Explanation :

We have,

• Box S and box V are kept adjacent to each other.

From the above condition, there are two possibilities

Again we have,

• Only one box is kept between box S and box U.
• Box U is kept four boxes above box R.

Again we have,

• Only two boxes are kept between box R and box Y.

Again we have,

• As many boxes are kept between X and V as between Y and X which is kept immediately above box T.

So Case 1 and Case 2a get eliminated

Again we have,

• Box Z is kept two boxes above box W.

Hence Case2 shows the final arrangement
