Direction (1-5)

  • B is 44 years old and two persons are staying between B and F. B lives above F. As B’s age is multiple of 4 so B must lives on an even numbered floor. Three possible cases-
Floor Case 1 Case 2 Case 3
8 B/44
7
6 B/44
5 F
4 B/44
3 F
2
1 F
  • The one who lives on the topmost floor is 40 years old. So case 1, gets rejected.
  • G is 45 years old and two persons are staying between G and A. A lives above F. It means A must live on an even numbered floor because G must live on an odd numbered floor.A is not 40 years old.
  • The one who is 30 years old is staying above A but below G. It means G is staying above A.
Floor Case 2 Case 3
8 /40 /40
7 G/45
6 B/44
5 /30 G/45
4 A B/44
3 F
2 A
1 F
  • The one who is 27 years old is staying below H but not on 1st

 

  • In case 2, the one who is 27 years old must live on 3rd So H is either 40 years old or 30 years old. H is 10 years younger to E. So E is either 40 years old or 50 years old. Now we can see that 50 is not divisible by 3 or 4 that means E is 40 years old and H is 30 years old.

 

  • In case 3,As we know that E is 40 years old and H is 30 years old. So the one who is 27 years old must live on 3rd floor but we know that The one who is 30 years old is staying above A but below G so that person also must live on 3rd floor so case 3 gets rejected.
Floor Case 2
8 E/40
7 G/45
6 B/44
5 H/30
4 A
3 F/27

1
  • A is 16 years elder to E. So A is 56 years old. D is 12 years elder to A so D is 68 years old and D’s age is multiple of 4 then D lives on 2nd
  • C is elder to H but younger to E and C’s age is divisible by 13. So C’s age is between 30-40 and it must be 39 years.

Here is the final Floor arrangement:

Floor Case 2
8 E/40
7 G/45
6 B/44
5 H/30
4 A/56
3 F/27
2 D/68
1 C/39
