Explanations

Direction (1-5)

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

Case 1:

A
18K

Case 2:

A
18K

Take case 1:

A
18K

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

A O
18K 24K

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.

A O Q
18K 24K 30K

Take Case 2:

A
18K

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

A O
18K 24K

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 neighbor 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.

Q B N A O M
30K 12K 18K 24K

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.

Here is the final arrangement:

Q ——– B N A O P M
30K 12K 18K 24K 15K 9K 26K 36K
