What is the code of the word ‘Wisdom’?
» Explain it
B
Following the common explanation we can say that the code for word 'Wisdom' is '$L19'.

Hence, the correct answer is option B.
 
Common Explanation:
 
In the code given for each word,
 
Each of the symbols in the code represents the number of letters in its corresponding word. Such that:
 
‘%’ for the word in which the number of letters are odd.
‘$’ for the word in which the number of letters are even.

 
For example, number of letters in ‘Earth’ are 5 which is an odd number. Hence, the symbol is ‘%’.
 
Similarly, number of letters in ‘Laughs’ are 6 which is an even number. Hence, the symbol is ‘$’.
 
The second letter in the code denotes the reversed letter of the second letter from right end of its corresponding word.
 
For example, second letter from right end in ‘Earth’ is ‘T’ and the reversed letter of ‘T’ is ‘G’. Hence, the letter is ‘G’.
 
Similarly, second letter from right end in ‘Laughs’ is ‘H’ and the reversed letter of ‘H’ is ‘S’. Hence, the letter is ‘S’.
 
The digit of each code denotes the numeric position of third letter from left end in alphabetic series of its corresponding word.
 
For example, third letter from left end in ‘Earth’ is ‘R’ and the numeric position of ‘R’ is ‘18’. Hence, the number is ‘18’.
 
Similarly, third letter from left end in ‘Laughs’ is ‘U’ and the numeric position of ‘U’ is ‘21’. Hence, the number is ‘21’.
 
Thus, the code of Earth is ‘%G18’ and the code of Laughs is ‘$S21’.
2
‘$Z1’ is the code for which of the following word?
» Explain it
D
Following the common explanation we can say that ‘$Z1’ is the code for ‘Star’.

Hence, the correct answer is option D.
 
Common Explanation:
 
In the code given for each word,
 
Each of the symbols in the code represents the number of letters in its corresponding word. Such that:
 
‘%’ for the word in which the number of letters are odd.
‘$’ for the word in which the number of letters are even.

 
For example, number of letters in ‘Earth’ are 5 which is an odd number. Hence, the symbol is ‘%’.
 
Similarly, number of letters in ‘Laughs’ are 6 which is an even number. Hence, the symbol is ‘$’.
 
The second letter in the code denotes the reversed letter of the second letter from right end of its corresponding word.
 
For example, second letter from right end in ‘Earth’ is ‘T’ and the reversed letter of ‘T’ is ‘G’. Hence, the letter is ‘G’.
 
Similarly, second letter from right end in ‘Laughs’ is ‘H’ and the reversed letter of ‘H’ is ‘S’. Hence, the letter is ‘S’.
 
The digit of each code denotes the numeric position of third letter from left end in alphabetic series of its corresponding word.
 
For example, third letter from left end in ‘Earth’ is ‘R’ and the numeric position of ‘R’ is ‘18’. Hence, the number is ‘18’.
 
Similarly, third letter from left end in ‘Laughs’ is ‘U’ and the numeric position of ‘U’ is ‘21’. Hence, the number is ‘21’.
 
Thus, the code of Earth is ‘%G18’ and the code of ‘$S21’.
3
What is the code of the word ‘Imagination’?
» Explain it
A
Following the common explanation we can say that the code for word 'Imagination ' is '%L1'.

Hence, the correct answer is option A.
 
Common Explanation:
 
In the code given for each word,
 
Each of the symbols in the code represents the number of letters in its corresponding word. Such that:
 
‘%’ for the word in which the number of letters are odd.
‘$’ for the word in which the number of letters are even.

 
For example, number of letters in ‘Earth’ are 5 which is an odd number. Hence, the symbol is ‘%’.
 
Similarly, number of letters in ‘Laughs’ are 6 which is an even number. Hence, the symbol is ‘$’.
 
The second letter in the code denotes the reversed letter of the second letter from right end of its corresponding word.
 
