Explanation :

We have,

• I lives three floors above C, where both of them live in different flats.
• E lives southeast of I, both are not living on adjacent floors.

From the above condition, there are three possibilities

Again we have,

• The number of floors above E is the same as the number of floors below F.
• A lives immediately below F but doesnot live in the same flat as E.
• H lives two floors below A.

Here Case1 gets eliminated

Again we have,

• J lives Northeast of G, who doesn’t live below C.
• Both D and B live above J, where D doesn’t live in the same flat as J.

So Case2 gets eliminated, hence Case-3 shows the final arrangement
