Direction: Read the given information carefully and answer the questions that are given below.
There are 10 persons namely J, K, L, M, N, P, Q, R, S, and T. They stay in a five floored building. The bottom floor is numbered 1 and the top floor is numbered 5. Each floor of the building has two flats namely flat A and flat B. Flat A is to the west of flat B. Flat A of floor 2 is immediately above the flat A of floor 1 and immediately below flat A of floor 3 and flat B of floor 2 is immediately above the flat B of floor 1 and immediately below the flat B of floor 3, it is similar for all the other floors. Here, the same flat type means if one person stays in flat A then the other person also stays in flat A if they are staying in the same flat type.
Q stays in flat A of an oddnumbered floor, but not the topmost floor. There are two floors between the floor of N and R. J stays just above Q. S and N are in different flat types on different floors. S stays on the topmost floor. There is no one to the east of R. M is to the northeast of L. N and R stay in the same flat type. P stays on one of the floors below Q, but not immediately below. R’s floor is just below the floor of S. M does not stay on the fifth floor. T stays below K.
Names given: J, K, L, M, N, P, Q, R, S, and T
Floors: 1 (lowermost floor) to 5 (topmost floor)
Flat: Flat A (West) and Flat B (East)
1) S stays on the topmost floor.
(Here there are two cases, Case 1: when S stays in flat A, Case 2: when S stays in flat B).
2) There is no one to the east of R.
(So, R stays in the flat B).
3) R’s floor is just below the floor of S.
(Hence, R stays on floor 4).

(As Q does not stay on the topmost floor then Q can either stay on floor 1 or floor 3).
8) P stays on one of the floors below Q, but not immediately below.
(As, P stays below Q, Q cannot stay on floor 1 as there are no floors below Q for P in that case and as P stays below Q’s floor but not immediately below so P stays on floor 1).

(Here, for M to be northeast of L, L will be on flat A of floor 2 and for M there are two cases when M is in flat B on floor 3 or flat B on floor 5).
11) M does not stay on the fifth floor.
(So, M will be on the third floor in flat B).

Here, the same flat type means if one person stays in flat A then the other person also stays in flat A if they are staying in the same flat type.
Q stays in flat A of an oddnumbered floor, but not the topmost floor. There are two floors between the floor of N and R. J stays just above Q. S and N are in different flat types on different floors.

There are 10 persons namely J, K, L, M, N, P, Q, R, S, and T. They stay in a five floored building. The bottom floor is numbered 1 and the top floor is numbered 5. Each floor of the building has two flats namely flat A and flat B. Flat A is to the west of flat B. Flat A of floor 2 is immediately above the flat A of floor 1 and immediately below flat A of floor 3 and flat B of floor 2 is immediately above the flat B of floor 1 and immediately below the flat B of floor 3, it is similar for all the other floors. Here, the same flat type means if one person stays in flat A then the other person also stays in flat A if they are staying in the same flat type.
Q stays in flat A of an oddnumbered floor, but not the topmost floor. There are two floors between the floor of N and R. J stays just above Q. S and N are in different flat types on different floors. S stays on the topmost floor. There is no one to the east of R. M is to the northeast of L. N and R stay in the same flat type. P stays on one of the floors below Q, but not immediately below. R’s floor is just below the floor of S. M does not stay on the fifth floor. T stays below K.
Names given: J, K, L, M, N, P, Q, R, S, and T

(Here there are two cases, Case 1: when S stays in flat A, Case 2: when S stays in flat B).
2) There is no one to the east of R.
(So, R stays in the flat B).

Now, let's check option by option,
I) H and C: H lives on floor 1 and C lives on floor 3.
II) G and E: G lives on floor 3 and E lives on floor 1.
III) C and F: C lives on floor 3 and F lives on floor 2.
IV) E and G: E lives on floor 1 and G lives on floor 3.
V) B and D: B lives on floor 2 and D lives on floor 4.
Here, we can see that in every option apart from option III), there is a difference of 2 floors between given persons.
Hence, 'C and F' is the correct answer.
Direction: Read the given information carefully and answer the questions asked below.
Seven people A, B, C, D, E, F, and G live on seven different floors of a building but not necessarily in the same order. The lowermost floor of the building is numbered as 1 and topmost floor is numbered as 7. A does not live on the topmost floor. B lives immediately below F. C lives on an evennumbered floor. Three people live between F and C. The number of people living between F and D is equal to the number of people living between D and C. More than four people live between E and G. B lives on one of the floors below G.
Seven people: A, B, C, D, E, F, and G
Floors (from bottom to top) – 1 to 9
1) C lives on an evennumbered floor.
2) Three people live between F and C.
3) The number of people living between F and D is equal to the number of people living between D and C.

In all options except option 3, the person is living on the oddnumbered floor.
But, in option 3, C is living on the second floor (evennumbered floor).
Hence, ‘C’ is the correct answer.
Directions: Answer the following questions according to the given statements:
There are eight persons A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H, who live on four different floors among floor 1, floor 2, floor 3 and floor 4. Each floor has two different flats viz. flat 1 and flat 2.
There are 2 flats on each floor flat 1 – flat 2 from left to right in such a way that flat 1 of the fourth floor is exactly above flat 1 of the third floor and flat 1 of the third floor is exactly above flat 1 of the second floor and other flats are situated in the same way.
C lives one floor above the floor on which B lives. F lives with B who lives two floors below D. B lives on the second floor. E lives in flat 2 of the first floor.
