Directions (8-10) :

This coding decoding question is based on the new pattern. In this, question the words are coded as per following rules.

(i) If the word contains an alphabet that is repeated more than once in that word, then it is converted into an alphabet with rank (in the alphabetical series) which is equivalent to the number of times that alphabet is repeated in the input word.
The second alphabet of the code is the highest ranked (in the alphabetical series) vowel in that particular word, whereas the third letter of the code is the highest ranked consonant.

 For example: 

(ii) If the input word doesn’t satisfy condition (i) given above, then the first letter of code is the reverse of the greatest vowel in that word (A-Z, E-V, I-R…) and its next vowel in the alphabetical series becomes the second letter of the code. The last letter of the word becomes the last letter of the code.

For example: 

8) Answer: A

Locomotive –COV

9) Answer: A

BIT VID ROS CIS – martial fared is exercise

10) Answer: A

Boy is the code for the word – Dolly
