**Logical Reasoning Question**useful for practice:**Question:**

Eight ants namely – P, Q, R, S, T, U, V and W – are lying at the vertices of a square grid of dimensions 3 cm × 3 cm. The vertex is defined as the point of meeting/intersection of two perpendicular lines and each of them can accommodate at most one ant. It is also known that:

(i) The horizontal distance between V and S is equal to that of Q and W, which, in turn, is equal to 2 cm.

(ii) The horizontal distance between any two of V, R and P is zero.

(iii) The horizontal as well as the vertical distance between Q and P is 1cm.

(iv) P, R, T and U are lying at the vertices that lie inside the grid.

*If the distance between R and T is equal to that of between U and W, then find the minimum possible distance between P and S*

(a) cm (b) 4 cm (c) 2 cm (d) 3 cm

**Solution : C**

The given information can be depicted as shown below:

Hence, the minimum distance between P and S
