Solutions

S1. Ans. (b)
Sol. Given series: W U 5 F 6 J K 9 A 3 C E 7 8 Q O 1 2 Z 4 P D A
Hence, there are two vowels (O, A) are to the right of 8.

S2. Ans. (c)
Sol. Given series: W U 5 F 6 J K 9 A 3 C E 7 8 Q O 1 2 Z 4 P D A
Hence, there are three odd numbers (5, 9, 3) which are immediately preceded and immediately succeeded by an alphabet in the given arrangement.

S3. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given series: W U 5 F 6 J K 9 A 3 C E 7 8 Q O 1 2 Z 4 P D A
Highest number = 9, Lowest number = 1
So, required difference = 9 – 1 = 8

S4. Ans. (b)
Sol. Given series – W U 5 F 6 J K 9 A 3 C E 7 8 Q O 1 2 Z 4 P D A
7th element from the left end = K. So, 10th to the right of K = 1
Hence, 1 is the correct answer.

S5. Ans. (b)
Sol. Given series – W U 5 F 6 J K 9 A 3 C E 7 8 Q O 1 2 Z 4 P D A
5th number from the right end = 7, 4th number from the left end = 3
So, required sum = 7 + 3 = 10

Solution (6-8):
Sol. S6. Ans. (a)
S7. Ans. (a)
S8. Ans. (d)

Solution (9-10):
Sol. S9. Ans. (d)
S10. Ans. (d)

S11. Ans. (a)
Sol. I. K > T – True
II. O > Q – False

S12. Ans. (b)
Sol. I. G < N – False
II. T < Q – True

S13. Ans. (c)
Sol. I. L > N – False
II. Q ≤ N – False

S14. Ans. (b)
Sol. I. M < V – False
II. X < U – True

S15. Ans. (e)
Sol. I. E > Y – True
II. K < E – True #### Congratulations! Download Hindu Review of October 2021: Free PDF
