Explanation

Direction (1-5)

B=1, C=2, D=3, F=4, G=5, H=6, J=7, K=8
L=1, M=2, N=3, P=4, Q=5, R=6, S=7, T=8
V=1, W=2, X=3, Y=4, Z=5

 

From the example we get the code of vowels=

A E I O U
# ! * @ $

 

  1. B

As more than three vowels are in the word then using the 2nd conditions,

First two vowels both “e” will be coded as “&” and rest vowels will be coded as the vowel’s table and consonants will be coded as numbers.

Electrician=&1&286*2*#3

Hence, option B.

 

  1. A

In the word “user” 3rd condition is follow,

USER=$7!6 (so consonants code will be changed to next higher value)

Then the code of  “user” is “$8!7”.

 

In the word “gone” no condition is follow so we will change all the letters according to the vowels and consonants code.

Gone=[email protected]!

Hence, option A.

 

  1. C

In the word “normal” 4th condition is follow,

[email protected]#1

And then we will write the codes of consonants in decreasing order.

Normal= [email protected]#1

Hence, option C.

 

  1. D

In the word “online” 1st condition is follow,

So 2nd last letter of the word “n” will be coded as “%”

[email protected]*%!

Hence, option D.

 

  1. B

In the word “fight” 4th condition is follow,

So vowel’s code position will be the same but consonant’s code position will be in decreasing order within the word.

Fight=4*568

After decreasing order,

Fight=8*654

 

In the words “the” and “crime” no condition is follow,

The=86!

Crime=26*2

Hence, option B.

 

Direction (6-10):

  1. C

9 people are sitting around a circular.

Hence, option C.

 

  1. B

O likes White color.

Hence, option B.

 

  1. A

E likes Black color.

Hence, option A.

 

  1. D

F likes Silver and M is 3rd to the right of F.

Hence, option D.

 

  1. A

Four people are sitting between E and D.

Hence, option A.
