Directions (1 – 5): Study the following information to answer the given question:
Ten persons are sitting in twelve seats in one row, in such a way that there is an equal distance between adjacent persons. The persons are A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, and J. Some of them are facing North and some of them are facing South. Two seats are vacant in the row and they are named as VS1 and VS2, i.e. Vacant seat 1 and Vacant seat 2. All of them have a different vehicle i.e. Cycle, Scooter, Bike, Car, Bus, Truck, Tempo, Tractor, Helicopter and Airplane. But, not necessarily in the same order.
• C sits third to the right of the person who has Cycle
• The person who has Truck sits third to the left of D and is facing the same direction as J
• VS1 is to the immediate right of A who has Cycle
• The person who have Car and Airplane, face the same direction
• The person who has Tempo, sits at one of the extreme ends
• The immediate neighbors of VS2 face the same direction
• F has a Bus and does not face the same direction that his immediate neighbors are facing, i.e. both of his immediate neighbors face the same direction and he faces the opposite direction
• E has an Airplane and sits second to the right of the person who has Tempo
• Neither H nor J has Tempo and they face opposite directions, i.e. if H faces North then J faces South and vice-versa
• Persons sitting at the extreme ends face the same direction
• I has a Car and sits second to the left of D
• D faces North and sits at one of the extreme ends
• The person who has Tractor is immediate neighbor of the persons who have Cycle and the Scooter
• D does not have Tempo
• B is an immediate neighbor of I and faces the opposite direction, i.e. if I faces North then B faces South and vice-versa
• C sits between the person who has Airplane and the person who has Tempo. C does not face the same direction that his immediate neighbors, i.e. both of his immediate neighbors face the same direction and he faces the opposite direction
• F sits between I and D
• H does not have Scooter and faces North
• C does not have Helicopter

Solutions:
• The person who has Tempo, sits at one of the extreme ends 
• Persons sitting at the extreme ends face the same direction 
• D faces North and sits at one of the extreme ends 
• D does not have Tempo 
These statements tell us that the two persons that are sitting at the extreme ends are D and the person who has Tempo and they both face North. But there can be two possibilities. Either  

Or  

• The person who has Truck sits third to the left of D and is facing the same direction as J 
This statement solves the confusion because from the above possibilities, we will choose the figure in which people can sit on the left of D. So, the correct figure is 

• E has an Airplane and sits second to the right of the person who has Tempo 
• I has a Car and sits second to the left of D 
• C sits between the person who has Airplane and the person who has Tempo. C does not face the same direction that his immediate neighbors, i.e. both of his immediate neighbors face the same direction and he faces the opposite direction 
The first statement tells us the sitting position and vehicle of E. The second statement tells us about the position and vehicle of I. The last statement tells us that C sits between E and the person who has Tempo and since the person with Tempo faces North, so E also faces North and thus, C faces South. 

• B is an immediate neighbor of I and faces the opposite direction, i.e. if I faces North then B faces South and vice-versa 
• F sits between I and D 
• The person who have Car and Airplane, face the same direction 
Here, the last statement tells us that I faces North like E. B is either at the right or left of I but F is between I and D so, B is at left of I and F is at right of I. And since I faces North so B faces South. 

• F has a Bus and does not face the same direction that his immediate neighbors are facing, i.e. both of his immediate neighbors face the same direction and he faces the opposite direction 
• Neither H nor J has Tempo and they face opposite directions, i.e. if H faces North then J faces South and vice-versa 
• VS1 is to the immediate right of A who has Cycle 
Here, we come to know that F has Bus and is facing South. Now, since third statement tells that A has Cycle, B, C, D, E, I and F are already seated and the second statements tell that neither H nor J has Tempo. So, only G is left and so G has Tempo.

• C sits third to the right of the person who has Cycle 
• VS1 is to the immediate right of A who has Cycle 
These statements tell that A has Cycle and is sitting third to the left of C and facing South and also, VS1 is between A and E. 

• The person who has Tractor sits between the person who has Cycle and the person who has Scooter 
This tells us that the person who has Tractor is next to A. Since, right of A is Vacant, so the person with Tractor is at A’s left. And next to the person who has Tractor is the person who has Scooter. Since, only one seat is left so it is Vacant. 
• H does not have Scooter and faces North 
So, H has Tractor and is facing North. 

• C does not have Helicopter 
Now, only Helicopter and Bike are left and this statement clears that D has Helicopter and C has Bike. And only J is left to be seated, so J has Scooter. 
• Neither H nor J has Tempo and they face opposite directions, i.e. if H faces North then J faces South and vice-versa 
This tells us that J faces South.
