Correct Answer - Option 3 : Box S is immediately below box P.

Six boxes -  P, Q, R, S, T and U.

1) Only two boxes are placed between box S and U.

2) Box R is immediately above box U.

3) Box S is neither placed at the top nor at the bottom.

4) Box Q is immediately below box S.

 Case 1: Case 2: Case 3: Box Box Box R U S S Q Q R S R U Q U

5)  More than two boxes are placed below box T.

6) Box P is placed below box T and box T is not at the Top.

This will eliminate case 2 and case 3.

Therefore, the final arrangement is as:

 Box R U T P S Q

Checking each option:

Option 1:  Only two boxes are placed between U and P. → False.

Option 2: Box T is paced exactly between box R and P. → False.

Option 3: Box S is immediately below box P. → True.

Option 4: Number of boxes above box U is same as number of boxes below P. → False.

Option 5: Box R is immediately below box T. → False.

Hence, option (3) is true.
