**Solutions**

**S1. Ans. (e)**

**Sol.** First, we have to find the numbers which are divisible by 3 but not by 6. The numbers are are 789 and 279.

So, difference between these numbers is 510.

**S2. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** When all the digits within the number are arranged in decreasing order, we get:

662 987 654 763 972

If the digit at unit’s place is odd, 1 must be added to it i.e.,

662 988 654 764 972

On adding the digits at unit’s place of all the numbers, we get 20 (i.e., 2 + 8 + 4 + 4 + 2).

**S3. Ans. (a)**

**Sol.** On subtracting 1 from all even numbers, we get: 265 789 455 63 279.

On adding digit at unit’s place, we get 31 (5 + 9 + 5 + 3 + 9).

**S4. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** On adding 3 to every even digit which is less than 7, we get:

599 789 759 793 579

Arranging the numbers, 579 < 599 < 759 < 789 < 793

Clearly, we can see that 789 is the second highest number.

**S5. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** When all the numbers are arranged in such a way that even digits are arranged first then the odd digits are arranged in increasing order, we get: 266 879 465 637 279

On arranging the numbers, we get: 266 < 279 < 465 < 637 < 879

Clearly, 456 (465 in the required number) is the third lowest number.

**S6. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** New Arrangement: A D @ 7 M Q % 5 F $ 6 K L & 4 R N # U 5

So, third element from the right end = #

**S7. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** A @ D 7 M Q % 5 $ F 6 K L & 4 R # N U 5

So, RNU is the correct answer.

**S8. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** New Arrangement: A D 7 M Q 5 F 6 K L 4 R N U 5

2nd to the left of the 12th from the right = 14th from the right end

So, 14th from the right end = D

**S9. Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** New Arrangement: A @ 7 E M Q % 5 $ 6 G K L & 4 R # N 5 V

4th element from the left end = E

11th element from the right end = 6

**S10. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** Given Series: A @ D 7 M Q % 5 $ F 6 K L & 4 R # N U 5

D and F are two such letters which are preceded by symbol and followed by number.

**S11. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** Given series: % A 7 O & 8 ^ 4 Y 5 * 1 9 T ! C # 2 $ E

The symbols and digits interchanged are %-7, &-8, ^-4, *-5, !-1, #-9, $-2

So, the new sequence is 7 A % O 8 & 4 ^ Y * 5 ! # T 1 C 9 $ 2 E

14th element from right is 4

**S12. Ans. (a)**

**Sol.** Given series: % A 7 O & 8 ^ 4 Y 5 * 1 9 T ! C # 2 $ E

Element that is 9th from the right is 1 and 7th to the left of 1 is &.

So, (a.) & is the answer.

**S13. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** Given series: % A 7 O & 8 ^ 4 Y 5 * 1 9 T ! C # 2 $ E

Only 4 is preceded by a symbol and followed by a letter. So, (b) is the answer.

**S14. Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** Given series: % A 7 O & 8 ^ 4 Y 5 * 1 9 T ! C # 2 $ E

If the symbols are removed, the new sequence is A 7 O 8 4 Y 5 1 9 T C 2 E

So, 9 is 9th from the left end.

**S15. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** Given series: % A 7 O & 8 ^ 4 Y 5 * 1 9 T ! C # 2 $ E

New Sequence % A 9 O & 8 ^ 7 Y 5 * 4 2 T ! C # 1 $ E

So, only 8 and 5 have unchanged positions.
