In a certain code,
â€²Search box to findâ€² is written as Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  â€²K21 Â  Â  Â  S22 Â  Â  Â  P15 Â  Â  Â  Â  T16â€²
â€²Find is first formâ€² is written as Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â â€²L31 Â  Â  Â  N20 Â  Â  Â  R19 Â  Â  Â  Â  T16â€²
â€²Table is looking goodâ€² is written as Â  Â  Â  Â  Â â€²R19 Â  Â  Â O19 Â  Â  Â  Â F34 Â  Â  Â  Â  E15â€²
â€²Search text not commandâ€² is written as Â â€²S17 Â  Â  Â  E25 Â  Â  Â  Â K21 Â  Â  Â  Â U35â€²

1. What text be the code for â€˜find girlâ€™?
A) T16 K21
B) T16 U35
C) A19 T16
D) O19 T16
E) None of these
Â  Option CÂ
Find â€“ T16
Girl is not present anywhere in codes and so is A19
2. Which of the following can be used to find out the code for â€˜boxâ€™?
(i) S22 K21 P15 U38
(ii) N20 S22 K67 U35
(iii) V20 K21 K67 P15
(iv) N20 P20 L31 U35
A) (ii)
B) (ii) or (iv)
C) (ii) or (iii)
D) (i) or (ii)
E) None of these
Â  Option C
Explanation:Â
From 1st code, search â€“ K21 and find â€“ T16
So â€˜boxâ€™ is either S22 or P15 so if given that what codes (ii) and (iii) stand for, the code for â€˜boxâ€™ can be found. [because they contain either S22 or P15
in (i) both are given, so cannot be found. In (iv) â€“ neither is given so cant be found
So either (ii) or (iii) can be used Â Â Â
3. Which of the following cannot be used to find the code for â€˜commandâ€™?
A) N20 S22 K67 U35
B) S17 K21 E25 P15
C) S22 E25 P15 U38
D) N20 P20 L31 S17
E) None of these
Â  Option BÂ
Command can be S17 or E25 or U35. But B) contains both S17 and E25 Â
4. If â€˜firstâ€™ is coded as â€˜L31â€™, then what text be the code for â€˜not formâ€™
A) N20 K21
B) U35 N20
C) O19 N20
D) N20 S22
E) F34 N20
Â  Option B
In â€²Find is first formâ€² is written as Â â€²L31 N20 R19 T16â€².
Find â€“ T16, is â€“ R19. Now if first â€“ L31, then form â€“ N20.
Now in â€²Search text not commandâ€² is written asÂ  â€²S17 E25 K21 U35â€²
Search â€“ K21, so A cannot be the answer.
not can be S17 or E25 or U35, none of which is present in B, C or D. In B U35 is there. So B) text be the code.
5. If the code for â€˜lookingâ€™ is â€˜F34â€™, then which of the following can be used to find the code for â€˜goodâ€™?
A) O19 E15 K21 P15
B) S17 O19 R19 E15
C) O19 P15 F34 E15
D) L31 U35 E15 P15
E) None of these
Â  Option D
â€˜isâ€™ â€“ R19. So if â€˜lookingâ€™ is R34, then â€˜goodâ€™ can be coded as O19 or E15.
Only in D option, one of them is written. In other options both O19 and E15 are written so will not be useful to find the code for â€˜goodâ€™.

Directions (6-10): Study the following information to answer the given questions:

In a certain code,
â€˜crucial major radical sourâ€™ is written as Â  Â  Â â€˜%a4 Â  Â  @a4 Â  Â  Â !u2 Â  Â  Â  Â &o3â€™,
â€˜right calm safety mutualâ€™ is written as Â  Â  Â  Â â€˜!t3 Â  Â  Â  @h3 Â  Â  Â &a3 Â  Â  Â  %l2â€™,
â€˜close micro school regimeâ€™ is written as Â  Â  â€˜@m3 Â  Â &r3 Â  Â  Â  !o3 Â  Â  Â  %s3â€™, and
â€˜mystery reside sour crucialâ€™ is written as Â  Â â€˜%a4 Â  Â  &r4 Â  Â  Â  Â !u2 Â  Â  Â  @d3â€™.

1. What is the code for â€˜mutualâ€™?
A) !n3
B) @c2
C) &a3
D) &n2
E) Cannot be determined
Option C

& for first letter m, % for first letter c, @ for first letter r, and ! for first letter s
Number represents number of alphabets in word divided by 2. And is it comes in decimal, the number is rounded off. Example crucial= 7 = 7/2 = 4. sour = 4 = 4/2 = 2
Alphabet represents the second last letter of word.
So crucial = % for c, a for second last a in crucial and 4 for crucial= 7 = 7/2 = 4
2. What does â€˜!o3 @h3â€™ stand for?
A) calm regime
B) right school
C) school calm
D) close mutual
E) Cannot be determined
Option B

3. â€™!a2 @n3 &n4â€™ could be a code for which of the following?
A) morbid raising shake
B) morning star rising
C) carry style sour
D) spacing rising radical
E) Cannot be determined
Option B

remedy – @d3
4. What is code for â€˜close safetyâ€™?
A) %r2 &r4
B) %l3 @c2
C) !n3 %r2
D) !t3 %s3
E) Cannot be determined
Option D

5. Which of the following will represent â€˜carry spacing righteousâ€™?
A) @m2 !a5 &t3
B) %r3 !a4 @t3
C) %m3 &s5 &r2
D) %r3 !n4 @u5
E) Cannot be determined
Option D

multi – &t3
satirical – !a5
ramp – @m2

## 15 Thoughts to “Reasoning: Coding/Decoding Questions Set 19”

1. yo

Which of the following cannot be used to find the code for â€˜commandâ€™?
A) N20 S22 K67 U35
B) S17 K21 E25 P15
C) S22 E25 P15 U38
D) N20 P20 L31 S17
E) None of these

kindly explain this
how to deduce value of it?

1. see

â€²Search text not commandâ€² is written as â€²S17 E25 K21 U35â€²

From first code Search – K21
So now
Command can be S17 or E25 or U35.
Now if we are give – words for codes in A) N20 S22 K67 U35
which contain one of S17 or E25 or U35. ie U35
So if A) part contains word command, we can say command – U35 and of A) part does not contain word command, we can say command is not U35
Same in C and D options

But in B), 2 of S17 or E25 or U35 are present. so we will not be able to know the code for command

got it thanks mam

2. Hope 2017

u mean hit with option mam?
