# PROBLEMS BASED ON ALPHABET

Generally in Alphabetical questions a letter series is given in the English alphabets from A to Z. We have to find out the letters satisfying certain given conditions as regards their positions in the given sequence.

Some Models:
Directions : Following questions are based on the general English alphabet series.

Hint:   5R   /   6R    /    7R    /   8R     Here, R =
(I)        (II)       (III)      (IV)    Reversed
18th letter of the given series comes in section (1)
= 12th from the left in English alphabet i.e., L. 2(I)+2(II)+(III)+1−18 = 12.

Hint:  8R  /  7R    /  6R    /  5R

(I)      (II)     (III)     (IV)

25 - (7 + 6 + 5);

= 25 - 18;

(I)        (II)        (III)       (IV)
14th letter from the right comes in section B
(I) + 14 - { (III) + (IV)}
7 + 14 - 11 = 10th letter i.e J

(I)       (II)       (III)       (IV)       (V)       (VI)        (VII)    (VIII)      (IX)
17 + 5 - 19 = 3rd letter from the right end of the given series
{(1) + ... + (VII) } + 3 - (IX)
21 + 3 - 2 = 22; i.e V.

(12 - 18): Both half has been reversed.
M L K J I H G F E D C B A Z Y X WV U T S R Q P O N
Directions : If the first half of the English alphabet is reversed and then next portion of English alphabet is reversed so as 'A' takes the position of 'M' and 'N' takes the position of 'Z' then answer the following questions.
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

1) U       2) V      3) C        4) D        5) None of these
Ans: 2.
Hint: We have to count from the left and we have to find out 18th element from the left. Suppose first and second sections of the English alphabet is α and β respectively.
2 α + β + 1 − required position of element from the left
26 + 13 + 1 − 18 = 22; i.e V

1) Y           2) B         3) P        4) L            5) None of these
Ans: 1.
Hint: Here we have to count from the right. We have to find out 12th letter from the right, means 15th letter from the left.
= 2α +β +15 = 25. Hence 25th letter of the alphabet is Y.
