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) 'pod na joc' means 'very bright boy';
(B) 'tam nu pod' means 'the boy comes';
(C) 'nu per ton' means 'keep the doll';
(D) 'joc ton su' means 'very good doll'.

Which of the following means 'bright' in the language ? 

Option:
A. joc
B. pod
C. ton
D. na
E. None of these

In statements (A) and (D), the common code word is 'joc' and the common word is 'very'.
So, 'joc' stands for 'very'.
