Solutions

S1. Ans. (c)
Sol. Three – 7 \$ 1, 3 \$ 7, 7 & 5

S2. Ans. (a)
Sol. Required sum = 2 + 4 + 8 + 6 + 4 + 6 = 30.

S3. Ans. (d)
Sol. Tenth element from right end – &; So, tenth element to the left of & – 2

S4. Ans. (b)
Sol. Required sum = 2 + 3 + 3 + 7 = 15

S5. Ans. (a)
Sol. One – 3 4 8

S6. Ans. (b)
Sol. After operation – 215 526 269 843 542
So, third highest number = 526. Hence, 625 is the correct answer.

S7. Ans. (d)
Sol. After operation – 125 256 269 348 245
So, second lowest number = 245. Hence, 245 is the correct answer.

S8. Ans. (c)
Sol. After multiplication of 1st and 2nd digit in each number, 512 will give the smallest resultant.

S9. Ans. (d)
Sol. After operation – 152 265 692 438 425
New series – 153 266 693 439 426; So, there are three odd numbers.

S10. Ans. (b)
Sol. Third digit of lowest number – 5, Second digit of highest number – 6
Required multiplication = 5 x 6 = 30.
