**(Directions 1–2): Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below it.**

There is a 5×5 matrix which can produce signals which in turn help in illumination of some bulbs. The rows of the matrix are denoted by @, %, &, £ and ¥ from bottom to top in the same order and the columns are denoted by A, B, C, D and E from left to right:

¥ row contains numbers which are consecutive multiple of ‘9’ starting from ‘36’.

£ row contains numbers which are consecutive multiple of ‘13’.

& row contains numbers which are consecutive multiple of ‘8’ starting from ‘32’.

% row contains numbers which are consecutive multiple of ‘7’.

@ row contains numbers which are consecutive multiple of ‘11’.

**Note:** If the starting number of a multiple is not given; then start the row from the same number.

**E.g.:** If a row contains numbers which are consecutive multiple of ‘5’. Then the row might be as follows;

The matrix helps in producing signals which is a string of numbers. There are four bulbs P, Q, R and S. Based on the outcome of the string one of the bulb blinks.

**Condition for blink:-**

I. If outcome of the string is below 80, the bulb Q blinks.

II. If outcome of the string is between 90 and 110, the bulb S blinks.

**Answers:**

**(Directions 1–2): **

We have:

- ¥ row contains numbers which are consecutive multiple of ‘9’ starting from ‘36’.
- £ row contains numbers which are consecutive multiple of ‘13’.
- & row contains numbers which are consecutive multiple of ‘8’ starting from ‘32’.
- % row contains numbers which are consecutive multiple of ‘7’.
- @ row contains numbers which are consecutive multiple of ‘11’.

From above given statements we have:

**1) Answer: C**

We have:

Y = £B &E £A @D

After placing value of strings from given matrix, we have:

Y = 26 64 13 44

Clearly, a prime number is preceded by a perfect square then, outcome of the string is product of digits at tenth place.

Thus, Y = (2 x 6 x 1 x 4) = 48

Clearly, condition I follows. Thus, bulb ‘Q’ blinks.

Hence, option C is correct choice.

**2) Answer: A**

We have:

X = ¥C @D £B @B

After placing value of strings from matrix, we have:

X = 54 44 26 22

Clearly, all the numbers of string are even numbers.

Then, outcome is the product of digits at one’s place.

Thus, X = (4 x 4 x 6 x 2) = 192

Clearly, condition IV follows, thus bulb R blinks.

Hence, option A is correct choice.

**(Directions 3–5): **

We have:

- The box having Rose is kept second to left of box L.
- The box having Ring is kept just below box L, that means we have four possible place for box L, in case (1) box L is kept at 1&, in case (2) L is kept at 1#, in case (3) L is kept at 2& and in case (4) L is kept at 2#.
- Box J is kept besides the box having Ring.
- The box J has five neighboring boxes, that means case (2) is not valid, in case (1) J is kept at 2#, in case (3) J is kept at 3%, in case (4) J is kept at 3&.
- Box J having Pen is kept exactly between box having Ball and box C, that means we have four possible place for box C, in case (1a) box C is kept at 3#, in case (1b) box C is kept at 1#, in case (3) box C is kept at 3&, in case (4) box C is kept at 3#.
- The box having Mango is kept exactly between the box C and the box B. Box B neither contains Ball nor Rose, that means in case (1a) box B is kept at 3%, in case (1b) 1&, in case (3) box B is kept at 1&, in case (4) box B is kept at 1#.

Based on above given information we have:

**Case (2) is not valid as The box J has five neighboring boxes**.

Again, we have:

- The box having LED is kept exactly between box having Toy and box B.
- Box having Banana is kept adjacent to box B, that means case (1b) & case (4) are not valid, in case (1a) the box having banana is kept at [email protected], in case (3) the box having banana is kept at 1#.
- The box having Banana is kept exactly below box D, that means case (3) is not valid and in case (1a) box D is kept at [email protected]
- Box D is kept second to left of box E, that means box E is kept at 2&.

