## Introduction

Coding-Decoding is a type of logical reasoning problem that involves deciphering patterns or codes to understand the relationships between different elements. It requires analytical thinking and the ability to recognize hidden rules or sequences.
The objective of Coding-Decoding problems is to decode a given set of information or patterns based on certain rules. These rules could involve rearranging letters, numbers, or symbols according to a specific pattern.

Example: In a given code, the number '15789' is represented as 'XTZAL,' and '2349' is encoded as 'NPSUU.' Following the same coding pattern, what would be the code for the number '23549'?
A) NPTUL
B) PNTSL
C) NPTSL
D) NBTSL

To decode the pattern:
'1' corresponds to 'X'
'2' corresponds to 'N'
'3' corresponds to 'T'
'4' corresponds to 'S'
'9' corresponds to 'U'

Now, apply this pattern to '23549':
'2' corresponds to 'N'
'3' corresponds to 'T'
'5' corresponds to 'S'
'4' corresponds to 'S'
'9' corresponds to 'U'

Therefore, the code for '23549' is 'NTSSU.'
C) NPTSL

## Key Concepts

• Alphabets and Numbers Mapping: In coding-decoding, each alphabet or number is assigned a specific code. This mapping could be direct, reverse, or follow a specific pattern.

• Letter Shifting: Codes may involve shifting letters forward or backward in the alphabet. For example, if the original letter is 'A' and the code involves a shift of 3, the coded letter would be 'D'.

• Number Substitution: Numeric values may be used to represent letters. For instance, A=1, B=2, C=3, and so on.

• Symbol Substitution: Symbols or special characters can be used as codes for letters or numbers.

• Word Formation: Codes might represent entire words or parts of words, leading to the formation of new terms.

Example

Let's consider a simple example to illustrate coding-decoding:
Original: CAT
Code: FDW
The coding pattern involves shifting each letter two positions forward in the alphabet.
C becomes E
A becomes C
T becomes W
So, applying the rule of shifting each letter two positions forward, the coded word for "CAT" is "FDW."

## Tips and Tricks  for Solving Coding-Decoding Problems

• Identify the Pattern: Carefully analyze the given examples to identify the pattern or rule applied for coding and decoding.

• Work Step by Step: Break down the given codes or decode step by step. Understand the logic behind each transformation.

• Look for Commonalities: Check for common patterns across multiple examples. This may help in deciphering the coding rule.

• Practice Regularly: Coding-decoding improves with practice. Solve a variety of problems to enhance your skills in recognizing patterns.
