## Learn how to solve Coding and Decoding based questions

Letter Coding is one of the important topics from exams point of view as 5 questions are expected in the preliminary examination of all clerical level exams. These questions are not as difficult as it looks after reading the questions. We have to simply remember the positions of the alphabets & left-right combinations.

Let us look at these types of questions:

W M 5 B Y 2 \$ O*Z A 1 P 3 X M N 9 K 6 L 4 ~ E 7 H

1. Which of the following Symbol / Letter / Number is exactly in the middle between the tenth element from the right and fifth element from the left end?

(a) A               (b) B                    (c) 1                  (d) *                     (e) None of these

1. W5Y should come in place of the question mark as it follows the order of moving right and leaving one element & considering the other.

We have taken the left end element W, then left one element & considered the other i.e, 5 & in a similar way, we will follow this pattern.

1. The eleventh element to the right of the second element from the left end is P & hence None of these is the correct answer.

1. If we right both the halves of the above sequence in reverse order, then we will get the following sequence as follows

P1AZ*O\$2YB5MWH7E~4L6K9NMX3

The sixth element to the right of the sixteenth element from the right end is ~ & hence b is the correct answer.
