**BOX PUZZLE**

This type of puzzle is one of the most logical puzzles. In this type of puzzle, candidates need to arrange the boxes one above another. Here we solve some of the important questions on box based puzzle questions.

**QUESTIONS**

1.Seven boxes A,B,C,D,E,F,G are placed one above another. Each box contains a different number of pencils 21, 17, 13, 25, 36, 8, and 15. All information is not necessarily in the same order. Two boxes are placed between A and F. The number of pens in box F is a prime number. Box C is placed above the box that contains 17 pens.

Let us see another practice question.

- Nine boxes P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, and X are placed one above the other but necessarily in the same order. Each Box has different brands of mobile viz. Apple, MI, Samsung, Nokia, Motorola, Sony, Realme, Oneplus, and Lava but necessarily in the same order.

There are two boxes between Box V and Box of MI. Apple is placed just above Oneplus. Less than three boxes are there between the box of W and R. More than one and less than four boxes are there between Oneplus and Samsung. Box of Motorola is placed just below the box of U. There are three boxes between Box P, and U & Box P is placed above U. Not more than two boxes are there between the box of MI and Box T, which are placed below the Box of Nokia.

The Apple mobile is in box R, which is placed above Box X. Three boxes are there between box V and box Q. Mobiles of Motorola and Sony are not in box Q. Box T is placed third from the top. Box of Realme is placed just above Box V. Box Q is not placed just above or below Box T, but it is placed above Box X. More than two boxes are there between box Q and box S, which are placed above box T. Motorola is not placed on the bottom, and Box of MI is not placed on the top. One box is placed between Sony and Nokia. Box P does not contain Mobile of Lava.
