SOLUTIONS:-

1. (C)  Q J 1 R    ! T Y    2 @ P E    # S 3    H I D F 4 U \$ % 5 6 G A 7 & U J 8 K

Hence, only Two consonant are there in the above arrangement, which is immediately preceded by a symbol but not immediately followed by a vowel.

2. (B)  Q J 1 R !      [ T Y 2 @ P E #    S 3 H    I D F 4 U \$ % 5 6 G A 7 & U J ]       8 K

Hence, only One numbers are between T and J, which is both immediately preceded and immediately followed by a consonant.

3. (A)  Q J 1 R ! T Y 2 @ P E # S 3 H I D F 4 U \$ % 5 6 G A 7 & U J 8 K

Hence, None symbols are there in the above arrangement, which is immediately preceded by a vowel and immediately followed by a number.

4.(A)  Q J 1 R ! T Y 2 @ P E    #      S 3 H I D F 4        U         \$ % 5 6 G A 7 & U J 8 K

8th                                  20th

5. (D)  Q J 1 R ! T Y 2 @      P       E # S 3     H     I D F 4        U     \$ % 5 6 G A 7 & U J 8 K

10th                  Middle                   13th

6. (D)  L E 6 J + H A G F D     9     \$ M     4    @ 3        I    1 B 2 – 7 Q W R 5 U Z X C V

11th          Middle            15th

7. (B) =H5U

8. (B) L E 6 J + H A G F D 9 \$ M 4 @ 3 I 1 B 2 – 7 Q W   R 5 U   Z X C V

Hence, Only One numbers are there in the above arrangement which is immediately preceded by a consonant and not immediately followed by a symbol.

9. (A) L E 6    J + H    A G F    D 9 \$    M 4 @    3 I 1    B 2 –    7 Q W R 5 U Z X C V

10. (D) L E 6 J + H A   G F D   9 \$ M 4 @ 3 I 1 B 2 – 7    Q W R   5 U   Z X C V

Hence, More than two consonants are there in the above arrangement which is immediately followed by a consonant but not immediately preceded by a number.
