### Question 13

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.
