Important for :
1
With respect to the sequence after step 2, four of the following five are alike in some way and thus form a group. Which of the following does not belong to the group?
» Explain it
E
From the following explanation it is clear that '6*T' is the odd one out because 'T' is not third to the left of 6 in the sequence after step 2.

Logic: Second element is second to the right of first element; third element is third to the left of first element.

Hence option E is correct.
