In a Building 12 Persons M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, K, L, I, and J are from 6 different Floors i.e.22, 23, 25, 28, 31 and 38. Each floor is colored with 6 different colors Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, White, and Violet. Each floor has allocated different numbers i.e. 10A, 13B, 11D, 6C, 20E, and 18B. Only 2 persons live on each floor. The Color of floor 25 is not white. T is from floor 22, whose color is blue. M, I are from even numbered floor. O, S, L are from odd numbered floor. The number of floor 38 is 11D. 20E is a number of an odd numbered floor but it is not floor 25. R is from floor 31 with P. K’s floor number is 13B and color is yellow while P’s floor number is 18B and color is green. M and N are from same floor. L is not from floor 25. I’s floor number is 10A. Q is from floor 23, whose color is red. K is from even numbered floor.

Q1. Who among the following is a floor-mate of P and what is color of floor 31?
L, White
K, Yellow
I, Green
R, Green
None of these
Solution:

(i) From given conditions M, I are from even numbered floor. O, S, L are from odd numbered floor. Q is from floor 23, whose color is red. T is from floor 22, whose color is blue. R is from floor 31 with P. P’s floor number is 18B and color is green.
(ii) K’s floor number is 13B and color is yellow. K is from even numbered floor. The number of floor 38 is 11D, hence K is from floor 28. M and N are from same floor, so M and N are from floor 38. I’s floor number is 10A, so I is from floor 22.

(iii) L is not from floor 25, so L is from floor 23. Only one place is remaining for S, so S is from floor 25. 20E is a number of an odd numbered floor but it is not floor 25, hence 20E is a number of floor 23 and 6C is a number of floor 25. It will be fixed that O is from floor 25 and J is from floor 28. Color of floor 25 is not white, so white is a color of floor 38. Violet color will be fixed for floor 25 and we will get final answer.

Q2. Floor of J is allocated which among the following number?
18B
6C
13B
20E
None of these
Solution:
(i) From given conditions M, I are from even numbered floor. O, S, L are from odd numbered floor. Q is from floor 23, whose color is red. T is from floor 22, whose color is blue. R is from floor 31 with P. P’s floor number is 18B and color is green.
(ii) K’s floor number is 13B and color is yellow. K is from even numbered floor. The number of floor 38 is 11D, hence K is from floor 28. M and N are from same floor, so M and N are from floor 38. I’s floor number is 10A, so I is from floor 22.

(iii) L is not from floor 25, so L is from floor 23. Only one place is remaining for S, so S is from floor 25. 20E is a number of an odd numbered floor but it is not floor 25, hence 20E is a number of floor 23 and 6C is a number of floor 25. It will be fixed that O is from floor 25 and J is from floor 28. Color of floor 25 is not white, so white is a color of floor 38. Violet color will be fixed for floor 25 and we will get final answer.
Q3. O is from which of the following floor and what is the color of O’s floor?
