  1. They are facing each other and looking on the direction mentioned. Only when are back to back they cannot see each other.

  2. because they are watching towards each other….. 1st look towards 2nd who is standing in front of him i.e. west and vice versa

  3. The Ship is moving either north to south or south to north. Then automatically the two persons standing on opposite SIDES of the ship can see each other too !
