  1. If '+' means '÷', 'x' means '+', '-' means 'x' and '÷' means '-', then which of the following equation is correct?
    1. 36 + 6 x 3 + 2 = 20
    2. 36 + 6 - 3 x 2 = 20
    3. 36 x 6 + 3 - 2 < 20
    4. 36 x 6 + 3 x 2 > 20
Correct Option: B

Solve all option one by one,
36 + 6 - 3 x 2 = 20
After changing the symbol as per question,
36 ÷ 6 x 3 + 2 = 20
Apply the BODMAS rule,
⇒ 6 x 3 + 2 = 20
⇒ 18 + 2 = 20
⇒ 20 = 20
