1. A)   2. B)   3. A)   4. C)   5. D)
(6 – 10): Each of the symbols in the code represents the number of letters in its corresponding word.
 No. of letters Symbol 4 ? 5 / 6 \ 8 % 9 !
For example, number of letters in ‘Rich’ are 4. Hence, the symbol is ‘?’.
The second letter in the code can be obtained by multiplying the numerical position of last letter of the word (of which we want to find the code of) by 2. And if the value obtained is less than or equal to 26 then the code would the alphabet whose numerical position in the alphabetical series is same as the value obtained. But if the obtained value is more than 26 then firstly we will subtract the value by 26 and after we will use the above operation.
For example, last letter in the ‘Rich’ is ‘H’ the numerical position of ‘H’ is 8 and if we multiply 8 by 2 we get 16 which is less than 26. Now, we know that the numerical position of ‘P’ in alphabetical series is 16. Hence, the letter is ‘P’.
The last letter of each code denotes the third letter from right end of its corresponding word.
For example, the third letter from left end in ‘Rich’ is ‘I’. Hence, the letter is ‘I’.
