**Directions (1-5): Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions: **

Twelve players are sitting in two parallel rows each containing six players in such way that they are equidistant from each other. In row 1- S, T, U, V, W and X are sitting and facing North. In row 2- J, K, L, M, N and O are sitting and facing South, but not necessarily in the same order. Each player who sits in first row faces another player of the second row.

Three players sit between U and V. The one who faces V sits third to the right of L. M faces the one who sits third to the right of S but does not face U. Immediate neighbor of K faces S. Only one player sits between J and N, who faces the one who sits at the immediate left of W. Neither W nor X faces L. O does not sit at any of the extreme ends.

**Solutions**

**S11 Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** After interchange – 268 348 586 955 497

So, second lowest number = 348. So, 439 is the answer.

**S12. Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** After rearrangement – 962 943 875 965 984

So, 857 is lowest number.

**S13. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** After rearrangement – 269 349 578 569 489

So, 857 is the answer.

**S14. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** After interchange – 926 934 758 695 849

So, 9 will be the second digit of the lowest number.

**S15. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** Result = 439 – 596/2 = 141.
