Directions (1-5) : P joins in the month which has 31 days.

There are as many persons join before P as after M.

From the above condition, there are three possibilities. R joins three months after Q.

R joins either immediately before or immediately after M.

Case-3 gets eliminated because we have no place for Q. L joins just after N.

O joins the adjacent month of neither Q nor P.

Case-1 and Case-2a gets eliminated Since O joins an adjacent month of neither Q nor P. So Final arrangement becomes, Directions (6-10) :

O ≤ X = V

N > L >  Q = R > T ≥ Z

K ≤ A < C
