# Floor Puzzle

When it comes to solving floor-based puzzles, there will be information about people on different floors of the same or different buildings in this type of puzzle reasoning.

## Introduction

For a floor-based puzzle to be solved, the given raw information must be organised in a specific way, so that the sequence or order of events can be accurately depicted. When it comes to solving floor-based puzzles, the information given to the contestants is often jumbled or randomly arranged. In order to test a candidate’s mental and analytical abilities, it examines the candidate’s ability to decipher, sequence, and analyse the given information into a meaningful and judgmental form, to arrive at the final decision or conclusion. One of the most difficult parts of reasoning is to solve puzzles logically because there is no set pattern or formulae for this sort of problem.

## Floor puzzle reasoning

To solve floor puzzles reasoning, solvers must use logic to analyse the information provided in a puzzle. Candidates are only required to pay attention to the specifics of the floor based puzzle question and respond accordingly.

These practice questions can be used by candidates to improve their accuracy and efficiency in the reasoning section’s floor puzzle-based questions.

### Tips and tricks to solve floor based puzzle questions and floor and flat based questions

• The first step is to gather as much information as possible

• Use a table format to present the most relevant facts and figures

• In your table, mark down all of the negative information that you’ve uncovered

• The indirect data reveals more information

• For the most part, there will be more than one option in some situations

• Because of this, it’s a good idea to divide them up into different tables based on your options

• Remove all tables that contradict the puzzle’s other information, as stated

• The correct answer can be found by following this procedure

• There are many tricky puzzles. Make sure that every word and sentence is perfectly read

## Floor based puzzle questions

Here are some important floor based puzzle questions

The tenth floor of a ten-story building is numbered ten, and the first floor is numbered one. Ten people live there.

Between P and W, there are five people. Q and W are shared by two people. Between Q and U, three people live. X can be found directly above P, as the name suggests. On the other hand, P and U are not on the same floor. V and Y are next to each other. S and Y are separated by three people. T is a subordinate of R. Between T and V, there are no more than two people.

Using this solve the questions below

1. What is the name of the person who lives directly above T?

(a) Q

(b) S

(C) W

(d) P

2. Between R and Y, how many people live?

(a) Eight

(b) Four

(c) Six

(d) seven

3. As many people live between T and X as there are between.

(a) U and Q

(b) P and Q

(c) R and P

(d) S and Y

Six people live on the first through sixth floors of a six-story apartment with numbers ranging from one to six: Trilok, Mukul, Mahesh, Somesh, Arjuna, and Bhupal. At the very bottom of the building is floor 1, and the very top is floor 6. Mahesh resides on a floor with an even number of residents. Arjuna does not reside on the top or bottom floors of the building. Mukul and Mahesh are subordinate to Trilok. Located below Somesh is Bhupal. Mukul doesn’t live on the lowest floor of the two floors between Arjuna and Mukul.

1. Who lives on floor 2?

a) Arjun

b) Mukund

c) Somesh

d) Can’t be determined

Explanation: Neither Arjun nor Mukund are located on the top or bottom floors of the building. Only if Arjun is in 5 and Mukund in 2 or Mukund is in 5 and Arjun is in 2.

Question 2: What’s the total number of floors below Arjun?

b) 1

c) 3

d) Can’t be determined

Question 3: When it comes to Mahesh, where does Bhupal live?

b) Two floors below

c) Three floors below

d) Four floors below

### Conclusion

There will be information about people on different floors of the same or different buildings in this type of reasoning. A list of instructions is given, and the candidate must follow it.

Take the time to study the information provided. The type of puzzle you’re dealing with is important to know (only floor-based puzzles or floor with flats based puzzles). Try to gauge the difficulty level of the question before answering it. You should always begin with the most detailed statements/data first. We can also begin with odd or even-numbered floors in floor-based puzzles.

Put the information in order so that we can solve the puzzle quickly.
