Instructions

Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below :

Ten persons are sitting in two parallel rows containing five persons each, in such a way that there is equal distance between adjacent persons. In row 1 — B, C, D, E and F are seated (not necessarily in the same order) and all of them are facing south. In row 2 — R, S, T, U and V are seated (not necessarily in the same order) and all of them are facing north. Therefore, in the given seating arrangement, each member seated in a row faces another member of the other row. R sits second to the right of U. The person facing R sits to the immediate left of D. Only one person sits between D and E. E does not sit at an extreme end of the line. The person facing E is an immediate neighbour of T. S sits third to the left of T. F is not an immediate neighbour of D. B does not face U.
