Q3. If the word LEADER is coded as 20-13-9-12-13-26, how would you write LIGHT?
(a) 20-16-15-17-22
(b) 20-16-17-15-27
(c) 20-17-16-18-23
(d) 20-17-15-16-28
Ans.(d)
Sol. L ⇒ 12 + 8 = 20
E ⇒ 5 + 8 = 13
A ⇒ 1 + 8 = 9
D ⇒ 4 + 8 = 12
E ⇒ 5 + 8 = 13
R ⇒ 18 + 8 = 26
Therefore,
L ⇒ 12 + 8 = 20
I ⇒ 9 + 8 = 17
G ⇒ 7 + 8 = 15
H = 8 + 8 = 16
T ⇒ 20 + 8 = 28

(a) – + =
(b) ÷ – =
(c) + – =
(d) × ÷ =
Ans.(c)
Sol. 24 * 16 * 8 * 32
⇒ 24 + 16 – 8 = 32
⇒ 40 – 8 = 32

Sol. 248 – 231 = 17
563 – 547 = 16
71 – 55 = 16
523 – 517 = 06
Except in the number pair 248 – 231, in all
other number pairs, the difference between the two numbers is an even number.
Q13. P scored more than R, Y scored as much D. L scored less than M. R scored more than Y. M scored less than D. Who scored the lowest?
(a) R
(b) M
