 Last Friday, when six 6th grade boys sat at the same cafeteria table during lunch, one of them observed that they shared the same six names as first and last names, with each having as a first name the last name of one of the other five. Another of the six noted that no two of them shared the same pair of names, with one having another's last name and vice versa. Given the clues below, can you find each boy's full name as well as the clockwise order in which the six were seated for lunch last Friday? The boy whose first name is Thomas was seated directly between the boy whose first name is Charles and the boy whose second name is Anthony. The boy whose second name is Thomas was seated directly between the boy whose first name is Scott and the one whose 2nd name is Charles. The boy whose first name is Brett sat to the immediate left of the boy whose second name is Scott. The boy whose second name is Gregory was seated directly between the boy whose first name is Anthony and the one whose 2nd name is Brett. The boy whose first name is Thomas doesn't have the surname Brett. The boy whose surname is Charles doesn't have Anthony as a first name.
