Directions (Questions 1 to 5): Study the following information carefully to answer the given questions
Seven people P, Q, R, S, T, U and V live on separate floors of a 7-floor building. Ground floor is numbered 1, first floor is numbered. 2 and so on until the topmost floor are numbered 7.

The one travelling to Mumbai lives on an even-numbered floor. Only three people live between the ones travelling to Bangalore and Patna. T lives immediately above R. T is not travelling to Patna. Only two people live between Q and the one travelling to Kolkata. The one travelling to Kolkata lives below the floor on which Q lives.

GIVEN:
Ø  A 7 – storey building, where the Ground Floor = 1st Floor
Ø  7 Persons – P, Q, R, S, T, U and V
Ø  7 Cities – Delhi, Mumbai, Patna, Chennai, Bangalore, Lucknow and Kolkata

SOLUTION:
These types of questions can be best solved by the tabulation method
Ø  If persons / days are mentioned in the question then the first column of the table will always be persons/days
Ø  Here there are 7 persons, then the 1st column will be persons
Ø  Always start filling the Table from the bottom if there are more than one possibilities

CLUE 1: Only three people live above the floor on which P lives
Ø  Therefore P lives on the 4th floor (7 – 3 = 4)

CLUE 2: Only one person lives between P and the one travelling to Bangalore
Ø  Going by the clue, the person travelling to Bangalore is on alternate floor from P. The person can be in the floor either above or below P
Ø  That gives us 2 options
·         Above P – 6th Floor
             OR
·         Below P – 2nd Floor

CLUE 5: Only three people live between the ones travelling to Bangalore and Patna
Ø  From the clue 2, it is clear that the person travelling to Bangalore is either in floor 2 or 6
Ø  So if person travelling to Bangalore is in floor 2 then the person travelling to Patna will be in floor 6 and vice versa (because only three people live between the ones travelling to Bangalore and Patna)
Ø  Therefore, the person travelling to Mumbai cannot be in floor 2 or 6
Ø  By Clue 4, U will be in floor 3
Ø  Hence, 4th floor = P = Mumbai

·         Floors 1 & 2Ø  Here the tentative floors where T and R can be are as follows
·         Floors 5 & 6
·         Floors 6 & 7

CLUE 7: Only two people live between Q and the one travelling to Kolkata. The one travelling to Kolkata lives below the floor on which Q lives
Ø  This shows that the person travelling to Kolkata and Q are 2 floors apart, with the person travelling to Kolkata below Q
Ø  Now the person travelling to Kolkata cannot be in floor 1, because then Q would be in floor 4 which is not possible as 4th floor = P
Ø  If the person travelling to Kolkata is in floor 3, then Q will be in floor 6
Ø  The Kolkata person cannot be in floors 5 or 7 as there will be no floor for Q above them
Ø  Since Q is confirmed to be in floor 6, T and R combination cannot be available in the floors 5, 6 and 7
Ø  Therefore, 3rd Floor = U = Kolkata
                  6th Floor = Q = Bangalore or Patna
                  1st Floor = R
                   2nd Floor = T = Bangalore or Patna
