Anthony is placed in Singapore (from ii) and Anthony is interested in IT and Electrical (from vi), but there are no vacancies for IT in Singapore, so Anthony must have placed in Electrical.

Frank is offered a job in Australia (from iv) and Frank is interested in IT and Mechanical (from vi), but Evan is already placed in Mechanical (from iv), so Frank must have placed in IT.

UAE is for metallurgy (from vii) and Dinesh is in UAE (from ii), so Dinesh must have placed in Metallurgy.
