# Coding and Decoding For SBI PO : Set – 50

Directions (1-5): Study the following information to answer the given questions:

In a certain code,
‘Seven Eleven Two Four’ is written as   ‘A#24    D@35  H\$8    L#15’,
‘Six Thirteen Ten Forty’ is written as    ‘H@63   L\$24   A\$8    H\$8’,
‘Eight Twelve Sixteen Three’ is written as ‘A@48   H#24  D\$24   H#35’, and
‘Nine Fourteen Thirty Fifteen’ is written as  ‘L@48 J#15   H\$35   L!63’.

1) Which is the code for ‘Sixty Five’?
A) A@24      L#15
B) L\$24      L!15
C) A\$24      L#15
D) A\$24      L#16
E) Cannot be Determined

C) A\$24      L#15

Symbols: According to number of vowels in the word
1 vowel: \$, 2 vowels: #,3 vowels: @,4 vowels: !
Number: Number of letters in word^2 – 1
Alphabet according to first letter of Word. Observe that words start from S or E or T or N or F
S => A, E => D, T => H, N => J, F => L
So: code for Seven is
2 vowels so #, 5 letters so 5^2 -1 = 24, first letter S so S => A. So code becomes A#24

2) What is the code for ‘Seventeen’?
A) L!80
B) A@80
C) D@80
D) A!80
E) Cannot be determined

D) A!80

3) What is the code for ‘Seventy’?

B) A\$48
C) A#49
D) A#48
E) Cannot be determined

D) A#48

4) ‘D!63 J!63’ will be the code for
A) Eighteen Eighty
B) Nineteen Fourteen
C) Eighteen Nineteen
D) Eighteen Sixteen
E) Cannot be determined

C) Eighteen Nineteen

5) Which is the code for ‘Twenty Eighty’?
A) H\$35   D#28
B) H\$35   D#35
C) H@35   D#35
D) H\$35    D\$35
E) Cannot be determined

B) H\$35   D#35

Directions (6-10): Study the following information to answer the given questions:

In a certain code,
‘Jammu Haridwar Nanded Puri’ is written as      ‘H#12   %15L  \$9N   F@21’,
‘Jaipur Hyderabad Rajouri Bengaluru’ is written as  ‘Z#24   \$18P  F%24  H@15’,
‘Majuli Udaipur Mysuru Kasaragod’ is written as    ‘K\$15   I%24  @18S  K#15’, and
‘Nagpur Palakkad Varanasi Gwalior’ is written as   ‘@15L   E@18  %21N  \$21T’.

6) Which is the code for ‘Chennai’?
A) B\$18
B) A\$18
C) A\$20
D) A#18
E) Cannot be Determined

B) A\$18

Observe all numbers are multiple of 3.
Number: (Number of letters in word – 1) * 3
Observe 4 symbols are used and there are words ending in 4 letters only –u , r, d, i
So u – #, r – @, d – %, i – \$
Alphabet: first letter of word – 2. If the first letter represents number ≤ 13 (26/2) then alphabet written at start, but if first letter represents number > 13 (26/2) then alphabet written at end
So
Jammu will be coded as:
J = 10 which is ≤ 13, J-2 => H, last letter u => #, and number of letters in 5 so (5-1) * 3 = 12
So H #12
Puri will be coded as:
P = 16 which is > 13, P-2 => N, last letter i => \$, and number of letters in 4 so (4-1) * 3 = 9
So H #12

7) What is the code for ‘Sitapur Saharanpur ’?
A) #27Q     @20Q
B) @27Q    #18Q
C) %30Q    @18Q
D) @27Q    @18Q
E) Cannot be determined

D) @27Q    @18Q

8) What could ‘Z@12  D %24’ stand for?
E) Cannot be determined

9) What is the code of ‘Mangaluru Jaisalmer’?
A) K@24     H@18
B) K#24     H@24
C) K#21     H\$24
D) K#27     H@24
E) Cannot be determined

B) K#24     H@24

10) Which is the code for ‘Ghazibad Rewari’?
A) \$18P    E%21
B) \$15P   E%21
C) \$@P    E%24
