Six persons A, B, C, D, E and F are sitting in two rows, three in each.

E is not at the end of any row.

D is second to the left of F.

C, the neighbour of E, is sitting diagonally opposite D.

B is the neighbour of F.

Which of the following are in the same row ?

** Option:**

**A.**A and E

**B.**E and D

**C.**C and B

**D.**A and B

**E.**C and E

**Answer: A . A and E**

** Justification:**

The given information can be analysed as follows :

E is not at end. So, E must be in the middle of one of two rows.

D is second to the left of F. So, order of the row must be D -- F.

C is neighbour of E and is sitting diagonally opposite to D means C is under F in the other row

i.e. D __ F

__ E C

B is the neighbour of F.

So, the arrangement must be D B F & A E C

Clearly, from amongst the given alternatives, A and E are in the same row. So, the answer is (a).
