5.  Which choice provides the answer in the following: If 7 + 2 = 59,  5 + 3 = 28,  9 + 1 = 810,  2 + 1 = 13,  then 5 + 4 = ?

(1) 19

(2) 9

(3) 20

(4) 239

(5) None of these

Ans :  (3)

Explanation :    Here the rule,  7 + 2 = 59 comes as

7 + 2 = (7 - 2) (7 + 2) = 59

Also 5 + 3 = (5 - 3) (5 + 3) = 28

Thus 5 + 4 = (5 - 4) (5 + 4) = 19

Thus (6 + 3) * 6 = 54
