Solutions (1-5):

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. After arranging all the digits in ascending order within each number--
358    569   247    136   146
So, the fourth lowest number will be 583.

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. After interchanging all digits according to the given condition in the question---
358     965     742     136     641
So, the lowest number will be 361.

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. After interchanging first and third digits according to the given condition in the question—
