Soln.
Ans: B

Midpoint is 10. We have to find 20 - 9 - 6 = 5 + 1th item from the left side. Since the location lies in the left half, the sequence has been reversed in this zone. So the item will be at location 10 - 5 = 5 + 1 from the left in the original series. Which means the item is: F.

### Question 9

In a certain code language 'one can easily crack' means '523 973 452 963', 'crack the shell insect' means '324 452 196 682', 'shell cover hard water' means '695 635 138 682' and 'protection against cover enemy' means '897 758 635 164'. Then what is the code for 'crack shell'?

452 682

C

635 324

D
