Explanation:

Alphabets and their positions

 A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

256 is square of 16. 16 means 1 and 6. 1=Position of A ; 6 = Position of F. So we get 256AF
Also, 256 is square of 16 and 16 is square of 4. 4= Position of D
Using same rule,
625 is square of 25 i.e. 2 and 5. 2=Position of B ; 5=Position of E
? will be 25E.
Because 625 is square of 25 and 25 is square of 5. 5 = Position of E
