Only two persons sit between A and B.

B sits neither at extreme ends nor faces Q.

We cannot able to form a single meaningful word with using these four letters. So Z is the answer.

Directions (16-20)

M lives third position from the top. Only one person lives between M and O.

Only three persons live between O and P. K lives just below of P but not on the bottommost floor.Case 1b is eliminated because we cannot fix the position of K in this case. And the remaining cases becomes,

Only four persons live between K and H. From this statement the position of H is not fixed in case 2, so this case is eliminated.

I lives adjacent to O. More than three persons live between I and L. J does not live an odd number floor. Only one Person live between N and G.

Directions (31-35)

O sits opposite to K.

N sits fourth to the left of K.

Only one person sits between N and P.

More than one person sits between K and P.

Only two persons sit between J and K.

Numbers of persons sit between J and P (when counted from left of J) is the same as the numbers of persons sits between K and O.

O sits opposite to K. From this statement number of person sits between O and K are equal on both sides.

So in case 2aย there are two persons sit between J and P when counted from left of J. If we place two person between K and O from left of K, then the condition is not satisfied, Soย case 2a is eliminated.

Now the case 2b becomes,

I is an immediate neighbor of O.

Only three persons sit between I and L.

M sits exactly between I and L.

M is not an immediate neighbor of O.

Not more than four persons sit between M and L. We have two possible cases.

In case 2b-ii, M is not an immediate neighbor of O,

This case is not satisfied the above condition, so this case is eliminated.

And Case 2b-i is the final arrangement
