• RELATIVE POSITION BETWEEN TWO ALHABETS

    When the relative position of two alphabets is given and one is required to find the alphabet. The first step is to find out from which side of the alphabet series are we to find the required alphabet, from left side or the right side. The second step is to which side are we to look further; towards left or right. If we are looking for an alphabet from left side of the series and the required one is to its right, then we add the right position to the position from left and if it is to its left, then we subtract from it.

    GENERAL PATTERN: WHICH ALPHABET IS ¬–TO THE LEFT/RIGHT OF––FROM LEFT / RIGHT

    So for this, we can make the following as the general rule:-

    TO THE FROM THE OPERATION POSITION FROM
    LEFT RIGHT ADD FROM RIGHT
    RIGHT LEFT ADD FROM LEFT
    LEFT LEFT SUBTRACT FROM LEFT
    RIGHT RIGHT SUBTRACT FROM RIGHT

    Following are some of the examples:-

    Ex 27: Which alphabet is 6th to left of 17th from left?

    Ans 27: Both positions are left. So according to the above table; 17 – 6 = 11 i.e. K

    Ex 28: Which alphabet is 8th to right of 10th from left?

    Ans 28: One position is from left and other is from the right. So according to the above table; 8 + 10 = 18th from left i.e. R

    Ex 29: Which alphabet is 4th to left of 20th from right?

    Ans 29: One position is from left and other is from the right. So according to the above table; 4 + 20 = 24th from right = 3rd from left (27 – 24) i.e. C.

    Ex 30: Which alphabet is 9th to right of 18th from right?

    Ans 30: Both positions are from right. So according to the above table 18 – 9 = 9th from right = 18th from left (27 – 9) i.e. R

    Ex 31: Which alphabet is 3rd to left of 22nd from right?

    Ans 31: One position is from left and other is from the right. So according to the above table; 22 + 3 = 25th from right i.e. 27-25 = 2nd from left i.e. B.
