    Option C
    Explanation:

    The code consists of 4 terms
    (i) First term : It is the second alphabet of any word. Example drone – r is the second alphabet.
    (ii) Second term : represents the number of vowel in a word. Example in drone there are two vowels. Hence Number is 2
    (iii) Third term : it is the alphabet corresponding to the second last alphabet of a word in reverse order. Example in drone- second last alphabet is N. In reverse order N=M
    (iv) Fourth Term : Symbols represent the last alphabet of each word. Notice that in each line all the words ends in e,l,h or t. L=$, E=#, T=+, H=/

Directions (6-10): Study the following information to answer the given questions:
In a certain code,
‘Rust Fish Joint Farm’ is written as             ‘9©S     5$S      3%L      [email protected] ’,
‘Nurse Pirate Label Hint’ is written as       ‘6%K     [email protected]      [email protected]     7©D’,

  1. Which is the code for ‘Honey Bunny’?
    A) 3$S 2%X
    B) 4$X 1©X
    C) [email protected] 2©D
    D) 4#E 4%B
    E) Cannot be determined
    View Answer
    Option B

    (i) Numbers – First letter of word divided by 2. For Honey – First letter H = 8, so 8/2 = 4
    (ii) For symbols: second letter of word is used
    a – %, e- #, I – @, o – $, u – ©
    So for Honey, second letter o changes to $
    (iii) For alphabet, last letter of word changes to its previous letter in alphabet
    So for Honey, last letter y to (y – 1) = X
    so Honey is 4$X
    Bunny:
    B = 2, so 2/2 = 1
    for second letter u – ©
    For last letter y => X
    So Bunny is 1©X
