Solutions (1 to 5)
1) Answer (b)
From conditions I & IV, there is only one common word, i.e., ‘follow’
=> code for follow – jp
2) Answer (c)
From conditions II & III, there is only one common word, ‘music’ – sc
From III & IV, there are two common words ‘music’ & ‘on’ coded as either ‘sc’ or ‘fi’
Since, code for music is known, => ‘on’ – fi
From I & III, code for ‘always’ – ag
Now, from condition III, since codes for ‘music’,’on’,’always’ are known,
=> mind – lw
3) Answer (a)
From conditions I & II, the only common word ‘passion is coded as ‘mo’
From II & III, there is only one common word ‘music’ – sc
Now, from condition II, there are still two words left, ‘great’ & ‘for’ either coded as ‘bu’ or ‘nd’
=> ‘nd’ is the code for either ‘great’ or ‘for’.
4) Answer (d)
From conditions, I & II, the only common word ‘passion’ – mo
From II & III, the only common word ‘music’ – sc
=> From III, code for ‘on’ – fi
From I & III, the only common word ‘always’ – ag
Now, comparing the above codes with the codes given in question, we can conclude that the code for ‘help’ – hr
From I & IV, code for ‘follow’ – jp
Now, from I, code for ‘your’ – ke
and from IV, code for ‘twitter’ – ty
=> help your twitter – ty ke hr
5) Answer (e)
From I & II, there is only one common word, i.e., ‘passion’ coded as ‘mo’
The word divine is not used in above statements.
Thus, we need to find an answer that contains a code which is not used yet and ‘mo’
