» Explain it
C

 Code Numbers 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Letters B C D F G H J K L M

Codes for consonants after 'N'

 Code Numbers 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Letters P Q R S T V W X Y Z

Let us each of the options one by one starting with option A.

Option A - 381+2+2 - In this code '+' is used only when none of the given conditions are applicable and this shows that there must be two vowels in the word. The second blank filled with a vowel i.e. any of (a,e,i,o,u) and the first blank has the letter whose code is 1, Q and C are such two letters whose codes are 1.

After filling the blank with possible letters , we get no meaningful word, thus option A is wrong.

FLQOD_D or FLCOD_D

Option B - 38##2#2 - Use of symbol '#' signifies that condition III is applicable here, that means the codes of consonants are 1 more thna their original codes, but we can see that the consonants are coded with their original codes only here. Thus option B is also eliminated.

Option C- 38^\$2@2 - Use of three different symbols signifies that there must be three vowels and condition II is applicable. Let us check the possibilities of the vowels in both the blanks.

FLAODAD , FLEODED , FLOODOD , FLIODID, FLUODUD , FLAODED, FLOODED, FLOODAD

Out of these only FLOODED is the meaningful English word.

Hence option C is correct.
