Eight persons M, O, P, Q, R, S, T and U live on eight different flats of a four-storey building but not necessary in the same order, where the bottom most floor is 1 and the floor above is numbered 2 and so on. There are 2 types of flats on each floor, flat A and flat B are such that flat A is towards the west of flat B. Flat A of floor 1 is immediately below of flat A of floor 2, which is immediately below of flat A of floor 3 and so on, similarly for flat B. The dimensions of each of the flats are same. If one person lives immediately above or below the other then they have the same flat.
There are two floors between the floors of U and R (both of them may or may not live in the same type of flat). U lives south-west of M. Q lives 2 floors above M (both live in the same type of flat). O lives immediately above S (both live in the same type of flat), who doesn’t live anywhere below M’s floor. P doesn’t live on a floor above M.

Eight persons: M, O, P, Q, R, S, T and U

Flats: Flat A and Flat B

1. There are two floors between the floors of U and R (both of them may or may not live in the same type of flat).

2. U lives southwest of M.

3. Q lives 2 floors above M (both live in the same type of flat).

Floors Flat A Flat B
4 R Q
3    
2   M
1 U  

 

4. P doesn’t live on a floor above M.

5. O lives immediately above S, who doesn’t live anywhere below M’s floor.

The final arrangement is as follows:

Floors Flat A Flat B
4 R Q
3 O T
2 S M
1 U P

 

Hence, Q lives in the northeast of O.
