# Verbal Test Preparation for Army, Navy, Air Force |Test-1|

#### Verbal Test Preparation for Army, Navy, Air Force

1.In a certain code ‘RATIONAL’ is written as ‘TARNOILA’. How would ‘BRUTAL’ be written in that code?

1. UBRTAL
2. URBLAT
3. UBRATL
4. URBTAL
Sol: Option 2
Explanation: Letters are reversed in groups of 3 which can be shown as:
RAT = TAR, ION = NOI. etc. So for BRUTAL
BRU = UBR
TAL = LAT
so code for BRUTAL = UBRLAT

2.In a certain code ‘PURPOSE’ is written as ‘UPPRSOE’. How would ‘WATER’ be written in that code?

1. WATRE
2. AWTRE
3. AWETR
4. WEATR
5. TRWAE
Sol: Option 3
Explanation: Interchange the letter in the pair of two and keep the last letter as it is.
WA = AW
TE = ET
So code of WATER is AWETR.

3. In a certain code ‘FORGIVE’ is written as ‘DPPHGWC’. How would ‘REQUEST’ be written in that code?

1. PFOVCUR
2. TFOVCRU
3. POFCVUR
4. TOFCVUR
5. None of these
Sol: Option 5
Explanation: The letters move –2, +1, alternately R-2=P, E+1=F, Q-2=O, U+1=V and so on. So code of REQUEST is PFOVCTR

4. DIRECTIONS for questions 4 -8 : The word ‘CALM’ is written according to some code, using the same code the word ‘YEAR’ may be written as one of the five alternatives given for the question. Find the correct alternative.
1. If CALM is written as HEOO , YEAR may be written as
1. DHDS
2. DTDH
3. DDHT
4. DIDT
5. DHSR
Sol: Option 4
Explanation: Each letter moves +5, +4, +3, +2.
Therefore, ‘DIDT’ is a code for ‘YEAR’

5. If CALM is written as XZON, YEAR may be written as

1. BVZI
2. BZVI
3. BVIZ
4. BVZJ
5. BVNI
Sol: Option 1
Explanation: The concept of Reverse EJOTY is followed.
Or we can also say that sum of letter & its respective coded letter is 27.
Y+B=25+2=27, E+V=5+22=27, and so on.
Hence code for YEAR is ‘BVZI’.
