a)$UQ b)RUQ c)U&Z d)D3L e)@83 8.Which of the following is eighth to the right of the sixteenth from the right end of the given arrangement? a)4 b)2 c)W d)@ e)A 9.After dropping all the symbols from the arrangement, which will be the thirteenth element from the left end of the given arrangement? a)7 b)@ c)M d)# e)L 10.How many such numbers are there in the above arrangement each of which is immediately preceded by a symbol and also immediately followed by a letter? a)Three b)Four c)Two d)More than three e)None Answer key 1.a) 2.d) 3.b) 4.c) 5.c) 6.b) 7.e) 8.b) 9.a) 10.a) Solution (1-5): 'reach station on time' = 'pc et kr gd', 'my new work station' = 'kr nj ho tu', 'work on my project' = 'nj et sn ho', 'reach new project site' = 'sn ax tu pc' 6.R(+3) = U(+5) = € Z(+3) = L(+5) = @ N(+4) = R(+4) = & M(+3) = 2(+5) = 5$(+3) = 8(+5) = 3

7.J(-2) = 5(-2) = A(-2) = W(-2) = @
C(+2) = N(+2) = 6(+2) = R(+2) = 8
+(+3) = 6(+3) = Ω(+3) = &(+3) = 3

8.8th to the right of the 16th from the right end means 8th from the right end.
so, it is 2

9.According to the question, the new sequence would be,
C N 6 R 8 U D Q 3 Z 9 L 7 M 4 2 W A B 5 X J
So, 13th from the left is 7.

10.         Symbol||Number||Letter
such combinations are: Ω8U, #7M, @2W
