**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (E)**

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).

**2) Answer (E)**

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).

So, the answer is (e) Can’t be determined.

**3) Answer (E)**

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).

So, the answer is (e) Can’t be determined.

**4) Answer (C)**

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 floor of Bhupal is 1 and Mahesh is 4. So, Bhupal is three floors below Mahesh.

**5) Answer (D)**

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.

**6) Answer (A)**

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.

V lives on 4th floor.

=> Ans – (A)

**7) Answer (D)**

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)

**8) Answer (C)**

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.

T lives on 5th floor and R on 2nd floor, thus there are 2 floors between them.

=> Ans – (C)

**9) Answer (B)**

E has the second lowest number of floors.

D has more number of floors than C and H but less than F, => F > D > C , H

Also, F does not have the maximum number of floors, => F has second highest number of floors and D has 3rd highest.

H has less number of floors than both G and E, => H has the least floors and G has the highest floors.

Combining above statements, we get :

**$\therefore$ G > F > D > C > E > H**

Number of floors of F = 40 and C = 28

Let number of floors in E = $x$

=> $x + 28 = 40 + 7$

=> $x = 47 – 28 = 19$

=> Ans – (B)

**10) Answer (D)**

E has the second lowest number of floors.

D has more number of floors than C and H but less than F, => F > D > C , H

Also, F does not have the maximum number of floors, => F has second highest number of floors and D has 3rd highest.

H has less number of floors than both G and E, => H has the least floors and G has the highest floors.

Combining above statements, we get :

**$\therefore$ G > F > D > C > E > H**

Number of floors of F = 40 and C = 28

H has the least number of floors and thus less than 28 i.e, 16

=> Ans – (D)

**11) Answer (E)**

E has the second lowest number of floors.

D has more number of floors than C and H but less than F, => F > D > C , H

Also, F does not have the maximum number of floors, => F has second highest number of floors and D has 3rd highest.

H has less number of floors than both G and E, => H has the least floors and G has the highest floors.

Combining above statements, we get :

**$\therefore$ G > F > D > C > E > H**

Number of floors of F = 40 and C = 28

G has the highest number of floors, thus G has more floors than 40 i.e., 47 floors.

=> Ans – (E)

**12) Answer (D)**

C lives above F, who in turn lives 3 floors above D. D does not live on the 2nd floor. The possibilities are as follows:

_ C

C _

F F

_ _

_ _

D D

But, A and B live on even numbered floors. So, the 2nd possibility is ruled out. E has to live on the 3rd floor. Since B does not live next to E, E should live on the 6th floor and A should live on the 2nd floor. So, the arrangement is as follows:

D(1) A(2) E(3) F(4) C(5) B(6)

So, A and E live between D and F.

**13) Answer (A)**

C lives above F, who in turn lives 3 floors above D. D does not live on the 2nd floor. The possibilities are as follows:

_ C

C _

F F

_ _

_ _

D D

But, A and B live on even numbered floors. So, the 2nd possibility is ruled out. E has to live on the 3rd floor. Since B does not live next to E, E should live on the 6th floor and A should live on the 2nd floor. So, the arrangement is as follows:

D(1) A(2) E(3) F(4) C(5) B(6)

So, B lives on the 6th floor.

**14) Answer (D)**

Two letters between L and P: L _ _ P _ or _ L _ _ P or P _ _ L _ or _ P _ _ L

S is not placed immediately next to L and there’s only one letter between S and A with S being towards the right: L _ A P S or A P S _ L

E is not next to A: L E A P S is the only possibility.

So, P is placed second to the right of E.

**15) Answer (C)**

Two letters between L and P: L _ _ P _ or _ L _ _ P or P _ _ L _ or _ P _ _ L

S is not placed immediately next to L and there’s only one letter between S and A with S being towards the right: L _ A P S or A P S _ L

E is not next to A: L E A P S is the only possibility.
