The questions of Order and Ranking chapters are considered as important questions in the Logical Reasoning section of various Bank PO, Clerk, SSC, and Railways exams. In this article, we will discuss and solve the Advanced-level Order and Ranking questions in two parts level-2 and Level-3; and for Basic-level Order and Ranking Questions and Answer visit our Basic-level Order and Ranking Chapter.

Level 2

Q1. In a row of kids all are facing North, K is 35th from the left end while R is 20th from the right end and 9th to the right of E. If K sits second to the left of E then, find out the total number of persons of the row?  

1) 65  

2) 67

3) 68

4) Can’t be determined

5) None of these

Ans: 1

Solution:

Here, R is 20th from the right end and 9th to the right of E. Therefore, E is (20+9) = 29th from the right ends.  

Again, given that, K is 35th from the left ends and K sits second to the left of E. Therefore, E is (35+2) = 37th from the left ends.  

The total number of students is:  

= E’s position from the right ends + E’s position from the left ends – 1

= 29 + 37 – 1 = 65

Q2. Among Ayush, Jindal, Ketan, Urvashi and Mahi, each one of them having different height, Urvashi is taller than Ketan. Ayush is taller than Urvashi and Jindal (both) but not as tall as Mahi. Who among them is the third tallest?

1) Ayush

2) Jindal 

3) Ketan  

4) Urvashi 

5) Can’t say

Ans: 5

Solution:

Data is insufficient to answer the given question.

Q3. In a company of 41 employees, L rank is 38th from the left end and S rank is 17th from the right end. How many students are sitting in between L and S?

1) 13

2) 14

3) Can’t be determined

4)1 2

5) None of the above

Ans: 4

Solution:  

Here, the total number of persons is less than the sum of the position of L and the position of S.  

Formula: Number of persons between that two persons = (Sum of positions of two different persons/things from both sides) – (Total number of persons/things) – 2

Number of persons between L and S = (38+17)-41-2= 55-41-2 = 12

Hence, the number of persons sitting between them is 12.  

Q4. J is 16 ranks ahead of K in a class of 33. If K’s rank is 7th from the last, what is J’s rank from the top?

1) 11th

2) 10th  

3) 12th  

4) 18th  

5) None of the above

Ans: 1

Solution:

Given that J is 16 ranks ahead of K and K’s rank is 7th from the last.

Hence, J ranks is = (16+7) = 23th from the last.

Therefore, the rank of J from the top is = 33 – 23 + 1 = 11th

Q5. There are some crows sitting in a row and all of them are facing north. C1 is sitting 24th  from the left end and C2 is sitting 16th from the right end. C2 sits 20th to the left of C1. What is the total number of crows sitting in the row?

1) 18

2) 19

3) 21

4) 12

5) 26

Answer: 2

Solution:

C1 is 24th from left end and C2 is 20th to left of C1. So, C2 is 4th from left end and given 16th from right end, so total = (4+16) – 1 = 19

Q6. In a row of boxes, B1 is 20th from the right end and B2 is eleventh from the left end. If they interchange their positions, B2 becomes fifteenth from the left end. How many Boxes are there in the row?

1) 34  

2) 35        

3) 30        

4) 29        

5) None of these

Ans: 1

Solution:

Here, after interchange, B2 took the position of B1.

Therefore, the total number of boxes  

= B1 position before interchange + B2 position after interchange – 1

= 20 + 15 -1 = 34

Q7. In a packet, the number of sticks is twice that of red balls and all of these are arranged in a row. There is a Red ball and its rank is 18th from the top. Suppose there are 9 sticks ahead of Red ball. If the total articles in the packet are 42, then find the number of balls behind Red ball in the ranking order?

1) 7

2) 6

3) 9

4) More than 7

5) None of the above

Ans- 5

Solution:

Here, the total number of articles of the packet is 42.

Therefore, the number of Balls and sticks are 14 and 28 respectively.

Again, Red ball rank is 18th from the top and there are 9 sticks ahead of Red ball.

Therefore, the number of balls ahead of Red ball is = 17 – 9 = 8  

Hence, number of balls after Red ball is = 14 – 8 – 1 = 5

Q8. In a row of females members, who are facing north. Neha is 10th from the left end and Seema is 8th from the right end. Seema interchanges her position with the one who is sitting 6th to the right of Neha and now Seema is 8th from the right end. How many females members are there in that row?

1) 20

2) 23

3) 32

4) 15

5) 19

Ans-2

Solution:

Given that, Seema interchanges her position with the one who is sitting 6th to the right of Neha, so the position of Seema after interchange is (10+6) = 16th from the left end and also she is 8th from the right end, so the total number of females members is (16+8)-1 = 23

Directions (5-6): Read the following information carefully to answer the questions given below.  

Six friends went for running– M, N, O, P, Q and R run at a different speed. Q runs slower than P but is not the slowest. M runs faster than P but slower than N. The one who runs the second fastest runs at the speed of 52 km/hr. The one who runs the second slowest runs at the speed of 30 km/hr. The running speed of O is more than 52 km/hr.

Q7. A, B, C, D, and E, picked different quantities of Coconut from a Shop. B picked one fourth quantity of E and two times quantity of E is equal to the three times quantity of C. A got less quantity than D but he is not having the least quantity. The difference between E and C’s quantity is equal to the quantity of D.

Q. Who among the following has picked the second least quantity of Coconut?

1) E  

2) B  

3) C  

4) None of these        

5) Can’t be determined

Ans: 1

Solution:

It is given that,

E-C=D, 2E=3C and B=1/4E

From the above information, we get

B/C=3/8 (i.e., B=3, C=8)

Hence, the final arrangement will be,

E(12) > C(8) > D (4) > A > B(3)

Hence, A has picked the second least quantity of Coconut among them.

Q8. Six participants named Arti, Sandhya, Hema, Jyoti, Lokesh and Kashira won different monetary prizes in a competition. Kashira did not win the least money among them. Arti got one third money of  Sandhya and four times money of Kashira’s money. The total money won by Lokesh and Kashira is equal to the total money won by Arti and Hema. The difference in money received between Hema and Lokesh is equal to the money which is won by Jyoti.   

Q. If Kashira won 15000, then what will be the possible money won by Jyoti?

1) 6000  

2) 17000  

3) 49000  

4) 45000          

5) 65000

Ans: 4

Solution:

It is given that,

Arti = 1/3 Sandhya, Arti = 4 Kashira

Lokesh + Kashira = Arti + Hema (equation 1); and Hema – Lokesh = Jyoti

So, we found that, Hema = Lokesh + Jyoti

After, putting the value of Arti=4Kashira and Hema = Lokesh + Jyoti in equation 1, we get;

Lokesh + Kashira = 4 Kashira + Jyoti + Lokesh

3 Kashira = Jyoti

If Kashira won 15000, then the possible money won by Jyoti will be (3×15000) = 45000

Hence, the possible money won by Jyoti is 45000.

Directions (9-10): Read the following information carefully and answer the question.

In a School, there are six teachers named P, Q, R, S, T, and V. Each of them teaches a different subject, i.e. Biology, Zoology, Music Instrument, History, Math and Chemistry. Each of the teachers gets a different salary.

R gets second highest salary and his teaching subject is neither Chemistry nor Music-instrument. T gets the least salary among them and his teaching subject is neither Math nor Biology.
