### If NATURE is coded as MASUOE, how will be FAMINE decoded as

• A.

GAMIRE

• B.

EALIME

• C.

FAMIQE

• D.

GAOIPE

B. EALIME
Explanation
The given question follows a pattern where each alternate letter in the word "NATURE" is shifted one position back in the alphabet. Applying the same pattern to the word "FAMINE", each alternate letter should be shifted one position backward, resulting in "EALIME". Therefore, the correct answer is "EALIME".

### If HUMBLE is coded as IVNAKD then SIMPLE will be decoded as

• A.

RHLOMF

• B.

RHLQMF

• C.

RILQNF

• D.

None

B. RHLQMF
Explanation
The letters in the word "HUMBLE" are shifted one position forward in the alphabet to get the coded word "IVNAKD". Applying the same shift to the letters in the word "SIMPLE" would result in the decoded word "RHLQMF".

### If SHELNXR stands for TEDIOUS, in the same way how would GLAMOUR be coded?

• A.

FODPNUQ

• B.

FOBPNXS

• C.

HMBNPVS

• D.

FODPNUS

C. HMBNPVS
Explanation
To find the code for "GLAMOUR" using the same coding pattern as "SHELNXR" for "TEDIOUS," we need to apply a specific transformation.
First, let's examine the transformation from "SHELNXR" to "TEDIOUS":
S -> T
H -> E
E -> D
L -> I
N -> O
X -> U
R -> S
It appears that each letter in "SHELNXR" is replaced with the letter that comes after it in the English alphabet.
Applying the same transformation to "GLAMOUR":
G -> H
L -> M
A -> B
M -> N
O -> P
U -> V
R -> S
So, the code for "GLAMOUR" would be "HMBNPVS."

### If LCMHN represents MANGO, then how will BOUTS be represented?

• A.

AQTUR

• B.

APTUP

• C.

AQTVQ

• D.

AQUVR

A. AQTUR
Explanation
The pattern in the given question seems to be that each letter in the word LCMHN is replaced with the letter that comes two positions later in the alphabet. Applying the same pattern to the word BOUTS, we get AQTUR.

### If ANNJ is for BOOK, then what code will be for LOOK?

• A.

KONJ

• B.

INNK

• C.

KNMJ

• D.

KNNJ

D. KNNJ
Explanation
The code for each letter in the word ANNJ is obtained by shifting the corresponding letter in the word BOOK one position to the right in the alphabet. Applying the same logic to the word LOOK, the letter L would be shifted to N, O to N, O to J, and K to J. Therefore, the code for LOOK would be KNNJ.

### If RTTHHX encodes for purify, then code for BLANCH will be:

• A.

DKDSHG

• B.

AOCGTY

• C.

DKCMEG

• D.

EMGCKD

C. DKCMEG
Explanation
The given question involves encoding a word using a specific code. The code for "purify" is given as "RTTHHX". To find the code for "BLANCH", we need to find a pattern in the given code. Upon observation, it can be seen that each letter in the code is shifted forward by one position in the alphabet. Applying the same pattern to "BLANCH", we get "DKCMEG" as the code.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### If BAT stands for CDQ then PEN stands for

• A.

QIK

• B.

PHK

• C.

QHK

• D.

QHJ

C. QHK
Explanation
The given question follows a pattern where each letter in the word BAT is replaced by the corresponding letter that is three positions ahead in the alphabet. Applying this pattern to the word PEN, we get the letters QHK. Therefore, the correct answer is QHK.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### NUST  is coded as MWPS, then GIKI can be decoded as

• A.

GLJJ

• B.

HGNJ

• C.

HFOJ

• D.

HKIJ

B. HGNJ
Explanation
The code for each letter in the given word is obtained by shifting it two places to the right in the alphabet. Applying the same logic to "GIKI", we shift each letter two places to the right. Hence, "G" becomes "I", "I" becomes "K", "K" becomes "M", and "I" becomes "K". Therefore, the correct answer is "HGNJ".

• 9.

### If SUGAR is coded as RPKBU , then GURUS  could be coded as

• A.

FPVVV

• B.

FPVVU

• C.

EQVVU

• D.

FPWWU

A. FPVVV
Explanation
In the given code, each letter of the word is shifted by one position backward in the English alphabet. Applying the same logic to the word "GURUS", the letters would be shifted as follows: G becomes F, U becomes P, R becomes Q, U becomes V, and S becomes V. Therefore, the correct code for "GURUS" would be "FPVVV".

### If in a certain language SHIFT is coded as RFFPO, which word would be coded as LKUMB

• A.

MMXCG

• B.

MLVNC

• C.

KJVLA

• D.

MJVLC

A. MMXCG
Explanation
In the given language, each letter of the word is shifted by a certain number of positions to obtain the coded word. By observing the given examples, it can be deduced that the first letter is shifted by 1 position, the second letter by 2 positions, the third letter by 3 positions, and so on. Applying the same pattern, the word "LKUMB" would be coded as "MMXCG" because L is shifted by 1 position to become M, K is shifted by 2 positions to become M, U is shifted by 3 positions to become X, M is shifted by 4 positions to become C, and B is shifted by 5 positions to become G.

### If SPIDER is written as PSDIRE in a certain code, how would COMMON be written in that code

• A.

OCMMON

• B.

OCMOMN

• C.

OCOMMO

• D.

OCMMNO

D. OCMMNO
Explanation
The code appears to be reversing the letters in the word and then rearranging them. In the word "SPIDER," the letters are reversed to spell "REDIPS," and then rearranged to form "PSDIRE." Applying the same pattern to the word "COMMON," the letters are reversed to spell "NOMMOC," and then rearranged to form "OCMMNO."

### GAMBLE is coded as FBLCKF, how is FLOWER coded in that code

• A.

GKPVFQ

• B.

GMPVDS

• C.

EMNXDS

• D.

EKNVDQ

C. EMNXDS
Explanation
The code for each letter in the word "GAMBLE" is obtained by shifting it one position to the left in the alphabet. Applying the same logic to the word "FLOWER", each letter should be shifted one position to the left. Therefore, the correct code for "FLOWER" is "EMNXDS".

Rate this question:

• 13.

### If CALANDER is written as CLANAEDR, how will CIRCULAR written in that code

• A.

ICCRLURA

• B.

CRIUCLRA

• C.

ICRCLUAR

• D.

CRIUCALR

D. CRIUCALR
Explanation
The given code rearranges the letters in the word by taking the first letter, then the second and third letters in reverse order, followed by the fourth and fifth letters in reverse order, and so on. Applying this pattern to the word "CIRCULAR", we get "CRIUCALR".

Rate this question:

• 14.

### If CONDEMN is written as CNODMEN, how will TEACHER be written in the same code as

• A.

TAECEHR

• B.

TCAEHER

• C.

TAECHER

• D.

TAEECHR

A. TAECEHR
Explanation
The given code rearranges the letters in the word by taking the first letter and placing it at the end, while keeping the remaining letters in the same order. Applying this code to the word "TEACHER" would result in "TAECEHR", which matches the first option.

### PAPER is coded as SCTGW, how wiLL COVER be coded

• A.

FQZGW

• B.

FQYGV

• C.

FPYVW

• D.

FPZGW

A. FQZGW
Explanation
The given code follows a pattern where each letter in the word is shifted forward by one position in the alphabet. For example, P is coded as Q, A is coded as B, etc. Applying the same pattern to the word "COVER", each letter will be shifted forward by one position, resulting in the code "FQZGW".
