Question 168

# Which of the following pair represent those who live immediately above and immediately below Z ?

Solution

Z lives on an even numbered floor. Let Z lives on 6th floor, => The one who works at BOI lives on 2nd floor.

=> W lives on the first floor and the person who works at Axis bank lives on 3rd floor.

T does not work in BOI but lives immediately below V, who lives on an odd numbered floor, => T lives on 4th floor and V on 5th.

Only two persons live between T and the one who works at SBI and the one who works at SBI does not live on the lowermost floor,

=> The one who works at SBI lives on 7th floor.

Also, the person who works at SVC lives on 4th floor immediately above the person working at PNB, => the person working at IDBI lives on 6th floor.

X and S are neighbors and X lives on even floor, => X lives on 8th floor immediately above S.

Since, X does not work in TJSB, => W works in TJSB and similarly, Y works in PNB.

The arrangement is :

S and V lives immediately above and below Z respectively.

=> Ans - (D)
