Solutions:
(1 – 5):
In the code number represents (No. of letters in the word + Reverse alphabet order of the last letter)
Symbol is different for different letters of the first word as J=@, M=%, R=#, B=\$
Letter represents the last letter in the word
1. D) R – #
No of letters – 3 + (Reverse Alphabet order of N = 13) = 16
Last letter – N
2. A) R – #
Last letter – E
No of letters – 4+(Reverse Alphabet order of E = 22) = 26
3. A) M – %
Last letter – R
No of letters – 4+(Reverse Alphabet order of K = 16) = 20
4. E)
5. D)
(6 – 10):
