Ten persons are sitting in a parallel row containing five persons in each row. In row-1 M, N, O, P and Q are seated and are facing towards the south direction. Similarly, in row2 U, V, W, X and Y are seated and are facing towards the north direction. Therefore, in the given seating arrangement, each member seated in a row faces another member of the other row. Each of them likes different gemstones viz. Opal, Sapphire, Garnet, Ruby, Coral, Black onyx, Diamond, Blue Topaz, Emerald and Pearl, but not necessarily in the same order.

V doesnâ€™t like Sapphire. Y sits second to the right of X, who likes Emerald. X doesnâ€™t sit at the extreme end. M sits to the immediate left of the person, who faces the person, who sits to the immediate right of the one who is sitting at the extreme left end of the other row. The one who likes Coral sits second to the left of M, who doesnâ€™t like Opal. The one who likes Blue Topaz sits immediate right of the one who faces M. O doesnâ€™t like Sapphire or Pearl. Q sits opposite to the one who sits third to the right of the one who likes Garnet. The one who likes Diamond sits second to the right of Q. U sits opposite to the person, who sits second to the right of N. Immediate neighbor of N likes Opal. W doesnâ€™t like Ruby or Black onyx.
