**Q1.If SMART is coded as 93180 and STUDY is coded as 902410, then how will EXAMPUR be coded as?**

A.5813256

B.4513628

C.5813628

As,

SMART= S(19)M(13)A(1)R(18)T(20)

= S(1*9)M(1*3)A(1)R(1*8)T(2*0)

= S(9)M(3)A(1)R(8)T(0)

=93180

And

STUDY= S(19)T(20)U(21)D(4)Y(25)

= S(1*9)T(2*0)U(2*1)D(4)Y(2*5)

= S(9)T(0)U(2)D(4)Y(10)

=902410

Similarly,

EXAMPUR= E(5)X(24)A(1)M(13)P(16)U(21)R(18)

= E(5)X(2*4)A(1)M(1*3)P(1*6)U(2*1)R(1*8)

= E(5)X(8)A(1)M(3)P(6)U(2)R(8)

= 5813628

Thus, the correct answer is option C.

**Q2.Which number will replace the question mark (?) in the following series?**

71, 79, 95, 127, ?, 319

A.159

B.165

C.191

D.218

**Solution of Q2-**

Logic is-

71+8=79

79+16=95

95+32=127

127+64=191

191+128=319

Thus, the correct answer is option C.

**Q3.In a code language. DENSITY is written as QGEWFZN. How will TRAITOR be written as in that language?**

A.DTUMYUY

B.DTULTUY

C.DCGMYUY

D.KOUMYUY

**Solution of Q3-**

Thus, the correct answer is option A.

**Q4.If TALK = 7 and TASTE = 44, then PRODUCT = ________.**

A.84

B.34

C.43

D.49

**Solution of Q4-**

Logic- square of (number of letters)-6

As, TALK=square of 4-6=16-6=10

And TASTE= square of 5-6=25-6=19

Similarly,

PRODUCT= square of 7-6=49-6=43

Thus, Option C is the correct response.
