**Q5. If all the digits in each of the numbers are arranged in descending order within the number from left to right then which of the following will be the second lowest number?**

(a) 369

(b) 717

(c) 922

(d) 625

(e) 434

**Solution (1-5):**

**S1. Ans.(a)**

**Sol**. 4*4=16

S2. Ans.(e)

Sol.526 is the third lowest number after arranging the first and last digit of each of the numbers

Sum of first and second digit= 5+2=7

**S3. Ans.(e)**

**Sol.**833 is the highest number

Required difference = 8-3=5

**S4. Ans.(e)**

**Sol.**first digit of the highest number = 9

Third digit of the second lowest number = 4

So, 9/4 = 2.25

**S5. Ans.(d)**

**Sol.**
