Direction (15): Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below:

When a word and number arrangement machine is given an input line words and number, it arranges them following a particular rule. The following is the illustration of input and re-arrangement.

Input: allegiance granular resolution solidarity miracle national 39 41 18 27 52

Step I: granular allegiance resolution solidarity miracle national 41 18 27 52 39

Step II: granular miracle allegiance resolution solidarity national 41 18 52 27 39

Step III: granular miracle solidarity allegiance resolution national 41 52 18 27 39

Step IV: granular miracle solidarity resolution allegiance national 41 52 18 27 39

And Step IV is the last step of the rearrangement of the above input.

As per the rules followed in the above steps, find out in each of the following questions the appropriate steps for the given input.

4. How many elements are there between ‘business’ and ‘68’ in step IV?

(1) 7

(2) 6

(3) 5

(4) 4

(5) None of these

(5) None is true

Direction (610): Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below.

In the given figure below, Each triangle are represented by (1), (2), (3) and (4). Input is coded with some conditions which are represented below the diagram.

Input:

(i) In triangle (1), If the number count between the two letters (as per the alphabetical order) is square of any number, then it is coded with its opposite alphabet in the alphabetical series, else it is coded with second previous letter. In the above input the number of letters between D and N is 9(square number) so D=4(from the first) is replaced by W=4(from the last)

(ii) In triangle (2),If Difference between the two digits (3-2=1) is less than 4 means then even number is coded with (+5) and odd number is coded विथ (-2), else even number is coded with (-2) and odd number is coded with (+5).

(iii) In triangle (3), If there is exactly one vowel in between the two letters, then it is coded with previous letter else code with its next letter. (E is the only vowel between D and G, so it is coded with its previous letter).iv) In triangle (4), if it is an odd number then twice of that number to be coded else it is even number then half of the even number value to be coded. In the above input 7 is odd number twice of 7 will be 14. 6 is an even number its half will be 3.

Use the same condition for the input given below.

Input:

6. What is the sum of the difference between the number obtained in triangle (2) and the difference between the number obtained in triangle (4)?

(1) 16

(2) 14

(3) 18

(4) 17

(5) None of these

7. Which of the following letters are obtained in triangle (1)?

(1) U, C

(2) C, V

(3) U, X

(4) D, V

(5) None of these

8. Which of the following letters are obtained in triangle (1)?

(1) U, C

(2) C, V

(3) U, X

(4) D, V

(5) None of these

9. In triangle (1) and triangle (3), how many letters are followed by vowel according to the alphabetical series?

(1) 1

(2) 2

(3) 3

(4) 4

(5) None of these

10. What number should be added to the two digit number obtained in triangle (4), to make it as a perfect cube?

(1) 7

(2) 2

(3) 9

(4) 10

(5) None of these

Solutions:

Ans.(15):Words are arranged in descending order with respect to the difference between the first and last letter of the word. If two words difference are same then write it in reverse alphabetical order. Numbers are arranged in ascending order with respect to the sum of the digits. If two numbers sum is same write it in ascending order.

Step I: country provide 25 53 dispute commercial 68 business 75 parameters 95

Step II: country business provide 25 53 dispute commercial 75 parameters 68 95

Step III: country business provide 25 53 dispute commercial parameters 75 68 95
