My department needs a new Social Coordinator! You see, we were going to have a Chinese New Year dinner but the seating plan proved to be too much for the organizer, who has now resigned. Math teachers can be hard to please!

The restaurant had big round tables for 10 people, (perfect for our department size), with chairs placed evenly around. Everyone was going to attend, and a fun evening seemed assured ... until the problems began.

[A] Ding wanted to sit as far as possible away from Dong.

[B] Walter wanted to sit opposite Wira, who insisted on sitting closer to Dong than to Ding.

[C] Wynn, Dan and Walter always sit together, in that order, anticlockwise (something about feng shui, they claimed.)

[D] Wira only wanted to sit between Liza and Fozz, who always sits with Rita!

Work out the seating plan and discover which teachers I sat between so everyone's preferences could be satisfied.
