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 language, 'Mink Yang Pe' means 'Fruits are ripe';
'Pe Lao May Mink' means 'Oranges are not ripe' and
'May Pe Nue Mink' means 'Mangoes are not ripe'.
Which word in that language means 'Mangoes' ?

A. May
B. Pe
C. Nue
D. Mink
Answer: C . Nue


In the second and third statements, the common code words are 'Pe','Mink' and 'May' and
the common words are 'are', 'not' and 'ripe'.
So, in the third statement, 'Nue' stands for 'mangoes'.
