five chairs are arranged in such a way that
the distance between each two chairs is equal. archi(A),teri(T),mikel(M),neitan(N) and john(J) got sitted on this chair. data: A#. T is estranged from J and M equally. B#. N and A are on the same side from T. which of the following arguments are necessarily true ? 1.A sits close to N 2.M sits close to N 3.A and M sits close to N 4.J and A sits close to N when i tried to solve it i encountered a problem with this data from argument A# i get that T is in the center and that J and M are on the same distance from the center which lives me only one free space on each side but in argument B# we have two other people from one side. which crosses with argument A# where is my mistake?

From A, is it possible T is in seat #2, with J & M in #1 & #3?
I.e.: J,T,M,, or M,T,J,, And similarly, T could be in seat #4?
