They are sitting in circle.

So opposites are those who completes the diameter.

The problem in circular arrangement is that if you rotate the circle then in some cases answer is changed. Please if anyone know about this.

This question have two possibilities which one your answer and Second.

Please assume that, they have sited in circular arrangement.

Mukesh priti lalit prakash deepa pankaj.

I have problem in Third Question, which is your answer is Deepa sit right of pankaj but my answer is Mukesh is right of Pankaj.

So to create conflict in question. So please to add one clue of sitting.

Use any one rotation. Either clockwise or anticlockwise.

Priti opposite is Pankaj. And Priti diagonally opposite means Deepa. I think this is meaning full answer dude.

Yashu said: (Jul 20, 2015)  
2 arrangements are possible definitely.

Sanjib said: (Jun 12, 2016)  
Two possible arrangement.

1. PRITI - MUKESH - PANKAJ - DEEPA - PRAKASH - LALIT - PRITI.

2. PRITI - LALIT - PRAKASH - DEEPA - PANKAJ - MUKESH - PRITI.

Here the second one follows the given answer.

2 arrangement never possible.

Use any one rotation. Either clockwise or anticlockwise.

In clockwise Deepa - Pankaj-Mukesh-Priti-Lalit-Prakash-Deepa (if start your series with Deepa).

In anti-clockwise Deepa-Prakash-Lalit-Priti-Mukesh-Pankaj-Deepa (if start your series with Deepa).

Both answers are correct.

But this is not 2 arrangement.

Only 1 arrangement with two dimensions (CW and ACW).

How come this? If they are in circle also opposite exact is Pankaj.

Jigar said: (Sep 2, 2017)  
Data is not enough. Here is two possible arrangements with this data.

Aaju said: (Sep 15, 2017)  
Yeah, am also got this two possible arrangements. I agree @Sanjib.

Apurva said: (Apr 29, 2018)  
Either clockwise or anticlockwise is supposed to be used both should give same answers your answers are only correct when we take anticlockwise as left and clockwise as right.

So this is wrong.

Two seating arrangements are possible.

Kashish said: (Nov 1, 2018)  
How can Preti is opposite to Deepa?

Maheshkumar said: (Apr 21, 2020)  
Can anyone please tell when should we take clockwise and when should we take anticlockwise?

Lalli said: (May 14, 2020)  
If the persons are facing towards center- Clockwise.

If the persons are facing outside- Anticlockwise.

Here Priti is opposite to Pankaj. How can it be Deepa as Priti is diagonally situated from Deepa?

Rakesh L said: (Sep 11, 2021)  
Facing to the centre means we have to go with an anticlockwise Direction, so left and right will be reversed.

Facing outwards to the centre means we have to go in a clockwise direction, so left and right.
