The teachers Sushila, Lalita, Sushma and Prashant teach in a block of four different but adjacent class rooms numbered in order as A1, A2, A3, & A4. One of the teachers has his last name as Sharma. With the help of following clues find out last names of all the teachers and their class room numbers in which they teach:
1. Tripathi teaches so loud that her voice disturbs Mishra & Sushma, who teach in the classrooms adjacent to hers.
2. The four teachers are: Lalita, a teacher who teaches in classroom A2, Verma who does not teach in classroom A3, and only male teacher Prashant.
3. Sushma does not teach at either end of the classroom’s block.
Note: Verma, Sharma, Mishra, and Tripathi are the last names - written after first names.

Initially I had a different answer that worked with A1 and A4 being variables, but I deleted that once I realized the his statement.

Your interpretation of clue 2 is incorrect. At first I also got confused. Hint is the statement started with "The four teachers are...."

I'm incorrect because you messed up your riddles?

You can't say one of the teachers has his last name Sharma and then mention that there is only one male teacher.

That means that his last name is Sharma
