# Solutions

Q ( 1 – 5):

C lives on topmost floor. As many persons live between C and H as between G and H. B and I live on 2nd floor ”,D lives on 3rd floor which is singly occupied. we get 2 cases:

Only one floor gap is in between D and E. E lives above D, who lives on a singly occupied floor. Now F does not lives on an odd numbered floor and not on a doubly occupied floor” therefore only one position left as F lives on 4th floor in case-1 and on 6th floor in case-2.

From More than 1 floor is between A and C.”, case2 gets cancelled, as the odd doubly occupied floor is above even doubly occupied floor, means either 5th or 7th floor is doubly occupied, but topmost floor is not doubly occupied, so rest 5th floor is doubly occupied,which means A lives with E on 5th floor in case2, but more than 1 floor gap is there in between C and A which is not possible in case-2 so now with case-1, A lives on Ground floor. So the final arrangement is:

Q1. Ans(A)

Q2. Ans(C)

Q3. Ans(D)

Q4. Ans(B)

Q5. Ans(C)

Q (6 – 10)

E buys table before Wednesday. Three person goes to the market between E and B. The one who goes to the market on Thursday buy Chair. So, there can be two possible cases-
Case-1: If E goes market on Tuesday—

A goes to the market immediately before G. Two persons go to the market between G and F. Only A and the one who goes to the market on Saturday buy Lamp. F neither goes to the market on Thursday nor buy lamp.

Only one person goes to the market in between D who buys Table and the one who buys Chair. C does not buy table. C go to the market neither immediately after nor immediately before B. From this Case-2 will be eliminated as no place left for C in it. Now, with case-1, it is clear that D goes to the market on Friday and C goes to the market on Monday and C buy Chair.

Q6. Ans(B)
