Solutions: (1 to 6)

J lives on floor numbered four and only two people live between J and O, => O lives on 1st floor.
Only one person lives between O and L, => L lives on 3rd floor.
M lives on even numbered floor and immediately above Q, => M lives on 8th floor and Q lives on 7th floor. Only one person lives between Q and N, => Q lives on 5th floor.
Similarly, K lives on 6th floor. The arrangement :

The pattern here is that except NQ, two people are living between each of the mentioned pairs.
=> Ans – (A)

Clearly, M lives on topmost i.e., 8th floor.
=> Ans – (D)

Person who lives 5th from bottom = N
Person who lives 2nd from top = Q
K is living between N and Q.
=> Ans – (B)

The only true statement is that only 2 people live between N and M.
=> Ans – (C)
