Read the below passage carefully and answer the questions:

At a small company, parking spaces are reserved for the top executives: CEO, president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer with the spaces lined up in that order. The parking lot guard can tell at a glance if the cars are parked correctly by looking at the color of the cars. The cars are yellow, green, purple, red, and blue, and the executives names are Alice, Bert, Cheryl, David, and Enid.

* The car in the first space is red.
* A blue car is parked between the red car and the green car.
* The car in the last space is purple.
* The secretary drives a yellow car.
* Alice's car is parked next to David's.
* Enid drives a green car.
* Bert's car is parked between Cheryl's and Enid's.
* David's car is parked in the last space.

What color is the vice president's car?
green
yellow
blue
purple
red
Explanation:
The vice president's car cannot be red, because that is the CEO's car, which is in the first space. Nor can it be purple, because that is the treasurer's car, which is in the last space, or yellow, because that is the secretary's. The president's car must be blue, because it is parked between a red car (in the first space) and a green car, which must be the vice president's.

Car Arrangements:

_ _ _ _ _ there are five spaces for five cars;

1) Red car is in the first space
So, Red _ _ _ _.
2) A blue car is parked between the red car and green car.
Red is already placed in first place so the blue car must be the next and green car must be the next one.
So, Red, Blue, Green, _ , _.

3) The people one is in the last space.
So, Red, Blue, Green, _ , Purple.

4) The balance colour is yellow at the same time we also have only one position left
So, Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Purple.

Executive name arrangements:
_,_,_,_,_.

1) Easy clue is David's car is parked in the last space
So _,_,_,_, David.

2) Alice car is parked next To David.
We have only one position left next to David.
So we fill up the 4th position _,_,_, Alice, David.

3) Bert's car is parked between Cheryl and Enid.
We have only 3 positions so the middle person must be Bert's
So we fill up the 2nd position _, Bert , _, Alice, David.

Next we have two options to fill the names.
It can be Cheryl, Bert, Enid, Alice, David
Or it can be Enid, Bert,Cheryl, Alice, David.

4) Enid drives a green car.
The green car is in the position of 3 by Enid.
So, we fill up the 3rd position.

Cheryl, Bert, Enid, Alice, David.

The final assumption of the answer is;

Red,Blue,Green,Yellow, Purple
Cheryl, Bert, Enid, Alice, David.

The car in the first space is red.

* A blue car is parked between the red car and the green car.
* The car in the last space is purple.
* The secretary drives a yellow car.
* Alice's car is parked next to David's.
* Enid drives a green car.
* Bert's car is parked between Cheryl's and Enid's.
* David's car is parked in the last space.

Enid drives a green car and Enid is a treasurer, So the answer is not green.

This instruction is little bit confusing,

Alice's car is parked next to David's.

Here if you take as, Alice's car is parked before David's. Then will be easy.
