**Solutions**

**S1. Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** Given series – 7 @ 8 5 # 4 7 1 % 2 & 8 0 1 2 > 6 7 ? 1 2 ! 5 9 3

Hence, there are four such odd numbers are immediately followed by a symbol.

**S2. Ans. (a)**

**Sol.** Given series – 7 @ 8 5 # 4 7 1 % 2 & 8 0 1 2 > 6 7 ? 1 2 ! 5 9 3

Hence, there are five such even numbers are to the left of >.

**S3. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** Given series – 7 @ 8 5 # 4 7 1 % 2 & 8 0 1 2 > 6 7 ? 1 2 ! 5 9 3

Required sum of all the numbers which are immediately preceded by a symbol = (8 + 4 + 2 + 8 + 6 + 1 + 5) = 34.

**S4. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** Given series – 7 @ 8 5 # 4 7 1 % 2 & 8 0 1 2 > 6 7 ? 1 2 ! 5 9 3

10th element from the right end = >

11th element to the left of > = #

Hence, # is the correct answer.

**S5. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** Given series – 7 @ 8 5 # 4 7 1 % 2 & 8 0 1 2 > 6 7 ? 1 2 ! 5 9 3

After dropping symbols – 7 8 5 4 7 1 2 8 0 1 2 6 7 1 2 5 9 3

4th element from the left end = 4

6th element to the right of 4 = 1

Hence, 1 is the correct answer.

**S6. Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** Given series – 713 486 635 562 875

Sum of 2nd and 3rd digits:

713 = 1+3 = 4

486 = 8 + 6 = 14

635 = 3 + 5 = 8

562 = 6 + 2 = 8

875 = 7 + 5 = 12

Hence, only 12 is divisible by 3. Hence, 875 is the correct answer.

**S7. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** Given series – 713 486 635 562 875

After interchanging 2nd and 3rd digits – 731 468 653 526 857

Hence, three odd numbers formed.

**S8. Ans. (d)**

**Sol.** Given series – 713 486 635 562 875

Digits are arranged in Ascending order – 137 468 356 256 578

So, 578 is highest. Hence, 875 is the correct answer.

**S9. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** Given series – 713 486 635 562 875

After interchanging 1st and 3rd digits– 317 **684 536** 265 **578**

So, three even numbers formed.

**S10. Ans. (e)**

**Sol.** Given series – 713 486 635 562 875

Digits are arranged in Descending order – 731 864 653 652 875

So, 653 is second lowest number. Hence, 635 is the correct answer.
