How statement II gives the answer A, C, B, E, D. Please explain?

IN both statment relation of b is not given?
Then how is the sequence ACBED?

In statement two C_E (1).

C_E_ (2) Because E is not at ends.

E is third to right of A. AC_E_.

D is at one of the ends AC_ED. Now B is in middle.

D is at one of the ends, so it can be at left end please justify someone.

But in statement II it has been given that 'D' is at one of the ends.

If it would be at the other end then?

Prikshat said: (Aug 26, 2016)  
If D is at another end then E would be at the end which is not possible due to statement 2.

C is second to the left of E.(C_E),and E is not at any of ends.

Who is third to the right of A.means AC_E.and D is at one of the ends.it already mentioned earlier that E is not at any of the ends.so D puts at the end after E. It means AC_ED.and at middle remained puts.means ACBED.
