Directions (1-5): Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below:
Eight friends A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H are sitting around a circular table, but not necessarily in the same order all are seated at equal distance, all are facing in same direction. All of them have a lucky number i.e. 141, 242, 324, 384, 427, 835, 844, and 960 but not necessarily in the same order.E’s lucky number is 2.5 times of D’s lucky number. D is not an immediate neighbor of C and the one whose lucky number is 835. There is an angle of 180 degree ̊ between H and G who is not an immediate neighbor of D. The one whose lucky number is 844 and the one whose lucky number is an odd number as well as not divisible by 7 sit opposite to each other. There is an angle of 135 ̊ between F and the one whose lucky number is 141. C sits at 90 degree ̊ clockwise direction of A. F’s lucky number is 7th highest and is not an immediate neighbor of C. Lucky number of the one, who sits 2nd to right of C is an odd palindrome number. G’s lucky number is perfect square. There is an angle of 90 ̊ between A and B. C’s lucky number is 7th lowest number.
