Answers and Explanations
1. Answer -
We have to ‘translate’ code. As we can see that this word is not given in any steps but so we can solve
Step I: First we will count the letters of that word that is 9, then we put digit 9 at the right end.
Step II: we will put the last letter of that word then it will like- E9
Step III: at the last step ‘t’ is coded for ‘@’(the first letter of each word is coded by a specific symbol like here ‘t’ is coded for ‘@’. We can find the first coded symbol by looking at the other given words.
The answer will be - @E9
2. Answer -
We have to find the code of ‘plan’. Now the same steps follow. Plan is given in the first step. Total count of letters is 4 and the last letter is N and ‘p’ is coded as & So, the final answer will be- &N4
3. Answer -
We have given ‘%D4’ and we have to find it’s a word. So we can say that the number of letters will be 4 and the last digit will be D and ‘%’ is represent to G. so in 3 step, we can find this word, the final answer will be Good
4. Answer -
Clearly, India cannot part with a state that is a major foreign exchange earner to it. So, argument I holds strong. Further, giving away a piece of land unconditionally and unreasonably is no solution to settle disputes. So, argument II is vague.
5. Answer -
I directly follows from the statement and so is implicit. Also, the statement is a suggestion and does not tell about a government policy or its position of funds. So, II is not implicit.
