Directions (1-5) :

Two numbers are arranged in each step from both the end such as the lowest number is arranged from left end and the highest number is arranged from the right end in step I. Similarly second-lowest number is arranged from the left end while the second-highest number is arranged from the right end and so on. Also while arranging the number each of the numbers which are arranged from the left end is replaced by the number which is the difference of the digits of that number and each of the numbers which are arranged from the right end is replaced by the number which is the addition of the digits of that number.

Input: 45 78 19 23 56 35 62 84

Step I: 8 45 78 23 56 35 62 12

Step II: 1 8 45 56 35 62 12 15

Step III: 2 1 8 45 56 12 15 8

Step IV: 1 2 1 8 12 15 8 11

Clearly, the difference of the numbers which is 2nd from the right end in step IV and 3rd from the left end in Step II is 45-8=37

Hence C is the correct choice.

Clearly, 4+2 = 6th element from the right end in step III.

Hence D is the correct choice.

Clearly, 35 is 4th from the right end in step II.

Hence A is the correct choice.

Clearly,The addition of the numbers which is 4th from the right end in step II and 4th from the right end in step IV is 35+12=47

Hence C is the correct choice.

Clearly,the sum of numbers in Step IV is 1+2+1+8+12+15+8+11=58

Hence C is the correct choice.

a b _ y   a b c _ x w   a b c d e v _

The format is, a b z y   a b c d x w    a b c d e v u.
