# HOW TO SOLVE CODING DECODING QUESTION

As you all know coding decoding question comes in almost every exam. So, in this post we will help you to solve coding decoding question. The question we are going to solve was asked in RBI Assistant 2012 exam and we have also shared the same question in one of our practice set.So the question is….

Question:Study the following information to answer the given questions:
In a certain code,
‘time and money’, is written as ‘ma jo ki’,
‘manage time well’ is written as ‘pa ru jo’,
‘earn more money’ is written as ‘zi ha ma’ and
‘earn well enough’ is written as ‘si ru ha’.

Solution:Compare first two lines as well as the code i.e compare “time and money” and “manage time well”

And now take out the words which is similar in both the sentences and now check the code .i.e here “time” comes in both sentence so the code for time will be “jo” as it is common.

Further, we will compare the next two lines i.e “earn more money” and “earn well enough”.

On comparing, we will see that here “earn” is common in both of the sentences, so in the code too it will be the same, so code for earn will be ha

Now,again in these type of questions, we have to find the code for each word.

So, we will  now compare 3rd and 1st sentence

“earn more money”==”time and money”… “zi ha ma==”ma jo ki“………”money” is similar in both so code for “money” will bema

On comparing 2nd and 4th

Earn well enough”==”manage time well” ………..”si ru ha”==”pa ru jo“….”well” is similar in both so code code for “well” –“ru

Now, we have extracted code for

well==ru
money==ma
time==jo
earn==ha

Now according to the question :
‘time and money’, is written as ‘ma jo ki’,
‘manage time well’ is written as ‘pa ru jo’,
‘earn more money’ is written as ‘zi ha ma’ and
‘earn well enough’ is written as ‘si ru ha’.

Now the leftover words…..

In the first sentence, code for “time==jo” and “money==ma“, so for “and” it will be “ki

Notice the second sentence here…..we have extracted the code for “time” and “well” so the code for “manage” will be “pa“.

In the third sentence, we have extracted code for “earn” and “money“, so code for “more” will be “zi

In the last sentence, we have code for “earn” and “well“, so the code for “enough” will be “si“.

Now questions:

1.What is the code for ‘earn’?
A. si
B. ru
C. ha
D. ma
E. Cannot be determined

Here, the answer will be Option C.

2.Which of the following represents ‘more time’?

4.Which of the following may represent’ ‘money matters’?

B. ma pa
C. fi ma
D. ha ma

Answer will be Option C. Take a quick glance at the options, as we know code for Money is “ma”. Matter word was not there in our code, so look for the word other than the word in our code.

5.What does ‘ru’ stand for?
A. well
B. manage
C. time
D. enough

Ans will be option A.
