Question 173

# Which of the following additional statements is required to definitely find the code of `and' in the given code language ?

Solution

The common words in first two statements are 'work' and 'and' coded as = 'oj' or 'bx'

The common word in first and last statements is 'related' coded as = 'my'

=> Only word left in first statement is 'economy' coded as = 'st'

The common word in second and third statements is 'employment' coded as = 'pk'

=> Only word left in second statement is 'today' coded as = 'dy'

The common common word in last two statements is 'growth' coded as = 'el'

=> Only words left in third statement are 'for' and 'only' coded as = 'fd' or 'zn'

=> Only word left in last statement is 'is' coded as = 'gm'

Thus, to definitely find the code of 'and', we need a statement that contains only one of 'work' or 'and'

=> Ans - (B)
