I think option D is correct.

Where G, A, D could be girls or boys. Because they didn't mention A and G, D girl, or boy.

The correct arrangement is.

1. AED.

2. FB.

3. CG.

It is clearly mentioned that " F" only sits with " B". And gender of " G" Haven't been mentioned so it can be a male or female.

Table 1 = A,D

Table 2 = FBE

Table 3 = C and G.

In this arrangement, we can say in 1 st Q the answer is 3 or 4 as we can't determine that G is a girl or not.

Table 2 = FBE

Table 3 = C and G.

In this arrangement, we can say in 1 st Q the answer is 3 or 4 as we can't determine that G is a girl or not.
