Discussion (Tab 1)
Metro Research is moving into a new office space, configured as shown in the Floor Plan, with eight individual offices (111, 112, 114, 115, 116, 117, 120, and 121) and four cubicles (119A through 119D). Each employee will be assigned exactly one workspace—an office or a cubicle—with no more than one employee per office or cubicle. Supervisors will not be assigned workspace in cubicles. If an employee has an immediate supervisor, the employee's office or cubicle must be adjacent to that supervisor's office.

Table (Tab 2)
The table lists the ten employees at Metro Research and shows each employee's immediate supervisor, if any. The supervisors are also employees, so each supervisor's name appears in both columns.

Floor Plan (Tab 3)
The floor plan shows the office space that Metro Research will occupy, in the northeast corner of one floor of a building. Two offices are adjacent to each other if and only if they are separated by a common wall. A different definition of adjacent applies to cubicles: cubicles 119A and 119B are adjacent only to office 121, while 119C and 119D are adjacent only to office 120.

Basically, the question asks for which people only have a single relationship. Lets go through the table one by one:

1) Salena - If Salena is in 112, Ciaran can only be in 111 which leaves no place for Elena or Leila. Not qualified.

2) Richard - If Richard is in 112, Kim can be in 111. No other conditions need to be satisfied. Qualified.

3) Kim - Same reason as 2. Qualified.

4) Pablo - If Pablo is in 112, Leila can only be in 111 which leaves no place for Ciaran. Not qualified.

5) Leila - Same reason as 1. Not qualified.

6) Atticus - If Atticus is in 112, Jamal can only be in 111 which leaves no place for Mei. Not qualified.

7) Elena - Same reason as 1. Not qualified.

8) Jamal - Same reason as 6. Not qualified.

9) Mei - Same reason as 6. Not qualified.

10 Ciaran - Same reason as 1. Not qualified.

So, only Kim and Richard are qualified.

Answer is 2.

Only 1 employee-supervisor can sit in 112 area. Plot a simple dependency diagram to make the picture clear. As shown below K/R relationship qualifies.

The problem is I faced in this one is I did't paid attention to the openings of the cubicles.
For instance A,B in adjacent to 121 only , similarly C,D is adjacent to to 120 only.

If two more employees are assigned to Jamal, then Jamal would have 4 employees under him. To be adjacent, the employees must be in cubicles A, B, C and D in 119 and Jamal must be in office 121 and 120. This limits the potential workspace assignments if Jamal only had two employees. For example, Jamal could have been in office 115 and Atticus and May could have been in 116 and 114 respectively. However, with 4 employees now, Jamal can no longer be assigned office 115.

Hope this helps!
