Directions (8-10): Study the following information and answer the given questions.

There are six boxes i.e. M, N, O, P, Q and R having different weight. Each box contains different number of balls i.e. 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 1 but not necessarily in the same order.

R contains more ball than M and weights more than O, which contains odd number of balls. Box N contains 4 balls. P weighs more than only O. M weighs more than Q and N, but less than R. Box Q contains 2 balls and weighs more than N. The difference between the number of balls of box M and N is 1 and Box M contains more than 3 balls.

Q8. Which Box contains highest no of balls?
N
M
R
O
P
Solution:
From the given definite conditions: P weighs more than only O (P>O). M weighs more than Q and N, but less than R. Box Q contains 2 balls and weighs more than N
Weight            R>M>Q>N>P>0
Now it is given that Q contains 2 balls. Box N contains 4 balls, and difference of balls of (M- N) box equal to 1 and M contains more than 3 balls. So Box M contains 5 balls. R contains more than M so R= 6 balls.
So we can deduce the following arrangement from the above given condition
R (6)>M (5)>Q (2)>N (4)>P (1/3)>O (1/3)

Q9. Which of the following combination is correct?
M-6
O-1
N-3
O-3
Either b or d
Solution:
From the given definite condition: P weighs more than only O (P>O). M weighs more than Q and N, but less than R. Box Q contains 2 balls and weighs more than N
Weight                   R>M>Q>N>P>0
Now it is given that Q contains 2 balls. Box N contains 4 balls, and difference of balls of (M- N) box equal to 1 and M contains more than 3 balls. So Box M contains 5 balls. R contains more than M so R= 6 balls.
So we can deduce the following arrangement from the above given condition
R (6)>M (5)>Q (2)>N (4)>P (1/3)>O (1/3)

Q10. If weight of the box Q is 12 kg then what may be the weight of box M?
11
11.5
14
10
9
Solution:
From the given definite condition: P weighs more than only O (P>O). M weighs more than Q and N, but less than R. Box Q contains 2 balls and weighs more than N
Weight                   R>M>Q>N>P>0
Now it is given that Q contains 2 balls. Box N contains 4 balls, and difference of balls of (M- N) box equal to 1 and M contains more than 3 balls. So Box M contains 5 balls. R contains more than M so R= 6 balls.
So we can deduce the following arrangement from the above given condition
R (6)>M (5)>Q (2)>N (4)>P (1/3)>O (1/3)

Directions (11-15): Study the following diagram and convert it into other diagrams by implementing the instructions which is given in each step to get next step.

For Step-1:

(i) In the arrangement, opposite numbers are interchanged if opposite numbers are in odd-even combination.

For Step-2:

(i) If the alphabets contain at least one vowel and one consonant or two vowels -
If the number with them is a whole square (except 1), then replace consonant with the previous letter in alphabetical series and replace vowel with the next letter in alphabetical series
If the number with them is not a whole square, then subtract 2 from the given number. And if number with them is less than 2, than it’s same as it is in previous step.
(ii) If the alphabets are two consonant –
If the number with them is a whole square, then replace consonant with the next letter in alphabetical series.
If the number with them is not a whole square, then add 2 in the given number.
