(b) 150
(c) 140
(d) 130

10. If A represents ‘×’, B represents ‘÷’, C represents ‘+’ and D represents ‘-‘’, then find the value of 2 A 8 D 5 C 9 B 3?
(a) 11
(b) 13
(c) 15
(d) 14

1: (b)
21 and 19 represents the number of letters that come after F and H in alphabetical sequence.

2: (a)
In the group MNOP, the letters are shifted +1, +2, +3, +4 places in alphabetical sequence to get NPRT. Similarly, EFGH can be converted to FHJL

3: (c)
4 and 8 are 22 and 23 respectively. So, 12 and 13 are the next numbers in the group.

4: (a)
10/2 + 2 = 7
Therefore, 14/2 + 2 = 9

5: (b)
The sum of alphabetical positions of L, I, M and E is 12+9+13+5=39. So, 39+1=40/2=20.
The sum of alphabetical positions of L, E, M, O and N is 12+5+13+15+14=59. So, 59+1=60/2=30.

6: (a)
The pattern here will be ‘abbaccabbacc’

7: (a)
The pattern here will be ‘aababb’.

8: (c)
In FUTURE, first two letters are reversed, last two letters are reversed and middle two letters are unchanged. So, NATURE will be coded as ANTUER.

9: (a)
In TEA, the alphabetical positions of T, E and A are 20, 5 and 1. The positions numbers are multiplied to get the code as 100. Similarly, FAT can be coded as 120.

10: (d)
2 A 8 D 5 C 9 B 3 = 2 × 8 - 5 + 9 ÷ 3 = 16 – 5 + 3 = 14
