So now Megha cannot be in fifth place because Sona came one place after her, Meera can be on second, third and fourth place. Now if we place Megha at second place, then Sona should be on the third place, Meera is neither last nor first, so the place for her left is fourth but it is given that Richa is in 2 places below Manpreet, so this combination is not true. Now let’s say that Manpreet is on the first position: so Richa will on Third position. So by statement 4, Sona is in place below than Megha so Megha cannot be in second position. So Meera is second and Sona is last where as Megha is in fourth position 1. Manpreet 2. Meera 3. Richa 4. Megha 5. Sona

since manpreet is nt 2nd and richa finishes two places down manpreet so manpreet is first and richa third. megha is one place ahead of sona hence megha is fourth nd sona is fifth. only meera is left who is second. so the order is:

manpreet>meera>richa>megha>sona

Richa was 2 places below Manpreet means there were 2 ppl between richa and manpreet…am i right?

if i am right

then

1 manp

2 megha

3 sona
