The name taud is not given in the above mentioned 8 names so the ans is option c.

Question is not clear.

Can anyone explain?

Sangita said: (Aug 26, 2010)

2. H L

3. just in mind

4. _ _ _ P P _ _ _

Hari said: (Sep 7, 2010)  
This answer is wrong. Answer is D. The setting arrangment is t-l-h-m-p-j-r-s.

Mukesh M said: (Sep 10, 2010)  
There can be 2 seating arrangements:

1. J H L M P T R S
2. H L M P J T R S

So wrong statement is C.

What about H L M P J R S T? It is a possible combination.

Janani said: (Sep 22, 2010)  
Please explain me this in detail.

Nikita said: (Sep 22, 2010)  
The possible arrangement is H T L M P _ _ _

R is in 6/7th

Hence from this the only wrong option is the Taud arrangement.

Ashu said: (Sep 22, 2010)  
Anyone one can give detail of this question?

I think whosoever put this question only can answer it.

Ardentgirl said: (Sep 28, 2010)  
We have totally 8 people.

Jack, Harry, Larry, Paul, Mike, Siman, Robert and Taud.

Main condition : Paul occupies one of the 2 middle seats

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 : So 5th or 4th is occupied by him.

So remaining 6 seats are there.

Now lets take larry into consideration.It is said that harry sits to the immediate left of larry and also they have told that there can be atleast one person next to larry(so it means,the clue here is there is one more person to the left of larry after harry).

So now the confusion is what are the seats occupied by the three people.

Lets assume that larry has occupied 3rd seat and so harry will take up 2nd seat and one more person will be there after harry.

This person can be Robert or Taud or jack or Siman.

To select among these options we go for trial and error method using the options A,B,C,D

The first option : Robert is there at the left end.
There is a possibility for this option to be true. So we eliminate it.

The second: Robert is in between Simon and Taud.
This is alos possible
Third: Taud is in between Paul and Jack
This is not possible .

Explanation:

If taud is in between paul and jack then

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
R H L M P T J S ---> this is wrong becos jack and siman cannot be together.

Similarly, _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
S H L M P T J S ----->this is also wrong because as per condition "atleast one person should be there to the right of robert"

So the correct answer is C.

Buvisekar said: (Dec 21, 2010)  
Taud is ot in above mentioned list....so it would be taud...so the option c is correct

Pranathi said: (Dec 29, 2010)  
The arrangement is.

Robert, Harry, Larry, Mike, Paul, Jack, Taud, Siman.

So the ans is C.

Nabila said: (Jan 3, 2011)  
Banupriya's explanation is quite acceptable.

Deepa said: (Jan 5, 2011)  
Please explain me this in detail.

Mohankumar said: (Jan 7, 2011)  
The arrangement should be in:

harry, taud, larry, mike, paul, siman, robert, jack.

The conditions are:

1. Jack is not the neighbour Siman.
2. Harry is just next to the left of Larry.
3. There is at least one to the left of Larry.
4. Paul lives in one of the two houses in the middle.
5. Mike lives in between Paul and Larry.
6. one lives to the right of Robert that is jack.
7. Harry is not between Taud and Larry so taud is between them.


so (c) is incorrct.

Sonu said: (Jan 22, 2011)  
Answer is
j l h m p r s t

Rahul225 said: (Jan 26, 2011)  
JHLMPRTS IT CAN ALSO BE RIGHT

Sanchita Sharma said: (Feb 3, 2011)  
I want to give the right arrangement for this qus. Is : J H L M P S are T.

According to this arrangement A, B, D options are correct so only C is wrong.

Vignesh.M said: (Feb 11, 2011)  
Question is very clear. Easy to solve if represented pictorially.

Sachin said: (Feb 22, 2011)  
S H L M P T R J could also be one possible arrangement...right?

