E. None of these


Answers:

1. D
2. C
3. A
4. D
5. C

Concept Explanation:

  • Each code has symbol, Number and a Letter
  • Now when we analyze the code, each of them has a number in the middle, which implies the total number of letters of that corresponding word.
  • Letter in the end represents the second letter of the corresponding word
  • Finally we have to find the logic behind the symbols used
  • By taking last line into consideration, symbol ‘#’ comes twice, which clearly implies it encrypt the letter ‘T’
  • By comparing 1st line with 3rd line, words ‘Bank Exams’ get repeated, from which we can conclude
  • ! Represents B
  •  @ Represents E
  • Similarly using above logic we can easily find the corresponding codes for all the word.

(Q6-Q10) Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below:


In a certain code language

  • ‘Apple Cat Dog Beetroot’ is written as ‘*T8 ^T3 @E5 %G3’
  • ‘Baroda Axis Canara Dena ’ is written as ‘%A4 @S4 ^A6 *A6’
  • ‘Decoding Aptitude Coding Basel ’ is written as ‘@E8 %G8 *L5 ^G6’
  • ‘Cousin Aunty Brother Dear’ is written as ‘^N6 %R4 *R7 @Y5’


6. Which of the following code for ‘Axis’?
A. ^A6
B. *A6
C. @S4
D. %A4
E. None of these

7. Which of the following code for ‘Cousin’?
A. ^G6
B. ^N6
C. *R7
D. %G3
E. None of these

8. In the given code language, what does the code ‘^A6’ means?
A. Baroda
B. Cousin
C. Beetroot
D. Canara
E. None of these

9. Which of the following is the code for ‘Apple’?
A. @E5
B. *A6
C. *L5
D. @Y5
E. None of these

10. What may be the possible code for ‘SBI’ according to the above coding concept?
A. %I3
B.!I3
C.@I3
D.*I3
E. ^T3

Answers:

6. C
7. B
8. D
9. A
10. B

Concept Explanation:


  • Each code has symbol, Letter and a number
  • Same symbols(@,*,%,^) get repeated for every line, similarly Words starts with same set of alphabets (A,B,C,D) for every line, which clearly says each letter corresponds to a particular symbol.
  • Now when we analyze the code, each of them ends with a number, which implies the total number of letters of that corresponding word.
  • Finally letter in the middle represents the end letter of the corresponding word
  • By the above concept decrypted code for first line will be
  • Apple: @E5
  • Cat: ^T3
  • Dog: %G3
  • Banana: *A6
  • Therefore, Corresponding symbol for the alphabets will be
  • A: @
  • B: *
  • C: ^
  • D: %
  • When we look at 5th Question, ‘SBI’ will also start with a symbol, but it will be other than the above-mentioned four and 2nd, 3rd positions of the code will be ‘I3’, therefore from the given option ‘!I3’ will be the possible code for ‘SBI’.

Points to remember:


  • If difficult coding-decoding question appears, try to find out the logic behind.
  • If you can able to find the logic, it will take just a few seconds to find out the answers.
