**Solutions**

**Solutions (11-15):**

**Sol.** Different logic is applied in each step.

Step 1: In all the numbers, all the odd digits are increased by 1 and all the even digits are decreased by 1.

Step II: The place of 1st and last digit is interchanged.

Step III. The 1st and 2nd digits of each number are multiplied, similarly the 3 and 4 digits are multiplied and the product of these two digits each are written side by side, making it a 4 digit number (Ex: 1 is written as 01)

Step IV: Remove 1st and 3rd digit of each number, 2nd and 4th digit of the number is written.

Step V: The sum of the square of each digit of the number is taken.

Step VI: Add the digits of each number and resultant (place value) is replaced by English alphabet. Ex- if the sum of the digits is 8 then it will be replaced by H.
