a)Â 122

b)Â 126

c)Â 125

d)Â 123

e)Â 124

**1)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

**Solution:**

The logic here is

**Step 1:
**First all digits are arranged in ascending order within the number from left to right and then all numbers are arranged in ascending order from left to right.

**Step 2:**

â€˜1â€™ is subtracted from each digit of the number and then the digits are arranged in descending order within the number from left to right.

**Step 3:**

The sum of the digits of numbers are arranged in ascending order from left to right.

**Step 4:**

All the numbers are added with 1$^2$, 2$^2$, 3$^2$, 4$^2$, 5$^2$, 6$^2$, 7$^2$, 8$^2$ respectively from left to right.

Ex:

For 14 $\rightarrow$ 13 + 1$^2$ = 14

For 41 $\rightarrow$ 16 + 5$^2$ = 41

For 84 $\rightarrow$ 20 + 6$^2$ = 84

**Step 5:**

The product of the digits are arranged in descending order from left to right.

**Step 6:**

Difference of two consecutive numbers.

Ex:

For 16 $\rightarrow$ 48 – 32 = 16

For 17 $\rightarrow$ 32 – 15 = 17

For 3 $\rightarrow$ 9 – 6 = 3

**Instructions**

**Study the given information carefully and answer the following questions.
**

As per the logic followed in the above given steps, find appropriate steps for the new Input which has been given below.

**Question 10:Â **What is the product of the digits in step 5 of new input?

a)Â 96

b)Â 36

c)Â 72

d)Â 64

e)Â None of the above

**10)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

**Solution:**

The logic here is

**Step 1: **First number is the resultant of numbers in first two boxes. Remaining numbers are obtained similarly. Starting numbers of the resultant number in Step 1 are the sum of squares of the first number in the first box and second number in the second box of the input. Ending numbers of the resultant number in Step 1 are the sum of squares of the second number in the first box and first number in the second box of the input.

Ex: 6$^2$ + 3$^2$ = 45, 8$^2$ + 1$^2$ = 65 $\rightarrow$ 4565

**Step 2:** Sum of the numbers of first two boxes and last two boxes respectively.

4565 + 5397 = 9962

5397 + 2665 = 8062

**Step 3: **Positive difference of the cubes of the respective digits of the boxes in Step 2.

9$^3$ – 8$^3$ = 217

9$^3$ – 0$^3$ = 729

6$^3$ – 6$^3$ = 0

2$^3$ – 2$^3$ = 0

Resultant value is 21772900

**Step 4: **Sum of the squares of the digits in step 3.

2$^2$ + 1$^2$ + 7$^2$ + 7$^2$ + 2$^2$ + 9$^2$ + 0$^2$ + 0$^2$ = 4 + 1 + 49 + 49 + 4 + 81 + 0 + 0 = 188

**Step 5: **The digits of the are added with 1$^3$, 2$^3$, 3$^3$ from left to right.

1 + 1$^3$ = 2

8 + 2$^3$ = 16

8 + 3$^3$ = 35

Resultant value is 21635

**Step 6: **Product of the digits in step 5.

2 x 1 x 6 x 3 x 5 = 180

**Step 7: **Sum of the digits in step 6.

1 + 8 + 0 = 9

Similarly,

Product of the digits in step 5 of new input = 4 x 1 x 1 x 3 x 6

= 72

Hence, the correct answer is Option C

**Question 11:Â **What is the difference between the cube of the number in Step 7 and the product of the digits in Step 6 of the new input?

a)Â 715

b)Â 835

c)Â 675

d)Â 925

e)Â None of the above

**11)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

**Solution:**

The logic here is

**Step 1: **First number is the resultant of numbers in first two boxes. Remaining numbers are obtained similarly. Starting numbers of the resultant number in Step 1 are the sum of squares of the first number in the first box and second number in the second box of the input. Ending numbers of the resultant number in Step 1 are the sum of squares of the second number in the first box and first number in the second box of the input.

