Explanation: Number of People Ahead & Behind Amy & Jed = 24
Total people = 35
Number people in front of Between Zed & Amy = 33-24 = 9
We know including fed, 15 are behind amy. = 14-9 = 5
So 5 are behind Jed, esle all are in front of JED i.e. 29
IMO-D

:please Please Give Kudos, If you find my explanation good enough :please

Number of people in front of Amy = Total - Number of people behind Amy - Amy = 35-15-1=19

We are also given that

Number of people in front of Amy + Number of people behind Jed = 24

So, 19 + Number of people behind Jed = 24

Number of people behind Jed = 24-19 = 5

Therefore, Number of people in front of Jed = Total - Number of people behind Jed - Jed = 35-5-1 = 29

Answer is (D)
