F is second to the left of one whose lucky number is the cubic number but not 1. Two people are sitting between F and J who is third to the right of H. H is immediately right of the one whose lucky number is an even prime number who is not an immediate neighbour of F. G sits exactly between F and H. One person is sitting between the person whose lucky number is 5 and G.
As per the above given conditions, there are four possible cases which are given below in Case(i), Case(ii), Case(iii) and Case(iv).

The person whose lucky number is the multiple of 5 is third to the left of I whose immediate neighbours face opposite directions to each other. The lucky number of E is not an even number. E is immediately right of C and both of them face the same direction. The direction of E is opposite to D.
In Case(iii) and Case(iv), the lucky number of E is 5. But after that C is not possible as per the above given condition. So these cases are eliminated.

The person whose lucky number is 3 is second to the left of C. The person whose lucky number is 3 does not face the center of the table.
In Case(ii), the person whose lucky number is 3 faces the center of the table which is not possible as per the condition. So this case is eliminated.

The difference between the lucky numbers of E and G is one.
(E-G) = 1 or (G-E) = 1.
So the values of G can be either 4 or 6.
The difference between the lucky numbers of G and J is three.
(G-J) = 3 or (J-G) = 3
If the lucky number of G is 4, then the lucky number of J will be either 1 or 7.
If the lucky number of G is 6, then the lucky number of J will be either 9 or 3. But 3 have already been taken by I. So the lucky number of J can be 9.
There are two possible lucky numbers for G which are given below in Case(i)(a) and Case(i)(b).

The lucky numbers of J and C are not a prime number. The sum of the lucky number is J and H is equal to the lucky number of F.
In Case(i)(a), as per the first condition, the lucky number of J will not be 7.
Here J + H = F.
In Case(i)(a) 1+8 = F. So F = 9.
In Case(i)(b) 9+8 = F. So F = 17 which is not possible. So this case is eliminated.

The immediate neighbours of the person whose lucky number is 4 face opposite directions to each other.

Now 6 and 7 are remaining. So the lucky number of C will be 6. Because the lucky number of C should not be a prime number as per the above given condition.

Therefore, we got the final arrangement which is given above.

Hence, option b is the correct answer.

F is second to the left of one whose lucky number is the cubic number but not 1. Two people are sitting between F and J who is third to the right of H. H is immediately right of the one whose lucky number is an even prime number who is not an immediate neighbour of F. G sits exactly between F and H. One person is sitting between the person whose lucky number is 5 and G.
As per the above given conditions, there are four possible cases which are given below in Case(i), Case(ii), Case(iii) and Case(iv).

The person whose lucky number is the multiple of 5 is third to the left of I whose immediate neighbours face opposite directions to each other. The lucky number of E is not an even number. E is immediately right of C and both of them face the same direction. The direction of E is opposite to D.
In Case(iii) and Case(iv), the lucky number of E is 5. But after that C is not possible as per the above given condition. So these cases are eliminated.

The person whose lucky number is 3 is second to the left of C. The person whose lucky number is 3 does not face the center of the table.
In Case(ii), the person whose lucky number is 3 faces the center of the table which is not possible as per the condition. So this case is eliminated.

The difference between the lucky numbers of E and G is one.
(E-G) = 1 or (G-E) = 1.
So the values of G can be either 4 or 6.
The difference between the lucky numbers of G and J is three.
(G-J) = 3 or (J-G) = 3
If the lucky number of G is 4, then the lucky number of J will be either 1 or 7.
If the lucky number of G is 6, then the lucky number of J will be either 9 or 3. But 3 have already been taken by I. So the lucky number of J can be 9.
There are two possible lucky numbers for G which are given below in Case(i)(a) and Case(i)(b).

The lucky numbers of J and C are not a prime number. The sum of the lucky number is J and H is equal to the lucky number of F.
In Case(i)(a), as per the first condition, the lucky number of J will not be 7.
Here J + H = F.
In Case(i)(a) 1+8 = F. So F = 9.
In Case(i)(b) 9+8 = F. So F = 17 which is not possible. So this case is eliminated.

The immediate neighbours of the person whose lucky number is 4 face opposite directions to each other.

Now 6 and 7 are remaining. So the lucky number of C will be 6. Because the lucky number of C should not be a prime number as per the above given condition.

Therefore, we got the final arrangement which is given above.

According to the above arrangement, the direction of only one person G cannot be determined definitely.
Hence, option a is the correct answer.

F is second to the left of one whose lucky number is the cubic number but not 1. Two people are sitting between F and J who is third to the right of H. H is immediately right of the one whose lucky number is an even prime number who is not an immediate neighbour of F. G sits exactly between F and H. One person is sitting between the person whose lucky number is 5 and G.

In Case(iii) and Case(iv), the lucky number of E is 5. But after that C is not possible as per the above given condition. So these cases are eliminated.

The person whose lucky number is 3 is second to the left of C. The person whose lucky number is 3 does not face the center of the table.
In Case(ii), the person whose lucky number is 3 faces the center of the table which is not possible as per the condition. So this case is eliminated.

The difference between the lucky numbers of E and G is one.
(E-G) = 1 or (G-E) = 1.
So the values of G can be either 4 or 6.
The difference between the lucky numbers of G and J is three.
(G-J) = 3 or (J-G) = 3
If the lucky number of G is 4, then the lucky number of J will be either 1 or 7.
If the lucky number of G is 6, then the lucky number of J will be either 9 or 3. But 3 have already been taken by I. So the lucky number of J can be 9.
There are two possible lucky numbers for G which are given below in Case(i)(a) and Case(i)(b).

The lucky numbers of J and C are not a prime number. The sum of the lucky number is J and H is equal to the lucky number of F.

Here J + H = F.
In Case(i)(a) 1+8 = F. So F = 9.
In Case(i)(b) 9+8 = F. So F = 17 which is not possible. So this case is eliminated.

The immediate neighbours of the person whose lucky number is 4 face opposite directions to each other.

Now 6 and 7 are remaining. So the lucky number of C will be 6. Because the lucky number of C should not be a prime number as per the above given condition.

Therefore, we got the final arrangement which is given above.

According to the above arrangement, F has the largest lucky number.
Hence, option d is the correct answer.

F is second to the left of one whose lucky number is the cubic number but not 1. Two people are sitting between F and J who is third to the right of H. H is immediately right of the one whose lucky number is an even prime number who is not an immediate neighbour of F. G sits exactly between F and H.

So the values of G can be either 4 or 6.
The difference between the lucky numbers of G and J is three.
(G-J) = 3 or (J-G) = 3
If the lucky number of G is 4, then the lucky number of J will be either 1 or 7.
