‘it yours tablet’ is written as ‘yu du ca’

Question 88

# What is the code for ‘my’ ?

Solution

There are 3 common words in the first two statements which are 'for', 'my' and 'conductor'.

The remaining words, i.e. in first statement 'bank' is coded as = 'ya'

and in 2nd statement, 'is' is coded as = 'da'

The common words in second and third statements except for 'is' is 'my' which is coded as = 'vi'

=> Code for 'for' and 'conductor' is = either 'ri' or 'pa'

The common word in the last two statements is 'yours' coded as = 'du'

=> In 3rd statement, only word left, 'computer' is coded as = 'pi'

Also, in 4th statement, codes for 'it' and 'tablet' is coded as = either 'yu' or 'ca'

Thus, the code for ‘my’ = vi

=> Ans - (D)
