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
