**Directions: Study the information and answer the given question:**

There are seven people A, B, C, D, E, F, and G. They all were born in different years viz. 1947, 1952, 1960, 1968, 1982, 1990 and 1997 but not necessarily in same order. But the date and month of birth of all these persons are same. The calculation is done with respect to the year 2017 and assuming months and date to be same.

G's age is in multiple of 5. The difference of age between A and D is double the difference of age between B and C. C was born in the even number of year. D is younger than A. G does not the oldest person. The age of F is exactly double the age of one of them. A does not born in 1960.

Refer the above for the Questions 81 to 80

__Reference:__

G's age is in multiple of 5. G does not the oldest person.

---> The age of G must be either 65 or 35 or 20.

Hence, there are 3 possibility cases, as follows:

1982 | 35 | G | ||

1990 | 27 | |||

1997 | 20 | G |

__Reference:__The age of F is exactly double the age of one of them.

---> The

**age of F**must be

**70**, so that 2*35 = 70, in which 35 is the age of one of the given person.

Given, A does not born in 1960.

__Reference:__The difference of age between A and D is double the difference of age between B and C.

D is younger than A.

C was born in the even number of year.

---> This implies that, the condition is age of {

**A - D = 2 (C - B)**}

---> When we go through the ages, there are only two possibilities which satisfies the above condition:

**: Let A’s age = 49, D’s age = 35, C’s age = 27, B’s age = 20**

__Possibility 1__Then A - D = 2 (C - B)

----> 49 - 35 = 2(27 - 20)

----> 14 = 2 (7)

---> 14 = 14

Condition is satisfied in this case.

**: Let A’s age = 57, D’s age = 27, C’s age = 35, B’s age = 20**

__Possibility 2__Then A - D = 2 (C - B)

----> 57 - 27 = 2(35 - 20)

----> 30 = 2 (15)

---> 30 = 30

Given Condition is satisfied in this case also.

But, it is given that, A does not born in 1960, so age of A must not be 57. Hence,

**Possibility 2 is eliminated**.

Thus, we can fill the result of Possibility 1 exactly in the case 1 only as follows. Hence

**case 2 and case 3 are eliminated**.

1990 | 27 | C |

Now the only left person is E, who would be born on 1960. Thus, the final solution is:

Final Solution:

Common Explanation:

Reference:

Eight persons – Nitin, Prakash, Anant, Gopal, Vishal, Manish, Jayant and Depak, were living on different floors of a building. There are eight floors in a building numbered 1 – 8 such that the bottom floor is numbered as 1, and top floor is numbered as 8. These persons earns a different amount – 2 lakhs, 3 lakhs, 4 lakhs, 6 lakhs, 7 lakhs, 8 lakhs, 10 lakhs and 12 lakhs but not necessarily in the same order.

Inference:

We will keep this information in mind while solving the puzzle.

Reference:

Manish lives on an even number floor below 5th floor.

Jayant lives just above Manish and earns in multiple of 4 but not 4 Lakhs.

Only one person lives between Jayant and Depak.

Jayant lives above Depak.

Only one person lives between Jayant and Vishal.

Inference:

Here, we have two possible scenarios in which above hints can be used accordingly.

Case 1:

As we have already figured out that amount earned by Jayant is either 8 lakhs or 12 lakhs.

Here, we have two possible scenarios in which we can figure out the amount earned by these persons.

Possibility 1:

If Jayant earns 8 lakhs then,

As none of the persons is earning 5 lakhs so we can say that this is a false possibility.

Possibility 2:

Jayant earns 12 lakhs.

If Jayant earns 12 lakhs then,

Here, the only possible scenario in which amount earned by Gopal can be made equal to 2 lakhs more than the sum of amounts earned by Anant and Prakash is when Anant earns 2 lakhs and then amount earned by Gopal is (4 + 2)+2 = 8 lakhs.

At this point we can say that the amount earned by Manish is 10 lakhs.

Reference:

The total amount earned by persons living on floor number 7 and 8 is 5 lakhs.

Prakash lives above Gopal.

Inference:

We have:

Case 1:

Jayant earns 12 lakhs.

If Jayant earns 12 lakhs then,

Here, the only possible scenario in which amount earned by Gopal can be made equal to 2 lakhs more than the sum of amounts earned by Anant and Prakash is when Anant earns 2 lakhs and then amount earned by Gopal is (4 + 2)+2 = 8 lakhs.

At this point we can say that the amount earned by Manish is 10 lakhs.

Reference:

The total amount earned by persons living on floor number 7 and 8 is 5 lakhs.

Prakash lives above Gopal.
