Seating Arrangement Practice Problems with Explanations for Bank Exams - Reasoning

Seating Arrangement (or Sitting Arrangement as some of us pronounce it) is one of the important topics of the Reasoning section of Bank Exams. The best thing here is, with little concentration and efforts you can get 5 out of 5 (and ofcourse 15 out of 15 in the case of IBPS CWE sometimes) marks easily. And the main disadvantage of these sort of problems is..... even a single mistake can ruin the entire solutions and it may results losing all the marks!!! So its always advisable to check your answers twice before coming to a conclusion and marking the answers. Here we are giving some practice problems of Seating Arrangement problems of the Reasoning Section. Just see the problems and try to solve them on your own. Later you can check with the answers given below with complete solutions. You can check more reasoning related problems with explanations here. Good Day and Happy Reading :)
