**Direction (6-10): There are two rows given and to find out the resultant of a particular row we need to follow the following steps: –**

**Step 1:**If an even number is followed by an odd number then the resultant will be the addition of both the numbers.

**Step 2:**If an odd number is followed by a perfect square then the resultant will be the difference of that square number and the odd number.

**Step 3:**If an odd number is followed by another odd number (but not a perfect square) then the resultant will be the addition of both the numbers.

**Step 4:**If an odd number is followed by an even number (but not a perfect square) then the resultant comes by multiplying the numbers.

**Step 5:**If an even number is followed by another even number then the resultant will be the division of first number by the second number.

**Q6. Find the sum of two rows**

**Â Â Â Â 20Â Â Â Â Â Â 4Â Â Â Â Â 5**

**Â Â Â Â 17Â Â Â Â Â Â 12Â Â Â Â Â 11**

(a) 178

(b) 205

(c) 223

(d) 225

(e) None of these

**S6. Ans(d)****Sol.Â**

For row-1:

An even number is followed by another even number = 20/4 = 5

An odd number is followed by another odd number (but not a perfect square) = 5 + 5 = 10

For row-2:

An odd number is followed by an even number (but not a perfect square) = 17×12 =204

An even number is followed by an odd number = 204 + 11 = 215

The sum is= 215+10=225

**Q7. If the sum of the resultants of two rows is 18. Then find the value of X.**

**Â Â Â Â 21Â Â Â Â Â Â 9Â Â Â Â Â 6**

**Â Â Â Â 50Â Â Â Â Â Â 2Â Â Â Â Â X**

(a) 16

(b) 12

(c) 9

(d) 15

(e) None of these

**S7. Ans(c)****Sol.**

For row -1:

An odd number is followed by a perfect square = 21-9 = 12

An even number is followed by a even number = 12/6 = 2

For row – 2:

An even number is followed by another even number = 50/2 = 25

The resultant of row-2 is = 18-2 = 16

Then value of X must be = 9

**Q8. Find the difference between the resultant of first and second row.**

**Â Â Â Â Â 25Â Â Â Â Â Â 7Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 16**

**Â Â Â Â Â Â 8Â Â Â Â Â 17Â Â Â Â Â Â 12**

(a) 300

(b) 298

(c) 302

(d) 287

(e) None of these

**S8. Ans(b)**

**Sol.**

Â For row â€“ 1:

An odd number is followed by another odd number (but not a perfect square) = 25 + 7 = 32

An even number is followed by an even number = 32/16 = 2

For row â€“ 2:

An even number is followed by an odd number = 8 + 17 = 25

An odd number is followed by an even number (but not a perfect square) = 25×12 = 300

The difference of row-1 and row-2= 300 â€“ 2 =298

**Q9. Find the multiplication of the resultant of first and second row.**

**Â Â Â Â Â 51Â Â Â Â Â Â 21Â Â Â Â Â Â 4**

**Â Â Â Â Â 16Â Â Â Â Â Â 17Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 5**

(a) 610

(b) 684

(c) 722

(d) 720

(e) None of these

**Â Â**

**S9. Ans(b)**

**Sol.**Â For row â€“ 1:

An odd number is followed by another odd number (but not a perfect square) = 51 + 21= 72

An even number is followed by another even number = 72/4 = 18

For row â€“ 2:

An even number is followed by an odd number = 16 + 17 = 33

An odd number is followed by another odd number (but not a perfect square) = 33 + 5 = 38

The multiplication of row-1 and row-2= 18 x 38 = 684

**Q10. Find the sum of the resultant of first and second row.**

**Â Â Â Â Â 7Â Â Â Â Â 8Â Â Â Â Â Â 13**

**Â Â Â Â Â 5Â Â Â Â Â Â 16Â Â Â Â Â 9**

(a) 69

(b) 71

(c) 68

(d) 73

(e) None of these

**S10. Ans(b)**

**Sol.**

Â For row â€“ 1:

An odd number is followed by an even number (but not a perfect square) = 7 x 8 = 56

An even number is followed by an odd number = 56 + 13 = 69

For row â€“ 2:

An odd number is followed by a perfect square =16-5 = 11

An odd number is followed by a perfect square =11 –Â 9 = 2

The multiplication of row-1 and row-2= 69 + 2 = 71
