Question 173

# Which of the following superheroes does R like?

Solution

O lives immediately above K and O lives on an even numbered floor, but K lives neither on floor numbered three nor five.

=> O lives on topmost floor i.e. 8 and K lives on 7th floor.

Only two persons live between K and the one who likes Nova, => Person who likes Nova lives on 4th floor.

Only one person lives between the one who likes Nova and Ironman and the one who like Ironman lives below the one who likes Nova.

=> Person who likes Ironman lives on 2nd floor.

Also, person who like thor lives on even numbered floor. If he lives on top floor, then M lives on 4th floor and N on ground floor i.e., 1st floor which is not possible.

=> The person who like Thor lives on 6th floor and M lives on 2nd floor, thus, N lives on 5th floor and person who likes Hulk lives on 1st floor.

Also, L and Q lives on 4th and 3rd floors respectively. The arrangement :

Clearly, R likes Thor.

=> Ans - (D)
