**Solutions**

**Solution (1-5):**

**S1. Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** Given series – 3 6 < 5 @ 2 # 4 1 > 3 & 7 8 ] 5 $ 9 ! 4 6 % 8 5 { 2 7 } 8 +

Hence, there are six symbols which are immediately preceded by a prime number.

**S2. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** Given series – 3 6 < 5 @ 2 # 4 1 > 3 & 7 8 ] 5 $ 9 ! 4 6 % 8 5 { 2 7 } 8 +

8th symbol form the left end – !

So, 6th to the right of ! – {

**S3. Ans. (e)**

**Sol.** Given series – 3 6 < 5 @ 2 # 4 1 > 3 & 7 8 ] 5 $ 9 ! 4 6 % 8 5 { 2 7 } 8 +

So, required sum – 2 + 4 + 1 + 3 + 7 + 8 + 5 + 9 = 39

**S4. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** Given series – 3 6 < 5 @ 2 # 4 1 > 3 & 7 8 ] 5 $ 9 ! 4 6 % 8 5 { 2 7 } 8 +

After dropping – 6 < @ 2 # 4 > & 8 ] $ ! 4 6 % 8 { 2 } 8 +

4th number from the right end – 6

So, 5th to the left of 6 – 8

**S5. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** Given series – 3 6 < 5 @ 2 # 4 1 > 3 & 7 8 ] 5 $ 9 ! 4 6 % 8 5 { 2 7 } 8 +

Hence, there are three numbers which are immediately preceded by an even number.

**Solutions(6-8):**

**Sol.** Height – U/R > R/U > P > Q > T > S

Weight – T > Q > R > P > S > U
