### Answers and Explanations

Key Points:

- Only G amongst the seven friends studied in college X along with E.
- Since there is no place is left in College X and F is not with B and does not belong to college Y, therefore B belongs to college Y and F belongs to college Z
- Since A is not in college Z therefore A is also in college Y.
- We are given by the statement that, none of those studied in college Y is a teacher, so any one of A,B,C is not a Teacher, i.e. so the one who is a Teacher would be D because we know that either of E,F,G is not a Teacher.
