(a)DSFEJDDXSHKH

(b) JEFSDCXSHKH

(c) JEFSDDXSHKH

(d) JEFSDDZUJMJ

**Ans.(c)**

**Sol.**

**Keeping the middle letter as it is, the first five and the last five letters of the word are written in the reverse order. In the group of letters so obtained, the first five letters are each moved one step forward, the middle letter is moved two steps forward and the last five letters are each moved one step backward to get the code. Thus, we have:**

**CREDI/B/ILITY → IDERC/B/YTILI → JEFSD/D/XSHKH**

**Q6. In a certain code language ‘pen pencil’ is written as ‘$£’, ‘easer sharpener’ is written as ‘@#’ and ‘pencil eraser’ is written as ‘$@’. Then, what is the code for ‘sharpener’?**

(a) #

(b) $

(c) @

(d) £

**Ans.(a)**

**Sol.**

**‘pen pencil’ -> ‘$£’ ……(i)**

**‘easer sharpener’ -> ‘@#’ ……(ii)**

**‘pencil eraser’ -> ‘$@’ …….(iii)**

**In (ii) and (iii), the common code symbol is ‘@’**

**So ‘@’ -> ‘eraser’.**

**Thus, in (ii) ‘#’ -> ‘sharpener’**

**Directions (9-10): Find the missing character in each of the following:**

(a) 180

(b) 100

(c) 135

(d) 160

**Ans.(c)**

**Sol. We have: 15 × 2 = 30, 2 × 7 = 14, 7 × 9 = 63.**

**So, missing number = 9 × 15 = 135.**

(a) 45

(b) 48

(c) 20

(d) 100

**Ans.(b)**

**Sol. We have : (15 – 5) × (2 + 6) = 80, (9 – 4) × (7 + 6) = 65**

**So, missing number = (13 – 11) × (16 + 8) = 48.**
