(A) 28

(B) 48

(C) 21

(D) 16

(E) 40

**Q.5 If the digits of each of the five numbers are arranged in ascending order, find the difference between the highest and the smallest number after arrangement.**

(A) 432

(B) 644

(C) 512

(D) 603

(E) 568

**Answer 1. (D)**

**Solution:**

Ascending order: 197 458 620 831 937

Second smallest number = 548

Third digit of the second smallest number = 8

Third highest number = 620

First digit of the third highest number = 6

According to the question,

= 8 × 3 + 6 × 3

= 24 + 18 = 42

**Answer 2. (E)**

**Solution:**

After arranging each digit of the five numbers in descending order,

831 971 854 620 973

Second highest number = 971

Sum of the digits = 9 + 7 + 1 = 17

**Answer 3. (B)**

**Answer 4. (B)**

**Solution:**

Ascending order = 197 458 620 831 937

Fourth highest number = 458

Fourth smallest number = 831

According to the question,

= (4 + 8) × (3 + 1)

= 12 × 4 = 48

**Answer 5. (A)**

**Solution:**

After arranging each digit of the five numbers in ascending order,

138 179 458 026 379

Highest number = 458

Smallest number = 026

Difference = 458 – 026 = 432
