F wants to be President if E is Vice president.
B does not want to be either President or Vice president.
E does not work if both A and B work.
D does not work if any of A and B works.
C works only if F works along with B.
Can you specify who gets which post?

F - President
E - Vice president
B - Secretary
C - Treasurer

Let F be the President, and complying with his conditions, E the Vice President.

B does not wish to be either the President, Vice-President, so he is most likely to be the Secretary or Treasurer. Let him be the Secretary.

Besides it will not violate E's condition who would not work if both A and B work, but can work with either of them.

D cannot be appointed as Treasurer, with in the work force. Hence the last option is C, whose conditions are compatible with the elected work force.

F - President
E - Vice President
B - Secretary
A - Treasurer
