Solution:
1). Seventh to the right of eighteenth from the right end = 18 – 7 = 11th from right end = \$

2). New arrangement
W 1 U % 4 J A # 7 M T R I 9 B H 3 E \$ 9 F Q 5 D G 6 R S P
“U %”, “A #” and “E \$”

3). R – 2 = W ; R + 2 = 4
5 – 2 = F ; 5 + 2 = G
9 + 2 = Q ; 9 - 2 = A
3 – 2 = B ; 3 + 2 = \$
7 – 2 = E ; 7 + 2 = T
So 9QA is not belong to that group

4).  Eighth to the left of twentieth from the right end = 8 + 20 = 28th from right end = 1

5). New arrangement is
W 1 R % 4 J E # 7 M T U I 9 P S U 6 G D 5 Q F 9 \$ A 3 H B
Fifth to the right of twelfth from the left end = 5 + 12 = 17th from left end = U
