Solutions

S1. Ans. (a)
Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 20. So, m = 20.
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 97.

S2. Ans. (c)
Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 81. So, K = 81
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 26.
Hence, required sum = 81+ 26 = 107.

S3. Ans. (b)
Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 234.
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 107.
Hence, required difference = 234 – 107 = 127.

S4. Ans. (c)
Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 155.
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 104.
Hence, required sum = 155 + 104 = 259.

S5. Ans. (d)
Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 23.
In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 40.
Hence, required multiplication = 23 x 40 = 920.

Solution (6-10):
Sol. Every code has a number, alphabet and a special character.
The alphabet in each code is the 3rd alphabet from the right end of each word.
The number is decided such that if the word has even number of letters we subtract 3 from the number of letters, else if the number of letters is odd we add 3 to it.
Symbols: The words starting with ‘e’ are coded with #
R-@
H-&
M-%
Y – +
W – *

S6. Ans. (c)
S7. Ans. (a)
S8. Ans. (c)
S9. Ans. (c)
S10. Ans. (a)

Solution (11-15):
Sol.
The given code comprises a letter, symbol and a number.
The letter in the code is obtained after the second letter in the word from the left end is changed to the immediate previous letter of that letter in alphabetical series.
The number in the code is twice the number of vowels in the word.
The symbol in the code corresponds to the second letter from the right end.

S11. Ans. (a)
S12. Ans. (b)
S13. Ans. (a)
S14. Ans. (b)
S15. Ans. (a)
