Solution:
Option(D) is correct

$\because$ The accountant looks after Mukherji’s and Chatterji’s account.

$\therefore$ Chatterji and Mukherji cannot be the accountant.

Also Chatterji does not know Bannerji. If Bannerji was the accountant, he would manage Chatterji’s account and would hence know him.

$\therefore$ Bannerji also cannot be the accountant.

$\therefore$ Pestonji is the Accountant.

It is also mentioned that Bannerji owns an office and Chatterji owns a Nursing home.

$\therefore$ Bannerji has to be the Lawyer.

$\because$ Chatterji is not a doctor

$\therefore$ Mukherji has to be the doctor and Chatterji is the Dentist.

$\therefore$ Bannerji – Lawyer, Chatterji – Dentist, Mukherji – Doctor and Pestonji – Accountant is the correct combination.

Hence, option D is the correct choice.
