Show Correct Answers

D. B

Let A sit at position 1 and faces towards the center. D is facing away from the center and is 3rd to the right of A, who is facing towards the center. So, D sits at position 6 and faces away from the center. B and F are neighbors of D. So,
there are two cases possible:
Case 1:
B sits at position 7, F sits at position 5. C and F are neighbors. So, C sits at position 4. G and H are neighbors. G does not sit opposite to D. So, G sits at position 3 and H sits at position 2. Person opposite to G and one of C’s neighbors are facing away from the center. So, G and B face away from the center. E sits at position 4. As only 3 people face away from the center, so E, F, C and H face towards the center. But B and E face in same direction. So, this case is rejected.

Case 2:
B sits at position 5, F sits at position 7. C and F are neighbors. So, C sits at position 8. G and H are neighbors. So, multiple cases are possible,

Case 2.1:
G sits at position 3, H sits at position 2 and E sits at position 4. Person opposite to G and one of C’s neighbors are facing away from the center. So, F face away from the center. G and H do not face in the same direction. So, one of them face away from the center. So, E faces towards the center. The one who is third to the left of E, faces in opposite direction as that of its neighbors who face in same direction. So, this case is rejected.

Case 2.2:
G sits at position 4, H sits at position 3 and E sits at position 2. Person opposite to G faces away from the center and one of C’s neighbors are facing away from the center. So, F faces away from the center. G and H do not face in the same direction. But only 3 people can face away from the center. So, this case is rejected.

Case 2.3:
G sits at position 3, H sits at position 4 and E sits at position 2. Person opposite to G and one of C’s neighbors are facing away from the center. So, F face away from the center. G and H do not face in the same direction. So, one of them face away from the center. So, E faces towards the center. The one who is third to the left of E, faces in opposite direction as that of its neighbors who face in same direction. B and E face in same direction. So, B faces towards the center and H faces away from the center. Red color represents friends, who are facing away from the center and green color represents friends, who are facing towards the center.
