Ranking and Order Shortcut Tricks

Ranking and Order Shortcut Tricks

Rank and order is an important point from the bank exam. In order and ranking questions, you have to find out the position of a person from left to right or from top to bottom. 

Now, let's discuss each different case in Rank and Order.



1) Find out total no. of persons in a line
In this question, the below formula is used.
Total no of persons= Left position in the line + Right position in the line-1.
For Example:
A is 25th from the left and 32nd from the right, find out the total no of persons in the line.
Total no of persons = Left position in the line + Right position in the line-1.
Total no of persons = 25 + 32 -1 = 56

2) Find the total no of persons if there is a given a difference
Total no of persons = person's position from the given side or from the top or bottom + given difference
For Example:
A's position from the top is 17th and the persons behind A are 7. Find out total no of persons in a raw.
Total no of persons = person's position from the given side or from the top or bottom + given difference
Total no of persons = 17 + 7 = 24

3) When total no persons and position of two different persons given from the opposite. Find out no of persons between this two persons. 


1) If Total no of persons> total of position of both opposite persons
Formula:
No of persons between two person's position = Total no of persons - total of both persons of opposite position
For example:
There are 58 persons in a row, in which A is 11th from the left and B is 22nd from the right side of the row. Find out no of people between A and B.
No of persons between two person's position = Total no of persons - total of both persons of opposite position
No of persons between two person's position =58 - (11+22)
                                                                  =58-33 
                                                                  =25 

2) If Total no of persons < total of position of both opposite persons
Formula:
No of persons between two person's position = Total of both persons of opposite position - total of all persons - 2
For example:
There are 50 persons in a row, in which A is 24th from the left and B is 30nd from the right side of the row. Find out no of people between A and B.
No of persons between two person's position =Total of both persons of opposite position - total of all persons - 2
No of persons between two person's position = (24+30) - 58
                                                                 =54-50-2 
                                                                 =2 

4) If persons interchange their positions in a row and the interchange position of one person given. 
Formula
1) Total no of persons in a row = person position before change + person position after change - 1
For Example:
In a row A is 11st from the left and B is 18th from the right, after interchanging their positions A becomes 29th from the left. Find the total no of persons in a row.
Formula
Total no of persons in a row = person position before change + person position after the change - 1
Total no of persons in a row = 11 + 29 - 1
                                         = 39

2) No of persons between A and B = person position after change - person position before the change - 1
Total no of persons in a row = 29 - 11 - 1
                                         = 17

3) New position of the second person after interchange = Position of the second person from right side before interchanging + (Position of the first person from left side after interchanging – Position of A from left side before interchanging)
New position of the second person after interchange = 22+ (29-11)
                                                                            = 18 + 18
                                                                            = 36
