Directions (1-5): Study the information and answer the given questions:

Eight persons A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H live on different floors in the same building. The building has eight floors from 1 to 8 in such a way that ground floor is numbered 1, the above floor is numbered 2 and so on. The top most floor is numbered 8. D does not live on an odd numbered floor. There is only one person who live between the floor on which G and H live. G lives on an even numbered floor below the floor on which D lives. C lives on floor above D but below A. There are only three persons lives between F and E who lives on odd numbered floor above the floor on which G lives. D lives above the floor numbered 5.

Q1. Who among the following lives on topmost floor?
A
B
C
D
None of these
Solution:
From the conditions, D does not live on an odd numbered floor. D lives above the floor numbered 5. G lives on an even numbered floor below the floor on which D lives. C lives on floor above D but below A. There are only one person live between the floor on which G and H live from this condition we find that G and H lives either on 2nd or 4th floor. There are only three persons lives between F and E who lives on odd numbered floor above the floor on which G lives., from this condition the position of E is fixed on 5th floor and F on 1st floor and we get the final solution.

Q2. B lives on which of the following floor?
1st
3rd
4th
5th
