Solutions: (1 to 5)

From the conditions I & II, there is only one common word, i.e., ‘red’
=> red – ew

From conditions I & II, there is only one common word ‘red’ – ew
From II & IV, there are two common words ‘gate’ & ‘red’ either coded as ‘op’ or ‘ew’
Since, code for red is known, then code for ‘gate’ – op
The word crash is not used in the above conditions, thus we need to find a solution with a code that is not used above and op Ans – (A)

From the conditions I & III, there are two common words ‘house’ & ‘your’ either coded as ‘ri’ or ‘cu’
Thus, ‘cu’ can be the code of either ‘house’ or ‘your’.

From conditions I & II, the only common word is ‘red’ – ew
From I & IV, there are two common words ‘red’ & ‘paint’ either coded as ‘fm’ or ‘ew’.
Since, the code for red is known, => code for ‘paint’ – fm
