Round the circle

Six children are in a circle.
(1) Ashley is holding on to Cameron
(2) Dylan is next to Ashley.
(3) Alyssa isn’t across from Cameron.
(4) Kelsey isn’t next to Dylan.
(5) Alyssa isn’t across from Dylan.

This type of puzzles relies solely on each person’s position relative to the other’s positions. There are no specific spots until you place the first person.

Step 1:

Since Ashley is holding on to Cameron (1), you can begin by placing Ashley and Cameron on the wheel.

Step 2:

Dylan is also next to Ashley (2), so you can place him on the other side of Ashley.

Step 3:

Alyssa isn’t across from Cameron (3) or Dylan (5), so she must be across from Ashley.

Step 4:

Kelsey isn’t next to Dylan (4) so she must be between Cameron and Alyssa.
Dylan

Alyssa
Kelsey

Step 5:

There is one person who you were given no information about, Maggie. Since there is one spot left, she must be between Dylan and Alyssa. The final solution is:
Dylan
Ashley
Cameron
Maggie
Alyssa
Kelsey
