Table below can be scrolled horizontally

Time Family Dish Chinaware
12 noon Sharma Sambhar White
1 p.m. Pattabhiramans Fried Brinjal Blue
2 p.m. Bannerjees Makkai-ki-roti Red

The information can be summarised as follows:

The Sharma family eats at noon and the Banerjees family eats at 2 o’ clock.

$\therefore$ The Pattabhiramanas family must be eating at 1 o’ clock.

Also, the family that eats at 1 o'clock serves fried brinjal i.e. Pattabhiramanas family and they use blue chinaware.

The family that serves sambhar does not use red chinaware, the family that eats last likes makkai-ki-roti.

$\therefore$ The Sharma family must be eating sambhar in the white chinaware and Banerjees family must be eating Makkai-ki-roti in the red chinaware.

Hence, option C is the correct choice.
