Solutions

S1. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given series – 7 @ 8 5 # 4 7 1 % 2 & 8 0 1 2 > 6 7 ? 1 2 ! 5 9 3
Hence, there are four such odd numbers are immediately followed by a symbol.

S2. Ans. (a)
Sol. Given series – 7 @ 8 5 # 4 7 1 % 2 & 8 0 1 2 > 6 7 ? 1 2 ! 5 9 3
Hence, there are five such even numbers are to the left of >.

S3. Ans. (c)
Sol. Given series – 7 @ 8 5 # 4 7 1 % 2 & 8 0 1 2 > 6 7 ? 1 2 ! 5 9 3
Required sum of all the numbers which are immediately preceded by a symbol = (8 + 4 + 2 + 8 + 6 + 1 + 5) = 34.

S4. Ans. (b)
Sol. Given series – 7 @ 8 5 # 4 7 1 % 2 & 8 0 1 2 > 6 7 ? 1 2 ! 5 9 3
10th element from the right end = >
11th element to the left of > = #
Hence, # is the correct answer.

S5. Ans. (c)
Sol. Given series – 7 @ 8 5 # 4 7 1 % 2 & 8 0 1 2 > 6 7 ? 1 2 ! 5 9 3
After dropping symbols – 7 8 5 4 7 1 2 8 0 1 2 6 7 1 2 5 9 3
4th element from the left end = 4
6th element to the right of 4 = 1
Hence, 1 is the correct answer.

S6. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given series – 713 486 635 562 875
Sum of 2nd and 3rd digits:
713 = 1+3 = 4
486 = 8 + 6 = 14
635 = 3 + 5 = 8
562 = 6 + 2 = 8
875 = 7 + 5 = 12
Hence, only 12 is divisible by 3. Hence, 875 is the correct answer.

S7. Ans. (b)
Sol. Given series – 713 486 635 562 875
After interchanging 2nd and 3rd digits – 731 468 653 526 857
Hence, three odd numbers formed.

S8. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given series – 713 486 635 562 875
Digits are arranged in Ascending order – 137 468 356 256 578
So, 578 is highest. Hence, 875 is the correct answer.

S9. Ans. (b)
Sol. Given series – 713 486 635 562 875
After interchanging 1st and 3rd digits– 317 684 536 265 578
So, three even numbers formed.

S10. Ans. (e)
Sol. Given series – 713 486 635 562 875
Digits are arranged in Descending order – 731 864 653 652 875
So, 653 is second lowest number. Hence, 635 is the correct answer.

S11. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given series – Z D I @ Q O 1 B \$ L 8 K C 4 G 3 Y X & W 9 # 5 S 2 A % 7 H 6
According to question, there are four symbols that are immediately preceded by an alphabet.

S12. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given series – Z D I @ Q O 1 B \$ L 8 K C 4 G 3 Y X & W 9 # 5 S 2 A % 7 H 6
Hence, there are seven numbers that are immediately preceded by an alphabet.

S13. Ans. (b)
Sol. Given series – Z D I @ Q O 1 B \$ L 8 K C 4 G 3 Y X & W 9 # 5 S 2 A % 7 H 6
First symbol from right end = %
First symbol from left end = @
Hence, required sum of the numbers between % and @= (1 + 8 + 4 + 3 + 9 + 5 + 2) = 32.

S14. Ans. (e)
Sol. Given series – Z D I @ Q O 1 B \$ L 8 K C 4 G 3 Y X & W 9 # 5 S 2 A % 7 H 6
16th element from the left end = 3
9th element to the left of 3 = 1
Hence, 1 is the correct answer.

S15. Ans. (a)
Sol. Given series – Z D I @ Q O 1 B \$ L 8 K C 4 G 3 Y X & W 9 # 5 S 2 A % 7 H 6
So, there is one vowel which is immediately followed by a symbol and preceded by consonant.
