    Explanation:

    Observe that all words are odd numbered words. The number represents the middle letter of each word.

    The next letter of each middle letter in word is a vowel.
    Symbol is used for vowels
    a – @, e – #, i – %, o – &, u -!

    Option B

    There are only 2 symbols used in the coding. So you should start by identifying what these mean.
    In first and fourth codes we have two @ and two # so here we cant know.
    Next if we see 2nd and 3rd codes. There are 3 @ symbols and 3 # symbols resp. Now see the words given. And if they have any similarity.
    In second code there are 3 words which end in a consonant and in 3rd code there are three words which end in a vowel.
    Check the same in 1st and 4th codes.
    So if word end in vowel then #. If in consonant then @.
    Next see there are two words in 1st code which start with s and 2 codes which start with h.
    Similarly in 2nd code. So this can be used to find out about the letter in codes. Analyze and see that reverse letter is written – A -> Z. B -> Y i.e. in reverse order A to Z -> Z to A.
    For numbers:
    If consonant at last like shunt then n × (n+2) so 5 × 7 = 35
    If vowel at last like three then n × (n-2) so 5 × 3 = 15
  2. What is the code for ‘approximate ’?
    A) z#99
    B) [email protected]
    C) z#132
    D) c#99
    E) Cannot be determined
    View Answer
    Option A

    z for first letter ‘a’ of approximate
    # for approximate end in vowel ‘e’
    11 letters in approximate and words end in vowel so n × (n-2) so 11 × 9 = 99
