S6. Ans. (c)
S7. Ans. (e)
S8. Ans. (e)
S9. Ans. (d)
S10. Ans. (b)

S11. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given Series = 759 594 396 444 372 423
Resultant = 5 ÷ 3 = 1.6

S12. Ans. (a)
Sol. After subtraction = 759 593 395 333 371 313
Hence, two numbers appear more than once within the number.

S13. Ans. (b)
Sol. Given Series: 759 594 396 444 372 423
After rearrangement = 372 396 423 444 594 759
Required difference = 594 – 423 = 171.

S14. Ans. (c)
Sol. Given Series: 759 594 396 444 372 423
After adding 1 = 859 694 496 544 472 523
After interchange = 958 496 694 445 274 325
So, 759 is the largest number.

S15. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given Series: 759 594 396 444 372 423
After interchange = 579 954 936 444 732 243
So, 423 is the lowest number.
