**Solutions**

**Solutions (1-5):**

**S1. Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** The required sum = (3 x 3) + (7 x 3) + (7 x 3) + (6 x 3) + (5 x 3) + (5 x 3) = 99

Hence, the required answer is ‘99’.

**S2. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** After addition and subtraction – 503 667 347 466 925 745

Hence, the required answer is ‘587’.

**S3. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** After interchange – 243 857 627 836 485 665

The required sum – 836 + 243 = 1079

**S4 Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** After writing in ascending order – 234 578 267 368 458 566

Hence, the required answer is ‘665’.
