Family seat;Letter

COULD SOME professor of psychology or education finally answer a question that has puzzled me for more than 20 years? In my classroom there are 34 desks and chairs. Why is it that brothers and sisters, who may be years apart in age and very different in terms of ability, always sit in the same seat? The odds against such a coincidence must be huge.
