**(Directions 6 – 10): Study the following information to answer the given questions.**

Given below an input-output arrangement, steps responsive mathematical operations on a set of numbers according to which you need to answer the following questions. The same operation is used in all the steps.

**If the numbers 3 and 6 are reversed in step 1, what is the difference between the old output and new output (you have to adding those 4 numbers of last step)?**

1) Zero

2) 1

3) 2

4) 3

5) None of these

###### Answer

Answer –**2) 1**

**Solution:**

The result is = 6 + 3 = 9.

If the numbers 3 and 6 are reversed in step 1 then, Step 1 will be-

If the numbers 3 and 6 are reversed in step 1 then, the result is = 6 + 4 = 10.

Hence, the difference is 10 – 9 = 1.**If all the numbers in step 2 are added with each other and subtract by the answer obtained by added the numbers of step 3, what’s the result?’**

1) Zero

2) 1

3) 2

4) 3

5) None of these

###### Answer

Answer –**5) None of these**

**Solution:**

The addition of numbers of step 2: 4 + 3 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 4 + 4 + 1 = 16

The addition of numbers of step 3: 0 + 0 + 6 + 3 = 9

Hence, the result is = 16 – 9 = 7.

**How many elements in step 2 are multiples of 2?**

1) Zero

2) 1

3) 2

4) 3

5) None of these

###### Answer

Answer –**3) 2**

Hence, only two elements are there.

**What is the resultant if all the numbers of step 3 multiply with each other?**

1) 18

2) 6

3) 3

4) 0

5) 12

###### Answer

Answer –**4) 0**

Hence, if all the numbers of step 3 multiply with each other resultant will be 0.

**What is the sum of all the numbers of step 1?**

1) 42

2) 40

3) 39

4) 35

5) None of these

###### Answer

Answer –**1) 42**
