Explanation:

Directions (Q. 1 -5)
When eight persons are sitting round a table, there are three persons sitting between those who are opposite each other. Thus, from (v), B and H are opposite each other. With this and (iii) and (iv), we get the following arrangement:
From (vi) and (vii), F must be between A and C. from (vii), C is on the right of F. so A must be on the left of F. now AFC are together. So the single seat between E and D must be occupied by the remaining person, ie. G. thus the final arrangement:
1).
2).
3). BA is the correct pair.
4).When each person thus interchanges his position, the entire arrangement will have moved half a table. But there will be no difference in relative position.
