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 na som’ means ‘bring me water’
(B) ‘na ja tod’ means ‘water is life’
(C) ‘tub od pit’ means 'give me toy’
(D) ‘jo lin kot’ means ‘life and death’
Which of the following represents 'is' in that language ?

Option:
A. jo
B. na
C. tod
D. lin
E. None of these
Answer: C . tod

Justification:

In statements A and B, the common code word is 'na' and the common word is 'water'.
So, 'na' means 'water'.
In statements B and D, the common code word is 'jo' and the common word is 'life'.
So, 'jo' means 'life'.
Thus, in statements B, 'tod' represents 'is'.
