**Solutions**

**Solution (1-5):**

**S1. Ans. (a)**

**Sol.** After operation – 8462 6527 9328 3582 9496

Hence, there is one number (8462) which has more than two even digits.

**S2. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** Decreasing order – 8532 7641 9821 7432 9863

3rd digit of 2nd number = 4, 2nd digit of 5th number = 8, So, required sum = 4 + 8 = 12

**S3. Ans. (b)**

**Sol.** After operation – 18 18 20 16 26

Hence, 3472 obtains the lower sum.

**S10. Ans. (c)**

**Sol.** Given series: 2 N 2 9 Z 7 X 6 5 P 4 P 5 3 A H 7 K 4 6 G 1 7 O 2 P H 8 2

4th number from the left end = 7, 5th number from the right end = 1

Hence, there are seven letters between them.
