Question

Directions: In the following question, 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) dklbjz
(2)INFORM    (B) cbxkqy
(3)MOTHER    (C) ygzaxc
(4)RIGHTS    (D) bjdcga
(5)TAILOR    (E) wcpybv
(6)GARDEN    (F) vzcjlk

What is the code for the letter S?

A

a.

B

z.

C

d.

D

x.

Soln.
Ans: c

DESIGN contains an S, but out of the four options, its code[dklbjz] contains only d and z. So we can be sure that S = d or z. Next find a code that contains either d or z, but not both. So, code for MOTHER contains z but not d, we can therefore conclude that S is not z. So it must be d.
