in the same order). Some of them are facing south while some are facing north. (Note: Facing the same direction means, if one is facing north then the other is also facing north and vice versa. Facing the opposite directions means if one is facing north then the other is facing south and vice versa.) Each one likes a different fruit, viz. banana, sapodilla, orange, apple, guava, grapes, pineapple and litchi.
R is seated second to the right of P. V faces the same direction as P and T faces the same direction as R. The person who likes sapodilla is facing south at one of the extreme ends. Q likes banana and is seated between the persons who like apple and guava. Both the immediate neighbours of R face the same direction. Both the immediate neighbours of T face the opposite directions. S likes grapes and seated between R and T. P does not like guava. P sits third to the left of S who is facing north. P is not the neighbor of W.
