(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.
