Solutions

Solution (1-5):
S1. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given series – 3 6 < 5 @ 2 # 4 1 > 3 & 7 8 ] 5 \$ 9 ! 4 6 % 8 5 { 2 7 } 8 +
Hence, there are six symbols which are immediately preceded by a prime number.

S2. Ans. (b)
Sol. Given series – 3 6 < 5 @ 2 # 4 1 > 3 & 7 8 ] 5 \$ 9 ! 4 6 % 8 5 { 2 7 } 8 +
8th symbol form the left end – !
So, 6th to the right of ! – {

S3. Ans. (e)
Sol. Given series – 3 6 < 5 @ 2 # 4 1 > 3 & 7 8 ] 5 \$ 9 ! 4 6 % 8 5 { 2 7 } 8 +
So, required sum – 2 + 4 + 1 + 3 + 7 + 8 + 5 + 9 = 39

S4. Ans. (c)
Sol. Given series – 3 6 < 5 @ 2 # 4 1 > 3 & 7 8 ] 5 \$ 9 ! 4 6 % 8 5 { 2 7 } 8 +
After dropping – 6 < @ 2 # 4 > & 8 ] \$ ! 4 6 % 8 { 2 } 8 +
4th number from the right end – 6
So, 5th to the left of 6 – 8

S5. Ans. (c)
Sol. Given series – 3 6 < 5 @ 2 # 4 1 > 3 & 7 8 ] 5 \$ 9 ! 4 6 % 8 5 { 2 7 } 8 +
Hence, there are three numbers which are immediately preceded by an even number.

Solutions(6-8):
Sol. Height – U/R > R/U > P > Q > T > S
Weight – T > Q > R > P > S > U

S6. Ans. (c)
S7. Ans. (e)
S8. Ans. (e) Solution (11-15):
Sol. In each code, the number is the highest number representation of the letter in the word as per alphabetical series.
The letter is the alphabet (in the alphabetical series) of the number of letters in the word. Example: If there are four letters in the word, 4th letter in the alphabetical series is D
For example: ‘Profile’
The letter with the highest value in alphabetical series is R, which represents 18.
There are seven letters in the word, so 7th letter in the alphabetical series is G.
Therefore, the code for ‘profile’ is 18G
