How them take 'D' is a girl?
(1)

How can we say that B is girl?

In the question if it is said thad that atleast 1 boy sits on each bench then G would be a boy. Since nothing like this is mentioned it cannot be determined that G is a boy or girl. Also no his or her term is mentioned with G in any sentence of the question.

A sits on the bench I with 'his' best friends. E is the 'brother' of C. This means A & E are boys so by default D is a girl because atleast one girl sits on each bench.

Where it is mentioned that 'd' is a girl and 'a' is a boy.
