Direction (1-5)

Only two persons are sitting to the right of O so O is 3rd from the right end.

 O

N is 27 years old. Two persons are sitting between N and O. Two persons are sitting between M and the one who is 18 years old. M is not neighbor of N. M is not sitting at any end. So M is either immediate right or immediate left of O. As P is 2nd to the right of the one who is 18 years old. M is 21 years old.

 N P M O 18 27 21

O’s age is twice of the S’s age so only one combination is left. S is 18 years old and O is 36 years old. Q is neighbor of S so Q is at the left end. One person is sitting between T and the one who is 36 years old so T is at the right end and R is immediate right of O.

 Q S N P M O R T 18 27 21 36

R is younger to O then R must be 33 years old. P is elder to Q but younger to T. So Q is 42 years old, P is 55 years old and T is 60 years old.

Here is the final arrangement:

 Q S N P M O R T 42 18 27 55 21 36 33 60

T is the eldest person in the group.

Hence, option A.

Two persons are sitting between them.

Hence, option C.

S is 3rd to the left of M.

Hence, option B.

R is 33 years old.

Hence, option D.

Only T is elder to P.

Hence, option B.