Jyothsna said: (Mar 4, 2011)  
HLMPTJRS

Atul said: (Mar 18, 2011)  
j-h-l-m-p-t-r-s
This is the correct order

Shilpa said: (Mar 28, 2011)  
The order is 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
H S L M P T R J
So option C is correct that Taud is between Paul & Jack.
Here some conditions are there such as Paul Can only be in 4 & 5th house Then there should be atleast one left to larry so larry cannot be at the left most corner & robert also has one right to it so it cant be on the rightmost corner then Mike is inbetween paul & larry & inbetween means exactly in the middle of paul & Larry.
In this sequence all the conditions of the question are satisfied.

Sandeep said: (Apr 1, 2011)  
The question is not specific properly. According to my question is wrong.

Mouni said: (May 15, 2011)  
j h l m p s r t is correct order

Sauya said: (May 16, 2011)  
According to me, the correct order is 'H-L-M-P-J-T-R-S,.

Rajat said: (Jun 10, 2011)  
S H L M P T R J
or
J H L M P T R S
or
S H L M P R T J..

These three holds the situations..just check wid the ques...ans is C...

Ranbir Mukhya said: (Aug 8, 2011)  
My answer is option B.

My sitting arrangement is:

Simon, Harry, Larry, Mike, Paul, Taud, Jack, Robert.

Lets see explanation.

First statement:Jack is not neighour of simon.

This condition satisfy in my sitting arrangement.

Second statement:Harry is just next to the left of Larry.

This condition is also satisfy.

Third condition:There is at least one to the left of Larry.

Their is two person left to the larry.

Forth condition:Paul lives in one of the two houses in the middle.

Middle position is 4th and 5th. Here paul is at fifth position.

Fifth condition:Mike lives in between Paul and Larry.

This condition is also satisfy.

Sixth condition:Robert is not at the left end.

In my sitting arrangement robert is sit on right end.

Seventh condition:Robert is in between Simon and Taud.

This condition is not satisfy.

Eigth condition:Taud is in between Paul and Jack.

This is ture.

Nith condition :There are three persons to the right of Paul.

Jitu said: (Aug 22, 2011)  
Ranbir my friend you are missing the condition that aleast one person is to the right of robert so he can not be at extreme right end. Corect ans is 'c'.

Pallavi Dhyani said: (Aug 31, 2011)  
The order which satisfies all the conditions are:-

jack harry larry mike paul taud robert simon

-- this cleary shows 3rd option is false

Manoj said: (Sep 5, 2011)  
The order is is h-l-r-m-p-j-t-s.

Deeksha said: (Jan 4, 2012)  
There can be two arrangements:.

HLMPJTRS.

JHLMPTRS.

Jitendra said: (Jan 20, 2012)  
Banupriya has given the best solution to understand this problem.

Mahesh said: (Apr 17, 2012)  
According to me the order is
harry taud larry mike paul jack robert simon

Pratap Kesari Ray said: (Jun 9, 2012)  
@Bhanupriya is right from all aspects.

Kishor said: (Sep 3, 2012)  
I think the arrangement should be
H L M P T S R J.....so we can say that
taud is betwn paul & jack...

Qym Riamei said: (Mar 13, 2013)  
Left to right: Jack-Harry-Larry-Mike-Paul-Taud-Robert-Simon.

Nishith said: (Mar 27, 2013)  
Confusion may arise between the correctness of B/C, but B can be true or false depending upon the two arrangements that I have posted. But C can never hold true if we satisfy all conditions given in the question.

Salman said: (May 28, 2013)  
Other possible arrangement is :

Taud Robert larry mike paul jack harry simon

Answer is C only.

Rudra said: (Jun 19, 2013)  
THIS IS ORDER.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
H L M J P T R S

Sunit Prasad said: (Jun 24, 2013)  
JHLMPTRS is the arrangement.
1. J and S are not neighbors, so just assume that they are in the ends J-------S.

2. Harry is just next to the left of Larry so somewhere in between J and S we have HL.

3. There is at least one to the left of Larry. --HL.

4. Paul lives in one of the two houses in the middle. So J--P---S or J---P--S.

5. Mike lives in between Paul and Larry. So HLMP somewhere in the arrangement.

6. at least one lives to the right of Robert and Harry is not between Taud and Larry So, combining all the 6,

J---P--S
JHLMP--S
JHLMPT-S
JHLMPTRS

So the arrangement is,

* * * * * * * *
J H L M P T R S.

