As from the above points derived from the given question Either Amy or Clindy might had Black hair.

Linda had red hair

If We take amy had the black hair then there will not be any ambiguity according to the question. At the mean time Amy doesn't had any music abilities.So Amy came third(refer to the point 3). Clindy (1) | Amy(3) | Linda (2) | 1.Musician | 1. No musical Abilities | 1.red hair | 2.Black hair | 2.Black hair | 2.Musician| 3.Maths major 3.Maths major 3.Maths major|

First is Linda (answer) she cant 3 bcoz she have red hair mean she (Linda)

1. Linda(L)
2. Amy(A)
3. Cindy(C) Rank -1 ( Musician) [C,L] Since, Amy is not musician
Rank -2 ( Maths Major) [C,A,L]
Rank -3 (Black Hair) [ C, A] Since, Linda has Red Hair. For Rank -1, if Cindy is considered, there is a contradiction since Cindy has Black Hair. Making Linda standing at Rank-1.
For Rank-2, if Cindy is considered again, there is a contradiction since Cindy has Black Hair and one with Black Hair stands Rank -3. Also, Linda is Rank-1, Amy is left for Rank-2.
For Rank -3, from above all statements, Cindy stands Rank -3.
