If ‘PENDULUMEDU’ is coded as ‘FWMVKLFWVNF’, then what will be the code for ‘PHOTOGRAPHY’?
Correct Answer : a ) LGLSKGBSKZIExplanation :
Let us assume ‘A’ is numbered as ‘1’, ‘B’ is numbered as ‘2’ and so on till ‘Z’ is numbered as ‘26’
According to the question,
‘PENDULUMEDU’ is coded as ‘FWMVKLFWVNF’
Here, the alphabets of the words ‘PENDULUMEDU’ are divided into two halves leaving the middle alphabet i.e. ‘L’. Then, the alphabets of the first half and second half are written in reversed order. After then, corresponding to the alphabets in the obtained halves, the opposite alphabets are written.
NOTE: The pair of those alphabets which have the sum of their numerical values as 27 are known as opposite alphabets.
Thus logic for the above code can be explained as
Similarly, the code for ‘PHOTOGRAPHY’ will be
From the above figure, code for ‘PHOTOGRAPHY’ will be ‘LGLSKGBSKZI’.
Hence, (a) is the correct answer.
