In a recent competition all 11 contestants lined up in a straight line to have their photgraph taken for the local newspaper. So that the winner would stand out from the other contestants, the winner was asked to stand on a box in the centre of the line-up. Alec and Alma stood to the right of the box, Adam stood to the right of Alroy, two people stood between Aaron and Aubyn, Archy and Adrian stood to the left of the box, six people stood between Alma and Aaron, seven people stood between Alston and Albert, Antony and Adrain stood either side of Aaron and two people stood between Aaron and Archy. Who won the ceompetition ?
