Explanation:

Question (1-5)

\$ 5 G A H 8 # 3 U S 9 Ω W 7 E J Ψ R % Q 1 L 2 I N ¥ 4 © 6 O B

Let drop the all the symbols in the arrangement,

5 G A H 8 3 U S 9 W 7 E J R Q 1 L 2 I N 4 6 O B

Then, 13th element from the right end is ‘E’

38S     ΩUE              R7L     ? Hence, the answer is ‘¥ 1 B’

Fourth to the right of the nineteenth element from the left end i.e. 19 + 4 = 23rd element from the left end = ‘2’

\$ 5 G A H 8 # 3 U S 9 Ω W 7 E J Ψ R % Q 1 L 2 I N ¥ 4 © 6 O B

There is only one such a vowel.

\$ 5 G A H 8 # 3 U S 9 Ω W 7 E J Ψ R % Q 1 L 2 I N ¥ 4 © 6 O B

There are two such a numbers.

Question (6-8):

457     743     614     298     329

Interchanging the first and third digits of the each numbers we get,

754     347     416     892     923

∴ the third highest number is ‘754’.

Hence, the corresponding number is 457.

Ascending order of the digits,

457     347     146     289     239

The highest number is, 457

The second lowest number is 289

Hence, required sum = 5 + 8 = 13

Interchanging the second and third digits of each numbers, we get

475     734     641     289     392

∴ the second highest number is, 641

Hence, the corresponding number is 614

Question (9-10):

729     867     308     652     460

Adding to ‘one’ to the every even digits and subtracting ‘two’ from every odd digits, we get 537            975     119     733     571

The second number from the right end is 733

The second number from left end is 975

Hence, the required difference = 5 – 3 = 2
