Q6. In a certain language MITIGATE is written as MJVLKFZL. How will TERMINATE be written in the same code?

A) TFTPMSZGZ
B) TFUQNHTSZ
C) TFRSMSGZM
D) TFTPMSGAM

ANS: D

Explanation:

Here coding is done as M+0=M, I+1=J, T+2=V…so on
Hence for TERMINATE, coding will be T+0=T, E+1=F, R+2=T…..so on, giving us TFTPMSGAM

Q7. In a certain language ROLL is written as 9633. How will QUTT be written in the same code?

A) 7244
B) 8322
C) 8344
D) 9233

ANS: B

Explanation:

In ROLL, R=18, so write 1+8 = 9, O=15, so 1+5 = 6, L=12, so 1+2 = 3, and again L so again 3
So for QUTT, Q=17, so write 1+7 = 8, U=21, so 2+1 = 3, T=20, so 2+0 = 2 and again T=20 so again 2. Thus 8322
