Solutions:
S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. Each letter in the word is moved three steps forward to obtain the corresponding letter of the code.

S2.Ans.(c)
Sol.

So, F is the grandmother of D.
S3.Ans.(a)
Sol.

So, B is the son of F.
S4. Ans.(d)
Sol.
 Letter T E A C H R Code L M K J N P
The code for HEART is NMKPL.
S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. A = 1, B = 2, ….., Z = 26.
So, BALL = B + A + L + L = 2 + 1 + 12 + 12 = 27.
S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. Putting A = 1, B = 2, C = 3, ….. X = 24, Y = 25, Z = 26, we have:
ZEBRA → Z/E/B/R/A → 26/5/2/18/1 → 2652181
COBRA → C/O/B/R/A → 3/15/2/18/1 → 3152181
S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. Let A = 1, B = 2, C = 3, ……, X = 24, Y = 25, Z = 26
Then, M = 13 = 1 + 3 = 4;
O = 15 = 1 + 5 = 6;
B = 2; I = 9;
L = 12 = 1 + 2 = 3
T = 20 = 2 + 0 = 2;
Y = 25 = 2 + 5 = 7
So, MOBILITY = 46293927.
Similarly, X = 24 = 2 + 4 = 6; N = 14 = 1 + 4 = 5.
So, EXAMINATION = 56149512965
S8. Ans.(d)
Sol. Pattern
22, 32, 42
12, 22, 32
32, 42, 52
S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. A man sleeps on a ‘bed’ and as given, ‘bed’ is called ‘window’. So, a man will sleep on the ‘window’.
S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. The aeroplanes fly in the ‘sky’ and the ‘sky’ is called ‘sea’. So, the aeroplanes fly in the ‘sea’.
