Answers:

Direction (1-5):

  • R works in Infosys and has a salary of Rs.10000
  • U is an Auditor.
  • The Salary of T is Rs.20000.
  • P is CA and works in TCS.
  • The salary of P is 25000.
Person Designation Company Salary
P CA TCS Rs.25000
Q
R Infosys Rs.10000
S
T Rs.20000
U Auditor

 

  • The person who works in Sony is an Engineer.
  • Q is not working in HCL,CTS and TVS. So Q is works in Sony and his Designation is an Engineer.
  • S’s salary is less than that of R’s salary, hence S salary is Rs.5000.
Person Designation Company Salary
P CA TCS Rs.25000
Q Engineer Sony
R Infosys Rs.10000
S Rs.5000
T Rs.20000
U Auditor

 

  • The Manager works in CTS.
  • From the statement R is not CFO, we can conclude that R is the CEO.
  • The person who works in TVS has the highest amount of salary, from this statement we can conclude that Auditor works in TVS and has a salary of Rs.30000.
  • The person who works in HCL has higher salary than the person who works in Infosys. Hence we can fix that T works in HCL.
  • The Manager works in CTS, So T belongs to CFO. Now the final arrangement becomes,
Person Designation Company Salary
P CA TCS Rs.25000
Q Engineer Sony Rs.15000
R CEO Infosys Rs.10000
S Manager CTS Rs.5000
T CFO HCL Rs.20000

Direction (6-10):

  • G likes Blue and lives on floor number 5.
  • The one who likes Red color has lives in floor number 2.
Floor number Person Color
7
6
5 G Blue
4
3
2 Red
1

 

  • B does not live below G.
  • B lives immediately above E. From the two statements B should live in floor number 7 and E should live in floor number 6.
  • The one who likes yellow color lives below the floor number 3. Already the person who likes red color lives in floor number 2, Hence the person who like yellow color lives in floor number 1.
Floor number Person Color
7 B
6 E
5 G Blue
4
3
2 Red
1 Yellow

 

  • The one who likes White color lives immediately below C. from this statement C should live in floor number 4 and the one who like white color lives in floor number 3.

6 E
5 G Blue
4 C
3 White
2 Red
1 Yellow

 

  • E does not like the Pink color.
  • The one who likes Green color does not live immediately above or below G, hence we conclude that E likes Black color and B likes Green color.
Floor number Person Color
7 B Green
6 E Black
5 G Blue
4 C
3 White
2 Red
1 Yellow

 

  • F does not live in the lowermost floor and does not like the White color. Therefore F should be lives in floor number 2.
  • D does not live above A. So A lives on floor number 3 and D lives on floor number 1.
  • Then we have remaining one color i.e., Pink .So C likes Pink color.

Now the final arrangement becomes:

Floor number Person Color
7 B Green
6 E Black
5 G Blue
4 C Pink
3 A White
2 F Red
1 D Yellow
