16. If GO = 32, SHE =49, then SOME will be equal to

A. 56 B. 58 C. 62 D. 64

Answer Answer: Option A Explanation: In the given code, Z = 1, Y = 2, X = 3, ...., C = 24, B = 25, Z = 26.
So, GO = 20 + 12 = 32 and SHE 8 + 19 + 22 = 49.
similarly, SOME = S + O + M + E = 8 + 12 + 14 + 22 = 56.

17. If AT = 20, BAT = 40, then CAT will be equal to

A. 30 B. 50 C. 60 D. 70

Answer Answer: Option C Explanation: Taking A = 1, B = 2, ....., T = 20, ....., Z = 26, we have:
AT = A * T = 1 * 20 = 20; BAT = B * A * T = 2 * 1 * 20 = 40.
So, CAT = C * A * T = 3 * 1 * 20 = 60.

19. If DEER = 12215 and HIGH =5645, how will you code HEEL ?

A. 2328 B. 3449 C. 4337 D. 5229

Answer Answer: Option D Explanation: Clearly, each letter is coded by a numeral which is 3 less than the numeral denoting
the position of the letter in English alphabet.
The code for the word is obtained by joining together physically the number codes for the individual letters.
H, E, L are 8th, 5th and 12th letters respectively. So, their codes are 5, 2 and 9 respectively.
Thus, the code for HEEL becomes 5229.

20. If E = 5 and HOTEL = 12, how will you code LAMB ?

A. 7 B. 10 C. 26 D. 28

Answer Answer: Option A Explanation: We have: A = 1, B =2, C = 3, ....., Y = 25, Z = 26.
Clearly, the code for a word is obtained by dividing the sum of the individual values of its letters
by the number of letters in the word.
Thus, HOTEL = H + O + T + E + L ⁄ 5 = 8 + 15 + 20 + 5 + 12 ⁄ 5 = 60 ⁄ 5 = 12.
So, LAMB = L + A + M + B ⁄ 4 = 12 + 1 + 13 + 2 ⁄ 4 = 28 ⁄ 4 = 7.
