# Coding Decoding Quiz Set 20

### Question 1

If ZUBIN is coded as ATCHO, then MEHTA will be coded as -

A

NDHSI.

B

NDGSB.

C

NDISB.

D

NDIUB.

Soln.
Ans: c

Letters at the odd places are coded one letter ahead, and letters at the even places are coded one letter behind in the alphabetical order.

### Question 2

If LINGER is 123456 and FORCE is 56789, then FIERCE is -

A

345677.

B

556789.

C

345667.

D

456678.

Soln.
Ans: d

LINGER and FORCE have E and R in common. Comparing their numeric codes, we find that E and R should be 5/6 or 6/5. This means FIERCE should contain, 665 or 556. The other letters in FIERCE are F, I and C. Comparing with FORCE we can can see that there should be two numbers[F and C] from 7,8 and 9. Similarly, we can see that FIERCE should have one number[I] from LINGER, i.e., from 1,2,3,4.

The answer will have 665 + two numbers from 7,8,9 + one from 1,2,3 and 4. Or it will have 556 + two numbers from 7,8,9 + one from 1,2,3 and 4. We can see that 456678 is the answer.

### Question 3

In a certain code 'li eb eep' means 'roses are blue', 'kis eeh' means 'red flowers' and 'eep tum eeh' means 'flowers are vegetables'.How is 'red' written in that code?
A
eb
B
kis
C
eeh
D
None of these
Soln.
Ans: b
From the second and third sentences, it is clear that 'eeh' stands for 'flowers'.

### Question 4

Directions:

In the following questions, two columns I and II have been given. In column I few words are given and in column II their codes have been hiven using a particular rule. The order of the smaller letter have been placed in jumbled up form. You hace to decode the language and choose the alternative which is equal to the letter asked in the question.

```Column I Column II
(1)DESIGN (A) ukmbjz
(2)INFORM (B) cbxkqy
(3)MOTHER (C) ygzwxc
(4)RIGHTS (D) bjucaw
(5)TAILOR (E) wcpybv
(6)GARDEN (F) vzcjlk
```

What is the code for the letter F?

A

b.

B

m.

C

q.

D

a.

Soln.
Ans: c

Statement 2 contains an F. So out of the four options, b and q are the only possibilities because the code "cbxkqy" contains b and q only. Next we see DESIGN contains no F but its code contains b, hence F ≠ b. We are left with q.

### Question 5

If in a certain language PANKEJ is coded as OBMLDK, how is 'SAROD' coded in that code?

A

RBSPC.

B

RBQPC.

C

TBQPC.

D

RBPQC.

Soln.
Ans: b

The first letter of the word PANKAJ is one letter ahead of the first letter of word OBMLOk but the second letter of the word PANKAJ is one letter before the second letter of the word OBMLOK. This order is further repeated.
