Question 136

# Who are staying in Top-Hill building ?

Solution

Representation: Name, Colour, Building

We know that two people live Ashiana, three in top hill, and two in ridge.

From the conditions, we can conclude:

Jashmeet-_-Ashiana

Varun-Black-Ashiana/Top hill

Ujjwal-Yellow-_

Deepak-Green-Ridge

Pritam-_-Top hill

Anand-_-_

Now, all the Ashiana slots are taken, hence, Varun shall stay in top hill.

Hence, it is Varun-black-top hill

We are left with One top hill, and one ridge. In colours, we have Blue, white, and red.

It is given that Pritam does not fly blue kite and none of the persons staying in top hill fly white kite. Hence, Pritam shall fly red kite.

Now, it is Pritam-Red-Top hill

We know that Ujjwal stays in a building different from Anand and Pritam. Hence, he shall live in Ridge/Ashiana. Since Ashiana slots are full, Ujjwal shall take Ridge (Ujjwal-Yellow-Ridge).

Now, it is clear that Anand will live in top hill (since all other slots are full). Further, no one in top hill can fly white kite, which means Anand shall have blue kite.

hence, Anand-Blue-top hill.

In the end, for jashmeet, we only have white kite.

Hence, Jashmeet-White-Ashiana.

From this, we know Anand, Pritam, and Varun stay in top hill.
