##### v. The items assigned by Ashman were performed consecutively. The number of performances between items assigned by each of the remaining composers was the same.
Expanation:
First of all represent the dancers and composers by the first letter of their respective name.
As there were total 8 performances. No dancer performed her second item before the performance of the first item by any other dancers.
So from point v) The items assigned by A were performed consecutively . It means Items assigned by A were performed at no 4 and 5.
From point iv) The last performance was by Rani so she must have performed the 4th performance.
similarly from point iii) The first performance was by Princess; this item was assigned by Badal so 5th performance must be performed by P.
This can be represented in the table as given below:

 Orderof performance Dancer Composer 1 P B 2 3 4 R A 5 P A 6 7 8 R G

Now from point v) The number of performances between items assigned by each of the remaining composers was the same. this can not be 1 (because items assigned by A were consecutive ) similarly this can not be 2 or 3 as well if The number of performances between items assigned by each of the remaining composers was 2 or 3 then B must assign performance 4 or 5 which is not possible . thus this no must be 4. So B must assign performance 6 and g must assign performance no 3 . so the only performances left are 2 and 7 which must be assigned by D.
