PUZZLE-COMPLEX CIRCULAR SITTING WITH OCCUPATIONS TRICKS TO CRACK REASONING SCORE MAXIMUM IN EXAM- CIRCULAR PUZZLE TRICKS TO CRACK REASONING IN EXAMS- HOW TO SOLVE COMPLEX CIRCULAR PUZZLE IN EXAM-www.sschub.com


Puzzles are the most important part of reasoning section of SSC IBPS or any other competitive exam which covers 10-15 questions help to achieve cut-off score.

Puzzles are of many types i.e. circular, position or sitting arrangement, complex circular sitting arrangement with occupations.

Complex circular puzzles are most typical puzzles and time consuming also. Due to its complex/confusing nature and lack of practice Most of the candidates leave these puzzles and reduce opportunity to be in cut-off candidate list.

PARTITION MATHOD is one of 100% accurate and reliable methods to solve such 10-15 questions in 4-7 minutes.
PARTITION METHOD as its name implies cut the question in two different parts. One part is circular sitting arrangement of every object and other part is positioning/occupations of each object.
RULES FOR PARTITION METHOD:
1.      Count all objects and draw a circle. Mark all position in the circle (see example for clarity).
2.      Read the statement line by line (right to left) and write the arrangement as per statement (see example for clarity).
3.      Put cross mark (x) mark for vacant left and right positions (see example for clarity).
4.      Do the partition of all arranged statement into positioning of object and occupation (see example for clarity).
5.       Put first object on the middle at the bottom say A.
6.      According to object ‘A’ take all right positions in anticlockwise direction (see figure 1).
7.      According to object ‘A’ take all left positions in clockwise direction (see figure 1).
8.      Check and verify all the positions according to statement.

Question 1: (SBI PO 2012)
A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H are sitting around a circular table facing the centre. Each one of them has a different profession viz. doctor, engineer, architect, pilot, banker, teacher, businessman ad politician.
            The politician sits third to the right of G. C is an immediate neighbor of G. Architect sits second to right of C. B sits third to right of H. H is neither a politician nor an architect. Only one person sits between C and the teacher. Neither A nor F is a politician. Doctor sits second to right of A. Two people sit between D and the engineer. D is not a politician. Pilot is not an immediate neighbor of the politician. Banker sits second to left of A.

Solution: By applying PARTITION METHOD
1.      Total Objects = 08.
Draw a circle. Mark all position of objects in the circle as shown in step 1 in Figure 2.


2.      Read the statement line by line (right to left) and write the arrangement as per statement.
a.       The politician sits third to the right of G.

G x x Politician                                               (Represents Positions of Occupation)

b.      C is an immediate neighbor of G.
G C or C G                                                     (Represents Positions of Objects)
In this case, the position of C or G can be interchange because exact positions are not mentioned in the statement.
c.       Architect sits second to right of C.
C x Architect                                                  (Represents Positions of Occupation)
d.      B sits third to right of H.

H x x B                                                                        (Represents Positions of Objects)

e.       H is neither a politician nor an architect.

H= architect politician                                               (Represents Positions of Occupation)

f.       Only one person sits between C and the Teacher.
C x Teacher or Teacher x C                          (Represents Positions of Occupation)
In this case, the position of C or Teacher can be interchange because exact positions are not mentioned in the statement.
g.       Neither A nor F is a politician.

A & F = Politician                                          (Represents Positions of Occupation)

h.      Doctor sits second to right of A.

A x Doctor                                                      (Represents Positions of Occupation)

i.        Two people sit between D and the Engineer.

D x x Engineer or Engineer x x D                  (Represents Positions of Occupation)
In this case, the position of D or Engineer can be interchange because exact positions are not mentioned in the statement.
j.        D is not a politician.

D= Politician                                                   (Represents Positions of Occupation)

k.      Pilot is not an immediate neighbor of the politician.
Pilot Politician Pilot                                        (Represents Positions of Occupation)
l.        Banker sits second to left of A.

Banker x A                                                     (Represents Positions of Occupation)

3.      Do the partition of all arranged statement into positioning of object and occupation
Part 1: By taking all the positions of object (from rule 2).
Take all right positions in anticlockwise direction & take all left positions in clockwise direction.
a.      G C or C G                                   (Represents Positions of Objects)
b.      H x x B                                          (Represents Positions of Objects)
(i)        Put G on the middle bottom of the circle as same as shown in Step 2 in Figure 2.
(ii)      Put C with G in right or left as per choice. This will be checked right or wrong further same as shown in Step 3 in Figure 2.
(iii)    Put H first and then move anticlockwise direction to put B as same as shown in Step 4 in Figure 2.
(iv)    Now revise above statements:
G x x Politician           and      A & F = Politician
This means that A & F can’t get the position at third right from G which means that D or E may come. Let it become as shown in Step 5 in Figure 2. 
(v)      Now put A & F in vacant positions as shown in Step 6 in Figure 2.                    
                 

Part 2: By taking all the positions of Occupation (from rule 2).
Take all right positions in anticlockwise direction & take all left positions in clockwise direction.
a.      G x x Politician                 (Represents Positions of Occupation)- Step 1
b.      C x Architect                    (Represents Positions of Occupation)- Step 2
c.       H= architect politician     (Represents Positions of Occupation) – Verified OK
d.      Teacher x C                      (Represents Positions of Occupation) – Step 3
e.       A & F = Politician                        (Represents Positions of Occupation) – Verified OK
f.        A x Doctor                                    (Represents Positions of Occupation) – Step 4
g.      Engineer x x D                  (Represents Positions of Occupation) – Step 5
h.      D= Politician                     (Represents Positions of Occupation) – Verified OK
i.        Banker x A                                   (Represents Positions of Occupation) – Step 6

Arrange all the position of occupation in Step 1-6 same as shown in Figure 3.
