Answers:

Direction (1-5)

B lives on an even numbered floor. Two persons are between B and the one who got 50 marks. B lives above the one who got 50 marks. H got 35 marks and lives on 4th floor. So B either lives on 8th or 6th floor.

If B lives on 8th floor then C lives on 1st floor because the number of person lives above B is same as below C. G lives below C so that can’t be possible.

Now B lives on 6th floor and C lives on 3rd floor.

Floor Person Marks
8
7
6 B
5
4 H 35
3 C 50
2
1

 

G lives below C. The one who got 80 marks lives just above G so G lives on 1st floor and the one who got 80 marks lives on 2nd floor.

Floor Person Marks
8
7
6 B
5
4 H 35
3 C 50
2 80
1 G

G got less marks than C. So G got either 40 or 45 marks. B got 10 more marks than G so if G got 40 marks than B got 50 marks but C already got 50 marks so G got 45 marks and B got 55 marks then F got 20 more marks than B so F got 75 marks.

Two persons live between A and D. D lives above A. A got less marks than F so A cannot get 80 marks then D lives on 8th floor and A lives on 5th floor now F lives on 7th floor. One person lives between F and the one who got 65 marks so A got 65 marks. Now E got 80 marks.

D got less marks than A but more than C. So D got 60 marks.

 

Here is the final table:

Floor Person Marks
8 D 60
7 F 75
6 B 55
5 A 65
4 H 35
3 C 50
2 E 80
1 G 45
