Explanation

1. The second number is the product of the digits of the first
2. 2/23/234/2345/23456/234567
3. Since S is shorter than only two persons (T and Q), he must be the third in descending order of height.
4. 5. In all others the second letter comes two letters after the first in the alphabet.
6. 2 3  5  7  8   9  3  4  5  7  6  1  9  3  5  7  4  8  3  2  5  7  8  8   9  2  5
7. The digits are 4, 1 and 8 respectively. From this we get 841, which is the square of 29. Now, 29 has 2 in the ten’s place.
8. Either S or R.
9.

 5 9 3 4 6 8 1 7 \$ A D % F H B #

10.
20  K 16   T  8   M  4   R   6
→ 20 – 16 × 8 ÷ 4 + 6
→ 20 – 32 + 6 = -6
