Explanations about why the above numbers are lucky or you should avoid:
 
Relationship between the floor number and the five-element
The floor number usually has a close relation with the five-element. The Chinese five elements refer to Metal, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth. Hereunder is the relationship between the floor number and the five-element. 
The first and sixth floor together with the floor number ending with 1 or 6 belongs to the Water element. 
The second and seventh floor together with the floor number ending with 2 or 7 belongs to the Fire element. 
The third and eighth floor together with the floor number ending with 3 or 8 belongs to the Wood element. 
The Fourth and ninth floor together with the floor number ending with 4 or 9 belongs to the Metal element. 
The fifth and tenth floor together with the floor number ending with 5 or 0 belongs to the Earth element. 

Each of the five elements depends on and restricts one another instead of existing independently. They go in a specific order with one generating and controlling the next. You can get the generating and controlling circles from the right illustration. 
 
Wood makes Fire burn; Fire creates Earth; Earth bears Metal; Off of Metal runs the Water; Water makes Wood grow. 
Fire melts Metal; Metal chops down Wood; Wood breaks the Earth; Earth soaks up Water and blocks its flow; Water controls Fire. 
 
So, we need to know which of the five elements you belong to and then find out which floor numbers fit you best based on the relationship between the floor number and the five-element as well as the generating and controlling circle of the five elements. 
 
In Chinese culture, each zodiac has its associated five-element. You can get the corresponding element for each zodiac sign below. 
Zodiac Sign Five Element
Monkey, Rooster Metal
Tiger, Rabbit Wood
Rat, Pig Water
Snake, Horse Fire
Ox, Dragon, Sheep, Dog Earth

After knowing your zodiac sign and the five-element you has, you could find out the floor numbers that are good for you. 
 
Take a person under the Pig sign for an example: 
 
We can get the associated five-element for him is Water from the above table.
 
Best floor numbers: Living on the 1st or 6th floor which also belongs to the Water element will be auspicious for him. As ‘off of Metal runs the Water’, the 4th and 9th floor which belong to the Metal element are also good for him. 
 
Numbers should be avoided: As ‘Earth soaks up Water and blocks its flow’, living on the 5th or 10th floor which belongs to the Earth element would be inauspicious for him. Wood absorbs water, so the 3rd or 8th which belongs to the Wood element is also the floors a Pig person should avoid. 
 
Medium floor numbers: As Water can control Fire, the pig people with the water element can live on the 2nd or the 7th floor which belongs to the Fire element.  
 
For other zodiac signs, you can use the same theory to figure out the best and unsuitable floor numbers.