Ex: 6$^2$ + 3$^2$ = 45, 8$^2$ + 1$^2$ = 65 $\rightarrow$ 4565

**Step 2:** Sum of the numbers of first two boxes and last two boxes respectively.

4565 + 5397 = 9962

5397 + 2665 = 8062

**Step 3: **Positive difference of the cubes of the respective digits of the boxes in Step 2.

9$^3$ – 8$^3$ = 217

9$^3$ – 0$^3$ = 729

6$^3$ – 6$^3$ = 0

2$^3$ – 2$^3$ = 0

Resultant value is 21772900

**Step 4: **Sum of the squares of the digits in step 3.

2$^2$ + 1$^2$ + 7$^2$ + 7$^2$ + 2$^2$ + 9$^2$ + 0$^2$ + 0$^2$ = 4 + 1 + 49 + 49 + 4 + 81 + 0 + 0 = 188

**Step 5: **The digits of the are added with 1$^3$, 2$^3$, 3$^3$ from left to right.

1 + 1$^3$ = 2

8 + 2$^3$ = 16

8 + 3$^3$ = 35

Resultant value is 21635

**Step 6: **Product of the digits in step 5.

2 x 1 x 6 x 3 x 5 = 180

**Step 7: **Sum of the digits in step 6.

1 + 8 + 0 = 9

Similarly,

Difference between the cube of the number in Step 7 and the product of the digits in Step 6 of the new input = 9$^3$ – (7 x 2)

= 729 – 14

= 715

Hence, the correct answer is Option A

Ending numbers of the resultant number in Step 1 are the sum of squares of the second number in the first box and first number in the second box of the input.

Ex: 6$^2$ + 3$^2$ = 45, 8$^2$ + 1$^2$ = 65 $\rightarrow$ 4565

**Step 2:** Sum of the numbers of first two boxes and last two boxes respectively.

4565 + 5397 = 9962

2$^3$ – 2$^3$ = 0

Resultant value is 21772900

**Step 4: **Sum of the squares of the digits in step 3.

2$^2$ + 1$^2$ + 7$^2$ + 7$^2$ + 2$^2$ + 9$^2$ + 0$^2$ + 0$^2$ = 4 + 1 + 49 + 49 + 4 + 81 + 0 + 0 = 188

**Step 5: **The digits of the are added with 1$^3$, 2$^3$, 3$^3$ from left to right.

1 + 1$^3$ = 2

8 + 2$^3$ = 16

8 + 3$^3$ = 35

Resultant value is 21635

**Step 6: **Product of the digits in step 5.

2 x 1 x 6 x 3 x 5 = 180

**Step 7: **Sum of the digits in step 6.

1 + 8 + 0 = 9

Similarly,

Difference between different four digitÂ numbers obtained in Step 2 of the new input = 9038 – 8763 = 275

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

**Question 13:Â **What will be the sum of the digits of the Step 4 of new input?

a)Â 12

b)Â 10

c)Â 14

d)Â 18

e)Â None of the above

**13)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

**Solution:**

**Step 1: **First number is the resultant of numbers in first two boxes. Remaining numbers are obtained similarly. Starting numbers of the resultant number in Step 1 are the sum of squares of the first number in the first box and second number in the second box of the input. Ending numbers of the resultant number in Step 1 are the sum of squares of the second number in the first box and first number in the second box of the input.

Ex: 6$^2$ + 3$^2$ = 45, 8$^2$ + 1$^2$ = 65 $\rightarrow$ 4565

**Step 2:** Sum of the numbers of first two boxes and last two boxes respectively.

4565 + 5397 = 9962

5397 + 2665 = 8062

**Step 3: **Positive difference of the cubes of the respective digits of the boxes in Step 2.

9$^3$ – 8$^3$ = 217

9$^3$ – 0$^3$ = 729

6$^3$ – 6$^3$ = 0

2$^3$ – 2$^3$ = 0

Resultant value is 21772900

**Step 4: **Sum of the squares of the digits in step 3.

2$^2$ + 1$^2$ + 7$^2$ + 7$^2$ + 2$^2$ + 9$^2$ + 0$^2$ + 0$^2$ = 4 + 1 + 49 + 49 + 4 + 81 + 0 + 0 = 188

**Step 5: **The digits of the are added with 1$^3$, 2$^3$, 3$^3$ from left to right.

1 + 1$^3$ = 2

8 + 2$^3$ = 16

8 + 3$^3$ = 35

Resultant value is 21635

**Step 6: **Product of the digits in step 5.

2 x 1 x 6 x 3 x 5 = 180

**Step 7: **Sum of the digits in step 6.

1 + 8 + 0 = 9

Similarly,

Sum of the digits of the Step 4 of new input = 3 + 3 + 9 = 15

Hence, the correct answer is Option E
