Question: 1

In a row of girls, Sita and Monika occupy the ninth place from the right end and tenth place from the left end, respectively. If they interchange their places, Sita and Monika occupy seventeenth place from the right and eighteenth place from the left, respectively. How many girls are there in the row?

(A) 24

(B) 25

(C) 26

(D) 27

Ans: C

Since Sita and Monika exchange places, so Sita’s new position is the same as Monika’s earlier position.

∴ Number of girls in the row = (16 + 1 + 9) = 26.
