Direction (8-10) : In each of the following questions, two rows of numbers are given. The resultant number in each row is to be worked out separately based on the following rules and the question below the rows of numbers are to be answered. The operation of numbers progress from left to right.
Rules:
(i) If an odd number is followed by a composite odd number (a non prime number), they are to be multiplied.
(ii) If an even number is followed by an odd number, which is not a perfect square, they are to be added.
(iii) If an even number is followed by a number which is the perfect square, the even number is to be subtracted from the perfect square.
(iv) If an odd number is followed by a prime odd number, the first number is to be divided by the second number.
(y) If an odd number is followed by an even number, the second one is to be subtracted from the first one,
[After the operation on the first two numbers, the resultant is to be considered as the number for applying operation between the second number (the number obtained after performing operation between the first and second numbers given in the question) and the third number.]
For example:
Consider the following question :
38 64 7
49 38 a
If a is the ^resultant of the first row, what is the resultant of the second row ?
(1)363 (2) 44
(3) 22 (4) 3
(5) 31
Here, after performing operation between the first two numbers, i.e. 38 and 64, the resultant obtained  is 26. Now 26 is to be considered for performing the operation between 26 and 7 (the number given in the question). The answer thus obtained here would be 33. Now 33 is to be considered as 'a' and operations are to be performed in the similar fashion between the numbers given in the second row. The answer obtained here after performing all the operations would be 363, thus (1) would be the correct answer.
