Explanation
The code appears to be assigning each letter a corresponding number. By comparing the given words and their corresponding numbers, we can deduce that each letter's position in the word corresponds to a digit in the code. Therefore, the code for "IMAGE" would be 17542, as the first letter "I" corresponds to 1, the second letter "M" corresponds to 7, and so on.

The letter series follows a pattern where the letters H, G, F, E, D, C, B, and A are repeated in a reverse order, and then the letter H is skipped. The pattern continues with the letters F, E, D, C, B, and A being repeated in a reverse order, and then the letter H is skipped again. Following this pattern, the next letter in the series should be E.
