Solutions:
(1 – 5):
Logic:
1) 1st element represents position of first letter of word in modified English alphabet.
2) 2nd element is a symbol that represents number of letter in word.
3) 3rdelement is a letter which represents the last letter of word.
Example: (1 → T position of first letter in modified English alphabet.
@ → 3 letter word
E → the last letter of the word)
Hence, “The” is coded as “1@E”
Symbols: number of letters:
! -> 2; @ -> 3; \$ -> 4; # -> 5; % -> 6; ^ -> 7; & -> 8; * -> 9
