Solution:
1). Total numbers shirts = 54 × 28 × 10 × 4 = 60,480
Total number of shirts sold effectively = ( 500 × 4) – ( 250 × 4)
= 2000 – 1000 = 1000
Total numbers of shirts in the shop of that day = 60,480 – 1000 = 59,480
2).
 > ⇒ + < ⇒ - + ⇒ + ^ ⇒ × - ⇒ = × ⇒ > = ⇒ <

Option a)
13 > 7 < 6 + 2 = 3 ^ 4
⇒ 13 + 7 – 6 / 2 < 3 × 4
⇒ 13 + 7 – 3 < 12
⇒ 20 – 3 ≮ 12
Option b)
9 > 5 > 4 – 18 + 9 > 16
⇒ 9 + 5 + 4 = 18 / 9 + 16
⇒ 18 = 2 + 16
Option c)
9 < 3 < 2 > 1 × 8 ^ 2
⇒ 9 – 3 – 2 + 1 > 8 × 2
⇒ 5 ≮ 16
Option d)
28 + 4 ^ 2 = 6 ^ 4 + 2
⇒ 28 / 4 × 2 < 6 × 4 / 2
⇒ 7 × 2 ≮ 6 × 2
3). Age of Mahesh = 60 years
Age of Ram = 60 – 5 = 55 years
Age of Raju = 55 – 4 = 51 years
Age of Babu = 51 – 6 = 45 years
Age difference between Mahesh and Babu = 60 – 45 = 15 years
4).

It is clear that the code for ‘smiling’ is ‘Pi’
5). (15 / 20) / (4 / 5) × ( 2 / 3) × (8 / 5) = ?
? = (15 / 20) × (5 / 4) × ( 2 / 3) × (8 / 5) = 1
6). 1 + 4 = 9 ⇒ 1 + ( 4 × 2) = 9
2 + 8 = 18 ⇒ 2 + ( 8 × 2) = 18
3 + 6 = 15 ⇒ 3 + ( 6 × 2) = 15
Similarly,
7 + 8 ⇒ 7 + ( 8 × 2)
⇒ 7 + 16 = 23
7). P = 16 ⇒ 1 + 6 = 7
K = 11 ⇒ 1 + 1 = 2
R = 18 ⇒ 1 + 8 = 9
O = 15 ⇒ 1 + 5 = 6
Now,
N = 14 ⇒ 1 + 4 = 5
J = 10 ⇒ 1 + 0 = 1
M = 13 ⇒ 1 + 3 = 4
L = 12 ⇒ 1 + 2 = 3
8).
