Its not mentioned that they are sitting in clockwise or anti clock wise direction so mukesh can also b the answer.

The correct ans is deepa or mukesh. You can consider any of the options. As mukesh is not given in options, the ans is deepa. !

All are facing center. So answer is deepa.

Lokesh Lodha said: (Jul 14, 2012)  
In such case when no clear idea can be made then consider only clockwise arrangement, because answer is most likely to be according to clockwise direction in such case.

Pavan said: (Aug 23, 2012)  
Either complete the Que. Or change options. Because there is incomplete information about pankaj and prakash position.

Ramya said: (Jul 3, 2014)  
Can I know how they are left and right to the person in the circle.

Rathna said: (Jun 13, 2015)  
Since the direction is not given we would have two set of answer for 1 and 2.

Moumita said: (Dec 11, 2015)  
I got my answer as Mukesh. Is this right?

Manish said: (Feb 9, 2016)  
There are 2 case (D, PA, M, L, PR), (L, PR, M, PA, PRA) clockwise rotation.

Shanky said: (Jun 29, 2016)  
Hi, as you can see the other arrangement (Lalit, Priti Mukesh, Pankaj, Deepa, Prakash (clockwise direction). Looking at question 2 (Who is sitting just right to Pankaj, Mukesh is not in the options, so this can't be the arrangement.

Niveditha S said: (May 16, 2018)  
As per the question, the answer would be Deepa and Mukesh. Since Mukesh is not in the option, we would have to assume that the answer is an option (a) Deepa

Jayadeep said: (Nov 4, 2018)  

The answer is Deepa because the right to Pankaj means we should feel that we are in his place and facing centre and then right to us is Deepa, not Mukesh (he was left to us).
