According to the question:-
The architect is the only person who occupies the same type of berth as B.
It means B and the person whose profession is Architect have the same type of berth.
M Pathologist
H Lawyer
T Pharmacist
B Engineer
D is neither a Journalist nor an Architect.
So D is the Doctor.
K occupies the same type of berth as D.
M and H are not on the middle berth So they are on the upper berth.
B and the Architect are not on the upper berth So, they are on the lower berth.
Hence K and D are on the middle berth.
Only T is left, so he is on the middle berth. Hence, K is not Architect. so he is a Journalist and K is on the middle berth.
K   Journalist
Therefore, R is an Architect.
