V lives on an even numbered floor below the floor on which S lives. R lives on floor numbered 4. There are only three persons lives between U and T who lives on odd numbered floor above the floor on which R lives.

Q5. How many floors are between the one who lives immediately below W and V?
(a) Two
(b) Three
(c) One
(d) Five
(e) No one

Solutions (1-5):

(i) By using the given conditions, S lives on even numbered floor above the floor numbered 5., so S lives either on 6th or 8th floor. R lives on floor numbered 4, hence following cases will be there:

(ii) By using remaining condition, P lives immediate above the floor on which U lives. There are only three persons lives between U and T who lives on odd numbered floor above the floor on which R lives, So case 1 and 2 will be eliminated, because the condition will not be fulfilled.

(iii) Case 3 will be continued with rest conditions, only two persons live between the floor on which V and W live. W lives on 3rd floor and  Q lives on 7th floor.

The one, who likes Blue colour, doesn’t work in company F. L likes Green colour and Q likes Yellow colour. Q doesn’t work in company V. M works in company B. The one who likes Red colour, works in company A. M doesn’t like Black and Blue colour. The one who likes Peach colour, works in company C. Neither N nor R works in company C. N doesn’t like Red colour. O works in company F. N works in company D.

(a) Red-R

Solutions (6-10):

(i) From the condition, L likes Green and Q likes Yellow. M works in B. O works in F. N works in D. The one who likes Peach, works in C, so either X or R likes peach.

(ii) From rest conditions, the one who likes Red, works in A, so in case 1, R likes red and in case 2, X likes red. Q doesn’t work in V, it means L works in V and Q works in E. The one, who likes Blue, doesn’t work in F. M doesn’t like Black and Blue, so N likes blue, O likes black and M likes pink.

(iii) From the condition, Neither N nor R works in C, case 2 will be eliminated and case 1 will be our final solution.

A sits second to the left of C. F sits second to the right of A. No one sits to the left of F. As many persons sit to the right of A as sit to the left of B. H doesn’t face south. E sits second to the left of the one who sits third to the right of G. H is not an immediate neighbour of G. E and D face opposite direction with respect to each other. D face same direction as H faces.

Q11. Who among the following sits 2nd to the left of the one who sits immediate right of B?
(a) A
(b) E
(c) F
(d) C
(e) None of these

Q12. What is the position of D with respect to B?

(b) 2nd to the left

(e) None of these

Q15. How many persons sit to the left of C?
(a) One
(b) Three
(c) More than three
(d) Two
(e) None of these

Soutions (11-15):

(i) From the conditions, A sits second to the left of C, C can face either north or south. F sits second to the right of A. No one sits to the left of F, it means F sits at one of the extreme ends. As many persons sit to the right of A as sit to the left of B. We will have following cases:

(ii) E sits second to the left of the one who sits third to the right of G, so E is an immediate neighbour F and G’s position will be fixed in both the cases. H is not an immediate neighbour of G, hence H’s and D’ position will be fixed.

(iii) H doesn’t face south, from this case 2 will be eliminated. E and D face opposite direction with respect to each other. D faces same direction as H faces, from these conditions we will get final answer.
