Nine person U, V, T, Z, S, X, W, Y, and E are siting in a row. Some of them are facing North and others are facing South direction. Opposite direction means (If one faces South, second faces North and vice versa). Also their age occurs between 35-65 (means all nine members age is between 35-65, and none of them has same age).

S and T both are immediate neighbours of each other and one of them sits at any extreme end of row and both face same direction with respect to E.
