In Mixed letter coding type of questions, three or four complete messages are given in the coded language and the code for a particular word is asked. To analyse such codes, any two messages bearing a common word are picked up. The common code word will mean that word. Proceeding smilarly by picking up all possible combinations of two, the entire message can be analysed.

In a certain code language,
(A) ‘pit dar na’ means ‘you are good’
(B) ‘dar tok pa’ means ‘good and bad’
(C) ‘tim na tok’ means 'they are bad’
In that language, which word stands for 'they' ?

Option:
A. na
B. tok
C. tim
D. pit
Answer: C . tim

Justification:

In the first and third statements, the common word is 'na' and the common word is 'are'.
So, 'na' means 'are'.
In the second and third statements, the common code word is 'tok' and the common word is 'bad'.
So, 'tok' means 'bad'.
Thus, in the third statements, 'tim' stands for 'they'.
