In a queue, A is 18th from the front while B is 16th from back.If C is 25th from the front and is exactly in the middle of A and B,then now how many persons are there in queue?

A position= 18
C position= 25
Distance between C and A= 25-18 = 7
As C is in the middle of A and B. Though, the position of B from the front = Position C + 7
                                                                                                                        = 25 + 7 = 32
As B is at the 16th position from the back it means that there are 15 positions after B.
Therefore, number of people in the queue= Position B from the front + 15
                                                                  =32 + 15 = 47
There are 47 people in the queue.
