Floor Based Reasoning Puzzle for IBPS PO Prelims 2020 and SBI PO Prelims 2020 | Reasoning Puzzle PDF at Smartkeeda

Directions: Read the following information carefully and choose the write answer carefully.
Eight school friends Parul, Kasim, Radha, Felix, Shahruk, Upendra, Amar and Navin live on separate floors of an eight-floor apartment building. Ground floor is numbered as 1, first floor is numbered as 2 and so on until the topmost floor is numbered as 8.
 
Only one person lives between Shahruk and Navin.
 
Shahruk lives above Navin. Upendra lives on an odd-numbered floor.
 
Parul lives on the floor numbered five. Only two people live between Parul and Kasim. Kasim lives above Parul.
 
Amar lives immediately above Felix. Shahruk lives immediately above Radha.

On which floor does Navin live?
» Explain it
B
Following the final table, it's clear that Navin lives on the 2nd floor.

Option B is hence the correct answer.

References:

Shahruk lives immediately above Radha. Only one person lives between Shahruk and Navin.

Case I:
 
8 Kasim

Case II:

Case II:
 
8 Kasim
7 Amar
6 Felix
5 Parul
4  
3 Shahruk
2 Radha
1 Navin
 
Reference:

Upendra lives on an odd-numbered floor.

Clearly, Case II becomes invalid here as in it Upendra will have to be placed on the 4th floor.

We get the final arrangement as follows:
 
8 Kasim
7 Amar
6 Felix
5 Parul
4 Shahruk
3 Radha
2 Navin
1 Upendra
2
Who lives between Amar and Parul?

Four of the five are alike in a certain manner and hence form a group. Find the one that does not belong to the group?
