He is at 25th position from back , so there are 24 people behind him. Also he is at 18th position from the front that means 17 people ahead of him.
so total: 17+24+1(himself)=42

Hope this helps!!

I got this question because I did 8 + 5 = 12 instead of 13 while I was adding up 18 and 25.
And then I got 42 - 1 equals 41. Then I clicked A.
You need more than effort in GMAT.
You need serious prayer to your God.
