### Question 1

If the second half of the following series is reversed, then which item is 8th to the right of the 11th item from the right side? The series is:

L C 5 A 4 M S P O K Y 1 2 7 8 3 6 Z G +

A

B

Y

C

8

D

7

Soln.
Ans: D

Midpoint is 10. We have to find 20 - 11 + 8 = 17 + 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 - 17) = 13 from the left in the original series. Which means the item is: 2.

Soln.
Ans: A

Sum of positions of an item from top(right) and bottom(left) of a list is always equal to the sum of the positions of the first and last items. So position of Raju from the bottom is = 26 - 12 + 1 = 15. Number of students between them is: difference of 15 and 14 (minus 1) = 0
