Jan (31)    
Feb(28) B Red
March(31)

June(30)    
July(31)    
August(31)    
September(30)

Dec(31)    

 

Three persons were born between B and E. E likes Brown and was born in a month which was having 31 days. The one who likes Yellow was born in July. So E can be born in August, October.

Case 1: If E was born in August:

Month Person Color
Jan (31)    
Feb(28) B Red
March(31)    
April(30)    
May(31)    
June(30)    
July(31)   Yellow
August(31) E Brown
September(30)    
Oct(31)    
Nov(30)    
Dec(31)    

Only two persons were born before F. F was born in a month which was having 30 days. So F either born in April or June. D was born after F but before E. There is a 2 months gap between F and D. So F was born in April and D was born in July but we know that D and E were not born in consecutive months so this case gets rejected.

 

Case 2: If E was born in October:

Month Person Color
Jan (31)    
Feb(28) B Red
March(31)    
April(30)    
May(31)    
June(30)    
July(31)   Yellow
August(31)    
September(30)    
Oct(31) E Brown
Nov(30)    
Dec(31)    

G was born after E in a month which was having 31 days. So G was born in December. The number of person was born after G is same as before C who likes Black so C was born in January.

 

 

Month Person Color
Jan (31) C Black
Feb(28) B Red
March(31)    
April(30)    
May(31)    
June(30)    
July(31)   Yellow
August(31)    
September(30)    
Oct(31) E Brown
Nov(30)    
Dec(31) G  

Only two persons were born before F. F was born in a month which was having 30 days. So F either born in April or June. D was born after F but before E. There is a 2 months gap between F and D. So F was born in April and D was born in July. So only B and C were born before F. The number of person was born between F and D is same as D and G. No one was born in June. So only one person was born between F and D and A likes Pink and born after F. So A was born in May because only one person was born between D and G and he is E. So there was total 7 people. The one who likes Blue is born before the one who likes Green so F likes Blue and G likes Green.

 

Here is the final table:

Month Person Color
Jan (31) C Black
Feb(28) B Red
March(31)    
April(30) F Blue
May(31) A Pink
June(30)    
July(31) D Yellow
August(31)
