Solutions

S6. Ans. (c)
Sol.  If all the symbols are dropped, we will get:
A 5 D G 2 J E G N 1 7 L J 5 1 6 K P 2 4 V 5 6 2 S 5 M 6 P
Now, if starting thirteen elements are reversed, we will get:
J L 7 1 N G E J 2 G D 5 A 5 1 6 K P 2 4 V 5 6 2 S 5 M 6 P
Now, ‘G’ will be sixth element from the left end.

S7. Ans. (d)
Sol. Clearly, seven symbols are there between the eighth element from the left end which is J and tenth element from the right end which is 5.
A 5 @ D G # 2 J % \$ E G N 1 7 @ & L J 5 1 @ 6 K P & 2 \$ 4 V 5 6 @ 2 S 5 & M 6 P

S8. Ans. (c)
Sol. Third element from the left end = @
“E” is 8th to the right of “@”.
“2” is 4th to the left of “E”.

S9. Ans. (d)
Sol. If number 5 is inserted after every fifth element from the left end we will get:
A 5 @ D G 5 # 2 J % \$5 E G N 1 7 5 @ & L J 5 5 1 @ 6 K P 5 & 2 \$ 4 V 5 5 6 @ 2 S 5 5 & M 6 P 5
Clearly, now seven letters are immediately followed by 5.

S10. Ans. (a)
Sol. If all the even numbers and vowels are dropped from the series we will get:
5 @ D G # J % \$ G N 1 7 @ & L J 5 1 @ K P & \$ V 5 @ S 5 & M P
Now, if the order of elements in the series gets reversed, we will get:
P M & 5 S @ 5 V \$ & P K @ 1 5 J L & @ 7 1 N G \$ % J # G D @ 5
Now, ‘@’ is the sixth element from the left end of the arrangement. ‘G’ is the ninth element from the right end of the arrangement.
