Directions: Study the following numbers carefully and answer the questions given below:

5836   7469   8251   6293   4172
1
If the digits of all the numbers are to be arranged in ascending order within the number from right to left then the numbers thus formed are to be arranged in descending order from left to right then what would be the sum of second digit of third number from left end and third digit of fourth number from right end?
» Explain it
D
We have,

The given sequence = 5836   7469   8251   6293   4172
 
After arranging the digits of all the numbers in ascending order within the number from right to left, we get:
 
8653   9764   8521   9632   7421
 
After, arranging the newly formed in descending order from left to right, we get:

9764   9632   8653   8521   7421
 
Here, third number from left end is ‘8653’ and second digit of ‘8653’ is ‘6’.
 
And, fourth number from right end is ‘9632’ and third digit of ‘9632’ is ‘3’.
 
Required Sum = 6 + 3 = 9
 
Hence, the correct answer is option D.
 
2
If in each number first digit is interchanged with second digit and third digit is interchanged with fourth digit after that first digit is interchanged with fourth digit then what would be the difference of highest and second lowest numbers thus formed?
» Explain it
B
We have,

The given sequence = 5836   7469   8251   6293   4172

After interchanging first digit with second digit and third digit with fourth digit, we get:

8563   4796   2815   2639   1427

Now, interchanging first and fourth digit of each of the above number, we get:

3568   6794   5812   9632   7421

Here, the highest and second lowest numbers are ‘9632’ and ‘5812’

Required Difference = 9632 – 5812 = 3820

Hence, the correct answer is option B.

3
If all the odd digits of each number are decreased by 1 and all the even digits of each number are divided by 2 then the even numbers thus formed are arranged in descending from left to right and on the right of these all odd numbers are arranged in ascending order then which of the following numbers will be in the middle of the sequence?
» Explain it
C
We have,

The given sequence = 5836   7469   8251   6293   4172

After subtracting 1 from all the odd digits of each number and dividing all the even digits of each number by 2, we get:

4423   6238   4140   3182   2061

Now, arranging all the even numbers in descending order from left to right, we get:

6238   4140   3182

After arranging all the odd number in ascending order on the right of above numbers, we get:

6238   4140   3182   2061   4423

The, number in the middle of the sequence is ‘3182’.

Hence, the correct answer is option C.

4
If all the numbers are arranged in descending order then what will the product of second digit of the third number from the right end and third digit of the forth number from the left end?
» Explain it
C
We have,
 
The given sequence = 5836   7469   8251   6293   4172
 
After changing the numbers in descending order, we get:
 
8251       7469   6293   5836   4172
 
Now, we have:
 
The Third number from the right end - 6293
 
The second digit of the third number -2
 
The forth number from the left end - 5836
 
The third digit of the forth number – 3
 
The product of the numbers -2*3 = 6
 
the product of second digit of the third number from the right end and third digit of the forth number from the left end is 6.
 
Hence, the correct answer is option C.
 
5
Find the number the sum of all the digits of which is equal to the sum of all the smallest digits taken from all the numbers.
» Explain it
E
We have,
 
The given sequence = 5836   7469   8251   6293   4172
 
The smallest digit of each number – 3, 4, 1, 2, 1
 
The sum of all smallest digits of each number,
 
3+4+1+2+1=11
 
The sum of all digits of each number,
 
5+8+3+6 = 22
 
7+4+6+9 = 26
 
8+2+5+1 = 16
 
6+2+9+3 = 20
 
4+1+7+2 = 14
 
the sum of all the digits of each number is not equal to the sum of all the smallest digits taken from all the numbers.
 
Hence, the correct answer is option E.
