- Question 1 of 10
##### 1. Question

1 pointsCategory: Reasoning**(Directions 1 – 5): To answer the questions, study the following example based on the corresponding conditions given below it.**1. If the sum of two digits in triangle 1 is less than 10, then increase each digits by 2 and then take the sum else decrease the digits by 2 and then take the product.

2. If the number of alphabets in English alphabet series between the 2 letters in triangle 2 is odd, then each alphabet is changed to their immediate successive alphabet in the alphabetical series else each alphabet is changed to their immediate preceding alphabet in the alphabet series.

3. If the product of two digits in triangle 3 is greater than 15, then increase digits by 1 and take the product else take the sum of two digits.

4. If the difference in the position of alphabets(in English alphabet series) of the two alphabets in triangle 4 is less than 10, then the alphabet exchange their positions to their respective immediate succeeding alphabets in the alphabetical series else alphabets exchange their positions in the triangle.Example:

**Question Figure:**

CorrectAnswer –

**3**

Solution:

According to given conditions:

In triangle 1:

Sum of digits = 6 + 5 = 11.

Sum of digits > 10 it implies decrease each digit by 2 and take the product.

6 – 2 = 4, 5 – 2 = 3 → Product of 4 × 3 = 12.In triangle 2:

Number of letters between ‘h’ and ‘p’ = 7.

Number of letters is odd. It implies change each alphabet to their immediate succeeding alphabet.

‘h’ → ‘i’ and ‘p’ → ‘q’In triangle 3:

Product of 3 and 6 = 3 × 6 = 18

Product of two digits > 15 it implies increase each digit by 1 and take the product.

3 + 1 = 4, 6 + 1 = 7 → Product of 4 × 7 = 28In triangle 4:

Difference in position of alphabets ‘l’(12) and ‘t’(20) is 20 – 12 = 8

Difference in position of alphabets < 10 it implies exchange the position of alphabets to their respective immediate succeeding alphabets.
