(c) If the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question.
(d) If the data in both statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question.
(e) If the data even in both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.

Ans. d

Exp.  From statement I and II, Together

Step 1: From the given conditions, more than two person lives below R. Two person lives between S and R. S does not live on the ground floor. So, there will be two possible cases,

Case 1

 Floor Person 6 5 R 4 3 2 S 1

Case 2

 Floor Person 6 R 5 4 3 S 2 1

Step 2: Now, U is not the immediate neighbour of R. Two person lives between U and T. T lives below U. So, case I is eliminated. Continuing with case II, Q lives one of the floor below on which P lives. Hence, we get our final answer.

Case 2

 Floor Person 6 R 5 P 4 U 3 S 2 Q 1 T
