Directions (Q. 6-10):
Ranjika orders Chappathi and wears Parx dress. The person opposite Ranjika orders Dosa.
Now, the persons wearing Park Avenue and Peter England do not order Appam, Idli, Juice or Chappathi. So, they order Dosa or Pongal. But one who orders Pongal is on the immediate right of the person wearing Park Avenue dress. So, the person wearing Park Avenue dress orders Dosa while the person who orders Pongal wears Peter England dress and is sitting on the right of the person in Park Avenue dress.
Now, the person who orders Pongal is on the immediate left of the person who orders Idli. Clearly, using (vi), the person on the left of the person in Park Avenue dress orders Appam. But he is sitting opposite the person wearing ATB dress. So the person who orders Idli wears ATB dress. Now, the person who orders Appam must be wearing either Blackberry or Arrow. But the person in Blackberry dress does not order Appam. So, he wears Arrow. The person who orders Juice wears Blackberry dress. Ranjita orders Pongal and wears Peter England dress. Rangitha orders Idli and wears ATB dress.
