It is stated that Anuj > Ajay > Atul… (i) and Anuj > Puja > Amar… (ii)

So, we can conclude that Anuj is eldest among them and so he studies in 5th year. So Atul will be in 2nd year.

Aman > Amar and Ajay > Atul. So Amar is youngest among them. So we can not decide who is elder among Amar and Ajay.
