Question of The Day07-07-2022

Study the following information carefully and answer the question given below:

In a certain code language

‘Bad time to eat’ is written as ‘ sy bo nj kw’

‘Consume food and time’ is written as ‘sy ta ge mr’

‘Eat bad stuff only’ is written as ‘kw bo rd fp’

‘Only food and work’ is written as ‘ta fp mr ux’

What is the code for ‘Consume time to work’ in the given code language?

Correct Answer : c ) ux ge nj sy

Explanation :

We will use the pattern matching method to decode the given coded language.

Here, we will match the pattern of normal sentences with the given coded language.

As, 'time' is present in both 1 and 2 lines of normal language sentences then we will find the same pattern in coded language. ‘sy’ follows the same pattern in coded language. Therefore, Time is coded as ‘sy’

We can check the words that do not match in other sentences - 'to' is in only line 1 and the code 'nj' is in line 1 code only, so, ‘to’ is coded as ‘nj’, similarly, ‘stuff’ is coded as ‘rd’, ‘consume’ is coded as ‘ge’ and ‘work’ is coded as ‘ux’

So, the code for ‘Consume time to work’ is ‘ge sy nj ux’.

Hence, c is the correct answer.

We can see that the code for 'bad' and 'eat' cannot be determined.

And, in sentences 1 and 3, ‘bad’ and ‘eat’ are following the same pattern, and in coded language ‘bo’ and ‘kw’ follow the same pattern. Therefore, we cannot determine the code for ‘bad’ and ‘eat’ distinctively.
