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.

Option B is correct (3 girls).

On each bench, at least one girl is there A is stated to be a boy and E is said to be sitting with "his" best friends making E a 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.

A sits on the bench I with his best friends acc to question they say A sits with HIS best friend his means A is a male member obvious.

There should only be 3 female. It is mentioned that there should be at least 1 girl in a bench and it says a sits with 'his' best friends, i.e., E and D, E is said to be brother of C. Therefore D is the possible female.
