## Find Correct Codes For Words

In bank exams, questions can be asked on encoding and decoding words. Below are few sample questions.

Question 1

In a particular encoding scheme, if 'BELGIUM' is denoted by a code 'DGNIKWO', how 'CHENNAI' will be coded?

a)EJPPGCK
b)EGJPPCK
c)EJGPPCK
d)EJGPCPK
e)EJPGPCK

Let us try to find out the relation between 'BELGIUM' and its code 'DGNIKWO'

Considering alphabets order, D occurs to the second right of B, G occurs to the second right of E and so on. Proceeding in a similar way, the code for 'CHENNAI' will be 'EJGPPCK'.

Question 2

In a language, if 'DENMARK' is coded as 'CFMNZSJ', then how 'EUROPE' will be coded in the same language.

a) DVPOQF
b) DVOPQF
c) DQVOPF
d) DVQPOF
e) DVPQOF

Let us compare the word 'DENMARK' and its code 'CFMNBQL'. C occurs to the left of D, F occurs to the right of E, M occurs to the left of N, N occurs to the right of M and so on.
Proceeding in a similar manner, the code for 'EUROPE' will be 'DVQPOF'

Question 3

If 'DELHI' is coded as 'DFLII', how 'HYDERABAD' will be coded?

a)HZDFRBBBD
b)HZDFRBCBD
c)HZEFRBBBD
d)HZDFRABBD
e)HYDFRBBBD

Comparing 'DELHI' and its code 'DFLII', we can find that the letters in odd positions i.e D,L and I are maintained, while the letters in even positions namely E and H are replaced by the immediate right neighbours. (E is replaced with F and H is replaced with I)

Therefore, 'HYDERABAD' will be coded as 'HZDFRBBBD'

Question 4

If 'COCHIN' is encoded as 'WKWRQL', how 'KASARAGOD' will be encoded?

a)OYGYHYSKV
b)OYGYHYSLV
c)OYGYIYSKV
d)OYGZHYSKV
e)OVGYHYSKV
