Number series- conditions based

Direction (1-4): Study the following information carefully and answer the below questions:

There are two rows given. To find out the resultant of a particular row we need to follow the below conditions.

Condition 1: If an odd number is followed by an even number, then the second number is subtracted from the first number.

Condition 2: If an odd number is followed by another odd number then both the numbers are to be added.

Condition 3: If an even number is followed by another even number, then the second number is the resultant number.

Condition 4: If an even number is followed by an odd number, then both the numbers are to be multiplied.

Condition 5: If the final resultant number of a row is even, then it should be divided by 2.

45     16     x

32     55     14

In row 2, as per condition 4, 32 and 55 are multiplied. 32 * 55 = 1760.

In row 2, as per condition 3, 14 is the resultant of row 2.

As per condition 5, the resultant is divided by 2. Hence, x = 14/2 = 7.

45     16     7

In row 1, as per condition 1, 16 is subtracted from 45. 45 – 16 = 29.

In row 1, as per condition 2, 29 is added to 7. 29 + 7 = 36.

As per condition 5, the resultant is divided by 2. Hence, 36/2 = 18 is the answer.

49     18     33

26     Y      57

In row 1,

As per condition 1, 18 is subtracted from 49. 49 – 18 = 31.

As per condition 2, 31 is added to 33. 31 + 33 = 64.

As per condition 5, 64 is divided by 2. 64 / 2 = 32. Hence Y = 32.

26     32     57

In row 2,

As per condition 3, 32 is considered as the resultant.

As per condition 4, 32 is multiplied with 57. 32 * 57 = 1824.

As per condition 5, 1824 is divided by 2. 1824 / 2 = 912.

56     17     34

45     71     23

In row 1,

As per condition 4, 56 is multiplied with 17. 56 * 17 = 952.

As per condition 3, 34 is considered as the resultant.

As per condition 5, 34 is divided by 2. 34 / 2 = 17.

45     71     23

In row 2,

As per condition 2, 45 is added to 71. 45 + 71 = 116.

As per condition 4, 116 is multiplied with 23. 116 * 23 = 2668.

As per condition 5, 2668 is divided by 2. 2668 / 2 = 1334.

From row 1 and 2, 17  1334

As per condition 1, subtract 1334 from 17. 17 – 1334 = -1317.

As per condition 6, 1 is subtracted from -1317. -1317 – 1 = -1318.

15     21     z

31     42     17

In row 2,

As per condition 1, 42 is subtracted from 31. 31 – 42 = -11.

As per condition 2, -11 is added to 17. -11 + 17 = 6.

Subtracting 6 from 18, 18 – 6 = 12 should be the resultant of row 1.

In row 1,

As per condition 2, 15 is added to 21. 15 + 21 = 36.

36     z => 12

On comparing the two values, 12 (resultant of row 1) and 36 (resultant of 15 and 21), by substitution method and considering the conditions, the value of z can be 12, as per condition 3. Hence, option C is correct.

3248 2397 5724 7415 3276

5248 2937 7724 7145 5276

Hence, option B is correct.

3248 2397 5724 7415 3276

8432 9732 7542 7541 7632

Hence, option D is correct.

3248 2397 5724 7415 3276

4238 2793 5427 1475 7236

1475 2793 4238 5427 7236

Hence, option A is correct.

3248 2397 5724 7415 3276

Hence, option C is correct.
