Explanation

For Blood Relation:

We have:

  • P sits four places right of H, who is the father of R.
  • Neither P nor H sits at the end of the row.
  • R sits fourth to the right of B, who sits facing south.
  • B neither sits adjacent to H nor sits at the end of the row.

Based on the above given information we have:

Again, we have:

  • H’s wife sits three places left of Q, who neither sits adjacent to R nor sits adjacent to P.
  • At least two persons sit between H and H’s wife.
  • B is a male member.
  • The number of persons sits between H and D is two more than the number of persons sits between Q and B.
  • Q is the son of R’s brother.
  • Q is the only son of D and is an unmarried member of the family.
  • B is married to D.
  • G’s wife sits second to the right of Q and is the daughter of D.
  • P is neither a male member nor married to G.
  • G’s father-in-law sits third to the left of G, who sits facing south.
  • W’s grandfather sits on the immediate right of W.

Since H is the grandfather of W, thus W sits facing south.

  • The persons at the end of the row sit facing in opposite direction to each other.
  • Persons adjacent to B sit facing in opposite direction.
  • P’s daughter and P sit facing in the same direction.

Since R is the only possible daughter of P, thus R is a female and P sits facing north.

Based on the above given information we have the final arrangement as follows:

Case (2) is invalid as G’s wife sits second to the right of Q and is the daughter of D. Case (3) & Case (4) are invalid as the number of person between H and D is two more than the number of persons between Q and B is invalid. Case (5) is invalid as G’s father-in-law sits third to the left of G, who sits facing south.
