If 1 + 3 = 34,

5 + 2 = 27,

5 + 1 = 16,

3 + 5 = 58,

then 2 + 4 = ?

A. 56

B. 46

C. 36

D. 64

**Answer: B. 46**

**Solution:**

**Logic ::**

First number on the right hand side is the second number in the left side of equation ( and ) second number on the right side is the sum of two numbers on the left side of the equation.

1 + 3 = 3 (1 + 3) = 34,

5 + 2 = 2 (5 + 2) = 27,

5 + 1 = 1 (5 + 1) = 16,

3 + 5 = 5 (3 + 5) = 58,

then 2 + 4 = 4(2+4) = 46.

Hence, **the answer is 2 + 4 = 46.**
