Solutions (1-5):

(i) By using the given conditions, S lives on even numbered floor above the floor numbered 5., so S lives either on 6th or 8th floor. R lives on floor numbered 4, hence following cases will be there:

(ii) By using remaining condition, P lives immediate above the floor on which U lives. There are only three persons lives between U and T who lives on odd numbered floor above the floor on which R lives, So case 1 and 2 will be eliminated, because the condition will not be fulfilled.

(iii) Case 3 will be continued with rest conditions, only two persons live between the floor on which V and W live. W lives on 3rd floor and Q lives on 7th floor.

Solutions (6-10):

(i) From the condition, L likes Green and Q likes Yellow. M works in B. O works in F. N works in D. The one who likes Peach, works in C, so either X or R likes peach.

(ii) From rest conditions, the one who likes Red, works in A, so in case 1, R likes red and in case 2, X likes red. Q doesn’t work in V, it means L works in V and Q works in E. The one, who likes Blue, doesn’t work in F. M doesn’t like Black and Blue, so N likes blue, O likes black and M likes pink.

(iii) From the condition, Neither N nor R works in C, case 2 will be eliminated and case 1 will be our final solution.
