The first term of the first row is replaced by the resultant of the second row. So, the first row will become 113 16 42 25
113 16 – an odd number is being followed by an even-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the absolute difference between 113 and 16 which is 97.
97 42 – an odd number is being followed by a non-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the product of 97 and 42 which is 4074.
4074 25 – an even number is being followed by an odd-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the absolute difference between 4074 and 25 which is 4059.
Thus, the new resultant of the first row is 4059.
Hence, option B is the correct answer.

9 17 4 36
9 17 – an odd number is being followed by a non-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the product of 9 and 17 which is 153.
153 4 – an odd number followed by an even-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the absolute difference between 153 and 4 which is 149.
149 36 – an odd number followed by an even-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the absolute difference between 149 and 36 which is 113.
Thus, the resultant of the second row is 113.
Hence, option E is the correct answer.

8 16 42 25
8 16 – an even number is being followed by an even-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the sum of 8 and 16 which is 24.
24 42 – an even number is being followed by a non-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the product of 24 and 42 which is 1008.
1008 25 – an even number is being followed by an odd-perfect square number. So, the resultant would be the absolute difference between 1008 and 25 which is 983.
Thus, the resultant of the first row is 983.
Hence, option B is the correct answer.

Resultant of the first row is 89
So new second row is – 5 89 4 31
An odd number is followed by a non-perfect square number, so, 5 89 will have resultant as 84
In 84 4 31
An even number is followed by an even perfect square, so, 84 4 will have resultant as 88
In 88 31
An even number is followed by a non-perfect square number, so, 88 31 will have resultant as 57
Hence, option A is the right choice.

5 16 4 31
An odd number is followed by an even perfect square, so, 5 16 will have resultant as 80
In 80 4 31
An even number is followed by an even perfect square, so, 80 4 will have resultant as 84
In 84 31
An even number is followed by a non-perfect square number, so, 84 31 will have resultant as 53
Hence, option D is the right choice.

From the diagram, we can see that All crows can be pigeons and All bats can be black.
Hence, option C is the correct answer.

From the diagram, we can see that all batsmen being all rounder is a possibility and some wicket keepers can be all rounders.
Hence, option E is the correct answer.

From the diagram, we can see that all blades can be stainless and all pins can be stainless
Therefore, option A is the correct answer.

From the diagram, we can see that some cones can be spheres. Hence, conclusion I doesnâ€™t follow.
From the diagram, we can see that some cubes can be cones. Hence, conclusion II doesnâ€™t follow.
Therefore, option E is the correct answer.

From the diagram, we can see that no carrot is a tomato. Hence, conclusion I doesnâ€™t follow.
From the diagram, we can see that some all radishes can be carrots. Hence, conclusion II follows.
Therefore, option B is the correct answer.

We know Y = J, J should be equal to E.
Also, S > L for L < C either S = C or S < C.
Hence, option D is the right choice.

We know, K â‰¥ W for K â‰¥ Q either W = Q or W > Q.
Further Q < T for P > Q either P = T or P > T.
Hence, option E is the right choice.

Writing the two give expressions together,
T â‰¥ L # M > N â‰¥ P $K To have M > K, P must be greater than or equal to K. So, â€˜$â€™ must be replaced by â€˜>â€™ or â€˜â‰¥â€™ or ‘=’.
To have T > N, L must be greater than or equal to M. So, â€˜#â€™ must be replaced by â€˜>â€™ or â€˜â‰¥â€™ or ‘=’.
Hence, option A is the correct answer.

Writing the two give expressions together,
P > Q # R â‰¥ T â‰¥ K â‰¥ M $O and T > J For P > J, Q must be greater than or equal to R. So, â€˜#â€™ should be replaced by â€˜>â€™ or â€˜â‰¥â€™ or ‘=’ For R = O, M â‰¥ O or M = O. So, â€˜$â€™ should be replaced by either â€˜â‰¥â€™ or â€˜=â€™
Hence, option C is the correct answer.

Five words formed are
HPB IJQ USZ MFH QVU
Three vowels are present in them.

Letters of five words after arranging in alphabetical order becomes
AGO HIP RTY EGL PTU

3 letters changed in GOA.
0 letters changed in HIP.
2 letters changed in TRY.
3 letters changed in LEG.
2 letters changed in PUT.
Hence, positions of 10 letters changed in the given words.

Five words will change into
OGA IHP RTY ELG UPT
RTY is the word in which letters are in alphabetical order

Five words will change into
AOG PIH YRT GEL TUP
Hence, There are no meaningful words in newly formed words.
