__Useful Tricks for Alpha Numeric Series for Upcoming IBPS Exams 2017:__Dear Readers, Here we have given the Useful Tricks for Alpha Numeric Series for IBPS Exams 2017. Candidates those who are preparing for the upcoming IBPS Exams 2017 can make use of it.

__Alpha Numeric Tricks__In this article we learn how to solve Alpha-numeric series easily by developing tricks

**SET 1**

**Study the following digit-letter-symbol sequence carefully and answer the questions given below:**

2 R ★ C f 8 E $ G 2 ¥ 4 9 L c δ B< K 1& A W ? P e Ψ Q @ 7 F 6

**1)**

**If the first half of the series is written in reverse order, then which Element will be twenty-first from the right end?**

**TRICK:**

No need of writing the series in reverse order

**Step 1:** Count the total number of alpha-numericals =32

**Step 2:** As we are considering half of the series, divide by two =32/2=16

Required 21R = 16R+5R

Instead of taking 5R take 5L (since first half is reversed)

16R+5L=f (Answer)

**2) Which element will be twenty-first from the right end, if second half of the series is reversed? **

**TRICK:**

No need of writing the series in reverse order

Required 21R = 16R+5R

16R+5R (belongs to first half do not reverse) =4 (Answer)

**Step 1:**Count the total number of alpha-numericals =32**Step 2:**As we are considering half of the series, divide by two =32/2=16Required 21R = 16R+5R

16R+5R (belongs to first half do not reverse) =4 (Answer)

**3) If the above sequence is written in reverse order, then which element will be 5th to the right of 16th element from the right end?**

**TRICK:**

If both are in same direction (subtract)

=To From

=5R – 16R

=11R

=11L (trick: To reverse order change R to L)

=¥ (Answer)

=To From

=5R – 16R

=11R

=11L (trick: To reverse order change R to L)

=¥ (Answer)

**4) Which element is seventh to the left of sixteenth element from the right in the above sequence?**

**TRICK:**

If both are in opposite direction (add)

=To From

=7L + 16R

=23R=2 (Answer)

=To From

=7L + 16R

=23R=2 (Answer)

**SET 2**

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

**1) Which letter will be 4th to the right of 11th letter from your left hand of English Alphabets?****TRICK:**

If both are in opposite direction (add)

=To from

=4R + 11L

=15L =O (Multiples of 5) (Use this trick to find 15L)

=To from

=4R + 11L

=15L =O (Multiples of 5) (Use this trick to find 15L)

E | J | O | T | Y |

5 | 10 | 15 | 20 | 25 |

**2) Which letter will be 6th to the left of 20th letter from your left of English Alphabets?**

**TRICK:**

If both are in same direction (subtract)

=To From

=6L – 20L

=14L=N (Multiples of 5) (Use this trick to find 14L)

=To From

=6L – 20L

=14L=N (Multiples of 5) (Use this trick to find 14L)

E | J | O | T | Y |

5 | 10 | 15 | 20 | 25 |

**3) Which letter will be 5th to the left of 12th letter from your right of English Alphabets?**

**TRICK:**

=TO From

=5L + 12R

=17R= (Find from reverse alphabetical order) (How we find if it is from right side)

=J (Answer)

=5L + 12R

=17R= (Find from reverse alphabetical order) (How we find if it is from right side)

=J (Answer)

**Step 1:**

find 17L from Multiples of 5

E | J | O | T | Y |

5 | 10 | 15 | 20 | 25 |

17L is Q, Find 17R from step 2.

**Step 2:**

find 17R from

A | 1 | 26 |

B | 2 | 25 |

C | 3 | 24 |

D | 4 | 23 |

E | 5 | 22 |

F | 6 | 21 |

G | 7 | 20 |

H | 8 | 19 |

I | 9 | 18 |

J | 10 | 17 |

K | 11 | 16 |

L | 12 | 15 |

M | 13 | 14 |

N | 14 | 13 |

O | 15 | 12 |

P | 16 | 11 |

Q | 17 | 10 |

R | 18 | 9 |

S | 19 | 8 |

T | 20 | 7 |

U | 21 | 6 |

V | 22 | 5 |

W | 23 | 4 |

X | 24 | 3 |

Y | 25 | 2 |

Z | 26 | 1 |

**4) Which letter will be 3rd to the right of 15th from the right?**

**TRICK:**

=TO from

=3R – 15R

=12R=O (Since from Reverse alphabetical order)

=3R – 15R

=12R=O (Since from Reverse alphabetical order)
