Question of The Day28-01-2021

If the code for PEN is 40 and the code for BUDDHA is 45, then what is the code for ALGEBRA?

Answer

Correct Answer : b ) 51

Explanation :

Let us assume A is numbered as 1, B as 2, and so on until Z is numbered 26.

The pattern followed by the given words is that the numerical value of the word is 5 more than the sum of numerical values corresponding to each alphabet

According to the question,

Code for PEN is 40

⇒ PEN = (16 + 5 + 14) + 5 = 35 + 5 = 40

Similarly, Code for BUDDHA = (2 + 21 + 4 + 4 + 8 + 1) + 5

⇒ BUDDHA = 40 + 5 = 45

Thus, code for ALGEBRA will be

⇒ ALGEBRA = (1 + 12 + 7 + 5 + 2 + 18 + 1) + 5 = 46 + 5 = 51

Hence, (b) is the correct answer.

Such type of question is aksed in various competitive exams like SSC CGL, SSC CHSL, RRB NTPC, etc.
