# Sitting Arrangement: Polygonal Arrangement

In this type of arrangement, we have to place the objects or persons on the structure of polygons (triangle, quadrilateral, pentagonal, hexagonal, octagonal etc.).

Example (1): Four boys and four girls are sitting around a square table facing the center. One person is sitting in each corner and at the mid point of each side of the square. Rita is sitting diagonally opposite to Sweta who is to the right of Hina. Shyam who is sitting to the left of Rita is diagonally opposite to the Govind, who is to the left of Rakesh. The position of Rahul is not to the right of Rita but in front of Puja. Find who is sitting opposite to the Hina?

Hence, according to the picture, Rakesh is sitting opposite to the Hina.

Example (2): Eight friends are sitting at an octagonal table. Each person is sitting in one corner facing the center. Mohan is sitting slant in front of Rahul. Rahul is to the right of Shekhar. Niraj is sitting beside Shekhar and in front of Rohit. Rohit is to the left of Vishal. Shivani is not to the right of Mohan but is in front of Puja. Find who is sitting to the left of Shivani?
