### Question

In a certain code language 'spare the rod spoil' means '419 952 962 543', 'spoil child bad future' means '836 581 543 754', 'future good better always' means '673 581 817 168' and 'children play always evening' means '319 168 125 981'. Then '543 168' is the code for which words?

A

spoil always

B

play better

C

good the

D

children evening

Soln.
Ans: a

'spoil' is common to items 1 and 2. So 'spoil' = '543'. Next we can see that 'always' is common to items 3 and 4. So 'always' = '168'. Hence '543 168' should be 'spoil always' or 'always spoil'
