    Explanation
    :
    Ravi sits at the left corner of the north facing row. If we give numbers to positions starting from left to right as 1, 2..5 then Ravi is at 1. Ravi is a student Davis sits at the center in the south facing row. Vineet sits opposite to the neighbor of Umesh. Vineet is facing south. Vineet and Umesh does not sit at the end. Hence Umesh is at 3 in the north facing row. Ruchi sits opposite to the person who is next to Arul. Ruchi is facing north. Ruchi is a teacher. No one is sitting to the right of Arul. Based on this, Arul is opposite Ravi and Ruchi is at 2 (next to Ravi). Amit is a student. Hence Amit is next to Arul and James is at the corner of the south facing row. Pradeep is a teacher hence Pradeep is at 4 and Vikalp is at 5 (corner of north facing row). Hence Vikalp is sitting opposite James
