Directions to Solve
In each of the questions below consists of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question. Read both the statements and answer
Question: How is 'No' coded in the code language?
I. 'Ne Pa Sic Lo' means 'But No None And' and 'Pa Lo Le Ne' means 'If None And But'.
II. 'Le Se Ne Sic' means 'If No None Will' and 'Le Pi Se Be' means 'Not None If All'.
In the two statements given in I, the common words are 'But', 'None', 'And' and the
common code words are 'Ne', 'Pa', ,'Lo'. So, 'Ne', 'Pa' and 'Lo' are codes for 'But', 'None' and 'And'. Thus, in the first statement, 'Sic' is the code for 'No'.
Who among P, Q, T, V and M is exactly in the middle when they are arranged in ascending order of their heights ?
I. V is taller than Q but shorter than M.
II. T is taller than Q and M but shorter than P.
From I, we have: M > V > Q.
From II, we have: T > Q, T > M, P > T.
Combining the above two, we have: P>T>M>V>Q i.e. Q
Clearly, M is in the middle.
Which code word stands for 'good' in the coded sentence 'sin co bye' which means 'He is good'?
I. In the same code language, 'co mot det' means 'They are good'.
II. In the same code language, 'sin mic bye' means 'He is honest'.
In the given statement and I, the common word is 'good' and the common code word is 'co'. So, 'co' is the code for 'good'.
In the given statement and II, the common words are 'He' and 'is' and the common code words are 'sin' and 'bye'. So 'sin' and 'bye' are the codes for 'He' and 'is'. Thus, in the given statement, 'co' is the code for 'good'.
What is the numerical code for 'water' in a certain code?
I. The code for 'give me water' is '719'.
II. The code for 'you can bring water for me' is written as '574186'.
In I and II, the common words are 'me' and 'water' and the common code numbers are '7' and '1'. So, the code for 'water' is either '7' or '1'.
How many visitors saw the exhibition yesterday?
I. Each entry pass holder can take up to three persons with him/her.
II. In all, 243 passes were sold yesterday.
From I and II, we find that maximum (243 x 3) i.e. 729 visitors saw the exhibition.
But the exact number cannot be determined.