Swathi Eswari said: (Jun 27, 2013)  
Jack is not the neighbour Siman S_J_S.

Harry is just next to the left of Larry. H L.

There is at least one to the left of Larry. - - H L.

Paul lives in one of the two houses in the middle. - - - P P - - -.

Mike lives in between Paul and Larry. H L M P P J - S.

If at least one lives to the right of Robert H L M P - J R S.

And Harry is not between Taud and Larry H L M P T J R S.

I got the same answer.

Vijay said: (Jul 29, 2013)  
There are four ways.

S H L M P T R J (OR)

J H L M P T R J (OR)

S H L M P J R J (OR)

J H L M P J R S .

CHECK above conditions.

Taud is not between Paul and Jack.

So the answer is C.

Viju said: (Aug 11, 2013)  
The arrangement is like this.

Jack Robert Simon Taud Paul Mike Larry Harry.

So that condition mentioned will satisfied.

Rohit said: (Aug 16, 2013)  
T -L-H-M-P-J-R-S.

T is not between the P and J thats why the answer is C.

Ghazaala Yasmin said: (Sep 6, 2013)  
THLMPJRS this can be one of the arrangement but the position of J, S and T is not specifed clearly.

Venne said: (Sep 13, 2013)  
J-H-L-M-P-S-R-T.

This is the right order according to the conditions which has been given in the question so that T doesn't come in between Paul and Jack.

Sohil said: (Oct 9, 2013)  
JHLMPTRS.

According to conditions simon is right to harry and Robert and it is also not in between Taud and Larry.

Answer is: C.

SHLMPTRJ.

According to conditions jack is right to harry and Robert and it is also not in between Taud and Larry.

Answer is: B.

So multiple answers are possible.

Alana said: (Dec 24, 2013)  
Harry is just next to the left of Larry.

This condition means harry is in left side of larry. So the arrangement must be like LH.

Why all are writing in the arrangement HL?

Kaveri said: (Dec 26, 2013)  
* There are totally 8 houses. Lets read the details completely first.

* From the 4 th point we come to know that, paul lives either in house 4 or 5. So place him in 4 or 5.

* From 5 th line we come to know that, mike lives in between paul and larry. So we can place larry either in 2nd, 3rd, 6th or 7th depending on the position of paul.

* From 3th line we come to know that, there is at-least one to the left of larry and they can be many and from 2nd line we come to know that the person left to larry is harry. If we consider these points, we cannot place larry in 6 th place and 7th place.

* We have to place larry either in 2nd or 3rd position. As we have placed jack in first position we cannot have larry in 2nd position.

* Hence we place larry in the 3rd position. Now we have jack at 1st place, harry at 2nd place, larry at 3rd place, mike at 4th place and paul at 5th place.

* Now we place siman at 6th, robert at 7th and taud at 8th places respectively.

* The final positions are,

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8.

Jack harry larry mike paul siman robert taud.

Answer is: C.

Vishnu said: (Jan 1, 2014)  
H L M P J R S T.

SO option C is correct.

Azhar said: (Jan 24, 2014)  
We do not need to find J and S position and even it is not clear so the arrangement will be like:

J/S R J/S P M H L T

SO TAUD IS NOT IN BETWEEN JACK AND PAUL.

Twinkle said: (Feb 10, 2014)  
J H L M P T R S , should be the arrangement , fulfilling all the conditions of the clues given in the question , and it is clear from the arrangement , Robert is not at the left end, there are three person to the right of paul, Robert is between simon & taud but taud is not between paul and jack.

Yoman said: (Mar 2, 2014)  
Possible arrangements:

J H L M P T R S
J H L M P S R T
H L M P J R S T
H L M P J T S R
R L M P J H S T and so on..

Suresh Kumar said: (Mar 17, 2014)  
The above is H J L M P S R T.

Hence answer is C.

Rohit M said: (Apr 16, 2014)  
HARRY - LARRY - MIKE - PAUL - TAUD - JACK - ROBERT - SIMAN.

SO ANS IS C.

