Directions (1-5): Box H is two places below Box D and four places above Box E.

We get two possibilities. Number of boxes below Box J is as same as the number of boxes above Box F. Only one box is placed between Box J and Box G. Case (2) gets eliminated because No consecutive alphabets name of the box are placed adjacent to each other.

Box K is placed at one of the position above Box I.

Hence the final arrangement is Directions (6-10): The shelf number and the place value of the alphabet of the box placed in the shelf are not same in any shelves. (E.g. Place value of Box C in alphabet series is 3; so box C is not placed in the shelf numbered 3).

Box F is placed at one of the position below Box E in an even numbered position. Here the possibilities to the position of F are 2, 4, 6, 8. 8th position is not possible because Box D is two places above E.

Position 6 is also not possible since, The shelf number and the place value of the alphabet of the box placed in the shelf are not same in any shelves.

Number of boxes above E is as same as the number of boxes below C. Box C is placed at one of the position below E. We cannot fix the position of E and C in case 2. So it gets eliminated.

Number of boxes above E is as same as the number of boxes below C.

Box C is placed at one of the position below E.

Box D is two places above E.

Three boxes are placed between Box G and I. Box B is placed above A but below H.

Case 1(a) and Case 1(d) get eliminated. since The shelf number and the place value of the alphabet of the box placed in the shelf are not same in any shelves

Case 1(b) get eliminated Not more than three boxes are placed between Box G and Box

H. So Case 1c is the final arrangement.
