1. These questions involve interchange of letters in a word at particular locations and also interchanging letters adjacent to those particular locations.Certain other conditions may also be given

For eg.

Let the word be ABBAABA

If we apply 25 on this, it means we have to interchange the letters at positions 2 and 5, also we have to change the letters adjacent to positions 2 and 5 i.e.from A to B and B to A.

A B B A A B after Step 1 i.e interchange of 2 and 5 becomes AABABB

Now change adjacent elements of 2 and 5...finally answer becomes
