Tip #2: Draw a grid in questions when multiple possibilities can occur

Question: 8 trees: mango, guava, papaya, pomegranate, lemon, banana, raspberry and apple are in two rows of 4 in each facing North and South.

Lemon is between mango and apple but just opposite to guava.

Banana is at one end of a line and is to the right of guava tree.

Raspberry tree which at one end of a line, is just diagonally opposite to mango tree.

Which tree is just opposite to banana tree?

A. Mango       B. Pomegranate                     C. Papaya       D. Data is inadequate.


Filling Banana first at one end, and Guava to its left, we can find the corresponding position for Lemon, i.e., opposite to Guava.

On the sides of Lemon are Apple and Mango. Raspberry is at an end, being diagonally opposite to Mango. Thus, Mango is at the end next to lemon. This, determines the position of Apple and Raspberry as well. The empty positions can be occupied by Papaya or Pomegranate. We see that Mango is just opposite to Mango. So the answer is A.


Question: Based on the data given above, which tree is just opposite to raspberry tree?

A.   Papaya      B. Pomegranate     C. Papaya or Pomegranate        D. Data is inadequate


We can see that either papaya or pomegranate is next to Raspberry. The answer is C.
