    View Answer
     Option C
    10 is P. So 3 letters between 10 and 22. P + 3 = T, but T is already written . We cannot repeat any letter. So P – 3 = L
    So against 22 is L
    Now 18 is N. 22 is L. So between them is only 1 letter in English alphabetical series i.e. M

Directions (7-9): The first step has been obtained by multiplying the digits in input. The next steps are not obtained the same way. They are obtained by applying a certain logic. Numbers of step II have been obtained by using at least 1 digit of each number in step I. Each step is a resultant of previous step. (3 questions)


  1. Each of numbers in step II are halved, then find the sum of the numbers obtained.
    A) 17.5
    B) 18
    C) 24.5
    D) 22.5
    E) 20
    View Answer
     Option D
    From Input to 1st step:
    3*3 = 9, 4*2 = 8, so 9 | 8
    4*2 = 8, 1*7 = 7, so 8 | 7 and so the next number
    Numbers of step II have been obtained by using at least 1 digit of each number in step I.
    Step II:
    So from step I, add the first digits – (9+8+6) = 23
    Also from step I, add the first digits – (8+7+9) = 24
    Now for step III:
    3/2 = 1.5, 4/2 = 2
    Step IV:
    2 – 1.5 = 0.5
    So for given Input:
    Step I: 58………….88………….97
    Step II: ……22……..….23
    Step III: ……1……..….1.5
    Step IV: ……….0.5So required answer here = 22/2 + 23/2 = 11 + 11.5 = 22.5
  2. Find the multiplication of the two numbers obtained in step III.
    A) 2.5
    B) 1.5
    C) 1
    D) 0.5
    E) 2
    View Answer
     Option B

    1*1.5 = 1.5
  3. Find the difference between sum of numbers obtained in 1st step and sum of numbers obtained in all other steps.
    A) 183
    B) 170
    C) 189
    D) 172
    E) 195
    View Answer
     Option E
    Required difference = (58+88+97) – (22+23+1+1.5+0.5)
