Solution:

1).   Given equation = 8 * 5 * 9 * 31
From option (d), 8 × 5 – 9 = 31
40 – 9 = 31
31 = 31

2).Given expression = (50 V 2) W (28 T 4)
After interchanging the letter in symbols, (50 ÷ 2) + (28 × 4)
= 25 + 112 = 137

3).Option (a) after interchanging the signs,
30 ÷ 6 × 5 + 4 – 2 = 27
⇒ 5 × 5 + 4 – 2 = 27
⇒ 29 – 2 = 27
⇒ 27 = 27

4).Given equation,
(16 – 4) × 6 ÷ 2 + 8 = 30
From option (a), after interchanging signs
(16 ÷ 4) × 6 – 2 + 8 = 30
4 × 6 – 2 + 8= 30
32 – 2 = 30
30 = 30

5).Form option (a), after interchanging the signs
16 + 5 – 10 × 4 ÷ 3
= 16 × 5 ÷ 10 + 4 – 3
= 16 × (5 / 10) + 4 – 3 = 8 + 4 – 3 = 9

6).From option (d), (18 ÷ 6) × 12 = 3 × 12 = 36

7).(1 * 2) * 3 =  ( 1 + 2 × 6) * 3
= 13 * 3 = 13 + 3 × 6 = 13 + 18 = 31
