41. If each of the letters in the English alphabet is assigned odd numerical value beginning A =1, B = 3 and so on, what will be the total value of the letters of the word INDIAN ?

A. 86 B. 88 C. 89 D. 96

Answer Answer: Option D Explanation: Cleraly, we have:

Letter

A

B

C

D

E

F

G

H

I

J

K

L

M

N

Value

1

3

5

7

9

11

13

15

17

19

21

23

25

27

So, INDIAN = I + N + D + I + A + N
= 17 + 27 + 7 + 17 + 1 + 27 = 96.

42. 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.

43. 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.

Answer Answer: Option C Explanation: Clearly, each letter is represented by the numeral denoting its position from the end of the English alphabet
ie Z =1, Y =2, ....., M =14, ....., B = 25, A = 26.
Then, SUN = S + U + N = 8 + 6 + 13 =27.
So, CAT = C + A + T = 24 + 26 + 7 = 57.

45. 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.
