## Solutions

(1 to 5):- It is given that P lives on an odd numbered floor above the floor numbered four so there can be two possibilities-

Case 1-When P lives on 7th floor.

The one, who likes Pink colour lives immediately below the vacant floor. M lives immediately below the vacant floor so M likes Pink colour. The one, who likes Pink colour, lives on one of the floors below the floor number 4 so there can be another two possibilities-

Case 1(i)- When M lives on the ground floor but it is given that M lives immediately above the one who likes Brown colour so this case will be eliminated.

Case 1(ii)- When M lives on the 3rd floor, Fourth floor will be a vacant floor. There are three people live between R and the vacant floor so R lives on 8th floor. The number of floors above P is same as the number of floors between P and N so N lives on 5th floor. There are only three floors between N and the one who likes Red colour. Only two floors are there between the one who likes Green colour and Red colour but it cannot be possible as 4th floor is vacant.

Case 2- When P lives on 5th floor.

The number of floors above P is same as the number of floors between P and N so N lives on 1st  floor. According to the condition given in the first case, M lives on 3rd floor and likes pink colour, P likes red colour so fourth floor will be vacant. The person who lives on top floor likes green colour. There are three people live between R and the vacant floor so R lives on top floor. There are only four floors between Q and L. The one who likes Orange colour lives immediately below to Q.Q lives on 7th floor and L lives on 2nd floor. O lives on 6th floor. L likes Brown colour. Q likes purple colour.
