John is engaged to Sally,
Fred is engineer and Betty is not engaged to an engineer .. So Betty is engaged to Bill
The remaining two --> Fred and Joan are engaged.
so , the pairs are this
Bill --> Betty
John--> Sally
Fred--> Joan

Bill-Betty
John-sally
Fred-joan

1. John and Sally
2. Bill and Betty
3. Fred and Joan

John is engaged to Sally.
Fred is the engineer and Betty is not engaged to the engineer so it is clear that fred is engaged to joan.
only Bill and Betty are left so those two are engaged.

JOHN ===> SALLY
FRED ===> JOAN
BILL ===> BETTY
