Let me see if I can remember my math from college...lol. 5 possibilities for the first position, 4 for the second, 3 for the third, 2 for the fourth, and only 1 for the last. So the grand total would be 120?

OMG----I actually started thinking about this one and then looked at the hint again....lol. No matter what languages they each know, they are all french! So it doesn't matter how you seat them, because they will understand each other...lol.

Sit In A Row
Georges, Patrick, Charlis, Samuel and Bruno are five Frenchmen. Georges knows English and Chinese. Patrick knows Chinese and Japanese. Charlis knows Japanese and German. Samuel knows German and English. Bruno knows them all: English, Chinese, Japanese and German.

In how many ways can they sit in a row, such that any two neighboring persons have no problems in communication?

Hint:
Look at its category.

Answer
5*4*3*2*1=120.
