.
Into and onto are prepositions of motion, i.e., they require a verb of motion:

The dog jumped onto the table and into the soup tureen.

The verb in our test question, live, is a verb of location, and up the hill is a location:

I live down the road and he lives up the mountain.

Sorry, but it's wrong. Above the hill is 'in the sky' perhaps; over the hill is 'on the other side of the hill' and would make more sense.

Then how would I know that which one is appropriate.
I mean if there will be just two options: on and up.

Please clear my confusion b/w on and up.

Thanks.

'On' is not an option on this test question. Both are probably appropriate in most situations, though 'on' suggests 'at the top' and 'up' suggests 'somewhere en route to the top'.
