- (N-1) Philosopers First Take Left Fork then Right Fork , Last Philosopher Take Right and then Left
- All philoposher sitting in ODD position take Left Fork then Right Fork , All philosophers sitting in EVEN position take right fork first then Left Fork .
Assuming option b is telling the point number 2 . hence both should be correct .
