Best answer

After considering politician sitting third to the right of G and C being an immediate neightbour of G, we get: 

(C) shows currently multiple positions given for C

G(C)     (C)
   Politician    



Now, we are given that architect sits second to the right of C. This removes one possible position for C and we get:

G      C
 Architect Politician    


We get two possibilities after considering

 B sits third to the right of H. H is neither a politician nor an architect.

 

G H  B C
 Architect Politician Teacher  
GB    HC
 Architect Politician Teacher  

Here the first one is not possible because the only option for A and F as immediate neighbours would mean one between them is either a Politician or Architect. So, we get second one as only possibility. 

 

GB  (A)(F)(A)(F)HC
 Architect Politician Teacher  

Since 2 people sits between D and Engineer and D not being Politician we get 

GBD (A)(F)(A)(F)HC
 Architect Politician Teacher Engineer

 

Now Doctor sitting second to the right of A gives

GBD AFHC
 Architect Politician TeacherDoctorEngineer

Now, Pilot is not an immediate neighbour of politician and Banker sits second to the left of A gives:
