SHOES – NAIL = (19 + 8 + 15 + 5 + 19) – (14 + 1 + 9 + 12) = 30

BRING – NAIL = (2 + 18 + 9 + 14 + 7) – (14 + 1 + 9 + 12) = 14

**6) Answer: A**

56 Q 14 R 7 S 18 P 12 = 34

⇒ 56 ÷ 14 × 7 + 18 – 12 = 34

⇒ 4 × 7 + 18 – 12 = 34

⇒ 28 + 18 – 12 = 34

⇒ 46 – 12 = 34

⇒ 34 = 34

**7) Answer: B**

9 + 27 ÷ 3 > 4 × 3

⇒ 9 + 9 > 12

(4 × 6 + 5) × 5 = 29 × 5 = 145

(7 + 3 × 8) × 5 = 31 × 5 = 155

(9 × 10 + 4) × 5 = 94 × 5 = 470

**9) Answer: B**

(8 × 9) × 3 + (9 – 8 )^{2} = 217

(6 × 10) × 3 + (10 – 6 )^{2} = 196

(11 × 7) × 3 + (7 – 11)^{2} = 247

**10) Answer: B**

3×4)/2= 6 ; 6/2= 3; 3^{2} = 9

(12×7)/6= 14 ; 14/2= 7; 7^{2} =49
