Answers:

Direction (1-5)

Three boxes are kept between box N and box S. Box N is above box S. Box S is not at the bottom so we get these cases-

Position Case 1 Case 2
1
2 N
3 N
4
5
6 S
7 S
8

Two boxes are between box O and box M. Box O is above box N.

Position Case 1 Case 2 Case 2A
1 O O
2 N O
3 N N
4 M M
5 M
6 S
7 S S
8

Box R’s weight is 17kg and two boxes are between box R and box Q. Box R is above box Q.

Position Case 1 Case 2 Case 2A Case 2B
1 O R/17 O O
2 N O R/17
3 N N N
4 M Q M M
5 R/17 M Q R/17
6 S
7 S S S
8 Q Q

The number of boxes is between box R and box N is same as between box R and the one which weight is 18kg.

Position Case 1 Case 2 Case 2A Case 2B
1 O R/17 O/18 O
2 N O R/17
3 N N N
4 M Q M M
5 R/17 M Q R/17
6 S
7 S S S/18
8 Q/18 Q

From this we can say that Case 2 gets rejected. Box Q is lighter than box R then case 1 gets rejected. Only case 2A and 2B is left.

Box M’s weight is 27kg.

Two boxes are between the one which weight is 21kg and the one which weight is 13kg. The one which weight is 21 kg is above the one which weight is 13kg. The one which weight is 13kg is not at the bottom.

Position Case 2A Case 2B
1 O/18 O
2 R/17
3 N/21 N/21
4 M/27 M/27
5 Q R/17
6 /13 /13
7 S S/18
8 Q

Box T is heavier than box N and kept above box S. In case 2A, box T’s weight must be higher than 21kg so box T must be at the bottom but then box T will be below box S so case 2A gets rejected. In case 2B, box T at the 2nd position and box P’s weight is 13kg.

Position Case 2B
1 O
2 T
3 N/21
4 M/27
5 R/17
6 P/13
7 S/18
8 Q

Box Q is 2kg heavier than box P so Box Q is 15kg. The sum of the weight of box Q and box T is 39kg then box T is (39-15)=24kg.

Box O is 5kg lighter than box T then box O is (24-5)=19kg.

Here is the final table:

Position Case 2B
1 O/19
2 T/24
3 N/21
4 M/27
5 R/17
6 P/13
7 S/18
8 Q/15
