Question 5

# In a certain code language , SHORT is written as ITOUS and DWARF as XEAGS. Then in the same code language, how will MANGO be written ?

Solution

The word SHORT is divided into three pars : SH , O , RT

I : SH - IT

The diagonally opposite element is substituted by its immediate folowing alphabet in the English alphabetical series.

=> S is substituted by T at its diagonally opposite position. Similarly, H is substituted by I at its diagonally opposite position.

II : O - O

The middle letter is used as it is.

III : RT - US

The diagonally opposite element is substituted by its immediate following alphabet in the English alphabetical series.

=> R is substituted by S at its diagonally opposite position. Similarly, T is substituted by U at its diagonally opposite position.

Similar pattern can be observed for DWARF - XEAGS

Thus, code for MANGO :

MA - BN

N - N

GO - PH

$$\therefore$$ MANGO = BNNPH
