# Reasoning coding decoding question and answer Exercise 3

##### 1) In a certain code language, if a word PEN = 35, BOOK = 43, then PAPER = ?

1) 55

2) 56

3) 57

4) 58

Explanation:

In the word PEN,
P=16, E=5, N=14
PEN = 16+5+14 = 35
In the word BOOK,
B=2, O=15, K=11
BOOK = 2+15+15+11 = 43
Then PAPER should be P=16, A=1, P=16, E=5, R=18
PAPER = 16+1+16+5+18=56

##### 2) In a code language, if the word HAT = 29, COAT = 39 then the word PURSE = ?

1) 78

2) 77

3) 79

4) 80

Explanation:

In the word HAT,
H=8, A=1, T=20
HAT = 8+1+20 = 29
In the word COAT,
C=3, O=15, A=1, T=20
BOOK = 3+15+1+20 = 39
Then PURSE should be P=16, U=21, R=18, S=19, E=5
PURSE = 16+21+18+19+5=79

##### 3)In a certain code language, if the word CIRCLE = 50, SQUARE = 81 then the word TRIANGLE is

1) 85

2) 86

3) 84

4) 83

Explanation:

In the word CIRCLE,
C=3, I=9, R=18, L=12, E=5
CIRCLE = 3+9+18 +3+12+5= 50
In the word SQUARE,
S=19, Q=18, U=21, A=1, R=18, E=5
SQUARE = 19+18+21+1+18+5 = 81
Then TRIANGLE should be T=20, R=18, I=9, A=1, N=14, G=7, L=12, E=5
TRIANGLE = 20+18+9+1+14+7+12+5=86

##### 4)In a certain code language, if APPLE is coded as 10, CABBAGE is coded as 3, then the word ORANGE will be coded as

1) 17

2) 6

3) 10

4) 11

Explanation:

In the word APPLE,
A=1, P=16, L=12, E=5 APPLE = 1+16+16 +12+5= 50
50/5(total no of letters)=10
In the word CABBAGE,
C=3, A=1, B=2, G=7, E=5
CABBAGE = 3+1+2+2+1+7+5 = 21
21/7(total no of letters)=3
Then ORANGE should be 0=15, R=18, A=1, N=14, G=7, E=5
ORANGE= 15+18+1+14+7+5=60
60/6(total no of letters)=10

1) 15

2) 9

3) 14

4) 13

Explanation:

1) 16-14-10-24

2) 17-14-10-23

3) 16-14-10-24

4) 17-14-10-24

Explanation:

1) 17C3H11L

2) 21Y5F13L

3) 21Y5F11L

4) 21Z5F11L

Explanation:

1) E7B18

2) E6C19

3) E6B19

4) E6B18

Explanation:

1) king

2) pen

3) scooter

4) bag

Explanation:

1) computer

2) lecturer

3) student

4) Queen
