3. If 'LOAN' is written as 2135, 'CONE' is written as 3762 and 'ROAD' is written as 8912, what could be the code for 'LANDER'?

A. 968513

B. 892315

C. 123456

D.  cannot determine.

Explanation:

Comparing both the words LOAN, CONE

O, N is common

Comparing both the codes LOAN, CONE

2,3 are common

so, O is either 2 or 3

N is either 2 or 3

Comparing both the words  CONE, ROAD

O is the common

Comparing both the codes CONE, ROAD

2 is common

O=2 where N=3

where (L, A)=(1,5) Now L is either 1 or 5

(C, E)=(7,6)

(R,D)=(8,9)

Comparing both the words  LOAN, ROAD

O, A is the common

Comparing both the codes LOAN, ROAD

2,1 is common

Then we can determine A=1

If A=1 then L=5

E will be either 6 or 7

In 'LANDER' word, both R and D are present so both 9 and 8 should be present.

The code for 'LANDER' is 513986 or 513987

So, we can determine the code in this way 968513

4. If  'EARTH' is written as 34215 and  'VENUS' is written as 73089 what is the code for 'SATURN'?

A. 789012

B. 941820

C. 123456

D. cannot determine

Explanation:

Comparing both the words EARTH and VENUS

E is common.

Comparing both the codes of EARTH and VENUS

3 is common

so, E=3

According to the question SATURN

S=9 from VENUS code

A=4 from EARTH code

T=1 from EARTH code

U=8 from VENUS code

R=2 from EARTH code

N=0 from VENUS code

The code for SATURN is 941820
