# What is the position of S in the given stack of boxes ?

Solution

The ribbon box is kept immediately above U.

Only one box is kept between the ribbon box and the nuts box and the nuts box is kept below the ribbon box, => The nuts box is kept immediately below U.

Only three boxes are kept between U and V, => Let V is kept at the top and thus the nuts box is kept second from the bottom.

Only two boxes are kept between the nuts box and R, => Box R is kept immediately above the ribbon box.

S is kept immediately below X and S is not kept immediately above V, => S is kept at the bottom and X is immediately above it.

Only two boxes are kept between X and the Balloon box, => Balloons are kept in box R.

The chocolate box is kept immediately above W, => V contains chocolates and W is immediately below it.

Only three boxes are kept between the chocolates box and the accessories box, => U contains accessories.
