Direction (1-5):

• Q sits second to the left of L, who sits second from the either ends of the row. Only two persons are sitting between Q and O, who does not sit at the extreme ends of the row. O does not face north.

• N sits second to the right of J, who sits at one of the extreme ends of the row. N and J do not face the same direction.

• Immediate neighbours of N face opposite directions of each other. M sits third to the right of K, who is not an immediate neighbour of O.
• So, Case-1(b) and Case-2(a) will be dropped.

• The persons sitting at the extreme ends facing the same direction. P faces the same direction as N. The immediate neighbours of P face the opposite directions.
• So, Case-2(b) will be dropped.

Directions (6-10):

In the word â€˜ELIGIBLEâ€™, 1st and last letters are vowels. Both are coded as code for the fourth letter of the word.

In the word â€˜HIGHESTâ€™ second letter is a vowel. So we have to use the code â€˜\$â€™ for the second and fourth letters.

In the word â€˜ENDANGERâ€™, 1st letter is a vowel and the last letter is a consonant. So interchange the both codes for the letters.

The word â€˜PREFERABLEâ€™, does not follow any condition so code as it is given.

In the word â€˜GUESTINGâ€™, 2nd letter is a vowel. So we have to use the code â€˜\$â€™ for the second and fourth letters.
