I believe the answer should be 1.

Arrangement: Fiat, Bedford, Maruti, Ambassador, Fargo, Mercedes, Cadillac

Because given is that "Cadillac is next to right of Fargo" which is F_C and Mercedes should be between them.

Please confirm!

How can you say that Mercedes is to the right of Cadillac while there is no description about the position of Mercedes and if I say it is to the left of Fiat then your answer is also wrong? Justify please.

@Shakti.

Fiat is at one end. Fargo is fourth to the right of Fiat. So Fiat is at the left end. How can you have Merc to the left of Fiat?

This seems incorrect as the question says Cadillac is next to right of Fargo. Thus Mercedes should come in between Fargo and Cadillac.
