Solutions Solution (6-8):
Sol. Series- 5 # 2 I Q T W 7 P K 6 @ 2 N Y Z & € C 3 W O ! 9 * E
STEP I- 5 # 2 Q T W 7 K 6 @ 2 Y Z & € C 3 W O ! 9 * E P N I
STEP II- 5 # 2 Q T W 7 K 6 @ 2 Y X & € C 3 W M ! 9 * E P N I
STEP III- 5 2 # Q T W 7 K 6 2 @ Y X & € C 3 W M 9 ! * E P N I

S6. Ans. (c)
Sol. 5 2 # Q T W 7 K 6 2 @ Y X & € C 3 W M 9 ! * E P N I
Hence, there are five symbols between 6 and E.

S7. Ans. (c)
Sol. 5 2 # Q T W 7 K 6 2 @ Y X & € C 3 W M 9 ! * E P N I
Hence, there are three letters immediately followed by an odd number.

S8. Ans. (c)
Sol. 5 2 # Q T W 7 K 6 2 @ Y X & € C 3 W M 9 ! * E P N I
Second even number from right end = 6
Sixth number from left end = 3
Hence, required sum = 6 + 3 = 9.

Solution (9-12):
S9. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given series – 2 D E 3 A 5 T 4 U 6 I 8 7 P W A 9 E 2 Q 3 P 5 4 D 2 E 3
Hence, there are six letters which are immediately followed by an odd number in the given series.

S10. Ans. (b)
Sol. Given series – 2 D E 3 A 5 T 4 U 6 I 8 7 P W A 9 E 2 Q 3 P 5 4 D 2 E 3
Hence, required sum = 4 + 3 = 7.

S11. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given series – 2 D E 3 A 5 T 4 U 6 I 8 7 P W A 9 E 2 Q 3 P 5 4 D 2 E 3
Hence, there are six letters are between the seventh element from the right end and the ninth element from the left end.

S12. Ans. (a)
Sol. Given series – 2 D E 3 A 5 T 4 U 6 I 8 7 P W A 9 E 2 Q 3 P 5 4 D 2 E 3
Fifth prime number from the right end = 2
Hence, the third consonant to the left of 2 is T.

S13. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given series – 7249 4567 8452 2897 5326
After operation – 4279 6547 5482 9827 2356
So, second highest number is 6547 (4567).

S14. Ans. (c)
Sol. Given series – 7249 4567 8452 2897 5326
After operation – 2479 4567 2458 2789 2356
So, 4th lowest number is 2789 (2897).

S15. Ans. (a)
Sol. Given series – 7249 4567 8452 2897 5326
