# Coding Decoding Logical Reasoning Questions and Answers Part 3

9. If % x ^ = 20 ; ^ x & = 32 ; % x & = 40 ; * x & = 72. Then what is the value of * ?

a. 8
b. 7
c. 9
d. 6

Explanation:

* cannot be 7 as 72 is not divisible by 7.
If * is 6, then & becomes 72/6 = 12.
But 40 is not divisible by 12.
Let * be 8, then & becomes 72/8 = 9
But 40 and 32 are not divisible by 9.
So * is 9. Answer is option c.

10. Given are some words decoded from artificial language - chikerkurrip means birdhouse; phyckurrip means bluebird and phycbrell means bluebell. Select the code for 'houseguest' in this artificial language.

a. bellchicker
b. chikerrdrop
c. chickerrphyc
d. dropchiker

Explanation:

From first and second term, we see that bird means kurrip.
So, chiker means house. Also, phyc means blue.
There is 'brell' but no 'bell' in code language.
'Chiker' has one 'r' in it. So option b cannot be answer.

11. 34 : 12 :: 59 : ?

So, 59 means 5 and 9. So, 5 x 9 = 45.
