Direction: Study the following information to answer the given questions:

Eight people A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H are sitting in two parallel rows containing four people each. B, D, F and H are sitting in row-I facing North and A, C, E and G are sitting in row-2 facing South (but not necessarily in the same order). Thus, each person sitting in row-I faces another person sitting in row-2. Each of the persons lives on different floors of a building.i.e. floor 1 to 8.

B lives on 4th floor and the person who lives on the 1st floor is not the neighbour of G in the row. H sits to the opposite of the person who sits to the immediate right of the person who lives on 2ndfloor. The person who lives on 3rd floor sits exactly between D and the person who lives on 8thfloor. G lives on even prime numbered floor. C lives neither on 1st floor nor on 5th floor. G sits opposite to F, who lives on the 8th floor. E sits between A and G. D sits at the left end of the row and lives on 6th floor.
Important for :
1
Which of the following represents the people sitting at extreme ends of both the rows?
» Explain it
A
The following common explanation, we get Clearly, A, C and B, D represent the people sitting at extreme ends of both the rows.

Hence, option A is correct.

Final tables:

 Floor Person 8 F 7 C 6 D 5 E 4 B 3 H 2 G 1 A

 Row- II Facing South ↓ A E G C Row- I Facing North ↑ D H F B

Common explanations

Reference:

B lives on 4th floor.

G, lives on even prime numbered floor.

B, D, F and H are sitting in row-I facing North and A, C, E and G are sitting in row-2 facing South (but not necessarily in the same order).

Inference:

The only even prime number from 1 to 8 is 2. So, G lives on second (2nd) Floor.

We shall keep the last hint in mind while drawing both the arrangements.

 Floor Person 8 7 6 5 4 B 3 2 G 1

Reference:

G sits opposite to F, who lives on 8th floor.

D , sits at the left end of the row and lives on the 6th floor.

The person who lives on 3rd floor sits between D and the person who lives on 8th floor.

Inference:

Below floor and linear arrangement can be obtained from the above hints.

 Floor Person 8 F 7 6 D 5 4 B 3 H 2 G 1

Since the person who lives on 3rd floor sits between D and F, thus B who lives on 4th floor must sit at the right end of Row-I.

And the only person left in Row-I i.e. 'H lives on third floor.

 Row- II Facing South ↓ Row- I Facing North↑ D H F B

Reference:

G sits opposite to F.

E sits between A and G.

The person who lives on the first floor is not the neighbour of G in the row.

Inference:

It means E and C can't live on the first floor.  Therefore, C would be living on the 7th floor.

Now only two floors are left i.e. 1 and 5, as E also can't live on 1st floor , so E must be living on 5th floor and A lives on 1st floor.

Thus both the arrangements get completed.

 Floor Person 8 F 7 C 6 D 5 E 4 B 3 H 2 G 1 A

 Row- II Facing South ↓ A E G C Row- I Facing North ↑ D H F B

And the only person left in Row-I i.e. 'H lives on third floor.

Reference:

G sits opposite to F.

E sits between A and G.
