Question 186

# Four of the following five are alike as per the given arrangement and thus form a group. Which of the following does not belong to that group?

Solution

J lives on floor numbered four and only two people live between J and O, => O lives on 1st floor.

Only one person lives between O and L, => L lives on 3rd floor.

M lives on even numbered floor and immediately above Q, => M lives on 8th floor and Q lives on 7th floor.

Only one person lives between Q and N, => Q lives on 5th floor.
