(11-15)

11) 4:

8x6x3 = 144; 6x5x4 = 120. Therefore, second highest number is 654.

12) 3;

654 when arranged in ascending order, becomes 456 which is divisible by 3.

912 when arranged in ascending order, becomes 129 is also divisible by 3.

13) 2;

In 654, if one is subtracted from each even digit, it becomes 553. The digit '5' appears twice.

In 912, when one is subtracted from the even digit, it becomes 911 where the digit '1' appears twice.

14) 4;

In the given numbers,

571   863   427   654   912

after interchaning the first twi digits, the numbers appear as follows :

751   683   247   564   192

Hence, the second highest number is 683. The product of the first and the third digits is 18.

15) 1;

second lowest number is 571, and the second digit is '7'

Second highets number is 863, and the third digit is '3'

The product of 7 and 3 is 21.

16) 1;

Step No : 1

ZYXWUVUTSRQPONMLKJIHGFEDCBA

Step No : 2

ZXVTRPNLJHFDB (all the odd numbered position letters which amount to thirteen are dropped)

Step No : 3 4th letter to the right + 9th letter from left end = 13th from the left end which is 'B'.

17) 4;

Each letter in the word 'COMPATIBLE' is coded in the alphabetical order in the forward direction, but in the descending order.

C+10 = M, O+9=X, and so on

18) 2;

Tagore is 15th from the right end. Pavan is 25th from the right end. We know that Pavan is 26th from the left end.

Hence, number of children in the row = 25+26-1 = 50

19) 3;

Left position of Amar + Right position of Amar - 1 = number of children in a row Left position = 50+1-20 = 31st

20) 1 ;

Pavan is 25th from the right end. Amar is 20th from the right end. Hence, there are four children between Amar and Pavan.
