this.

 Pooja said: (Dec 8, 2020) It is wrong. Because it is not mentioned here that R is to the immediate left of A. And because of this there are many possibilities for P and R.

 Vivek Kumar said: (Jun 9, 2021) A,P,R,X,S and Z are sittion in a row, If X and Z are sitting in the center then the possibility will be as below. _ _ SZ_ _ _ _ ZS_ _. After that in the question, it is given that A and P are at ends. then the possibility will be A_SZ_P P_SZ_A A_ZS_P P_ZS_A. After that it is mentioned in the question that R is sitting to the left of A. then there is only two possible solutions as below. P_SZRA P_ZSRA in the above, cases the space is available on the right to P. and the only X is remaining to sit. Hence the sitting arrangement will be like this: PXSZRA or PXZSRA And in both cases X is to the right of P.
