(1 – 5):
 Floor Child Class 8 B 3 7 E 5 6 D 10 5 G 3 4 A 6 3 F 10 2 C 5 1 H 6
1. B)   2. E)   3. A)   4. C)   5. D)
(6 – 10):
In 2nd and 4th code there are 2 codes with % and \$ respectively. And also there are 2 words with 6 and 4 letters in these respectively. So by this it can be found that symbols are used for no. of letters
Symbols for number of letters:
4 – \$, 5 – #, 6 – %, 7 – @
For letters: Reverse in English Alphabet
For numbers – see that each lines of code contains 1 code with 5 digit – K5@, V5%, H5\$, T5\$ . So find relation between words to find the pattern
There is one word in each line having ‘e’ letter at last of word. and e is 5. Check for others too if it works. So you get is that the last digits of number of last letter are added to obtain number in coding.
So Puzzles – P -> K, S = 19, 1+9=10 =1+0 = 1 and 7 letters in word so @
So Puzzles – K1@
6. C)   7. D)   8. E)   9. B)   10. A)
