Step 1 โ Each such alphabet that is immediately preceded by an even digit and immediately followed by a special character is to be placed between โ&โ and โ%โ in the alphabetical order.

Step 2 โ After completing stepโ1, each such special character that is immediately preceded by a digit and immediately followed by another special character is to be placed immediate right of โ1โ. (First symbol from left should be in the left and so on).

Directions (5-8): Study the given information carefully and answer the following questions.

Seven persons P, Q, R, S, T, U and V are born in a month of March in different years. Their ages are calculated on the same month with respect to 2018.

Note: If it is mentioned that a personโs age is considered as the last two digits of another personโs birth year, then it will be at any sequence. For example, if the age of X is considered as last two digit of birth year of Y which is 1945; then the age of X might be either 45 or 54.

None of the persons were born before 1974 and after 2008.

P was born on 1998.The difference between the age of P and T is 5 years. Rโs age is equal to the last two digit of birth year of T and his age is not an even number. Uโs age is a square number between Tโs age and Rโs age. Sโs age is half of the age of Vโs age whose age is last two digit of Uโs birth year. The sum of ages of P and S is two more than that of the age of Q.

e) None of these

10) Which of the following number is ninth to the left of eleventh from the right end?

a) 3

b) 6

c) 2

d) 1

e) None of these

Directions (1-4):

We have:

3 U @ 4 D ยฃ ยฅ G 2 \$ K # E 8 R & % P 9 1 6 B ยต ^ A 7

Step 1: Such letter that is immediately preceded by an even digit and immediately followed by a special character.

3 U @ 4 D ยฃ ยฅ G 2 \$ K # E 8 R & % P 9 1 6 B ยต ^ A 7

Thus, three such alphabets are possible ร  D, R & B.

After placing all such alphabets between โ&โ and โ%โ in the alphabetical order, we get:

3 U @ 4 ยฃ ยฅ G 2 \$ K # E 8 & B D R % P 9 1 6 ยต ^ A 7

Step 2: Such special character that is immediately preceded by a digit and immediately followed by another special character.

3 U @ 4 ยฃ ยฅ G 2 \$ K # E 8 & B D R % P 9 1 6 ยต ^ A 7

Thus, two such special characters are possible ร  ยฃ and ยต.

After placing all such special characters immediate right of โ1โ, we get:

3 U @ 4 ยฅ G 2 \$ K # E 8 & B D R % P 9 1 ยฃ ยต 6 ^ A 7

Step 3: Such digit that is immediately preceded by an alphabet and immediately followed by a special character.

3 U @ 4 ยฅ G 2 \$ K # E 8 & B D R % P 9 1 ยฃ ยต 6 ^ A 7

Thus, two such digits are possible ร  2 & 8.

After placing all such digits are placed immediate left of โPโ, we get:

3 U @ 4 ยฅ G \$ K # E & B D R % 8 2 P 9 1 ยฃ ยต 6 ^ A 7

Thus, from above given information we have final arrangement as follow:

3 U @ 4 ยฅ G \$ K # E & B D R % 8 2 P 9 1 ยฃ ยต 6 ^ A 7

We have:

3 U @ 4 ยฅ G \$ K # E & B D R % 8 2 P 9 1 ยฃ ยต 6 ^ A 7

Thus, two such special character are possible ร  ยฅ and ^.

Hence, option D is correct choice.

We have:

3 U @ 4 ยฅ G \$ K # E & B D R % 8 2 P 9 1 ยฃ ยต 6 ^ A 7

Element 9th to right of 17th element from right end = (17 โ 9) = 8th element from right end.

Thus, 8th element from right end ร  9

Hence, option B is correct choice.

We have:

3 U @ 4 ยฅ G \$ K # E & B D R % 8 2 P 9 1 ยฃ ยต 6 ^ A 7

After rearrangement of alphabets in reverse alphabetical order, we get:

3 U @ 4 ยฅ R \$ P # K & G E D % 8 2 B 9 1 ยฃ ยต 6 ^ A 7

Thus, element 7th to the left of G ร  ยฅ

Hence, option A is correct choice.

We have:

3 U @ 4 ยฅ G \$ K # E & B D R % 8 2 P 9 1 ยฃ ยต 6 ^ A 7

Clearly, 2nd element is third to the left of 1st element and 3rd element is fourth to right of 1st element.

Thus, โ%&9โ doesnโt belong to same group.

Hence, option C is correct choice.

Directions (5-8):

Note: None of the person born after 2008.

If it mentions the person age is considered as last two digits of the person Birth year, then it will be at any sequence. For example, X age is considered as last two digit of Y birth year-1936, and then X age is either 36 or 63.

• P was born on1998.

• The difference between the age of P and T is 5 years.

Rโs age is equal to the last two digit of birth year of T and his age is not an even number.

• Uโs age is a square number between Tโs age and Rโs age.

• Sโs age is half of the age of Vโs age whose age is last two digit of Uโs birth year.
• The sum of ages of P and S is two more than age of Q.
