Question 165

# What is the code for ‘weekend’ in the given code language ?

Solution

The common word in the first two statements is 'dress' coded as = 'pd'

Similarly, the common word in first and third statements is 'meeting' coded as = 'dk'

Also, the common word in first and last statements is 'code' coded as = 'jn'

=> The only word left in 1st statement is 'for' coded as = 'td'

Now, the common word in second and third statements is 'formal' coded as = 'te'

From 2nd and 4th statement, code for 'black' is = 'ro'

=> The only word left in 2nd statement is 'wear' coded as = 'hi'

Now, from the last two statements, two words are common, i.e. 'this' and 'weekend' coded as = either 'yi' or 'yr'

Thus, the code for ‘weekend’ = either 'yi' or 'yr'

=> Ans - (A)
