maybe he was too short to reach higher than the 7th button and if someone was in the elevator with him he could ask them to press it for him. and if it had been raining he would have his umbrella with him so he could reach higher with the umbrella

Another dumb riddle. The question asks "Can you explain why?" Answer? "Yes" or "no." You can or you can't. The question should just state "Why?"

He is a dwarf and can not reach the 10th floor button unless he has an umbrella or some one else to reach it for him.

Both the conditions
1.someone else is with him.
2.it is raining outside.
are important.
If he is alone he will go till the seventh floor and then walk the rest of the way.
This means only when he is accompanied with someone(or its raining outside) he can go directly to his 10th floor apartment.
This has two possibilities
1. He is very sociable(Party animal!) and invites anyone/everyone to his apartment for a party.
2. He cannot go to his place if he is alone.(not equipped)

Assuming the lift push-buttons start from 1 to 10 from bottom upwards, the answer can be,
He has a disability( in a wheelchair or short in stature !)
in which case the other person will punch the 10 th floor button. In case of rain we assume he will carry an umbrella by which he might be able to punch the key.
