Solution:

Sol.(1-5):
Sol. Sol. Step1- From the given conditions, the female who like English lives on sixth number floor with J. H lives just below the floor on which J lives, who likes Hindi. Either the top floor or the bottom most floor is empty. So, there will be two possibilities in which case1 ninth floor is empty and in case2 first floor is empty. A who likes English lives above to the K who is a female and likes the math. There is six floor between the one like English and K. There are five floors between E and L and E lives one of the floor above L who is a female and likes economics. L lives alone.
Case 1                                                  Case 2

Step 2 :- As it is given that E does not live on floor number eight so possibility of case 1 eliminated. Proceeding with the rest of the statements given, ‘There is two floors between the one who like the Hindi and the empty floor and the one who like Hindi lives below to the empty floor. There are two empty odd floors’, So the floor no 7 is also empty.
“The two man likes English live on the same floor” and not more than three people likes the same subject so E is a male and likes English subject. C is a female who likes economics and share her floor with I who like math. F is a male person and lives immediate above the empty floor and like the Hindi. F lives with K.
Case 2

Step 3 :- Now G share the floor with the person who likes Hindi and G likes math. “There is two people live between the male person who likes economics and the one who likes math and the person who likes economics live below the one who likes the math” so H is a male and likes Economics and lives alone as it is given that There are two floors on which a single man and a single woman are living on floors which is living between two floors which are occupied by two persons each. Two females do not share the same floor. each subject is like by at least one female person. So, Hindi on floor number four is liked by a female person. So we get our final solution.
