Directions: In a certain instruction system, the different computation processes are written as follows:
I) P % Q \$ R means P is multiplied by the sum of Q and R
II) P Δ Q © R means P is subtracted from Q and the resultant is divided by R
III) P # Q * R means P is added to the resultant when Q is divided by R
IV) P Π Q @ R means the product of Q and R is subtracted from P In each of the questions below, a set of instruction sequence is given. You are required to find out the outcome which should come in place of question mark (?) in each of the given sets of sequence.
