I lives just above A and none of them lives on a green painted floor. E lives on an odd numbered floor but not on ground floor. G lives on 5th floor which is painted blue. Two persons live between C and G. Four persons live between E and D. The ninth floor is not painted blue colored. Two persons live between A and H. B live on one of the floors above F.

(1-5)
Ninth floor and 1st floor are not painted of same color. The ninth floor is not blue colored. G lives on 5th floor which is painted blue. Two persons live between C and G. Four persons live between E and D. E lives on an odd numbered floor but not ground floor.
Case1 – C lives below G

Case2 – C lives aboves G

Two persons live between A and H. C lives below H. So, case2(a) gets eliminated. I lives just above A and none of them lives on an green painted floor. So, case2(b) gets eliminated. B live on one of the floors above F. The floor on which B and F lives are colored of same color. Minimum two persons live on a green painted floor below 5th floor.
