If all the Vowels in the alphabets are excluded and rest of Consonants as coded as follows i.e., B as 1, C as 2, D as 3…… upto K as 8. Then from L as 1, M as 2,….upto T as 8. Again V as 1, ……up to Z as 8.

Direction (1-5)

H is 2nd from the right end.

E is 28 years old and all the persons are sitting to the left are younger to E and all the persons are sitting to the right of E are elder to E.Three persons are sitting between E and F. F is elder to E so F is to the right of E.

 H

B is 13 years old and C is 22 years old so at least two persons are to the left of E. So if E is 3rd from the left end than F must be 2nd from the right end but H is already there so that can’t be possible so E must be 4th from the left end and F must be at the right end.

 E H F 28

Two persons are sitting between B and D. So B is either 2nd from the left end or 3rd from the left end. So we have two cases-

Case 1: If B is 2nd from the left end:

 B E D H F 13 28

G is 3rd to the left of A. So G must be immediate left of E and A is immediate left of H, then C is at the left end.Two persons are sitting between the one who is 40 years old and the one who is 30 years old as both persons are elder to E so both are must be right of E. So either D or F is 30 years old or 40 years old.F is younger to D. So F is 30 years old and D is 40 years old.

We know that D’s age is twice of G so G must be 20 years old but we know that G’s age is an odd number so this case gets rejected.

 C B G E D A H F 22 13 28 40 30

Case 2: If B is 3rdfrom the left end:

 B E D H F 13 28

G is 3rd to the left of A. So G must be 2nd to the left of E and A is immediate left of D then C is at the left end.Two persons are sitting between the one who is 40 years old and the one who is 30 years old as both persons are elder to E so both are must be right of E. So either A or F is 30 years old or 40 years old.F is younger to D. So F cannot be the eldest so A is eldest and 40 years old and F is 30 years old.

 C G B E A D H F 22 13 28 40 30

H is 6 years elder to F so H is 36 years old. D is younger to H but elder to E  and D’s age is twice of G’s age whom age is an odd number as D is elder to F and younger to H so D must be 34 years old and G must be 17 years old which is an odd number.

Here is the final arrangement:

 C G B E A D H F 22 17 13 28 40 34 36 30

Only A is elder to H.

Hence, option B.

F and C sit at the both ends.

Hence, option D.

B is 3rd to the left of D.

Hence, option B.

A is 40 years old and F is 30 years old so sum of the their ages is 70.

Hence, option A.

H is 3rd to the right of E.

Hence, option C.

Direction (6-10)

B=1, C=2, D=3, F=4, G=5, H=6, J=7, K=8
L=1, M=2, N=3, P=4, Q=5, R=6, S=7, T=8
V=1, W=2, X=3, Y=4, Z=5

1. B

From condition II,

Super=7U4E#

Hence, option B.

1. A

From condition II,

Position=4O7I8IO#

Then from condition III,

4O7I8IO#=478#

Hence, option A.

1. C

From condition I,

Onion=O3I%3

Hence, option C.

1. C

From condition IV,

Space=74&2&

Hence, option C.

1. E

From condition II,

Border=1O63E#

Hence, option E.
