  1. What is the code for ‘leash’?
    A) e3s/
    B) e2a/
    C) e2h/
    D) 23a/
    E) Cannot be determined
    View Answer
    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$S      3%L      3@G ’,
‘Nurse Pirate Label Hint’ is written as       ‘6%K     4@S      8@D     7©D’,
‘Recall Dump Light House’ is written as    ‘4$D    2©O      6@S     9#K’, and
‘Loyal Best Pale Letter’ is written as          ‘1#S      6#Q      6$K      8%D’.

  1. Which is the code for ‘Honey Bunny’?
    A) 3$S 2%X
    B) 4$X 1©X
    C) 1@X 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
  2. What is the code for ‘Number’?
    A) 7©Q
    B) 8#S
    C) 7@G
    D) 4%P

14 Thoughts to “Reasoning: Coding/Decoding Set 10 (New Pattern)”

  1. Ati

    how to get logic ? khud se logic kaise bnaye?sabse pehle kya consider krna chahiye?

    1. relate the symbols, numbers

      and find which ever u get first

      like in 1st question above
      u see that there are only 4 symbols used, and each one is present in each 4 sentences
      now see – ki words me esa kya hai jo relate ho – U Notice that in each line all the words ends in e,l,h or t
      means the symbols are for last letter
      but we dont know that for which letter which symbol is used.

      Now see that
      in first 3 codes, we have
      r1h/
      o1h/
      e1h/

      h in third term in all – so try to relate words, that if there is anything common
      so u see that – crush, josh and mesh have second last letter as s
      and reverse of s is h

      like this u can go further

      these questions are just for practice.
      In exam, a little easy coding will be given. But u should practice the hard ones alsoso as to know all the logics that can be applied

      1. Ati

        thanku so much mam ,,, it makes some sense to me 🙂

      2. Hemant ahuja?

        Samjh nhi aata kha se start kare

        1. vo khud se dekhna pdega that which symbol, alphabet or number can be predicted easily

          Try to found something that can relate

      3. SRIVASTAVA
