**Directions (1-5): Consider the alphanumeric string given below consisting of letters, numbers and symbols and answer the questions that follow based on the given steps: –**

**© M K 1 & N Y 6 C = 4 W Ω B T U 2 3 A R E 0 β G + S X 5 @ B O 8 V ^ % H L 9**

**Step I:** Each such symbol that is immediately preceded by a number and immediately succeeded by a letter should be placed to the left of ‘3’ (1st symbol picked from the left should be placed to the immediate left of 3, then 2nd symbol should be placed to the immediate left of 1st symbol and so on).

**Step II:** Each such number that is immediately preceded and immediately succeeded by letters should be placed to the immediate right of ‘X’ in descending order from left to right in the new series formed after step I.

Step III: Each such letter that is immediately preceded by a letter and immediately succeeded by a number should be placed to the immediate left of + in reverse alphabetical order from left to right in the new series formed after step II.

(a) L

(b) S

(c) 8

(d) U

(e) R

(a) 9

(b) G

(c) E

(d) X

(e) None of these

**Q3. If all the numbers are arranged in ascending order within the same position of numbers in the step III, then which of the following element is 20th to the left of ‘5’ after the rearrangement?**

(a) Ω

(b) W

(c) B

(d) 0

(e) None of these

(a) 14

(b) 15

(c) 16

(d) 18

(e) None of these

**Q5. What is the sum of all odd numbers which are right of A in step I?**

(a) 14

(b) 10

(c) 6

(d) 8

(e) None of these

**Directions (6-8): Study the following information and answer the questions given below: **

There is a figure provided in the question given below which consist of a square composed of four triangles. Some operations are performed to convert the input figure into the output figure.

**For Words –** If addition of the place value of all the letters of the word is divisible by 6, then the letters of the word is arranged in the English alphabetical order, but if the addition of the place value of all the letters of the word is not divisible by 6, then the letters of the word arranged in the alphabetical order after changing the vowel by its opposite letter in the English alphabet.

**For Numeric-** If addition of the given two-digit number is divisible by both 2 and 3, then number is changed by the addition of the square of each digit, but if the addition of the digits of the given two-digit number is not divisible by both 2 and 3 then the number is changed by their multiplication.

Based on the above example, find the output figure of the following input.

**Q6. Which of the following number represents the element of triangle 4 of the output figure?**

(a) 38

(b) 56

(c) 36

(d) 54

(e) None of these

**Q7. What is the difference between the digits of the triangle 2 and triangle 4 of the output figure?**

(a) 100

(b) 26

(c) 93

(d) 24

(e) None of these

**Q8. Which of the following letter represents the element of triangle 3 of the output figure?**

(a) CPPSZ

(b) CKLSZ

(c) CKPSZ

(d) CKPHZ

(e) None of these

**Q9. If all the vowels of the word ‘SCRABBLE’ are replaced by its succeeding letter according to the English alphabet and all the consonant are replaced with their previous letter according to the English alphabet and then all the letters are arranged in the alphabetical order from left to right then how many letters are there between the third letter from the left and second letter from the right in the English alphabetic series? **

(a) 11

(b) 13

(c) 14

(d) 15

(e) None of these

**Q10. How many such pairs of letters are in the word ‘INSTALLATION’, each of which has as many letters between them as in the English alphabet (both forward and backward directions)? **

(a) None

(b) Two

(c) Four

(d) Three

(e) More than four
