The second and fourth digits of the number 54867 are 4 and 6 respectively. If we form a number using these digits, we get 46. Since the square root of 46 is not an integer, it is not possible to form a perfect square of an even number using the second and fourth digits of the number 54867. Therefore, the correct answer is "There is no such number".

Explanation
Suresh is five ranks below Samir, who is the top student. This means that Samir is at rank 1 and Suresh is at rank 6. Since there are 40 students in total, Suresh's rank from the bottom can be calculated by subtracting his rank from the total number of students. Therefore, Suresh's rank from the bottom is 40 - 6 = 34. However, this contradicts the given answer of 35th, so the correct answer cannot be determined based on the given information.

Explanation
In the number 825647, there are two digits (2 and 4) that are as far away from the left end as when they are arranged in ascending order. When we arrange the digits in ascending order, we get 245678. The digits 2 and 4 are in the same positions in both the original number and the ascending order arrangement, so they fulfill the given condition. Therefore, the answer is Two.

### How many numbers from 1-40 will be left out if all those numbers each of which is exactly divisible by 4 and /or has 4 as one of the digits are dropped

• A.

27

• B.

30

• C.

31

• D.

28

• E.

None of these

D. 28
Explanation
If we consider the numbers from 1-40, we can see that the numbers divisible by 4 are 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, and 36. There are 9 numbers divisible by 4.
Now, let's consider the numbers that have 4 as one of the digits. These numbers are 4, 14, 24, 34, and 40. There are 5 numbers with 4 as one of the digits.
However, we have counted the number 4 twice, so we need to subtract 1 from the total count.
Therefore, the total number of numbers to be dropped is 9 + 5 - 1 = 13.
So, the number of numbers left out is 40 - 13 = 27.
Hence, the correct answer is 27.

R says that N is sitting towards the right of T. However, it is not clear whether R is sitting to the left or right of T. Therefore, it is not possible to determine who is sitting towards the right of N based on the given information. Hence, the answer is "None of these".
