# Alphanumeric series Questions and Answers

Reasoning is the most important section in competitive exams. One of the prominent face of reasoning questions is Alpha-Numeric series. Question from this section are generally easy and very scoring. There is always high chance of finding 1- 4 questions in any competitive exam from this section. The questions are based on following types of series:

1. Missing Series: Where a series of alphabets and numbers may be given a particular pattern and candidates may be asked to fill in the blank space with the required element

2.Alphabet-Number-Symbol:These questions may also be asked in a format where a series with alphabets, number and different types of symbols (like &, *, \$, etc.) may be given, and questions may be asked based on them

3.Only Alphabetic Series:Series with either missing element or questions with sub-parts may be asked which comprise only English Alphabets and no numbers, set in a specific pattern

4.Only Numerical Series:Series comprising only numbers, set in a specific pattern may be asked the exam. Questions based on this type may be asked in the form of rearrangement of numbers or digits with the number in ascending, descending or any other order

Solution 11:
According to the given series -
8 K L 5 I R T 8 2 % U * 1 S V ^ W N M Z 2 7 \$ F ! B ¥ 0
After deleting all the odd numbers then series will be 8 K l R T 8 2 % U * S V ^ W N Z 2 \$ F ! B ¥ 0 And the 8th element the right end is Z.

Solution 12:
According to the given series -
8 K L 5 I R T 8 2 % U * 1 S V ^ W N M Z 2 7 \$ F ! B ¥ 0
After eliminating all the alphabets then the series will be
8 5 8 2 % * 1 ^ 2 7 \$ ! ¥ 0
And the 10th element from the left side is 7.

Solution 13:
According to the given series -
8 K L 5 I R T 8 2 % U * 1 S V ^ W N M Z 2 7 \$ F ! B ¥ 0 Addition of all the numbers of the given series is 33. (8+5+8+2+1+2+7+0)
Solution 14: According to the given series - 8 K L 5 I R T 8 2 % U * 1 S V ^ W N M Z 2 7 \$ F ! B ¥ 0 And after the digits in the series are multiplied with 3,resultant is 99 (8*3+5*3+8*3+2*3+1*3+2*3+7*3+0*3). Solution 15:
According to the given series -
8 K L 5 I R T 8 2 % U * 1 S V ^ W N M Z 2 7 \$ F ! B ¥ 0
After eliminating all the symbols series will be

And the sum of place value according to alphabet series of the element in given series 7th from left end and 8th from right end is 2 + 7 = 9.(as B=2 ; G= 7)

Solution 20:
According to the given series -
R % 4 ! C 7 B 1 ^ N 3 π C F © 8 S Ω 9 L Q X & G £ D & R 3 * O And the symbols between B and D is 6.

We hope these important alpha numeric series questions and answers helped students gain an insight into the type of questions that constitute Alpha Numeric Series in Reasoning Section. Students may find series section a bit complex in the beginning, regular practice will ensure you are comfortable with the series.
