  • In one row, J, K, L, M and N are seated and all of them are facing north
  • In second row P, Q, R, S and T are seated and all of them are facing south

  • P faces immediate neighbours of L.
  • M is an immediate neighbour of L.
  • T is not an immediate neighbour of P and faces the one who likes Black.
  • R faces the one who likes White.
  • The one who likes Pink faces north.
  • The one who likes Orange sits to the immediate right of the person who likes Green.
  • Violet sits opposite to the person who sits left of the person who likes Orange.

Since Orange can't sit in right end in figure 2, so that arrangement is wrong.
