five chairs are arranged in such a way that(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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?
