Solutions for Coding Decoding questions:
1) Answer (E)
Money is repeated in two sentences where la is common. So option e : la is the correct answer.
2) Answer (E)
economics is repeated in two sentences where ka is common.
So economics is ka.
demand and supply are repeated in two sentences where mo and ta are common, and can be
either of them( if demand is mo then supply is ta and vice versa).
Hence option e : Either mo or ta is the correct answer.
3) Answer (A)
demand is either mo or ta
makes is repeated in two sentences where zi is common
money is la
Therefore only can be either ne or ki
So the option must have wither mo or ta , ne or ki and a new word for only.
Verifying the options with the above condition we find that option a : xi ne mo is the right answer.
4) Answer (B)
From the given information, we can establish that economics = ‘ka’, ‘money =’la’, and = ‘pa’ and makes = ‘zi’.
‘Work and money’ contain the words ‘and’ and ‘money’ => answer must have ‘pa’ and ‘la’ in it => Both option 1 and 2 contain them.
But in option 1, ‘ga’, which refers to either ‘is’ or ‘not’, is present. But in the given sentence, neither of them are present. Hence option 1 is wrong.
=> option 2 is correct
5) Answer (D)
‘money makes only part’ and ‘Demand makes supply economics’ have only ‘makes’ in common. Hence ‘zi’, which is the only common word common, is the answer.
6) Answer (D)
The code involves writing A as Z, B as Y, C as X, D as W, etc.
7) Answer (A)
From first and second condition , the common word is more coded as ‘7’
From first and third condition, the common word is me coded as ‘3’
Thus, in the first statement, only word left is give coded as ‘5’
8) Answer (B)
Here MDVJH is obtained from GIVEN first by writing it backwards and then writing preceeding letter in alphabetical series for first two, sucessive letter for last two letters and leaving middle letter unchanged.
Hence, SHARK would read as JQAIT which is option B.
9) Answer (C)
In the above statements ‘many’ and ‘9’ are in two sentences. So ‘many’ is ‘9’.
Similarly ‘scored’ and ‘3’ are in two sentences. So ‘scored’ is ‘3’.
In the first sentence ‘how’ , ‘goals’ , ‘5’ and ‘7’ are left. So ‘how’ and ‘goals’ can be either ‘5’ or ‘7’ ( if
‘how’ is ‘5’ then ‘goals’ is ‘7’ and vice versa).
10) Answer (A)
Split TEMPORAL into two halves TEMP and ORAL
Reversing the order of letters we get PMET and LARO
Subtracting 1 from PMET we get P – 1 = O , M – 1 = L , E – 1 = D , T – 1 = S
Adding 1 to LARO we get L + 1 = M , A + 1 = B , R + 1 = S , O + 1 = P
Applying the same concept to CONSIDER
CONS ⇒ SNOC IDER ⇒ REDI
S – 1 = R , N – 1 = M , O – 1 = N , C – 1 = B
I + 1 = J , D + 1 = E , E + 1 = F , R + 1 = S
