**Q1. If ‘+’stands for division, ‘÷’ stands for multiplication, ‘x’ stands for subtraction and ‘-‘ stands for addition, which one of the following is correct?**

(a) 18 ÷ 6 – 7 + 5 x 2 = 20

(b) 18 + 6 ÷ 7 x 5 – 2 = 18

(c) 18 x 6 + 7 ÷ 5 -2 = 16

(d) 18 ÷ 6 x 7 + 5 -2 = 22

**Answer: Option (b) **18 + 6 ÷ 7 x 5- 2 = 18

**Explanation: **After conversion

18 ÷ 6 x 7 – 5 + 2= 18

or, 3 x 7- 5 + 2 = 18

or, 21-5 + 2=18

or, 23-5 = 18

or, 18 = 18

(a) 20

(b) 18

(c) 108

(d) 22

**Answer: Option: d**

**Explanation:**

Given expression

20-5÷ 18 x (3 + 2) = ?

After changing the signs

? = 20 + 5- 18 ÷ (3 x 2)

or, ? = 20 + 5- 18 ÷ 6

or, ? = 20 + 5- 3

or, ? = 25 -3 = 22
