Solutions:
S1. Ans.(b)
Sol.
 Letter B R A I N T E Code * @ ÷ # × \$ +
The code for TRAIN is \$@÷#×.
S2. Ans.(c)
Sol.
‘ski rps tri’ -> ‘nice Sunday morning’ ……(i)
‘teh sti rps’ -> ‘every Tuesday morning’ …..(ii)
‘ski ptr qlm’ -> ‘nice market place’ ……(iii)
From (i) & (ii) we get ‘rps’ stands for ‘morning’.
From (i) & (iii) we get ‘ski’ stands for ‘nice’.
Thus, in (i) statement, ‘tri’ stands for ‘Sunday’.
S3. Ans.(b)
Sol.
‘ABC ’ -> ‘bright little boy’ …..(i)
‘ADE ’ -> ‘tall big boy’ …..(ii)
‘FCG ’ -> ‘beautiful little flower’ …..(iii)
From (i) & (ii) we get ‘A’ means ‘boy’.
From (i) & (iii) we get ‘C’ means ‘little’.
Thus, in (i) statement ‘B’ means ‘bright’.
S4. Ans.(c)
Sol.
‘786’ -> ‘study very hard’ …..(i)
‘958’ -> ‘hard work pays’ ….(ii)
‘645’ -> ‘study and work’ …..(iii)
From (i) & (ii) we get ‘8’ means ‘hard’.
From (i) & (iii) we get ‘6’ means ‘study.
Thus, in (i) statement ‘7’ means ‘very’.
S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Cleary, we have:
 Letter A B C D E F G H I J K L M N Value 1 3 5 7 9 11 13 15 17 19 21 23 25 27
So, GLAD = 13 + 23 + 1 + 7 = 44
S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. The code for QKTBFM is 425683.
