#### Explanation

Bharti is born in an odd numbered year after at least one person.

Here we get three possibilities.

Three persons are born between Teenu and Madhu, who is born immediately before Bharti.

The number persons are elder than Charvi is same as the number of persons are younger than Sunil. Sona is elder than Charvi but younger than Mali with an equal number of years between them.

We cannot fix the position of Sona and Mali in case (1). So this case is eliminated.

Sona is not born immediately after Teenu. Hence Case-3 gets eliminated.
