**Directions (1-5): Read the following information carefully to answer the given questions.**

Eight persons C, D, E, F, K, L, M and N are seated in a straight line, but not necessarily in the same order. Some of them are facing north while some are facing south. Each of them has different number of coins starting from 1 to 8.

Only one person sits to the left of K who has three coins. E sits third to the right of K. C who has seven coins, sits second to the left of E. C is not an immediate neighbour of K. Both the immediate neighbours of D face south. E has the same number of coins as the number of persons sitting to the right of E. F who has one coin sits third to the right of N. Both the immediate neighbours of C face north. L has two more coins than M. The immediate neighbours of K face opposite directions (i.e., if one neighbour faces north then the other faces south and vice versa.). C faces a direction opposite that of E. L is not an immediate neighbour of E. D has only two coins. M has twice the number of coins of the immediate neighbour of N.
