Solutions

Solutions(6-10):
S6. Ans. (b)
Sol. Given series – 5 H K 8 2 L P 7 D W F A I Z 31 5 G Q W R X T Z 4 9 6 M N
Hence, there is only one such number which is immediately preceded by prime number.

S7. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given series – 5 H K 8 2 L P 7 D W F A I Z 31 5 G Q W R X T Z 4 9 6 M N
After removing – 5 H 8 2 L P 7 D W F A I Z 31 5 G Q W R X T 4 9 6 M N
So, 15th element from the left end = 1

S8. Ans. (c)
Sol. Given series – 5 H K 8 2 L P 7 D W F A I Z 31 5 G Q W R X T Z 4 9 6 M N
Sixth alphabet from the left end = W
Eighth alphabet from the right end = Q
Hence, there are five alphabets between W and Q.

S9. Ans. (c)
Sol. Given series – 5 H K 8 2 L P 7 D W F A I Z 31 5 G Q W R X T Z 4 9 6 M N
So, required sum = 8 + 2 + 4 + 6 = 20.

S10. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given series – 5 H K 8 2 L P 7 D W F A I Z 31 5 G Q W R X T Z 4 9 6 M N
16th element from the left end = 1
So, 7th element to the right of 1 = T
