E and F live on even numbered floors with 3 people between them. That is possible only if they occupy 2 and 6 floors. Since D is above E, E is not at the top. So, F is on 6 and E on 2. D is on 3. C is below A and A is above D. So, A is on 5.

Arjun is not in the topmost or bottommost floor and there are two floors between Arjun and Mukund. This is only possible if Arjun is in 5 and Mukund is in 2 or Mukund is in 5 and Arjun is in 2.

Lets assume Arjun is in 5 and Mukund is in 2. Mahesh is in an even numbered floor and Trilok is above Mahesh and Mukund is possible only if Trilok is in 6 and Mahesh is in 4. Bhupal is below Somesh. So, Bhupal is in 1 and Somesh is in 3.

If Arjun is in 2 and Mukund in 5, Trilok will be in 6 as he is above Mukund. Mahesh is in an even numbered floor, so he will be in 4. Bhupal is below Somesh. So, Bhupal will be in 1 and Somesh will be in 3.

So, we can’t determine if Arjun or Mukund is in 2 (or 5).

The arrangement in the alphabetical order would be Arjun – 6, Bhupal – 5, Mahesh -4 , Mukund – 3, Somesh -2, Trilok – 1

So, his position changes from 6 to 1 ie by 5.

M lives on an odd numbered floor but not on floor 3. The one who has income of 11000 lives immediately above M. Only two people live between M and the one who has income of 7500,The one who has income of 7500 lives immediately above O, this can be represented in 2 scenarios :-

Only three people live between 0 and the one who has income of 15000. Person with income of 3500 lives immediately above the one with income of 5000.
Neither O nor M has income of 9000 this eliminating scenario-1 :-

Only one person lives between N and Q. N lives on one of the floors above Q. Q does not has income of ­7500. Thus Q leaves on floor 4.

R earns 4000 more than Q. The one who has income of 15000 lives on one of the odd numbered floors above P.

Hence Option E.

J lives on an odd numbered floor but not on the floor numbered 3 and the one who likes Accounts lives immediately above J, => J lives either on floor 1 or 5, let he lives on floor 5 (case 1). Thus, the one who likes Accounts lives on 6th floor.

Only two persons live between M and the one who likes Accounts, => M lives on 3rd floor

The one who likes History lives on one of the odd numbered floors above M, => He lives on 5th floor.

Only three persons live between L and the one who likes History, => L lives on 1st floor.

The one who likes Commerce lives immediately above L, => He lives on 2nd floor.

The one who likes English lives immediately above the one who likes Computer, => The one who likes English lives on 4th floor.

P lives on an odd numbered floor, => P lives on 7th floor.

Only one person lives between K and N and K lives on one of the floors above N. Also, N does not like Commerce, => K and N lives on 6th and 4th floors respectively.

Neither L nor J likes Biology, => P likes Biology.

O who likes commerce lives on 2nd floor.

=> Ans – (E)

There are two floors between the floors on which Q and V live. Q lives on a floor below V’s floor. Neither P nor T lives on a floor immediately above or immediately below the floor on which Q lives

Case 1 : Let V lives on 6th floor and Q on 3rd floor, => P cannot lives on 2nd and 4th floor, thus not possible.

Case 2 : Let V lives on 5th floor and Q lives on 2nd floor. Since, there is a gap of 1 floor between S and T, thus S and T live on either 6th or 4th floor. Then, again there is no even floor left for P.

Case 3 : V lives on 4th floor and Q lives on 1st floor.

There is only one floor between the floors on which S and T live, => S and T lives on either 5th or 3rd floor.

Since P lives on even floor, => P lives on 6th floor and R lives on 2nd floor.

Also, R is not a neighbour of T, => S lives on 3rd floor and T lives on 5th floor.

P lives on topmost floor.

=> Ans – (D)

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 :

A lives on 4th floor. Thus, there are 2 person living between him and the person on 7th floor.

=> Ans – (B)

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 :

H lives on 9th floor.

=> Ans – (D)

Q lives on fifth floor, => P lives on 6th floor.

T lives on an odd numbered floor below the floor numbered five and only three people live between T and X,

=> If T lives on 1st floor, then X must lives on fifth floor which is not possible as Q is living on it.

=> T lives on 3rd floor and X on 7th floor.

Only one person lives between X and V and V lives above X, => V lives on 9th floor.

Since, there is no one living between X and P, => no one must also live between T and S, thus S lives on 4th floor.

W lives on an even numbered floor immediately above R, => W lives on 2nd floor and R lives on 1st floor.

=> U lives on 8th floor. The arrangement is :

S is related to 6, => S lives one floor below 6th floor.

=> Ans – (B)

Q lives on fifth floor, => P lives on 6th floor.

T lives on an odd numbered floor below the floor numbered five and only three people live between T and X,

=> If T lives on 1st floor, then X must lives on fifth floor which is not possible as Q is living on it.

=> T lives on 3rd floor and X on 7th floor.

Only one person lives between X and V and V lives above X, => V lives on 9th floor.

Since, there is no one living between X and P, => no one must also live between T and S, thus S lives on 4th floor.

W lives on an even numbered floor immediately above R, => W lives on 2nd floor and R lives on 1st floor.

=> U lives on 8th floor. The arrangement is :

Since, there is no one living between X and P, => no one must also live between T and S, thus S lives on 4th floor.

W lives on an even numbered floor immediately above R, => W lives on 2nd floor and R lives on 1st floor.

=> U lives on 8th floor. The arrangement is :

Only R lives below W.
