# Reasoning: Coding/Decoding Questions – Set 40

Directions (1 -5): Read the following information carefully and answer the questions given below it:

The consonants are arranged from 1 to 9 like B = 1, C = 2 and so on. Except M, N and P are not marked in such sequence so that Q = 1, R = 2 and so on. M, N and P are marked as 1, 3 and 4 respectively.

• If in a word, after a vowel a consonant exists mark both of them as ‘#’ and after that any other vowel comes mark it as ‘^’. (For example: RAHUL – 2##^9)
• If in a word, after a vowel a vowel exists mark both of them as ‘\$’ and after that any other vowel comes mark it as ‘^’. (For example: TRAIN – 42\$\$3)
• If in a word, first letter is a vowel and last letter is also a vowel, mark both of them as ‘*’ and after that any other vowel comes mark it as ‘^’. (For example: USAGE – *3^5*)
• If a word starts with M, N or P and after that any vowel comes in the word, mark the vowel as with the number assigned to M, N or P. (For example: MANGO – 11351)
• If in a word, no such condition is satisfied mark the consonants with their assigned number and mark the vowel with ‘^’.
1. Find the code for ‘UMBRELLA’?
*912\$\$9*
*112\$\$9*
*122^99*
*112^99*
None of these
Option D
Solution: ‘UMBRELLA’ follows if in a word, first letter is a vowel and last letter is also a vowel, mark both of them as ‘*’ and after that any other vowel comes mark it as ‘^’. Hence, the code for ‘UMBRELLA’ is ‘*112^99*’.

2. Find the code for ‘Beauty of Life’?
1\$\$^48 ## 9##^
1\$\$^48 ^4 9^4^
1\$\$^48 ^4 9##^
1\$\$^48 ## 9^4^
None of these
Option A
Solution: ‘BEAUTY’ follows if in a word, after a vowel a vowel exists mark both of them as ‘\$’ and after that any other vowel comes mark it as ‘^’. Hence, code for ‘BEAUTY’ is ‘1\$\$^48’ ‘OF’ follows if in a word, after a vowel a consonant exists mark both of them as ‘#’ and after that any other vowel comes mark it as ‘^’. Hence, the code for ‘OF’ is ‘##’ ‘LIFE’ follows if in a word, after a vowel a consonant exists mark both of them as ‘#’ and after that any other vowel comes mark it as ‘^’. Hence, the code for ‘LIFE’ is ‘9##^’ Hence, the code for ‘BEAUTY OF LIFE’ is ‘1\$\$^48 ## 9##^’

3. Find the sum of numbers used in the code of ‘AMPLE FRUIT’?
20
25
24
18
None of these
Option C
Solution: ‘AMPLE’ follows if in a word, first letter is a vowel and last letter is also a vowel, mark both of them as ‘*’ and after that any other vowel comes mark it as ‘^’. Hence, code for ‘AMPLE’ is ‘*149*’ ‘FRUIT’ follows if in a word, after a vowel a vowel exists mark both of them as ‘\$’ and after that any other vowel comes mark it as ‘^’. Hence, code for ‘FRUIT’ is ‘42\$\$4’ Hence, the code for ‘AMPLE FRUIT’ is ‘*149* 42\$\$4’ Sum of the numbers 1 + 4 + 9 + 4 + 2 + 4 = 24

4. What is the code for ‘SOLUTION’?
3###4^^3
3##^4^^3
3##^4**3
3##^4^#3
None of these
Option B
Solution: ‘SOLUTION’ follows if in a word, after a vowel a consonant exists mark both of them as ‘#’ and after that any other vowel comes mark it as ‘^’. Hence, code for ‘SOLUTION’ is ‘3##^4^^3’

5. What is the code for ‘SEARCH FROM PAGE’?
3\$\$226 42## 4##^
3\$\$226 42^1 4##^
3\$\$226 42^1 4454
3\$\$226 42## 4454
None of these
Option D
Solution: ‘SEARCH’ follows if in a word, after a vowel a vowel exists mark both of them as ‘\$’ and after that any other vowel comes mark it as ‘^’. Hence, code for ‘SEARCH’ is 3\$\$226 ‘FROM’ follows if in a word, after a vowel a consonant exists mark both of them as ‘#’ and after that any other vowel comes mark it as ‘^’. Hence, code for ‘FROM’ is ‘42##’ ‘PAGE’ follows if a word starts with M, N or P and after that any vowel comes in the word, mark the vowel as with the number assigned to M, N or P. Hence, code for ‘PAGE’ is ‘4454 Hence, code for ‘SEARCH FROM PAGE’ is ‘3\$\$226 42## 4454’

6. Direction (6 – 10): Read the following information carefully and answer the questions that follow:

In a certain code language,
“Fasting relax digestive system” is coded as “G49 E81 X25 M36”.
“Boosts brain function efficiency” is coded as “Y100 N64 S36 N25”.
“Increases energy daily body” is coded as “Y36 Y16 S81 Y25”.
“Fasting cures life threatening” is coded as “E16 G49 S25 G121”.

7. Which of the following may represent “get well suffer”?
L9 T16 R25
T9 R36 L16
G9 S36 W16
T16 L25 R9
T25 R9 W16
Option B

Logic:
1) The first element is the letter which represents the last letter of word.
2) A second element is a number which represents the square of number of letter in that word.

Hence, the code for “get well suffer” will be “T9 R36 L16”.

8. The code for “S36 G49 E64 X25” represents?
Life energy digestive brain
Increase boosts fasting relax
Threatening body efficiency relax
Cures life energy function system
Relax energy digestive body
Option B
Hence, the code for “S36 G49 E64 X25” represents “Increase boosts fasting relax”.

9. What will be the code for the word “percentage” in this coded language?
E81
G100
E64
P100
E100
Option E
Hence, the code for “percentage” will be E100.

10. The code “Y100” represents which of the following in that coded language?
Blizzardly
Absolutely
Absorption
Absorbency
Cannot be determined
Option E
Hence, the code “E100” cannot be determined for a particular word.

11. What will be the code for the word “function” in this coded language?
S36
Y100
N64
