3 students take 3 adjacent desks. sit them on one side and then move towards the other, taking one more seat at a time, you will need 9 moves, plus 1 that accounts for the original location, that makes it 10 or 12-2.

Most of the problems here are GMAT tough, so even if you take 3 min, it won't hurt you.
