Explanation

We have:

• R sits second to theleft of one who likes Banana, who sits at smaller side of table, that means we have two possible places for R.
• One who likes Banana sits exactly opposite to S and sits facing in opposite direction of S. P, who neither likes Mango nor sits immediate neighbor of C, sits second to theright of S.

Based on theabove given information, we have:

Again, we have:

• One who likes Papaya sits at corner, sits third to the left of the one who likes Guava, who sits together with R at same side,
• B who likes Orange sits third to right of C and is neither sits adjacent to one who likes Banana nor immediate neighbor of one who likes Guava, which means in case Person on each longer side sits facing in opposite direction to each other.
• T who likes Papaya sits third to the left of one who likes Mango, Person diagonally opposite at corner sits facing in opposite direction to each other and E sits immediate right of Q. E neither likes Banana nor he sits immediate neighbor of one who likes Guava, that means we have four different possibilities, Based on the above given information, we have:

Again, we have:

• R faces the same direction as the one who likes litchi.
• E sits exactly between one who likes Litchi and A. One who likes Litchi sits facing center but not immediate neighbor of Q, case (2a) is not valid and case (2b) is also not valid as R faces outward.

Based on theabove given information we have:

Incase 2a and case 2b,R faces the same direction as the one who likes litchi.One who likes Litchi sits facing center but not immediate neighbor of Q, this condition is not satisfied, so rejected.

Finally, we have:

• One who likes Watermelon sits immediate left of the one who likes Grapes.
• R doesn’t like Grapes.
• D likes Cherry sits third to the left of the one who likes Apple, that means case (1a) is not valid as no such place available for D
• Based on theabove given information final arrangement as follow:

Inc case 1a, D likes Cherry sits third to the left of one who likes Apple, this condition is not satisfied, so rejected.
