### In a certain code, LUTE is written as MUTE and GATE is written as HATE, then how will be BLUE be written in that code?

• A.

CLUE

• B.

GLUE

• C.

FLUD

• D.

FLUE

• E.

None of these

A. CLUE
Explanation
The given code follows a simple pattern of shifting each letter by one position forward in the alphabet. Therefore, the letter 'B' in BLUE will be shifted to 'C', 'L' will be shifted to 'M', 'U' will be shifted to 'V', and 'E' will be shifted to 'F'. Hence, BLUE will be written as CLUE in that code.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### In a certain code, APPLE is written as BPPLD and CEAT is written as DEAS, then how will be HEART written in that code?

• A.

GEARS

• B.

IEARS

• C.

HEAST

• D.

TREEH

• E.

None of these

B. IEARS
Explanation
The code follows a pattern where each letter in the original word is replaced by the next letter in the alphabet. For example, 'A' becomes 'B', 'P' becomes 'Q', 'L' becomes 'M', and so on. Applying the same pattern to 'HEART', the letters will be replaced as follows: 'H' becomes 'I', 'E' becomes 'F', 'A' becomes 'B', 'R' becomes 'S', and 'T' becomes 'U'. Therefore, the word 'HEART' will be written as 'IEARS' in that code.

• B.

IUSQBVFI

• C.

USQAVFI

• D.

JIUSJBFJ

• E.

None of these

B. IUSQBVFI
Explanation
The code language follows a pattern where each letter in the word is replaced by the letter that is three places ahead of it in the English alphabet. Applying this pattern to the word SHORTAGE, each letter is replaced by the letter that is three places ahead of it: S becomes V, H becomes K, O becomes R, R becomes U, T becomes W, A becomes D, G becomes J, and E becomes H. Therefore, the word SHORTAGE is written as IUSQBVFI in that code language.

• B.

TSNSOFQF

• C.

TMSSOFFQ

• D.

TMSSFFOQ

• E.

None of these

A. TSSNOFFQ

The given code follows a pattern where each letter is replaced by the letter that is three positions ahead in the English alphabet. Applying this pattern to the word "VOTES", we get "LBNKF".

Rate this question:

• 11.

### In a certain code language FIRE is written as #%@\$ and DEAL is written as ©\$U. How will FAIL be written in that code language?

• A.

%*U#

• B.

#U%*

• C.

#U%#

• D.

U#*%

• E.

None of these

B. #U%*
Explanation
In the given code language, each letter in the word is replaced with a symbol or a combination of symbols. By comparing the given words and their corresponding codes, we can determine the pattern. In this case, the first letter is replaced with a symbol, the second letter is replaced with another symbol, and so on. Applying this pattern to the word "FAIL", we get "#U%*".

Rate this question:

• 12.

### In a certain code language FUEL is written as \$%#6 and KITE is written as @•7#. How will LIFE be written in that code language?

• A.

6•\$#

• B.

6%#\$

• C.

6\$•#

• D.

#6\$•

• E.

None of these

A. 6•\$#
Explanation
The given code language follows a pattern where each letter is replaced by a symbol and a number. The symbol corresponds to the position of the letter in the English alphabet and the number corresponds to the number of letters in the word. In FUEL, F is the 6th letter and there are 4 letters in the word, so it is represented as \$%#6. Similarly, in KITE, K is the 11th letter and there are 4 letters in the word, so it is represented as @•7#. Applying the same pattern to LIFE, L is the 12th letter and there are 4 letters in the word, so it will be represented as 6•\$#.

Rate this question:

• 13.

### In a certain code language MODERN is written as 5%38#@ and WIN is written as 6©@. How will “RIDER” be written inthat code language?

• A.

• B.

• C.

• D.

• E.

None of these

Explanation
In the given code language, each letter is replaced by a symbol and a number. The symbol and number correspond to the position of the letter in the English alphabet. For example, M is replaced by 5% because it is the 5th letter in the alphabet, O is replaced by 3 because it is the 15th letter, and D is replaced by 8#@ because it is the 4th letter. Applying the same logic, R is the 18th letter and will be replaced by #, I is the 9th letter and will be replaced by ©, E is the 5th letter and will be replaced by 3, and D is the 4th letter and will be replaced by 8#. Therefore, "RIDER" will be written as #©38#.

