K L M N O P Q R S T
a t z w v q r k d c

U V W X Y Z

B

wlpcrj.

C

tedcrj.

D

Soln.
Ans: b

First three letters of the word CEMENT have been coded one position ahead and last three letters one position back in the coding order in relation to their position in the table.

### Question 2

Directions: In column I, some words are given. In column II, their codes are given but they are not arranged in same order in which they are in column I. Study the letters in both the columns and find out the code to the letter given in each of the following questions.

```Column I Column II
(1) SOUND (A) abf
(3) CRUX (C) fkmop
(4) NET (D) fhktv
(5) CRONY (E) hkgotv

```

What is the code for the letter C?

A

h.

B

k.

C

t.

D

f.

Soln.
Ans: a

CRUX is a 4 letter word, so its code is chmv. By inspecting the given options we can safely conclude that h is the answer.

### Question 3

If QUESTION is coded as NXBVQLLQ, how will REPLY be coded?

A

VHSOB.

B

OHMOV.

C

YHMOV.

D

OBMIV.

Soln.
Ans: b

odd positioned letters of the word QUESTION are three letter before in the word NXBVQLLQ, while those at even positions are three letters ahead.

### Question 4

In a code language if POSE is coded as OQNPRTDF, then the TYPE will be coded as :

A

SUXZOQDF.

B

SUXZOQFD.

C

SUXZQOFD.

D

SUXZQODE.

Soln.
Ans: a

The word has been coded in such a way that codes for letters P are OQ (One letter behind and one letter ahead of P in alphabet.) Similarly, codes for O are NP and so on.

### Question 5

In a certain code language 'glass is empty thought' means 'nep noa vuw iaw', 'thought should be positive' means 'saa cuo mal vuw', 'concentrated mind make powerful ' means 'fuf ron dun puv' and 'positive mind more productive' means 'diw saa fuf liz'. Then what is the code for 'mind thought'?

A

fuf vuw

B

noa puv

C

iaw nep

D

liz cuo

Soln.
Ans: a

'fuf' is common to items 3 and 4. So 'fuf' = 'mind'. Next we can see that 'vuw' is common to items 1 and 2. So 'vuw' = 'thought'. Hence 'mind thought' should be 'fuf vuw' or 'vuw fuf'