Manasa said: (May 11, 2014)  
There are two possible ways:

HLMPSRTJ.

HLMPTJRS(option C).

Sai Bharadwaj said: (May 14, 2014)  
If I say,

J R S P M H L T ...

Is there any violation?

Karan said: (May 17, 2014)  
Jack Harry Larry Mike Paul Taud Robert Simon.

So Answer : C.

Shung said: (Jun 30, 2014)  
The correct answer is SHLMPRJT.

Clearly from the conclusion. Read the conclusion and judge. There can be only 3 person right to paul. So simon can't be after taud.

Vishnu Venugopal said: (Jul 3, 2014)  
They are living in the order of Jack Harry Larry Mike Paul Taud Robert Simon.

So the condition A B & D satisfies so the answer is C.

Shailesh Chaubey said: (Jul 20, 2014)  
According to given condition seating arrangement is as:
Jack-Harry-Larry-Mike-Paul-Simon-Robert-Taud

So answer is C only.

Vardhan Mendu said: (Jul 22, 2014)  
Guys there wont be exact seating with the given information but we can fix the positions of few members i.e H,L,M,P basing on this we have to check the given options, whether they are satisfying the condition or not. Basing on that,

From Option 1: Robert is not at the left end.

Explanation: Though we can place him at left end but we have to see whether there are alternatives or not by satisfying the condition. In this the arrangement would be J H L M P R T S.

From Option 2: R is between S and T.

Explanation: In this we can check the probability by satisfying the condition. The arrangement would be J H L M P S R T.

From Option 3: T is B/W P and J.

Explanation: with this the arrangement has to be S H L M P T J R which is not possible because there should be at least one to the right of J. So this statement is wrong. Hence the answer is C.

With the option 4: It is satisfying J H L M P R T S.

Hope this explanation clears your doubts.

Ramana Reddy said: (Aug 25, 2014)  
Jack harry larry mike paul tady robert simon.

This is the order here questions is clear after you arrange all this go through the choices then correct your arrangements its little bit difficult.

Sudhir said: (Nov 7, 2014)  
Siman Robert Taud Jack Paul Mike Harry Larry.

From this arrangement we can say that option C is incorrect.

Desk said: (Nov 11, 2014)  
Answer can be B as well as C.

The person who has asked this question please kindly explain with pictorial representation or better representation of step by step points.

Vikram said: (Nov 13, 2014)  
In above comments arrangement is.

JHLMPTRS.

I think, it is correct arrangement but this is according to options but in exam we can not predict according to option. So I think not sufficient data.

Pallavi said: (Dec 13, 2014)  
J H L M P T R S are in line. So option C is correct.

Pavithra S said: (Jan 21, 2015)  
My answer is "C".

According to me my seating arrangement in Simon, Robert, Harry, Taud, Larry, Mike, Paul, Jack.

Ajay said: (May 16, 2015)  
How about HLMPTJTRS? Is it also a possibility?

Mahesh said: (May 23, 2015)  
Can you explain briefly @Pavithra?

Rohitashwa said: (Jun 18, 2015)  
Right arrengement.

T, R, J, P, M, L, H, S.

Kingkong said: (Jul 7, 2015)  
H, J, L, M, P, S, R, T.

Harry is two places left from Larry (Harry is just next to the left of Larry).

Rajdeep Biswas said: (Jul 13, 2015)  
I think R, H, J, L, M, P, S, T.

Kashyap said: (Jul 15, 2015)  
Correct pattern is: S-H-L-M-P-R-J-T.

Because, given that at least one to the left of L and at least one to the right of R.

So, more than one to the left of L and more than one to the right of R.

Answer is C.

Monika Bajaj said: (Jul 30, 2015)  
Correct arrangement is Jack-Herry-Lerry-Mike-Paul-Taud-Robert-Siman.

So the correct answer is C.

Likhitha said: (Jul 31, 2015)  
Actually the question is not clear. Harry and laud both the names are not given.

Ramya said: (Aug 9, 2015)  
Answer is correct the correct arrangement is H-L-M-J/S-P-S/J-T-R.

