Atul is third to the left of Vipul who sits fourth from one of the extreme ends of the row. Sanju sits at one of the extreme end of the row.

There are five persons between Sanju and Tinu. Lalu is sitting exactly between Sanju and Tinu. Two persons sits between Tinu and Jai. Atul does not sit at one of the extreme ends of the row. There are as many persons between Atul and Sapan as many are sitting between Tinu and Atul.

So the case 1 gets rejected as Atul is sitting at the extreme left end of the row.

There are as many people to the right of Jai as there are to the left of Jai.

There are nine persons to the left of Jai and seven persons to the right of Jai, so we can add two more persons to the right of him, only we can add two persons in between Jai and Atul to make equal persons to the left and right of Jai. Thus the final arrangement is as follows-

The one who likes green color sits at extreme left end. There are 3 person sitting between the one who likes orange and green colour. Only 2 person sit between the one who likes orange colour and F.  The one who likes orange colour sits to the right of F. One who likes green color sits to the left of F, who does not like blue colour. Only one person sit between I and the one who likes orange colour.

There are same number of person sit between H and the one who likes orange colour and the one who likes orange colour and the one who like green colour. I sits immediate right to the one who likes blue colour. IN case 1, I sits on the immediate right of F and F does not like blue colour it is given, so this case is invalid, we will continue with the other case 2.

There is only one person sitting between K and H. H likes purple colour and sits to the right of I. More than 4 person sit between K and the one who likes orange color. Five persons are sitting between K and the one who likes orange colour.

Not more than 2 person sit between E and H. E is not an immediate neighbour of H but is sitting on the left of I. The one who sits on the second right of H likes red colour. So K likes red colour.  Thus the final arrangement –
