      Solution

      From 1, 2, 4, 6 From 3, 4, 6 We know that Jaspreet is second to the right of Jaadav, who is an immediate neighbor of John and Jaichand. John sits at 5. Thus, Jaichand can either be seated at 7 or 3. But the person sitting at 7 has purple as the favourite colour. But Jaichand’s favourite colour is green. Thus Jaichand sits at 3 and Jaadav sits at 4. And hence, Jaspreet sits at 2. Also, the ones who like orange and blue sit opposite each other. Thus, Jaiveer likes Orange. Also, The one who likes Red and the one who likes Black are immediate neighbours. The only possibility for red to be sated is at 2 (8 already occupied). Thus, the one who likes pink is seated at 6. Jaichand is not an immediate neighbor of either Jasbir or John but is third to the right of Jignesh. Thus Jignesh sits at 6. The one who likes Orange is an immediate neighbor of Jimal and Jasbir. The exact positions for Jimal and Jasbir are not clear from the given data. Thus, either of them can be seated at 1 and 7
