H is immediate left to F. Two persons sit between E and C but none of them sits at any end. D and B are immediate right to each other. More than four persons sit between E and B. G faces north and does not sits at any end and is not next to F. C faces same direction as B but opposite to A. Either E or C is next to A.H and E are immediate left to each other. H does not face south.

Q1. How many persons are sitting between E and F?
two
one
three
four
none of these
Solution:
A sits at one of the ends. Two persons sit between A and F, both face same direction. Two persons sit between E and C but none of them sits at any end. D and B are immediate right to each other. G faces north and does not sits at any end and is not next to F. Either E or C is next to A. There will be four cases:
More than four persons sit between E and B. H and E are immediate left to each other. H does not face south.  So, case 3 and case 4 gets eliminated. C faces same direction as B but opposite to A. So, case 2 gets eliminated.
