Explanations:

1-5:

6-10:
This is a system of binary & decimal no. converter -
0 – 0 - #
1 – 1 - &
2 – 10 - &#
3 – 11 - &&
4 – 100 - &##
5 – 101 - &#&
Starting from the right side, each digit is multiplied with power of 2 (starting with 20, 21 , 22 and so on. Then all these are added to form decimal system.

1              0              1
So, as for 5 - &#&, that means 101            ->            (1x20)  + (0x21) + (1x22)= 5
Same as,
ans. 6-  1010011 = (1x 20) +(1x21) +(0x22) +(0x23) +(1x24) +(0x25) +(1x26)
=1 + 2 + 0 + 0 + 16 + 0 + 64 = 83

Same as others.
