Tushar and his wife Suniti were peasants in a small village. Both of them were exceptionally good at math. Tushar had a rich friend named Saurabh who lived in the city. Once Saurabh decided to gift them train tickets to visit him in the city. However, to tease them, Saurabh told them that they could have their tickets only if they could correctly guess their seat numbers. More than the opportunity to travel to the city, they were intrigued by the mathematical puzzle set before them. They readily agreed to solve it.

He told them that both the seat numbers were four-digit numbers and the sum of all the 8 digits was 25. Moreover, they were consecutive numbers.

Tushar asked him if the sum of the digits of either seat number was equal to 13, which he answered.

Suniti asked him if there was a single digit, out of the 8, that had appeared more frequently than the rest, which he answered.

Within a minute they successfully deduced the two seat numbers!

What were the seat numbers? Provide a detailed explanation along with your answer.
