Sub-shape objects

After spliting a shape with a rule file (using split command) i would like to trigger just a certain number of resulting elements, let say only 1 or 2. I tryied using the percent comand but i found it unreliable because if i split a shape into 10 objects and try to do something with 10% of those objects this would sometimes be 1, sometimes 3 and sometimes non of the objects.

Practical example:
My initial shape is a plot which i subdivide into footprints. I would like just one of these footprints to be a highrise and the rest 5 storie buildings (see the attachment). Idialy i should also be able to sear the position of it but that is a different topic i guess.
