math challenge

October 28 - November 10, 1996

Standing Room Only

3 Math Students, 2 History students, 2 English students are standing next to each other, but not necessarily in that order. They are there to meet a royal dignitary, but the meeting will be cancelled if they cannot resolve their problems.

Each of the History students refuses to stand next to any English students, or to the other History student.

No math student will stand next to any other math student.

The English students will stand anywhere.

What is a possible arrangement for the students?
