Answer – 9 or 17
Explanation
Consider a case. If the number of seats is n = (2^k)+1 for some k, then, the maximum possible seating of (n/2)+1 can be achieved by having the first person sit at position 1 or n or ceil(n/2).This is true since when n=(2^k)+1, then, when someone sits in the first or middle or the last seat then all the other gaps are of length in powers of 2 (as suggested above by Vinay).
This implies that for this problem, with n=25, we need to split it into n1 and n2 such that: n1 = (2^k1)+1 and n2 = (2^k2)+1, for some k1, k2. Note that n1+n2 = n+1 = 26 (since they both share a common seat).
Thus, the only possible values are 9 or 17.
