(f) The person from Business who is not D is adjacent to A and opposite E, who faces north.

(g) C sits to the right of the person from Army.
Important for :
1
H is from which field?
» Explain it
C
The following common explanation, we get "Agriculture".

H is from the field of Agriculture.

Hence, option C is correct.

Final arrangement:

 Case 1 When G faces North South Facing Field Business Banking Navy Teaching Person F A B D North facing Person Medicine G H C Field E Army Agriculture Software

Reference:

(b) The person from Banking and G are opposite each other. H is not from Banking.

(d) Only one person sits to the left of G.

(e) H who is not from Medicine is the neighbour of the persons from Army and Software.

(g) C sits to the right of the person from Army.

Inference:

Following two are the possible cases in which the above hints can be used.

 Case 1 When G faces North South facing Field Banking Person H North facing Person G H C Field Army Medicine Software

 Case 2 When G faces South South facing Field C H G Person Software Medicine Army North facing Person H Field Banking

Reference:

(a) B and the person from Teaching are adjacent to each other and one among them sits at one of the ends.

(c) Either C or the person from Navy sits at one of the ends and both sit in the different rows.

Inference:

Here we can see that in both the cases , C is siting at an extreme end and only one out of C and the one who works in Navy sits at  one of the extreme ends.

Thus the one related to Navy will sit in the middle of the row where people are facing south because his/her row is different from that of C.

As we can see that there are no two adjacent vacant seats in the row facing North, thus B and the person from teaching will sit in the other row in case 1 and vice versa in case 2.

 Case 1 When G faces North South facing Field Banking Navy Teaching Person H B North facing Person G H C Field Army Medicine Software

 Case 2 When G faces South South facing Field C H G Person Software Medicine Army North facing Person B H Field Teaching Navy Banking

 Case 1A When G faces North South facing Field Teaching Banking Navy Person H B North facing Person G H C Field Army Medicine Software

 Case 2A When G faces South South facing Field C H G Person Software Medicine Army North facing Person H B Field Navy Banking Teaching

Reference:
