CODING & DE-CODING

Directions (1-5): In each question below is given a group letters followed b four combination of symbols and digits numbered A, B, C and D. you have to find out which of the combinations correctly represents the group of letters based on the following codes and conditions and mark the number of that combination as the answer. If none of the four combinations correctly represents the group of letters, mark 5 i.e. ‘None of these’ as the answer.

 Letter L K E G S J A D N F I Q T U R Digital/ Symbol Code 4 2 © + 8 % 5 9 7 \$ ¹ 3 1 @ 6

CONDITIONS:
1.       If the first letter is a vowel and the last letter a consonant, both are to be coded as the code for vowel.
2.       If the first letter is consonant and the last letter a vowel, codes for these two are to be interchanged.
3.       If both the first and the last letters are consonants both are to be coded as the code for the last letter.
Now based on the above, find out the coded form of the letter groups given in each question.
