Thanks so much for such a quick reply! I messed up on the question numbers though 😔 Calculated the sample tests as questions as well. My bad.

READ THESE DIRECTIONS:

In the following problem you are told something about the result, and you must determine what the content of the boxes must have been, in order to obtain the result.

In these problems, the expressions (number in box x) is abbreviated as (x)

In each of the following problem no two boxes contain the same number.

The object of the following flow-chart is to rearrange the numbers in boxes 3, 4 and 5in such a fashion that, at the end:

Box 3 will always contain the smallest number,

Box 5 will always contain the largest number,

However, this flow-chart is INCORRECT. As it stands, it will not accomplish the desired purpose. Which one instruction must be changed to correct the flow-chart?

In order to correct this flow-chart, we must change Instruction No. ______

So that the first box-number mentioned in it is box-number ______

And the second box-number mentioned in it is box-number ______

Ankita KatdareI believe this is the question -

Step 1:

2 + 3 = 5

5 in Box 11

Step 2:

8 in Box 10

Step 3:

Yes. The Box number is 1, which is an odd number.

Step 4:

Number in Box 6 = 2

Number in Box 2 = 6

Therefore going to instruction 6

Step 6:

4 + 5 = 9

9 in Box 11.

Step 7:

Box 2 and Box 9

Step 8:

8 !< 9

Therefore, NO.

Step 9:

8 in Box 10.(I think, here we have done a little mistake, we need to put value of Box2 in Box9, i.e. 6 in Box 9)

Answer is

Box 8 has 11

Box 11 has 9

Solved it in a jiffy. Please correct if I am wrong.

So again,

Step 3

No, Box number is even # => Move to step 6

Step 6

9 + 4(box5) = 13

step 7

Box 3 and Box 8

step 8

8 < 8 ? No, go to step 2

step 2

Put "5"(box 3) in Box 8.

step 3

Yes, Box number 3 is odd.

Number in Box 6 = 2

Number in Box 2 = 6

Therefore going to instruction 6

step 6

put 13(box 11) + 4(box 5) in box 11

step 7

Box 4 and Box 7

step 8

7 < 8 ? Yes, => END

value in Box 8: 5

value in Box 11: 17

p.s.: Please correct me if I took any wrong step or misunderstood the question.

I got 14.ANURADHAM89is the answer for problem 4 .............6

Step 1

put 9(box 12) - 0(box 12) in box 2

step 2

Box 12 and Box 14

step 3

We can't let the condition be false as there is no Box 14, so we have to put "14" in box 3 to make the condition 14 == value in Box 3 be true.

so the answer might be 14.
