~ Directions for Q. No. 1 to 5 : 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 given using a particular rule. The order of the smaller letter have been placed in jumbled up form. You have 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) uklbjz
(2) INFORM          (B) cbxkqy
(3) MOTHER         (C) ygzwxc
(4) RIGHTS            (D) bjucgw
(5) TAILOR            (E) wcpybv
(6) GARDEN         (F) vzcjlk

1. What is the code for the letter N ?
(a) u (b) k (c) c (d) g

1 (b) In statements (1) and (2), common letters are I and N and common codes are band k. Therefore  it is clear that IN stand for bk but not respectively. From statement (6), it is clear that the word has letter Nand code k in its coding. Hence, code for N is k.

2. What is the code for the letter F ?
(a) I (b) b (c) q (d) g

2 (c) In the statement (2), it is clear that the word has letter F in it, which is not contained by any other word. Similarly, its code has letter q, which is not contained by any other code. Hence, F stands for q.

3. What is the code for the letter 0 ?
(a) y (b) k (c) v (d) c

3 (a) From statements (3) and (4), it is clear that TOR = ywc. From statement (2), OR = yc. From statement (6), R = c. Hence, 0 = y.

4. What is rhe code for the letter S ?
(a) z (b) w (c) u (d) x

4 (c) From statements (1) and (4), it is clear that STG = ubj. From question (1) we have already found that I = b. Therefore, SG = uj. Now, from statement (6), G = j, therefore S = u.

5. What is the code for the letter G ?
(a) I (b) p (c) b (d) j

5 (d) Same as in Q. No.4

~ Directions for Q. No. 6 to 11 : The following questions are based on the pattern as used for previous questions. Understand the coding pattern and answer the questions.

Column I                   Column II
(1) FAMOUS              (A) jcqhxp
(2) SATIRE                (B) hqdbyn
(3) FRIGHT               (C) ybcnke
(4) TANGLE              (D) zewhnd
(5) ROVING               (E) epbrnyw
(6) HUNTER             (F) wdnbxk

6. What is the code used for the letter M ?
(a) q (b) x (c) j (d) e

6 (c) From statement (1) we know that the word FAMOUS has the letter M which is not common in any other words, and from its coding we see that j is the letter which is not common in any other’ coding. Hence, M stands for j.

7. What is the code used for the letter E ?
(a) d (b) n (c) b (d) k

7 (a) From statements (2) and (4), ATE = hdn. From statement (6), TE = dn. From statement (3), T = n. Hence, E = d.

8. What is the code used for the letter F ?
(a) w (b) p (c) d (d) c

8 (d) From statements (1) and (3), F = c.

9. What is the code used for the letter A?
(a) h (b) q (c) b (d) n

9 (a) From statements (2) and (4), ATE hdn. From statement (6), TE = dn. Therefore, A = h.

10. What is the code used for the letter N ?
(a)e   (b)p  (c)m  (d)w

10 (d) From statements (5) and (6), RN bw. From statement (4), N = w.

11. What is the code used for the letter U?
(a) d (b) n (c) b (d) x

11 (d) From statements (1) and (6), U = x.

Directions for Q. No. 12 to 19 : 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 1. 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) abi
(2) ADDRESS         (B) cjrnv
(3) CRUX                (C) ikmop
(4) NET                   (D) ijktv
(5) CRONY             (E) jkgotv

12. What is the code for the letter A?
(a) b (b) i (c) v (d) g

13. What is the code for the letter C ?
(a)j (b)k  (c)i (d)t

14. What is the code for the letter D ?
(a) k (b) i (c) rn (d) a

15. What is the code for the letter N ?
(a) a (b) c (c) q (d) i
