A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

If the first half of English alphabet is reversed and the second half of the English alphabet is left undisturbed then which letter will be 10th to the left of 16th letter from the left?

A) H B) F
C) Z D) U
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) H

Explanation:

If the first half of the English alphabet is reversed and the remaining part has been left undisturbed, then it becomes very easy to find out the required letters, if required letters come in the first half. According to the question, 10th to the left of 16th letter from the left = (16 - 10 =) 6th letter from the left in new series.

=>  6th letter from the left in new series = (13 + 1 - 6=) 8th letter from the left in the original series, i.e H.
