Exp.

Step 1:- From the given statements, All the eight members sits around a circular table and some of them face inside and some faces outside. And all people have different medical profession. C, who is a dentist sits third to the right of G. there is only one person between A and G and A is not the immediate neighbour of C, who is facing inside. From this there is two possible cases for G, either faces inside or faces outside.

Step 2: further given that Physician sits second to the right of G. E sits opposite to one who is a Dietician and faces away from the center. E is not an immediate neighbour of A and C. There is only one person sit between G and whose profession is Audiologist. G does not sit immediate right of E. by this  statement case 2 is eliminated.

Step 3: Now we further proceed with case 1. As it is given that  not more than two immediate neighbours faces the same direction. Immediate neighbours of A faces the opposite directions ( opposite direction means if one neighbour faces towards the center then other will face opposite to center and vice-versa). No person sits between the one who is a Nurse and the one who is a Physician. It means E is a Nurse.

Step 4: further given that “The one whose profession is Nurse sits on the immediate right of M. The one whose profession is Chemist sit in between the people whose professions is Nurse and Pharmacist.

N sits opposite to the one who is a Nurse. B’s profession is neither a Psychologist nor sits immediate neighbor of one whose profession is Psychologist. And D is not a Dietician”  by this we get our final solution.
