Y sits second to the right of G, who faces the centre. Z sits second to the left of Y. Z is an immediate neighbour of both F and W. X sits second to the left of W. D sits second to the left of X. Z sits second to the left of E. D sits second to the left of F. Z faces the same direction as W. E sits third to the right of F. The immediate neighbours of G face the same direction.
