### Question 5

If the second half of the following series is reversed, then which item is 9th to the right of the 14th item from the right side? The series is:

B E R F M 6 Z T Y S % K 5 W 3 X G P 1 J

A

P

B

J

C

X

D

3

Soln.
Ans: C

Midpoint is 10. We have to find 20 - 14 + 9 = 15 + 1th item from the left side. Since the location lies in the right half, the sequence has been reversed in this zone. So the item will be at location 10 + (20 - 15) = 15 from the left in the original series. Which means the item is: 3.
