Verbal Reasoning Alpha Numeric Sequence Puzzle:

## Verbal Reasoning Alpha Numeric Sequence Puzzle:

In Alpha numeric sequence puzzle, a mix up sentence consisting of some letters, numbers and symbols are given followed by some certain questions based on it.

Based on following types, questions are categorized:

• Satisfying certain conditions in the given sequence, it is required to find elements (letters, numbers or symbols.
• At a certain given relative position in the sequence, it is need to determine the element.
• By converting the hidden part in relation to the position of the elements in the sequence, it is required to complete a series consisting of terms formed by a combination of the elements of the sequence.
• By finding the common property which other combinations share as per their positions in the given sequence, It is required to find the odd combination from among a given set of combinations of elements.
• To determine the analogical relationship between a given pair of combination of elements, later find a combination which carry same relationship with another given combination.

Alphanumeric sequence is a sequence which consists of both alphabets and numbers. In this sequence, we can also add some symbols along with alphabets and numbers.

For example we can make an alphanumeric sequence as follows –

A \$ E R 9 * T 5 F 6 @ D 8

In the above sequence, we can see that there are numbers, alphabets, and symbols. These types of sequences are called Alphanumeric Sequence. We can make many sequences like this and can deduce questions based on the sequences.

Important Points to Remember

Let’s have an alphanumeric sequence –

A \$ E R 9 * T 5 F 6 @ D 8

Questions regarding this chapter can come in this way –

1. Which element is nth from the left of the sequence?
2. Which element is nth from the right of the sequence?
3. Which element is mth to the right of nth from the left of the sequence?
4. Which element is mth to the left of nth from the left of the sequence?
5. Which element is mth to the right of nth from the right of the sequence?
6. Which element is mth to the left of nth from the right of the sequence?
7. A precedes B
8. B is preceded by A
9. B follows A
10. A is followed by B

To solve questions like this, we have to watch the sequence thoroughly and answer accordingly.

1. Which element is nth from the left of the sequence?

To get the answer of the above question, we have to look at the sequence from the left side and have to count the exact number that is asked in the question.

1. Which element is nth from the right of the sequence?

To get the answer of the above question, we have to look at the sequence from the right side and have to count the exact number that is asked in the question.

1. Which element is mth to the right of nth from the left of the sequence?

To get the answer for such type of questions, we have to find out the nth element from the left side of the sequence and then find out the mth element to the right of that particular element.

1. Which element is mth to the left of nth from the left of the sequence?

To get the answer for such type of questions, we have to find out the nth element from the left side of the sequence and then find out the mth element to the left of that particular element.

1. Which element is mth to the right of nth from the right of the sequence?

To get the answer for such type of questions, we have to find out the nth element from the right side of the sequence and then find out the mth element to the right of that particular element.

1. Which element is mth to the left of nth from the right of the sequence?

To get the answer for such type of questions, we have to find out the nth element from the right side of the sequence and then find out the mth element to the left of that particular element.

1. If it is written that A precedes B then it means A is placed before B.
2. Similarly if it is written that B is preceded by A then it means A is placed before B.
3. If it is written that B follows A then it means B is placed after A.
4. If it is written that A is followed by B then B is placed after A.

These ten type of questions are normally asked in this chapter. Whether it is of a type or b type or c type or j type we have to read the question carefully and see the sequence and finally we can get the answer according to the question.

Sample Questions

Study the following arrangement carefully and answer the question given below –

6 R 0 T 4 A 8 % B F 1 E # W @ 9 H I \$ M N * 3 2 V \$ 5 G P 7 Q

1. How many such consonants are there in the above arrangement, each of which is immediately preceded by a consonant and immediately followed by a number?

1. How many such vowels are there in the above arrangement, each of which is immediately preceded by a letter but immediately not followed by a symbol?

A None

B One

C Two

D Three

Explanation

According to question

Letter-Vowels-Letter/Number

R – O – T

1. Which of the following is the fourth to left of the twelfth from the left end?

A 8 B B C 2 D %

Explanation According to question.

A 4 B 5 C V D A

Explanation

According to question.

R – R = R

10 – 5 = 5th from right end after deleting all the symbols is 5.

This question is based on the following letter /symbol/number sequence. Study it carefully and answer the question.

M 3 R # A P 4 9 @ K D 1 U H 5 \$ 2 N \$ W E Q 6 T V 7 * 8 B X

1. Which of the following elements is the fourth to the right of 12th from right end?

A 9 B 6 C 5 D \$

Explanation

Remember, R12 – R4 = R = 6