Saurabh said: (Aug 15, 2015)  
Adding to what @Bhanupriya explained HLMPJRST AND HLMPSRJT are possible so in any condition option 4 can't be a correct statement to make thus, option 4 is the answer.

Nitin Singh said: (Aug 25, 2015)  
Answer is d because there always 4 people right to P.

Possible combinations according to question are:

1. HHLMPTJRS.

2. HLMPTSRJ.

3. HLMPJTRS.

4. HLMPJSRT.

5. HLMPSTRJ.

6. HLMPSJRT.

So only option incorrect is D.

Koushik Gorai said: (Sep 2, 2015)  
There is a confusion between the statement 2 and statement 5. If harry lives just next to left of Larry then how mike comes in between Paul and Larry. These statements are unclear.

Harshi said: (Sep 2, 2015)  
Sitting arrangement is as ;

Harry : Larry : Mike : Paul : Taud : Jack : Robert : Simon.

Nitesh said: (Sep 7, 2015)  
Siting arrangement is J. L. H. M. P. T. R. S.

Parminder Chouhan said: (Sep 10, 2015)  
THLMPJRS can also be correct according to the C option.

Sherif said: (Sep 10, 2015)  
Answer is option A.

Check with this order RHLMPJTS.

Komal said: (Sep 13, 2015)  
Is this arrangement also correct?

J R H T L M P S.

Rohini said: (Sep 13, 2015)  
The seating arrangement is as follows:

Simon Robert Taud Jack Paul Mike Harry Larry.

So the option C is correct.

Debasis said: (Sep 17, 2015)  
J H L M P S R T also possible.

Asha said: (Sep 18, 2015)  
THLMPJRS C is correct option.

Dev said: (Sep 25, 2015)  
S R J P M H L T.

It's also possible.

According to this correct answer is C.

Mazha said: (Sep 25, 2015)  
Its not possible to get a complete solution for this question as the puzzle is incomplete, all we can do is assumptions, and here if you try to place Taud between Paul and jack it contradicts the 1st statement. So its the only option we can prove wrong where as others still got a possibility.

Urvashi said: (Sep 29, 2015)  
See, you all, @Ardentgirl can be right but there is much confusion about the seats of Robert, Taud, Jack and Simon.

Mayank said: (Oct 7, 2015)  
Correct combination: S R T P M L J H.

Divya said: (Dec 28, 2015)  
I think correct combination is H, J, L, M, P, S, R, T.

Happy said: (Feb 17, 2016)  
The question gives more than one correct arrangement. So the options given are ambiguous.

Avishek said: (Mar 1, 2016)  
H L M P J T R S also possible so answer B also correct.

Global Baba said: (Apr 14, 2016)  
There are many combinations :

1) J H L M P T R S
2) H L M P J T R S
3) H L M P T J R S
4) H L M P S T R J ----> Satisfy the (iii) option.
5) H L M P T S R J ----> Satisfy the (iii) option.

So finally some data are missing , means : DATA INADEQUATE:

Vignesh said: (Apr 23, 2016)  
J H L M P R T S

So, the answer is option B.

Roma Asnani said: (May 21, 2016)  
Harry, Larry, Mike, Paul, Jack, Taud, Robert, and Simran.

Points are given as;

1. Jack and Simran, not a neighbor.
2. Larry has at least one left to Larry so it is in left.
3. Mike lives in between Paul and Larry and also in the middle houses..
4. If at least one lives to the right of Robert which is Simran then obvious Taud and Larry are not in between..

So, as per the statement Taud is in between Paul and Jack.

The correct sequence is S, R, J, P, M, L, T, H.

Therefore, option C is correct.

Sanjib said: (Jun 12, 2016)  
According to me, D is the correct answer.

There are three persons to the right of Paul.
They are different arrangement is available.

Dhananjay said: (Jul 4, 2016)  
The correct order is H T L M P J R S.

Jayanth said: (Jul 16, 2016)  
As per my logic, the order should be H-J-L-M-P-T-R-S.

Harish said: (Aug 3, 2016)  
HLTMPJRS. So "c" is correct.

