Solutions

Solution (6-8):
Sol. Series- 5 # 2 I Q T W 7 P K 6 @ 2 N Y Z & € C 3 W O ! 9 * E
STEP I- 5 # 2 Q T W 7 K 6 @ 2 Y Z & € C 3 W O ! 9 * E P N I
STEP II- 5 # 2 Q T W 7 K 6 @ 2 Y X & € C 3 W M ! 9 * E P N I
STEP III- 5 2 # Q T W 7 K 6 2 @ Y X & € C 3 W M 9 ! * E P N I

S6. Ans. (c)
Sol. 5 2 # Q T W 7 K 6 2 @ Y X & € C 3 W M 9 ! * E P N I
Hence, there are five symbols between 6 and E.

S7. Ans. (c)
Sol. 5 2 # Q T W 7 K 6 2 @ Y X & € C 3 W M 9 ! * E P N I
Hence, there are three letters immediately followed by an odd number.

S8. Ans. (c)
Sol. 5 2 # Q T W 7 K 6 2 @ Y X & € C 3 W M 9 ! * E P N I
Second even number from right end = 6
Sixth number from left end = 3
Hence, required sum = 6 + 3 = 9.

Solution (9-10):
S9. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given series – 2 D E 3 A 5 T 4 U 6 I 8 7 P W A 9 E 2 Q 3 P 5 4 D 2 E 3
Hence, there are six letters which are immediately followed by an odd number in the given series.

S10. Ans. (b)
Sol. Given series – 2 D E 3 A 5 T 4 U 6 I 8 7 P W A 9 E 2 Q 3 P 5 4 D 2 E 3
