Direction (6-10): Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below:

Eight persons i.e., G, H, I, J, K, L, M and N live on separate floors of 8-floor building such as ground floor is numbered as 1st floor, just above floor it is numbered as 2nd floor and so on till the topmost floor is numbered as 8th floor but not necessarily in the same order.

Three persons live between N and I who lives on an even numbered floor. H lives just above I’s floor. The number of person lives between H and G is same as persons live between G and K. G lives just above L. I lives below G’s floor. M lives on an even numbered floor.

B.K lives on an odd numbered floor

C.More than three persons live between N and J

D.More than two persons live between G and I

E.None is false

After arranging in ascending order from left to right, we get

356  495  673  785  987

Hence the sum of the first number and second number from left end = 356+495 = 851.

After interchanging the digit, we get

365 758 978 459 637

Hence the difference of the number which is second from the left end and second from the right end = 758 – 459 = 299.

After arranging it in descending order from left to right, we get

987 785 673 495 356

Hence the sum of the square of the first and last digits of the number which is second from right end= 42 + 52= 41.

After interchanging the digits, we get

653 587 789 594 376

Hence the difference between the highest and lowest number thus formed = 789 – 376 = 413.

After interchanging the digits, we get

536 875 897 945 763

Hence the sum of the second digit of the second number from the right end and third digit of the third number from the left end = 4 + 7 = 11.

Directions (6-10) :

As per the given statements, three persons live between N and I who lives on an even numbered floor. H lives just above I’s floor. So here we have three possible cases i.e., Case 1, Case 2 and Case 3. The number of person lives between H and G is same as persons live between G and K. I lives below G’s floor. So Case 3 gets eliminated here. G lives just above L. So, Case 1 gets eliminated. M lives on an even numbered floor
