Eight friends M, N, O, P, U, V, W and X are sitting in two circles in such a manner that each member of the inner circle sits exactly opposite the member of the outer circle. The members sitting in the outer circle are U, V, W and X and all of them are facing towards the centre while the members of the inner circle are M, N, O and P and they are facing away from the centre. Each of them likes a different colour, viz Red, Yellow, Blue, Green, White, Black, Orange and Purple, but-not necessarily in the same order.

P likes neither Yellow nor White and faces W, who likes neither Black nor Purple. The person who likes Orange faces the person who likes Red. M, who likes Green, faces the immediate neighbour of the person who likes Blue.

W sits second to the left of X. The persons who like White and Red are in separate circles. The person who likes Black sits on the immediate left of X. V, who does not like Blue, does not face M.

The persons who likes Black and Purple are immediate neighbours, and one of them faces N, who likes Yellow. The persons who like Orange and Green sit in the same circle but they are not immediate neighbours.
