The barber and the tailor sit immediately next to each other. The lawyer is at the right extreme end of the row. The grocer is immediately to the left of the lawyer. Who must be exactly in the middle seat of the row?

, , , grocer, lawyer.

The grocer is not next to the barber. So barber cannot be in seat 3.
The barber and the tailor are next to each other.
So the order of seating can be,
barber, tailor, doctor, grocer, lawyer
tailor, barber, doctor, grocer, lawyer
doctor, barber, tailor, grocer, lawyer.
The blank is occupied by the doctor. So the doctor or tailor can be in the middle of the row.
