Can any one explain this question in detail please.

Chandni said: (Dec 15, 2011)  
It can b because also as nothing is mentioned if a or d is a girl or boy.

Even in answer no 1 you say its 3 or 4 so data is insufficient.

Monisha said: (Dec 23, 2011)  
The answer is wrong because the given hints did not explain whether 'A' and 'D' are boy or girl.

Ajit said: (May 22, 2012)  
In question-2 (a) can also be an answer because it's not mentioned that A and C are boys or girls.

Suman said: (Jun 21, 2012)  
I will agree with manish. The answer is wrong because the given hints did not explain whether 'A' and 'D' are boy or girl.

Anuj said: (Dec 29, 2012)  
@Suman and @Monisha. It is mentioned if u look closely.

A sits with "his" best friend. So he is boy.
Then E is "brother" of C. So ofcourse E is also boy.

AED are sitting together. A and E are boys (proved). In each bench there must be atleast 1 girl. Since A and E are both guys, D must be a girl.

Hope this helps.

As per my meaning "A" would be sure male because in question last line clarify that "A" sits with 'HIS' friend. And in this question asking only possible combination of girls so it should be right answer.

How can he say that A is a boy and D is a girl?

Sanjeev said: (Sep 28, 2014)  
As A is a boy so how can be 3 or 4 girls in question 1. It must be 3.

Karan said: (Jun 18, 2015)  
Its doesn't makes any sense, a best friend can be male or female, A is best friend of Boy E, so the gender of A & D is still doubtful.

Rakesh said: (Jun 18, 2015)  
Gender of G is not clear that's why there are 3 or 4 girls.

I agree with you and Thanks @Anuj.

Krishna said: (Nov 25, 2016)  
I agree with you @Monisha.

Joe said: (Mar 22, 2017)  
@Monisha.

A sits on the bench I with (his) best friends, so A is boy.

So, @Anuj is very right & also @Rakesh is right as its still not clear that G is boy or girl as in 3rd row G can be either boy or girl, so I think that solves problem.

Jeeva said: (Apr 1, 2017)  
You are correct, Thanks @Anuj.

FBA
DE
CG are also possible.

We often observe in classrooms that all the girls sit in row and all the boys sit in row, in this question 2 &3 benches right end is sat by girls who B is second second bench right end, and C is 3rd bench right end, so D is girl sitting in 1st bench right end.
