**Solution-**
In first step:

Multiply 1st and 2nd number of box 1 and 4 respectively: 5 × 4 = 20

Multiply 2nd and 1st number of box 1 and 4 respectively: 3 × 2 = 6

Multiply 1st and 2nd number of box 2 and 5 respectively: 7 × 3 = 21

Multiply 2nd and 1st number of box 2 and 5 respectively: 2 × 4 = 8

Multiply 1st and 2nd number of box 3 and 6 respectively: 6 × 7 = 42

Multiply 2nd and 1st number of box 3 and 6 respectively: 2 × 3 = 6In second step:

Add 1st and 3rd number of box 1 and subtract it from 2nd number of box 1 = 6 + 2 = 8, 8 – 0 = 8

Add 1st and 3rd number of box 2 and subtract it from 2nd number of box 2 = 8 + 2 = 10, 10 – 1 = 9

Add 1st and 3rd number of box 3 and subtract it from 2nd number of box 3 = 6 + 4 = 10, 10 – 2 = 8

Multiply 1st and 2nd number of box 1 and 4 respectively: 5 × 4 = 20

Multiply 2nd and 1st number of box 1 and 4 respectively: 3 × 2 = 6

Multiply 1st and 2nd number of box 2 and 5 respectively: 7 × 3 = 21

Multiply 2nd and 1st number of box 2 and 5 respectively: 2 × 4 = 8

Multiply 1st and 2nd number of box 3 and 6 respectively: 6 × 7 = 42

Multiply 2nd and 1st number of box 3 and 6 respectively: 2 × 3 = 6In second step:

Add 1st and 3rd number of box 1 and subtract it from 2nd number of box 1 = 6 + 2 = 8, 8 – 0 = 8

Add 1st and 3rd number of box 2 and subtract it from 2nd number of box 2 = 8 + 2 = 10, 10 – 1 = 9

Add 1st and 3rd number of box 3 and subtract it from 2nd number of box 3 = 6 + 4 = 10, 10 – 2 = 8

In third step:

Divide 2nd number from 1st number = 9 ÷ 8 = 1.12

Divide 3rd number from 2nd number = 8 ÷ 9 = 0.89

Divide 2nd number from 1st number = 9 ÷ 8 = 1.12

Divide 3rd number from 2nd number = 8 ÷ 9 = 0.89

In fourth step:

Subtract both the numbers = 1.12 – 0.89 = 0.23

Subtract both the numbers = 1.12 – 0.89 = 0.23

In first step:

Multiply 1st and 2nd number of box 1 and 4 respectively: 6 × 4 = 24

Multiply 2nd and 1st number of box 1 and 4 respectively: 4 × 1 = 4

Multiply 1st and 2nd number of box 2 and 5 respectively: 4 × 7 = 28

Multiply 2nd and 1st number of box 2 and 5 respectively: 3 × 3 = 9

Multiply 1st and 2nd number of box 3 and 6 respectively: 3 × 6 = 18

Multiply 2nd and 1st number of box 3 and 6 respectively: 8 × 1 = 8

In second step:

Add 1st and 3rd number of box 1 and subtract it from 2nd number of box 1 = 4 + 2 = 6, 6 – 4 = 2

Add 1st and 3rd number of box 2 and subtract it from 2nd number of box 2 = 9 + 2 = 11, 11 – 1 = 3

Add 1st and 3rd number of box 3 and subtract it from 2nd number of box 3 = 8 + 1 = 9, 9 – 8 = 1

Add 1st and 3rd number of box 1 and subtract it from 2nd number of box 1 = 4 + 2 = 6, 6 – 4 = 2

Add 1st and 3rd number of box 2 and subtract it from 2nd number of box 2 = 9 + 2 = 11, 11 – 1 = 3

Add 1st and 3rd number of box 3 and subtract it from 2nd number of box 3 = 8 + 1 = 9, 9 – 8 = 1

In third step:

Divide 2nd number from 1st number = 3 ÷ 2 = 1.5

Divide 3rd number from 2nd number = 1 ÷ 3 = 0.33

Divide 2nd number from 1st number = 3 ÷ 2 = 1.5

Divide 3rd number from 2nd number = 1 ÷ 3 = 0.33

In fourth step:

Subtract both the numbers = 1.5 – 0.33 = 1.17

Subtract both the numbers = 1.5 – 0.33 = 1.17

**Direction (6-10):**In each question below is given a group of numbers / symbols followed by five combinations of letter codes numbered (1), (2), (3), (4) and (5). You have to find out which of the combinations correctly represents the group of numbers / symbols based on the following coding system and the steps given and mark the number of that combination as your answer:

Steps to be followed as per the given order:

(1) All the numbers are to be sorted in ascending order and then written in the place of numbers only

(2) In the series obtained after the step one if it contains number preceded by symbol than both should interchange

(3) In the series obtained after the step two if odd number is followed by even number then subtract the lower number from higher number to obtain the new series thus formed. The new series which will be formed by following the above steps will be then coded according to the table values given above.
