    Btw, the question is worded badly, you should scald your teacher.

    Place your first person in a seat. Then for the first 3 pictures put a different person in the seat clockwise of him. For each of those 3, put the remaining 2 people in different seats. Boom, 6.

    They are only the same if you can rotate the table so they look exactly the same.

    Yup, so the two pictures you drew are different as you can't rotate one to make the other.

    My apologies, I could only see the first drawing in each of your pictures as my window is small. In your second picture they are the same yes,

    Why did you move your A? With your 3 you got, just swap the bottom row and keep the top row the same.
