# Coding – Decoding – Quiz 10

### Introduction

A code is ‘arrangement of signs’. Accordingly, coding is a process for transmitting a message between the sender and the recipient without a third individual knowing it.
The coding and decoding test is set up to judge the candidate’s capacity to interpret the rule that codes a specific word/message and break the code to interpret the word. The article Coding - Decoding - Quiz 10 presents the important questions related coding and decoding topic.
Coding and decoding are divided into eight types. They are: 1. Letter coding 2. Direct letter coding 3. Number/Symbol coding 4. Matrix coding 5. Substitution coding 6. Deciphering message word coding 7. Deciphering number and symbol codes for messages 8. Jumbled coding
In this type of Coding Decoding questions,
• some messages are given in the coded language

• the code for a particular word or a message is asked

Points to remember while solving this Coding Decoding questions:
• Compare any two messages bearing a common word.

• Compare the codes of these two messages to find a common code-word.

• This common code word will represent the common word in the message.

• Repeat the same by picking all the possible combinations of common words from messages.

• Thus the entire message can be decoded and the codes for individual words can be found.

### Q1

In a certain code, BASIC is written as DDULE. How is LEADER written in that code ?
A. NGCFGT B. NHCGGU C. OGDFHT D. OHDGHU

B
The letters at the odd-numbered positions in the word are each moved two steps forward while those at the even-numbered positions are each moved three steps forward to obtain the corresponding letters of the code.
