**Directions (1-4): There are two rows given and to find out the resultant of a particular row, we need to follow the particular steps: **

Step I: If an even number is followed by an odd number, then resultant will be the difference of both the numbers.

Step II: If an odd number is followed by an even number (but not square of any number), then the resultant will be the addition of both the numbers.

Step III: If an odd number is followed by a square number (but not odd number), then the resultant will be the multiplication of both the numbers.

Step IV: If an even number is followed by another even number which is greater than 8, then the resultant will be the difference of both the numbers.

Step V: If an odd number is followed by another odd number, then the resultant will be the smallest number among the both the numbers.

**Solutions**

**Solution (1-4):**

**S1. Ans. (d)**

Sol. In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 60.

In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 43.

Hence, required difference = 60 – 43 = 17.

**S2. Ans. (a)**

**Sol.** In row1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 8.

In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 23.

Hence, required multiplication = 8 x 23 = 184.

**S3. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 19.

In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 17.

Hence, required sum = 19 + 17 = 36.

**S4. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 11. So, Y = 11

In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 11.

**Solution (5-8):**

**S5. Ans. (a)**

**Sol.** In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 70.

In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 64.

Hence, required difference = 70 – 64 = 6.

**S6. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 92.

In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 90.

Hence, required sum = 92 + 90 = 182.

**S7. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 40.

In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 160.

Hence, required half of the sum = 40 + 160 = 200/2 = 100.

**S8. Ans. (a)**

**Sol.** In row 1, according to the given step, resultant of row 1 is 39.

In row 2, according to the given step, resultant of row 2 is 63.

Hence, required multiplication = 39 x 63 = 2457.