Rate this question:

### In a certain code language TIMES is written as 79548. How will INDIA be written in that code language?

• A.

18132

• B.

45989

• C.

94598

• D.

49589

• E.

None of these

C. 94598
Explanation
The code language seems to be assigning a unique number to each letter in the word. By following this pattern, we can assign the numbers to the letters in INDIA: I=9, N=4, D=5, I=9, A=8. Therefore, INDIA will be written as 94598 in that code language.

Rate this question:

• 15.

### In a certain code language, SAFER is written as 5@3#2 and RIDE is written as 2©%#, how would FEDS be written in that code?

• A.

• B.

3@%5

• C.

3#%5

• D.

3#%2

• E.

None of these

C. 3#%5
Explanation
The code pattern in this question involves replacing each letter with a symbol or number. The first letter of the word is replaced with a number, the second letter is replaced with a special character, and the third letter is replaced with another number. Applying this pattern to the word FEDS, we get 3#%5.

Rate this question:

• 16.

### If in a certain code language, EAT is written as 318 and CHAIR is written as 24156, then how TEACHER be written in that code language?

• A.

8313426

• B.

8312436

• C.

8321436

• D.

8312346

• E.

None of these

B. 8312436
Explanation
In the given code language, each letter is assigned a unique number. The number assigned to a letter is determined by its position in the word. For example, in the word "EAT", E is in the first position, A is in the second position, and T is in the third position. Therefore, E is assigned the number 3, A is assigned the number 1, and T is assigned the number 8. Applying the same logic to the word "TEACHER", T is in the first position, E is in the second position, A is in the third position, and so on. Thus, TEACHER would be written as 8312436.

Rate this question:

• 17.

### In a certain code RAID is written as %#*\$, RIPE is written as %*@©. How is DEAR written up in that code?

• A.

• B.

\$@#%

• C.

@\$#%

• D.

• E.

None of these

Explanation
The code follows a pattern where each letter is replaced by a symbol. The first letter is replaced by a symbol from the set {%, @, \$}, the second letter is replaced by a symbol from the set {*, ©, #}, the third letter is replaced by a symbol from the set {*, @, \$}, and the fourth letter is replaced by a symbol from the set {*, ©, #}. Applying this pattern to the word DEAR, we can see that D corresponds to \$, E corresponds to ©, A corresponds to #, and R corresponds to %. Therefore, DEAR is written as \$©#% in that code.

Rate this question:

• 18.

### In a certain code, DOWN is written as 5@9# and NAME is written as #6%3. How would MODE be written in that code?

• A.

%653

• B.

%@63

• C.

%5@3

• D.

%@53

• E.

None of these

D. %@53
Explanation
In the given code, each letter is replaced by a symbol and a number. The symbol and number used for each letter is determined by its position in the alphabet. The first letter is replaced by the symbol '@' and the number '5', the second letter is replaced by the symbol '#' and the number '9', and so on. Applying this pattern to the word MODE, the first letter 'M' would be replaced by the symbol '%' and the number '6', the second letter 'O' would be replaced by the symbol '@' and the number '5', the third letter 'D' would be replaced by the symbol '3' and the number '3', and the fourth letter 'E' would be replaced by the symbol '%' and the number '6'. Therefore, the correct code for MODE is %@53.

Rate this question:

• 19.

### If GO=32, SHE=49, then SOME will be equal to

• A.

56

• B.

58

• C.

62

• D.

64

• E.

None of these

A. 56
Explanation
The given question seems to involve assigning numerical values to letters. If we look at the given examples, GO is equal to 32 and SHE is equal to 49. By comparing the values assigned to each letter, we can see that the value of the first letter in each word is multiplied by the value of the second letter. Applying this pattern to the word SOME, we can calculate the value by multiplying the values of S and O (19 * 15), which equals 285. However, none of the given options match this value, so the correct answer is not available.

Rate this question:

• 20.

### If AT=20, BAT=40, then  CAT will be equal to

• A.

30

• B.

50

• C.

60

• D.

70

• E.

None of these

C. 60
Explanation
The pattern in this question seems to be that each letter corresponds to a number, where A=10, B=20, C=30, and so on. Therefore, since CAT starts with the letter C, it would correspond to the number 30.