For example, second letter from right end in ‘Earth’ is ‘T’ and the reversed letter of ‘T’ is ‘G’. Hence, the letter is ‘G’.
 
Similarly, second letter from right end in ‘Laughs’ is ‘H’ and the reversed letter of ‘H’ is ‘S’. Hence, the letter is ‘S’.
 
The digit of each code denotes the numeric position of third letter from left end in alphabetic series of its corresponding word.
 
For example, third letter from left end in ‘Earth’ is ‘R’ and the numeric position of ‘R’ is ‘18’. Hence, the number is ‘18’.
 
Similarly, third letter from left end in ‘Laughs’ is ‘U’ and the numeric position of ‘U’ is ‘21’. Hence, the number is ‘21’.
 
Thus, the code of Earth is ‘%G18’ and the code of ‘$S21’.

‘%I3’ is the code of which of the following words?
» Explain it
C
Following the common explanation, we have:

Code of ‘Depository’ = $I16
Code of ‘Apart’ = %I1
Code of ‘Victory’ = %I3
Code of ‘Flight’ = $S9

Hence, the correct answer is option C.
 
Common Explanation:
 
In the code given for each word,
 
Each of the symbols in the code represents the number of letters in its corresponding word. Such that:
 
‘%’ for the word in which the number of letters are odd.
‘$’ for the word in which the number of letters are even.

Similarly, number of letters in ‘Laughs’ are 6 which is an even number. Hence, the symbol is ‘$’.
 
The second letter in the code denotes the reversed letter of the second letter from right end of its corresponding word.
 
For example, second letter from right end in ‘Earth’ is ‘T’ and the reversed letter of ‘T’ is ‘G’. Hence, the letter is ‘G’.
 
Similarly, second letter from right end in ‘Laughs’ is ‘H’ and the reversed letter of ‘H’ is ‘S’. Hence, the letter is ‘S’.
 
The digit of each code denotes the numeric position of third letter from left end in alphabetic series of its corresponding word.
 
For example, third letter from left end in ‘Earth’ is ‘R’ and the numeric position of ‘R’ is ‘18’. Hence, the number is ‘18’.
 
Similarly, third letter from left end in ‘Laughs’ is ‘U’ and the numeric position of ‘U’ is ‘21’. Hence, the number is ‘21’.
 
Thus, the code of Earth is ‘%G18’ and the code of ‘$S21’.
5
What is the code of ‘Dreams Humanity’ in the given code language?
» Explain it
A
Following the common explanation we can say that ‘$N5 $G13’ is the code of the word ‘Dreams Humanity’.

Hence, the correct answer is option A.
 
Common Explanation:
 
In the code given for each word,
 
Each of the symbols in the code represents the number of letters in its corresponding word. Such that:
 
‘%’ for the word in which the number of letters are odd.
‘$’ for the word in which the number of letters are even.

 
For example, number of letters in ‘Earth’ are 5 which is an odd number. Hence, the symbol is ‘%’.
 
Similarly, number of letters in ‘Laughs’ are 6 which is an even number. Hence, the symbol is ‘$’.
 
The second letter in the code denotes the reversed letter of the second letter from right end of its corresponding word.
 
For example, second letter from right end in ‘Earth’ is ‘T’ and the reversed letter of ‘T’ is ‘G’. Hence, the letter is ‘G’.
 
Similarly, second letter from right end in ‘Laughs’ is ‘H’ and the reversed letter of ‘H’ is ‘S’. Hence, the letter is ‘S’.
 
The digit of each code denotes the numeric position of third letter from left end in alphabetic series of its corresponding word.
 
For example, third letter from left end in ‘Earth’ is ‘R’ and the numeric position of ‘R’ is ‘18’. Hence, the number is ‘18’.
 
Similarly, third letter from left end in ‘Laughs’ is ‘U’ and the numeric position of ‘U’ is ‘21’. Hence, the number is ‘21’.
 
Thus, the code of Earth is ‘%G18’ and the code of ‘$S21’.
