Divide the word into two groups of five letters each. The first five letters are in group I and the last five letters are in group II. Now, for its coding the middle letters remain unchanged. While the letters in each group change their position as 1 → 3, 2 5, 3 4, 4 2 and 5 1. The first letter is coded as two letters: the first remains unchanged and the second two letters forward as in English alphabet. The second, fourth, fifth and sixth letters are coded as two letters forward while the third letter is coded as three letters forward as in English alphabet. The last letter remains unchanged. Divide the word into two halves. Now, reverse the order of the letters of the first half and replace odd positioned letters with one letter forward and even-positioned letter with one letter backward as in English alphabet. For the second half letters, the odd-positioned letters are coded as one letter forward and even-positioned letters are coded as one letter backward as in English alphabet. The odd-positioned letters are coded as one position backward and the even-positioned letters are coded as one position forward as in English alphabet.

You get STREA and MLING. Now, reverse N U O D L N O N Q Q R N D I D S Q JXRboth the groups. You get AERTS and GNILM. Now write each letter of first group two places forward. You get CGTVU. B Write each letter of second group one place forward. You get HOJMN. Now join both the groups without changing the order of letters. You get CGTVUHOJMN. Similarly PERIODICAL is coded as PERIODICAL → OIREPLACID QKTGRMBDJE 8. 1; O V E R O P E N +1 +1 +1 +1 -1 Similarly, +1 +1 +1 +1 -1 P W F S Q P Q F O M 9. 2; Split the word OMNIPRESENT in three parts OMNIP, R, and ESENT. Reverse the order of the letters of the first part. It becomes PINMO. Now write each letter of this part one place forward, ie PINMO becomes QJONP. Write the letter of the second part two places forward, ie R becomes T. Again, reverse the order of the letters of the third part, ie ESENT becomes TNESE. Now write each letter one place backward, ie TNESE becomes SMDRD. Hence OMNIPRESENT is coded as QJONPTSMDRD. Similarly, CREDIBILITY will be written as JEFSDDXSHKH. 10. 3; Similarly ,

Five letters of the word PATHOLOGIST are reversed first and then coded as one place forward. Similarly, the last five letters of the word are reversed then coded as one place backward. Middle letter is coded as one place backward. Hence, CONTROVERSY will be written as SUOPDNXRQDU. 13. 1; Here, each letter of the word CLOUD is written as three letters forward and one letter backward alternately. Following this CLOUD becomes FKRTG. After that, reverse the order of the result obtained in the previous operation. Thus, FKRTG becomes GTRKF. Similarly, SIGHT will change its form as follows: SIGHT → VHJGW → WGJHV 14. 1;

Similarly, ie DISTRIBUTION will be coded as STTIBUDIONRI. 15. 3; Here the given word is BROUGHT. Reversing the order of the letters, it becomes THGUORB. Now write each letter one place backward except the middle letter (write middle letter one place forward). It becomes SGFVNQA. Now reverse the order of the last three letters and it becomes SGFVAQN. Similarly, SUPREME → EMERPUS DLDSOTR DLDSRTO 16. 3; A R O M A T I C +1 -1 +1 -1 +1 -1 +1 -1 B Q P L B S J B Similarly, B R A I N +1 -1 +1 -1 +1 C Q B H O 17. 2;

Now they are coded as two letters forward as in English alphabet. 20. 2; The first letter becomes the third, second letter is coded as -2, and third becomes first after +1. A similar relationship exists between the last three letters. As for the middle letter, it is coded as the same-positioned letter from the right end of the alphabet. 21. 1; It is clear that F → +, A ÷, D \$ and E ×

(v) From (i) and (v), codes for S and I are c and z but not necessarily in the same order. Now, with the help of (iii), codes for N, O, E = l, f, d. But from (i) and (v), codes for F, E = u, d. Therefore code for E is ‘d’ and code for F is ‘u’. Since, code for N, O, E = l, f, d, this implies code for C, A = m, n (from iv). From (i) and (iv), code for A is n. Therefore, code for C is m. 48. 49. 50. 51. 52. (53-57):

Logic of coding is very simple. Observe the word and the codes. It gives us following information: If the word consists of four letters only, (i) and the vowels occupy places at extreme ends only then those vowels are replaced by [12] while the consonants are replaced by [24]. (ii) and consonants occupy places at extreme ends only then those consonants are replaced by [24] while the vowels are replaced by [6]. (iii) and the vowels occupy the second and the fourth places only then those vowels are replaced by [42], while the consonants are replaced by [24]. (iv) and the vowels occupy the first and the third places only then those vowels are replaced by [18] while the consonants are replaced by [24]. If the word consists of three letters only, (i) and the vowels occupy places at extreme ends only then those vowels are replaced by [30] while the consonant is replaced by [24]. (ii) and the consonants occupy places at extreme ends only then those consonants are replaced by [24] while the vowel is replaced by [36].
