E lives on an odd numbered floor above I. Only three people live between E and G. A lives on an even numbered floor immediately below D but not on the floor numbered eight. Only one person lives between A and F. C lives on one of the floors below F. The number of people living above C is equal to the number of people living below H.

Question 39

# Which of the following statements is not true about B as per the given arrangement?

Solution

I lives on floor numbered six and E lives on an odd numbered floor above I, => let E lives on 7th floor.

Only three people live between E and G, => G lives on 3rd floor

A lives on an even numbered floor immediately below D but not on the floor numbered eight, => A lives on 4th floor and D lives on 5th floor.

Only one person lives between A and F and C lives on one of the floors below F, => F lives on 2nd floor which means C lives on 1st floor.

Since, 8 people live above C, => 8 people should live below H, => H lives on 9th floor.

The only remaining floor, i.e. 7th floor is taken by B. The arrangement :

Since, B and E are neighbours, thus there is no one living between B and E.

=> Ans - (C)
