            On this Diwali Ritika received eight different gifts i.e. Dark Fantasy Cookies, Kur Kure pack, Sweets, Biscuits, Real Juice, Frooti, Appy Fizz and Maaza in eight different color boxes, viz. Purple, Red, Black, White, Blue, Green, Orange and Yellow from her eight different friends – Akanksha, Megha, Manya, Aastha, Bhoomi, Dhara, Kritika and Ananya but not necessarily in the same order. After receiving all these gifts Ritika, puts all these gifts in her Cupboard which has 8 shelves in which ground shelf is numbered 1, first shelf is numbered 2 and so on until the top most shelf which is numbered 8. Each one of these gift has a different cost i.e. 118, 125, 132, 147, 160, 178, 185 and 199 but not necessarily in the same order.

            The cost price of a gift which is in a black color box is Rs. 147. The difference in the cost price between a gift which is placed on the topmost shelf and the gift which is placed on 3rd numbered shelf is 7.

The gift which is given by Ananya is placed on shelf numbered 2. There are some sweets and Biscuits in green and orange colored boxes respectively.

            The cost price of a gift which is in purple colored box is Rs. 178 but it is placed neither on shelf number 2 nor 4 The cost price of a gift which is on the topmost shelf is divisible by 5 but not by 4. Kritika gives Biscuits to Ritika and the price of her gift is Rs. 118. A gift which is given by Bhoomi is placed neither on shelf number 7 nor 3. A gift which is given by Akanksha is placed on shelf number 6. The black colored box is immediately above the Dark Fantasy Cookies’s shelf.
