# Tricks to Solve Alpha-Numerical Series

In this article we learn how to solve Alpha-numerical series easily by developing tricks

### Question:

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. Which letter will be 4th to the right of 11th letter from your left hand of English Alphabets?

TRICK:
If both are in opposite direction (add)
=To from
=4R + 11L
=15L =O (Multiples of 5) (Use this trick to find 15L)

 E J O T Y 5 10 15 20 25

#### 2. Which letter will be 6th to the left of 20th letter from your left of English Alphabets?

TRICK:
If both are in same direction (subtract)
=To From
=6L - 20L
=14L=N (Multiples of 5) (Use this trick to find 14L)

 E J O T Y 5 10 15 20 2

#### 3. Which letter will be 5th to the left of 12th letter from your right of English Alphabets?

=TO From
=5L + 12R
=17R= (Find from reverse alphabetical order) (How we find if it is from right side)
Step 1:
find 17L from Multiples of 5

 E J O T Y 5 10 15 20 25

17L is Q, Find 17R from step 2.

Step 2:

find 17R from
2. BoY
3. CraX
4. DeW
5. EVen
6. FUll
8. High School
9. Indian Railways
10. Jungle Queen
11. KanPur
12. LOve
13. MaN

#### 4. Which letter will be 3rd to the right of 15th from the right?

=TO from
=3R - 15R
=12R=O (Since from Reverse alphabetical order)

CASE 2
Study the following digit-letter-symbol sequence carefully and answer the questions given below:
2 R * C f 8 E \$ G 2 # 4 9 L c % B < K 1 & A W ? P e + Q @ 7 F 6

Question 1:
If the first half of the series is written in reverse order, then which Element will be twenty-first from the right end?

#### TRICK:

No need of writing the series in reverse order
Step 1: Count the total number of alpha-numericals =32
Step 2: As we are considering half of the series, divide by two =32/2=16
Required 21R = 16R+5R
Instead of taking 5R take 5L (since first half is reversed)

### Question 2:

Which element will be twenty-first from the right end, if second half of the series is reversed?

#### TRICK:

No need of writing the series in reverse order
Step 1: Count the total number of alpha-numericals =32
Step 2: As we are considering half of the series, divide by two =32/2=16
Required 21R = 16R+5R
16R+5R (belongs to first half do not reverse) =4 (Answer)

### Question 3:

If the above sequence is written in reverse order, then which element will be 5th to the right of 16th element from the right end?

#### TRICK:

If both are in same direction (subtract)
=To From
=5R - 16R
=11R
=11L (trick: To reverse order change R to L)

### Question 4:

Which element is seventh to the left of sixteenth element from the right in the above sequence?

#### TRICK:

If both are in opposite direction (add)
=To From
=7L + 16R
