Direction (1-5)

B is 56kg and two persons live between B and A.Not more than two persons are staying below A. So A can lives on 1st, 2nd or 3rd floor.

Floors Case 1 Case 2 Case 3
8
7
6 B/56
5 B/56
4 B/56
3 A
2 A
1 A

Two persons are staying between E and G and E lives above B on an odd numbered floor.

Floors Case 1 Case 2 Case 3
8
7 E E
6 B/56
5 E B/56
4 B/56 G G
3 A
2 G A
1 A

The number of floor between G and A is as same as that of C and E. So case 2 gets rejected. The one who is 73kg lives on top floor.

Floors Case 1 Case 3
8 /73 C/73
7 E
6 C B/56
5 E
4 B/56 G
3 A
2 G
1 A

D’s weight is a cube of a number and lives on an even numbered floor so only one number’s cube is in this range which is 64 so D is 64kg.

In case 1 no even numbered floor is left so case 1 gets rejected and in case 3, D lives on 2nd floor.

Floors Case 3
8 C/73
7 E
6 B/56
5
4 G
3 A
2 D/64
1

The difference of weight between D and F is 25kg. So F must be either 39 or 89 kg so the one who is lightest is 47kg so F is 89kg.

H is 7kg heavier than F and lives above F.

 So H is 96kg and must live on 5th floor and F lives on 1st floor.

The sum of the weight of H and E is 195kg so E is 195-96=99kg,

A’s weight is a square of a number. A is heavier than B.

A can be 47 or 81kg because D is already 64kg and A is heavier than B so A is 81kg.

Now G is 47kg.

 

Here is the final floor arrangement.

Floors Case 3
8 C/73
7 E/99

B/56

5 H/96
4 G/47
3 A/81
2 D/64
1 F/89
