ReplyDeleteQ - 1. In a certain code HOUSE is written as FTVPI, how is CHAIR written in that code?

ReplyDeleteanswer- HOUSE = FTVPI

here the next letter to each letter present in "HOUSE" and written in reverse sequence in the code.

SO, C H A I R = D(next to C) I(next to H)B(next to A)J(next to I)S(next to R)

=DIBJS

now reverse the sequence

="SJBID"

this is the answer.

ReplyDeleteH O U S E

The next alphabet after H is I like wise the correspionding letter to 'O' is P, for U is V, S is T & E is F. Now putting all the corresponding alphabets together, it becomes I P V T F and according to the code if u reverse them it becomes F T V P I. Do the same thing with CHAIR C=D, H=I, A=B, I=J & R=S. Together they become D I B J S read them in reverse they become S J B I D
