Solution

S1. A. (d)
Sol. 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 11th letters of the given word are E, A, P, R, O. Hence the word OPERA can be formed. So ‘O’ will be the first letter of the word.

S2. A. (b)
Sol. The 3rd, 7th, 8th, 9th and 11th letters of the given word are R, N, D, I and G. Hence the word GRIND can be coined. So the last letter of the word is ‘D’.

S3. A. (b)
Sol. 2nd, 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th, 11th and 12th letters of the given word are O, R, I, U, S, E and S. So the word formed is SERIOUS. So the 6th letter of this word is ‘U’.

S4. A. (a)
