Example 1: Which letter is the 22nd from left?
From the above rule, T’s numerical value is 20. So, 22nd letter is V.
Example 2: Which letter is fifteenth from right?
First need to convert the numerical value into from left i.e. from 27 – 15 = 12
By EJOTY rule, 12th letter is L.
Example: Consider words like Temple, Tent, Fort, House, Mahal and arrange them in alphabetical order.
Here, two words starts with letters TE which is common. So consider the third letter from both of them i.e. M and N. So, as M comes first Temple is written first.
Therefore, the correct order is Effort, House, Mahal, Temple and Tent.
Example : How many such pairs of letters are there in the word “PREAMBLE”, each of which has as many letters between them as in the English alphabet?
Consider the given word i.e. PREAMBLE
Step 2: Start from right to left.
Check from E i.e. E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L/ Here the letters are not matching.
Check from L i.e. L, M, N, O, P, Q, R. Not matching.
Check from B i.e. B,C, D, E. Matching.
Check from M i.e. M, N, O, P, Q. Not matching.
Check from A i.e. A, B, C, D. Not matching.
Check from E i.e. E, F, G. Not matching.
Check from R i.e. R, S. Not matching.
Check from P i.e. P. Not matching.
Therefore, from steps one and two, it is clear that there are two such pairs of letters matching in the given word as in the English dictionary.
Example : Number of letters skipped in between adjacent letters in the series is two. Which of CFILORU, LNQIJK, RPCAFG and WZCDMP series observes this rule?
Consider first word i.e. CFILORU.
Now, gap between C and F is two.
Similarly the gap between F and I, I and L, L and O, O and R, R and U is also two.
The gaps between letters in the remaining words is different and won’t satisfy the given rule.
Therefore, in letter series CFILORU, the number of letters skipped in between adjacent letters is two as shown above.
Example : Suppose the letters of the word ATEXR are numbered like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 respectively and what is the meaningful order of given word?
3, 4 , 2, 5, 1 is the correct order and the word is EXTRA.
Example : ‘Approximately’ be the word and let ‘apple’ be the new word formed from the given word. Here p is repeated twice. So it can used twice if not should not be used.
b) Given that
By observing the given question, it is the type of “right of – from right”.
Initially, find fourth from right i.e. ‘W’.
Again second to the right of ‘W’ is ‘Y’.
Therefore, ‘Y’ is the required letter.
2. Arrange the given words i.e. Abstract, Principle, Marry, Spring, and Frequent according to the dictionary.
3. How many such pairs of letters are there in the word “HISTORY”, each of which has as many letters between them as in the English alphabet?
Step 2: Start counting from right to left.
Count from Y i.e. Y, Z. Not matching.
Count from R i.e. R, S, T. Letters are matching.
Count from O i.e. O, P, Q, R, S. Letters are not matching.
Count from T i.e. T, U, V, W. Letters are not matching.
Count from S i.e. S, T, U. Letters are not matching.
Count from I i.e. I, J. Letters are not matching.
Count from H i.e. H. Letters are matching.
Therefore, three such pairs of letters are there in the word “HISTORY”, each of which has as many letters between them as in the English alphabet.
3. Number of letters skipped in between adjacent letters in the series increases by one. Which of GILPU, BFJNR, EHKNQ, DINSX series observes the given rule?
5. a) Re-arrange the letters like A, T, M, S, R if the numerical values for them are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and get the meaningful word?
b) Unscramble the letters in the given words i.e. PARRSWO, CAEPCOK, RAROPT, and ERDE. Find the odd one out.
b) Re-arranging the letters, the given words are: Sparrow, Peacock, Parrot and Deer.
Clearly, all the three words Sparrow, Peacock, Parrot are birds and Deer is an animal.
So, the odd one is Deer.
6. If THOSE, SCENT, PRONE and COTTON are formed from PHOTOSYNTHETIC. Then out of the given formed words find the word that cannot be formed from the letters in the word PHOTOSYNTHETIC?
