**Solutions**

S4. Ans.(c)

Sol.

By making the interchanges given in (a), we get the question as 2 – 5 + 3 = 4 or 0 = 4, which is false.

By making the interchanges given in (b), we get the equation as 3 – 2 + 5 = 4 or 6 = 4, which is false.

By making the interchanges given in (c), we get the equation as 5 – 3 + 2 = 4 or 4 = 4, which is true.

So, the answer is (c).

S5. Ans.(b)

Sol. Clearly, nine days ago, it was Thursday.

âˆ´ Today is Saturday.

S6. Ans.(d)

Sol. The new number formed after rearrangement is 6 4 7 9 8 3 2 5

The seventh digit from the right end is 4. The third digit to the right of 4 is 8.

S7. Ans.(a)

Sol. The given series when written in the reserve order becomes:

13, 11, 5, 0, 1, 2, 6, 4, 8, 3, 0, 7, 9, 3, 7

Then 7th number from the left is 6. The 4th number to the right is 6 is 0.
