# Coding Decoding Quiz Set 12

### Question 1

If FESTIVAL is coded as MBWJUTFG, then OPIUM would be coded as -

A

NOHTL.

B

NTHNO.

C

NVJQP.

D

MUIPO.

Soln.
Ans: c

The word has been coded in such a way that last letter in the coded word is the next letter of the first letter of the given word, second letter is next that of the second last letter of the given word and so on. Hence OPIUM will be coded as NVJQP.

### Question 2

In a certain code, EXPLAINING is written as PXEALNIGNI. How is PRODUCED written in that code?

A

ORPBUDEC.

B

ROPUDECD.

C

ORPUDECD.

D

OPRDUCED.

Soln.
Ans: c

In the coded word, first three letters are reversed, then next two letters are reversed, then again two letters are reversed, and finally three letters are reversed.

### Question 3

In a certain code language 'this is rose garden' means '\$Z@3', 'garden has many flowers' means '74@1' and 'flowers are very colorful' means '81%2'. Then '@ 1' is the code for which words?

A

garden flowers

B

has are

C

rose very

D

colorful is

Soln.
Ans: a

'garden' is common to items 1 and 2. So 'garden' = '@'. Next we can see that 'flowers' is common to items 2 and 3. So 'flowers' = '1'. Hence '@ 1' should be 'garden flowers' or 'flowers garden'

### Question 4

In a certain code language 'faster calculations math methods' means '245 591 573 168', 'calculations without calculator needed' means '671 281 246 573', 'shortcut techniques analytical methods' means '853 169 591 742' and 'calculator not nice tool' means '671 735 865 734'. Then what is the code for 'calculations methods'?

A

573 591

B

169 742

C

281 671

D

168 734

Soln.
Ans: a

'573' is common to items 1 and 2. So '573' = 'calculations'. Next we can see that '591' is common to items 1 and 3. So '591' = 'methods'. Hence 'calculations methods' should be '573 591' or '591 573'

### Question 5

If FLARE is coded as 21, 15, 26, 9, 22, how would BRIEF will be coded ?

A

25, 9, 22, 21, 18.

B

13, 19, 11, 37, 5.

C

5, 37, 11, 19, 13.

D

25, 9, 18, 22, 21.

Soln.
Ans: d

Numbers in the coding show the positions of the respective letters from the end of the alphabetical series.

B = 25, R = 9, I = 18, E = 22, F = 21.
