**Direction (11-15): Read the following information carefully to answer the questions based on it. **

Five persons B, L, T, K and D are sitting around a pentagon shaped table (on each of the corner), not necessarily in the same order. Some of them are facing towards the centre while others are facing away from the centre. The profession of each one of them is different viz., doctor, engineer, teacher, manager and actor, not necessarily in the same order.

D who is not an actor and B who is an engineer, faces the same direction. B sits second to the right of the teacher. K is an immediate neighbour of T who is facing towards the centre. T is not sitting second to the right of L. D sits second to the left of K who faces away from the centre. D sits exactly between the doctor and the manager. T is not the doctor. The engineer sits second to the right of D.

**Solutions**

**Solutions (1-5):**

**S1. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** Given Series – 437 341 669 492 136

After operation – 347 431 669 942 316

Second digit of the largest number – 4 (942)

Third digit of the smallest number – 6 (316)

So, required multiplication – 4 x 6 – 24

**S2. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** Given Series – 437 341 669 492 136

Sum – 14 8 21 15 10

After adding all the digits of every number, we find that 341’s sum is be smallest.

**S3. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** Given Series – 437 341 669 492 136

After removing first number – 37 41 69 92 36

So, there are two numbers (69, 36) which are divisible by 3.

**S4. Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** Given Series – 437 341 669 492 136

After operation – 347 134 669 249 136

So, third largest number – 492

**S5. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** Given Series – 437 341 669 492 136

Second digit of the highest number – 6

Second digit of the lowest number – 3

So, required division – 2

**Solution (6-10):**

**S6. Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** Given Series – 7 H β 5 % T I M 6 $ E 8 G 3 S N @ A # C D 4 8 U & D

After dropping – H β % T M $ G S N @ # C D D

Therefore, option (d) is correct.

**S7. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** Given Series – 7 H β 5 % T I M 6 $ E 8 G 3 S N @ A # C D 4 8 U & D

Required reversal – S 3 G 8 E $ 6 M I T % 5 β H 7 N @ A # C D 4 8 U & D

Therefore, option (c) is the correct answer.

**S8. Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** Given Series – 7 H β 5 % T I M 6 $ E 8 G 3 S N @ A # C D 4 8 U & D

After changing – 7 I β 5 % U J N 6 $ F 8 H 3 T O @ B # D E 4 8 V & E

Therefore, option (d) is the correct answer.

**S9. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** Given Series – 7 H β 5 % T I M 6 $ E 8 G 3 S N @ A # C D 4 8 U & D

Therefore, option (c) is the correct answer.

**S10. Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** Given Series – 7 H β 5 % T I M 6 $ E 8 G 3 S N @ A # C D 4 8 U & D

Therefore, option (d) is the correct answer.
