**Solutions**

**S1. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** Three – 7 $ 1, 3 $ 7, 7 & 5

**S2. Ans. (a)**

**Sol.** Required sum = 2 + 4 + 8 + 6 + 4 + 6 = 30.

**S3. Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** Tenth element from right end – &; So, tenth element to the left of & – 2

**S4. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** Required sum = 2 + 3 + 3 + 7 = 15

**S5. Ans. (a)**

**Sol.** One – 3 4 8

**S6. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** After operation – 215 526 269 843 542

So, third highest number = 526. Hence, 625 is the correct answer.

**S7. Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** After operation – 125 256 269 348 245

So, second lowest number = 245. Hence, 245 is the correct answer.

**S8. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** After multiplication of 1st and 2nd digit in each number, 512 will give the smallest resultant.

**S9. Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** After operation – 152 265 692 438 425

New series – 153 266 693 439 426; So, there are three odd numbers.

**S10. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** Third digit of lowest number – 5, Second digit of highest number – 6

Required multiplication = 5 x 6 = 30.

**S11. Ans. (a)**

**Sol.** I. X > S – True

II. R < W – False

**S12. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** I. C > G – False

II. H < E – True

**S13. Ans. (e)**

**Sol.** I. P < K – True

II. L > O – True

**S14. Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** From option (d) we get U < V and X > Y are definitely true.

**S15. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** From option (c) we get E ≥ H and F > J are definitely true.
