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.
