**Answers :**

**Directions (1-5):**

Given that the orange box is at the 5^{th} position so,

The blue is at even position but not at the top. So, it can either be at 4^{th} or 2^{nd} position.

CASE 1: For 4^{th} position.

CASE 2: For 2^{nd} Position.

There are two boxes between pink and green box where pink box is above the green one. So, in the CASE 1, pink box can be at eh position.

And in CASE 2 also at eh position.

(Since, the green box is not at the bottommost position so pink box cannot be at 4th position.)

Now in case 1, the 1st and 2nd box will be of yellow and red colour. but it is given that, Red box is not adjacent to the green or yellow box. So, this case is contradictory.

Moving ahead with CASE 2, Since, green is not adjacent to red, so red will be the 1st box and 4th box would be yellow:

**1) Answer: CÂ **

**2) Answer: CÂ Â **

**4) Answer: EÂ **

**5) Answer: B**

**Directions (6-10) :**

**6) Answer: B**

5 1 2 9 3 8 7 1 4 6 8 3 2 3 9 7 1 2 5 4 8 9 3 5 4 6 7 6

If all the odd numbers are dropped from the above sequence, we get

**2** 8 **4 **6 **8** 2 **2 **4 **8** 4 **6** 6

Sum of the numbers in odd position of the sequence,

=2+4+8+2+8+6

= 30

**7) Answer: D **

5 1 2 9 3 8 7 1 **4 6 8** 3 2 3 9 7 1 2 5 **4 8** 9 3 5 **4 6** 7 6

Multiples of 2 in the above sequence which is immediately preceded by even number

46, 68, 48, 46

There are four such multiples of 2 are there in the above sequence which is immediately preceded by even number.

**8) Answer: C**

5 1 2 9 3 8 7 1 4 6 8 3 2 3 9 7 1 2 5 4 8 9 3 5 4 6 7 6

If all the odd numbers in the sequence are replaced by alphabets starting from A, we get

A B 2 C D 8 E F 4 6 8 **G** 2 H I J K 2 L 4 8 M N O 4 6 P 6

‘G’ is replacing ‘3’.

**9) Answer: B **

5 1 2 9 3 8 7 1 4 6 8 3 2 3 9 7 1 2 5 4 8 9 3 5 4 6 7 6