Javeed Basha Syed said: (Aug 8, 2016)  
At least "ONE" means at a minimum one one, there can be more than one so condition number 3 and 6 must be changed and the word at least one must be replaced with ONE to get the answer.

Other wise there are too many possible answers as @ Global baba mentioned.

Still, this gives many possible arrangements but satisfies the answer as "C".

X Kaliya said: (Aug 18, 2016)  
There can be 2 seating arrangements.

1. J H L M P T R S.

2. H L M P J T R S.

So, the wrong statement is C.

Ashish said: (Aug 19, 2016)  
HLMPTSRJ.

HLMPTJRS.

Both can be true but by 1st answer will satisfy, you can check all answer in both answers.

Ashish said: (Aug 19, 2016)  
Possible combinations according to the question are:.

1. HHLMPTJRS.
2. HLMPTSRJ.
3. HLMPJTRS.
4. HLMPJSRT.
5. HLMPSTRJ.
6. HLMPSJRT.

But all answers cannot be true or more than one answer can't be true so WE WILL SEE THAT HLMPTSRJ have only one answer true.

Gautham said: (Aug 26, 2016)

Robert, Harry, Larry, Mike, Paul, Jack, Taud, Simen.

Ashutosh said: (Aug 31, 2016)

Taud is not in b/w P & J, so C is the correct option.

Amit Choudhary said: (Dec 12, 2016)  
Option C is the right answer.

The actual sating arrangement is JHLMPTRS.

Tdw said: (Dec 21, 2016)  
I want to clarify some of these conditions, because it seems like they're being interpreted differently by everyone.

2. Harry is just next to the left of Larry.

Does this mean Harry is to Larry's immediate left or two to Larry's left?

3. There is at least one to the left of Larry.

Does this mean Larry is not in the far left position? How is this condition any different from condition #2?

4. Mike lives in between Paul and Larry.

Does this mean Mike's immediate neighbors are Paul and Larry, or does this mean Mike is just somewhere between Paul and Larry?

Shankar said: (Dec 21, 2016)  
Option C is the correct answer if and only if "between" is interpreted such that X is between Y and Z if Y and Z are the immediate neighbors of X.

E.g. In configuration JHLMPTRS, M is between L and P, but M is not between L and T.

Were "between" interpreted in the looser sense, where X is between Y and Z if Y is anywhere on one side of X and Z is anywhere on the other side, then there are 3 possible combinations that would satisfy the 7 initial conditions as well as condition C.

* HSLMPRTJ
* HSLMPTRJ
* HRLMPSTJ

Mahendra Kumar said: (Dec 21, 2016)  
C is correct HLMPJTRS.

Saronyo said: (Jan 4, 2017)  
For ROBERT, JACK, TAUD and SIMAN there are 3 combinations possible. RJTS, TJRS, JTRS. So the answer is not clear.

Damotharan K G said: (Mar 23, 2017)  
H L M P T S R J is the correct arrangement.

Arati said: (Jun 15, 2017)  
There are several seating arrangements possible. But the answer. For the question is C only. Bcz, if Taud is coming in between Paul and Jack, either Robert should be at the right end or Jack should be near to Simon. Those are not possible.

_HLMP_ _ _are fixed positions.

If, _HLMPTJ_.

RHLMPTJS (J and S together not possible).
Or,
SHLMPTJR (at least one should be right to R- so this combination also not possible).

All other answers A, B and D are not strictly incorrect. They are possible options.

Tomas said: (Jun 19, 2017)

Karan Bajaj said: (Aug 27, 2017)  
Based on the Question given it can be stated that it is not clear in which position can J, S be either 1st Or 3rd but what can be Drafted is J R S P M H L T or S R J P M H L T ( can be Confirmed) and when checking with the options a, b, c, d.

A is absolutely correct, B cannot be stated whether correct or Incorrect, D is correct, but C is absolutely incorrect because Taud is at the end and they want us to find which is not correct that is Option C.

Mahesh said: (Sep 1, 2017)  
Harry-larry-mike-paul-taud-jack-robert-siman.

This is the arrangement of above question.

Moortu said: (Sep 9, 2017)

This can be:

Shreebatsh Bhoi said: (Sep 24, 2017)  
H L M P J T R S is correct answer.

