Instructions

Study,the following information carefully and answer the questions given below :
Each of the six buildings — E, F, G, H, I and J — has different number of floors. Only three buildings have more number of floors than J. G has more number of floors than I but less than E. I has more number of floors than J. F does not have the least number of floors. The building having least number of floors has 5 floors. The building having third highest number of floors has 26 floors. F has 14 floors less than the number of floors in I.

Question 16

If the number of floors in building G is less than 38 and is an odd number which is Divisible by 3 but not 7, how many floors does G have ?

Solution

Only 3 buildings have more floors than J, thus J is fourth in order of most number of floors.

G has more floors than I and less floors than E. Also I has more floors than J, thus :-

F does not has the least number of floors :-

Now :-
the building with the least number of floors, i.e. H as 5 floors and the building with the third highest floors, i.e. I has 26 floors.

Now according to the question :-
Number of floors in G is less than 38, divisible by 3, not divisible by 7 and greater than 26.
Hence the number of floors can be : 33 or 27.

Hence option (D)