Based on above given information we have:

**Case (1b) & case (4) as box having Banana is kept adjacent to box B and case (3) is not valid as the box having Banana is kept exactly below box D**.

Again, we have:

- Three boxes are kept neighbor of box I, which neither contains Ball nor Rose, that means box I contains Banana.
- Box I is kept at a gap of one from box G, that means we have two possible place for box G, in case (1a) box G is kept at [email protected], in case (1c) box G is kept at 3&.
- The box having Watch is kept at a gap of one from box G, that means in case (1a) the box having Watch is kept at 1&, in case (1c) the box having Watch is kept at 3&.
- The box having Bat is kept adjacent to box H, which neither contains Mango nor kept adjacent to box having Ball.
- Box H is kept adjacent to box A.
- Box K is kept exactly between the box having Book and box A, that means in case (1a) box D contains Bat and box H contains LED, thus case (1a) is not valid, in case (1c) box D contains Bat and box H contains Rose.

Based on above given information we have final arrangement as follow:

Case (1a) is not valid as Box K is kept exactly between the box having Book and box A.

**3) Answer: C**

Clearly, Box A having Rose is placed at ‘[email protected]’.

Hence, option C is correct choice.

**4) Answer: E**

Clearly, box K contains LED.

Hence, option E is correct choice.

**5) Answer: E**

Clearly, only statement I and III are true.

Hence, option E is correct choice.

**Directions (6 -8): **

**6) Answer: B**

We have:

13 64 X

17 21 64

For 2^{nd} row:

- An odd number (prime number) is followed by odd number (non-prime number) so, 17 x 21 = 357.
- Now, the row is 357 64, an odd number (non-prime number) followed by a cube number so, 357 + 64 = 421.
- As, resultant of difference of both rows = 362

Thus, resultant of row 1 = (421 – 362) = 59.

For 1^{st} row:

- An odd number (prime number) is followed by another odd number (non-prime number) so, 64 – 13 = 51.
- Now, the row is 51 X, odd number (non-prime number) followed by X to get resultant 59.

Thus, 51 + 8 = 59, this follows condition 5.

Thus, required value of X = 8.

Hence, option B is correct choice.

**7) Answer: E**

We have:

32 49 73

15 27 36

For 1^{st} row:

- An even number followed by perfect square, so 32 x 49 = 1568.
- Now, the row is 1568 73, an even number followed by odd number (prime number) so, 1568 + 73 = 1641.

Thus, resultant of row 1 = 1641.

For 2^{nd} row:

- An odd number (non-prime number) followed by a cube number so, 15 + 27 = 42.
- Now, the row is 42 36, an even number is followed by a perfect square so, 42 x 36 = 1512.

Thus, resultant of row 2 = 1512.

Thus, required difference = (1641 – 1512) = 129.

Hence, option E is correct choice.

**8) Answer: B**

We have:

28 9 53

21 36 X

For 1^{st} row:

- An even number followed by perfect square so, 28 x 9 = 252.
- Now, the row is 252 53, an even number followed by an odd number (prime number) so, 252 + 53 = 305.

Thus, resultant of 1^{st} row = 305.

For 2^{nd} row:

- Clearly, value of X = 305/5 = 61.
- An odd number (non-prime number) followed by an even number, so 21 x 36 = 756.
- An even number followed by an odd number (prime number) so, 756 + 61 = 817.

Thus, resultant of 2^{nd} row = 817.

Hence, option B is correct choice.

**(Directions 9–10): **

**9) Answer: A**

We have:

CREW RISK MART COLD FARM

After rearranging all the letters within words, we get:

WREC SRKI TRMA OLDC RMFA

Thus, “SRKI” appears third in dictionary.

Hence, option A is correct choice.

**10) Answer: A**

We have:

CREW RISK MART COLD FARM

After rearranging all the letters in alphabetical order we get:

AACCDEFIKLMMORRRRSTW

Seventh letter from left end -> F

Sixth letter from right end -> R

Thus, number of letters between ‘F’ and ‘R’ in an alphabetical series = 11.

Hence, option B is correct choice.
