Solutions
1). \$, 2, F and P are nth, (n +2)th, (n-1)th and (n +4)th elements respectively from the left end of the given sequence. ☸, 9, P, £ are mth, (m + 2)th, (m -1)th and (m+4)th elements respectively from the left end of the given sequence. Similarly,
8, E, 6 and A are xth, (x + 2)th, (x - 1)th and (x +4)th elements respectively from the left end of the given sequence. The above relationship is found only in the option a),ieT?R6.
2).  Look at the underlined number. F\$=2 G P ☸ L 9 Q £ @ 7 R T U ? © 6 8 B E β A 3 # 4 J K M
3). 2; Look at the underlined symbols.
F\$= 2 G P L 9 Q £ @ 7 R T U ? © 6 8 B E βA 3 # 4 J K M There are only three such symbols.
4).  When all the symbols in the given arrangement are removed then the new sequence of the elements remaining will be as follows:
F 2 G P L 9 Q 7 R T U 6 8 B E A 3 4 J K M
Now, we have to find out (14 - 7 =) 7th element from the right end.
5).  When all the numbers in the given arrangement are removed then the new sequence of the elements remaining will be as follows:
F\$ = G P ☸ L Q £ @ R T U ? © B E β A # J K M Now, we have to fmd out the element which is exactly midway between G and # in the above sequence. Hence, the required element is 'T'.
