There is a gap of 2 between the first characters of each of the given pair. The second character of each pair is increasingly moving one position to the right of the first character.

If the first half of the following series is reversed, then which item is 9th to the right of the 10th item from the right side? The series is:

Ans: a

Midpoint is 10. We have to find 20 - 10 + 9 = 19 + 1th item from the left side. Since the location lies in the right half, reversing the series has no effect in this zone. So counting from the left side, the item is 3.
