A is 33 years old and lives just above F’s flat. As A’s age is an odd number so A must live on an odd numbered floor and we know that A’s flat is just above the F’s flat so A cannot stay on 1st floor now A must stay on 3rd floor. C lives immediate left of F but doesn’t stay on flat II. So F must live on Flat II on 2nd floor and C lives on flat I on 2nd floor and A lives on flat II on 3rd floor.

E is 3 years younger to A and lives in flat II. So E is 30 years old so E either lives on 2nd or 4th floor. B lives immediate left of E so E doesn’t stay on 2nd floor then E must live on 4th floor on flat II. L is 56 years old. L is 20 years elder to J. So J is 36 years old. L and E don’t stay on the same floor. So L lives on 2nd floor in flat III and J lives on 4th floor in flat III.
