Explanation Option [b] is correct. Letter H is 8th in order of alphabetical series. Taking the sum of number placed vertically outside the circle + 8; multiplying it by the number on the right; then subtracting the number on the left from the product, gives the number inside the circle, i.e., Step I    $\to$   $4+8+4=16$ Step II               $\to$  $16~\times \,5=80$ Step III              $\to$   $8010=70$ Letter C is 3rd in order, so Step I   $\to$   $2+3+5=10$ Step II               $\to$   $10~\times \,3=30$ Step III              $\to$   $304=26$ Similarly, J is 10th in order, so Step I    $\to$   $8+10+6=24$ Step I!  $\to$   $24\times ?$ Step III $\to$   $(24\times ?)-6=90$ Simplifying the above equation: $24\times ?=90+6,\text{ }i.e.,\text{ }96\Rightarrow ?=96\div ~24=4$
