Directions (1-5):

The one who is 3rd from the left end earns 18K. One person sits between the one who earns 18K and A.

The one who earns 24K is the neighbour of the one who earns 18K. O is 2nd to the right of the one who earns 24K. O is not a neighbour of the one who earns 18K. So we get this,

Q earns 30K and sits one of the ends so Q is at the right end. Q is 2nd to the left of B. So this case gets rejected.

Take Case 2:

The one who earns 24K is the neighbour of the one who earns 18K. O is 2nd to the right of the one who earns 24K. O is not neighbour of the one who earns 18K.

Q earns 30K and sits one of the ends. Q is 2nd to the left of B. So Q is at the left end and B is 3rd from the left end. According to the alphabetical series one letter is between O and the one who is at the right end. So it must be M because Q is already at the left end. N is neighbour of A so N earns 24K. Three people are sitting between O and the one who earns 12K. So, the one who earns 12K is immediate right of Q.

The one who earns 18K his name’s initial is the next letter of the one who earns 15K. So A earns 15K. The one who earns 26K his name’s initial is the next letter of the one who earns 9K. M neither earns 9K nor 26K. So O earns 9K and P earns 26K and sits 2nd from the right end then M earns 36K. The person sitting third to the left of A has an initial of letter K.

Here is the final arrangement:
