### 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 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.
