Letter to Letter Coding

In Letter to Letter coding, the letter in the word is replaced by other letter, according to a specific rule. we will have to get words from letters. Getting words from letters that we arrange as per a certain pattern or code is the topic of this section on Letter-letter coding.

Example : If in a certain language, TRIANGLE is coded SQHZMFKD, then which word would be coded as DWZLOKD?

  1. EXAMPLE
  2. DISMISS
  3. FIGMENT
  4. DISJOIN

Solution : EXAMPLE

T R I A N G L E
–1 –1 –1 –1 –1 –1 –1 –1
S Q H Z M F K D


Similarly;
 

D W Z L O K D
+1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1
E X A M P L E

Example : If ‘COUNSEL’ is to ‘BITIRAK’ so also ‘GUIDANCE’ is to

  1. FOHYZJBB
  2. HOHYBJBA
  3. FPHZZKAB
  4. FORHYZJBB

Solution : FOHYZJBB

C O U N S E L
–1 –6 –1 –5 –1 –4 –1
B I T I R A K


Similarly;
 

G U I D A N C E
–1 –6 –1 –5 –1 –4 –1 –3
F O H Y Z J B B

Example : In a certain code, FORGE is written as FPTJI. How is CULPRIT written in that code?

Solution : CVNSVNZ 

Clearly, the first letter in the word FORGE remains as it is and the second, third, fourth and fifth letters are respectively moved one, two, three and four steps forward to obtain the corresponding letters of the code.

Applying the same rule to the letters of the word CULPRIT, C will( remain unchanged, U will be coded as V, L as N, P as S, R as V, I as N and T as Z. Thus, the code becomes CVNSVNZ.
