Topic – Practice Set

Directions (1-5): Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions:
A fixed number of boxes are placed on top of each other. Each box contains different pens. Four boxes are placed between A and E. No more than three boxes are placed above A. Three boxes are placed in a box containing E and 24 pens, the box containing 24 pens being placed above the E box. Box S is placed at the topmost position. The number of boxes placed under box A and a box containing 40 pens is half of the number of boxes placed under box E. Four boxes are placed in a box containing 24 pens and a box containing 16 pens. The number of boxes placed in box E and T is one less than the number of boxes placed in T and box which contains 54 pens. Box Q is third from the lowest position.

Solution: Solutions (6-8):
Sol. The coding language used to encode the given words should be decoded in two steps,
Step I: The alphabet is the third letter after the second letter (from the left) of the word.
Second step: The number of consonants in the word is one more.
For example: Control is coded as ‘R6’
Alphabet: O + 3 = R
Number: Number of consonants + 1 = 5 + 1 = 6
So, the code for ‘CUBE’ is X3.
The code for ‘METER’ is ‘H4’
The code for ‘FORD’ is ‘R4’
The code for ‘Brain’ is ‘U4’.
The code for ‘WASH’ is ‘D4’ and so on…
