Key & Solution :

 Floor Person Game 7 B Badminton 6 A Polo 5 L Chess 4 D Hockey 3 K Snooker 2 M Cricket 1 C Ludo

1. 4
2. 1
3. 2
4. 3
After arranging all the persons in alphabetical order from top to bottom :

 Floor Person Position Changed Position 7 B A 6 A B 5 L C 4 D D 3 K K 2 M L 1 C M

Hence there are only two persons D and K, whose positions remain unchanged from the original position.