Sandhya Peddi said: (Sep 28, 2017)  
@ALL.

Here we have to consider both question and options. Let's check it step-by-step.

There are 8 people:
Jack, Siman, Harry, Larry, Paul, Mike, Robert and Taud.

1. Jack is not the neighbor Siman.
Jack will not be left or right of Siman.
2. Harry is just next to the left of Larry.
HL
3. There is at least one to the left of Larry.
Means one or more persons be left of Larry.
4. Paul lives in one of the two houses in the middle.
Paul will be in either 4th house or 5th house.
5. Mike lives between Paul and Larry.
LMP
As Harry is next to the left of Larry, we can make it as HLMP.
If at least one lives to the right of Robert.
Means one or more persons be right of Robert.
Harry is not between Taud and Larry.
Please keep it in mind.

Now the possible arrangements are:
(i) HLMPJTRS
(ii) HLMPTJRS
(iii) JHLMPTRS
(iv) JHLMPSRT
(v) JHLMPRST
(vi) SHLMPRJT
(vii) SHLMPRTJ

Let's check these possible arrangements with options.

[A]. Robert is not at the left end.
Each and every arrangement looks good with this option.

[B]. Robert is in between Siman and Taud.
Only (i), (iii) and (iv) is possible with this option.

[C]. Taud is in between Paul and Jack.
In the selected three arrangements no one satisfies this option.

[D]. There are three persons to the right of Paul.
Only (iii) and (iv) is possible with this option.

By this, the arrangement may be (iii) JHLMPTRS or (iv) JHLMPSRT.
Option [C]. does not satisfy by these arrangements, so the incorrect statement is [C].

So, Answer is [C]. Taud is in between Paul and Jack.

Nikita said: (Oct 12, 2017)  
The possible order can be HLMPTJRS.

It is not necessary for L to have more than one because its written atleast.

Nikita said: (Oct 14, 2017)  
@Sandhya Peddi.

For arrangment (ii) of ur solution how (ii) &(v) is not satisfied.
Harry is next to lary and Mike lives between Paul and Larry.
So why not this arrangement is possible?

Mathews said: (Oct 26, 2017)  
The trick here is to assemble the line of names in such a way that all of the conditions are satisfied. As I did that, I found more than 1 answers correct, so I changed the pattern by complying to the conditions and at the same time, trying to get a single option as the correct answer.

I got it as : H L M T P J R S.

I think many correct patterns are possible and readjusting gives a final single solution and that would be option C.

Avesh Sharma said: (Nov 11, 2017)

Shubham said: (Feb 1, 2018)  
This can be arranged in many ways:
According to the conditions given just keep in mind 3 things
1. HLMP are together and P is either of the centres.
2.J and S are not neighbours.
3. R is not at the right end.

In each of the arrangements, you will see T is not in between P and J.
RHLMPJTS or RHLMPSTJ or RHLMPJTS.
JHLMPRST or JHLMPSRT.
SHLMPRTJ or SHLMTRJ.

Krishnapani said: (Jun 7, 2018)  
The right order is SHLMPTJR.

Sriram said: (Jun 13, 2018)  
HLTMPJRS is the correct order.

Sumit Sharma said: (Jul 24, 2018)  
The correct arrangement according to question will be:
RHLMPJTS.

It satisfies all conditions given.
1. At least on person to the right of R.
2. J is not neighbour of S.
3. P is in one of the middle houses.
4. H is to the immediate left of L.
5. M is the neighbour of L and P.
6. At least on is to the left of L.
7. H IS NOT BETWEEN L AND T.

So, answer is A. (Bcz R is to the left end of Row)

Total 8 people.

Jack Simran Harry Larry Paul Mike Taud Robert.

The sequence is (HLMTPJRS) because it satisfies:

i. Jack is not the neighbour of simran.
ii. Harry is juzt next to the left of larry.
iii. There is at least one to the left of larry.
iv. Paul lives in one of the two houses in the middle.

One live to the right of robert and harry is not in between taud and larry.

B. Robert is in between Simon and Taud (also true).
