C ! 2 I Z 5 ~ − 6 M A + 4 9 G F 3 8 O > B < 7 X \$
Logic: Second element is second to the right of the first element and third element is immediate left of the first element.
Thus option E 'B<O' does not follow the logic.         Ans: E

After dropping all the elements which are on the prime position in the above sequence, we have
1 7 Q \$ F 3 G P 6 ~ Y + O M R 9 > 8 C (
Here, the element which is 13th from the left end is O.        Ans: E

1 B I 7 ! Q Z \$ F 3 2 G K P 6 ~ J Y 4 + O M 5 R 9 > 8 C H ( U
After comparing the given options with the given sequence.
We can say that the pattern of the second element is the immediate next element of the first element and the third element has the same rank from the right end as the second element from the left end.
