Nine friends – P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W and X — live on nine different floors of a building but not necessarily in the same order. The lower most floor of the building is numbered one, the one above that is numbered two and so on till the topmost floor is numbered nine. Only two persons live below the floor on which V lives. Only one person lives between V and P. W lives on an odd numbered floor but not on floor number 7. Only two persons live between W and Q. X does not live on the topmost floor. P does not live on the lowermost floor. S lives immediately below R but R does not live on top most floor. Neither R nor T live on floor number 6. U lives immediately above P.

Question 82

# Who lives on the floor immediately below V?

Solution

Only two persons live below the floor on which V lives, => V lives on 3rd floor

Only one person lives between V and P and P does not live on the lowermost floor, => P lives on 5th floor.

W lives on an odd numbered floor but not on floor number 7, => W lives on 1st floor.

Only two persons live between W and Q, => Q lives on 4th floor.

S lives immediately below R but R does not live on top most floor, => R lives on 8th floor and S on 7th.

U lives immediately above P, => U lives on 6th floor.

Since, X does not live on top floor, => X lives on 2nd floor and T lives on 9th floor.

Clearly, X lives on the floor immediately below V.

=> Ans - (A)
