Discussion :: Artificial Language - Type 1 (Q.No.9)

First, you will be given a list of three "nonsense" words and their English word meanings. The question(s) that follow will ask you to reverse the process and translate an English word into the artificial language.

9. 

Here are some words translated from an artificial language.
lelibroon means yellow hat
plekafroti means flower garden
frotimix means garden salad
Which word could mean "yellow flower"?

[A]. lelifroti
[B]. lelipleka
[C]. plekabroon
[D]. frotibroon

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Leli means yellow; broon means hat; pleka means flower; froti means garden; mix means salad. Therefore, lelipleka means yellow flower.

I agree pleka means flower; but anyone of the two words leli or broon can mean either of the yellow or hat. also words are kept in order of their appearance in the strange language e.g. froti means garden then froti and garden both are first words in sentences of both languages. Hence the correct answer shud be, following the logic given above, C i.e plekabroon.

Does "butterfly" mean "a fly with butter"?

Varshini said: (Jul 17, 2016)  
I don't know how the answer is lelipleka. It can also be plekabroon.

Please, someone give a clear explanation.

But you are not given plekabroon. Besides, the engine chooses which one shall be?

Darshu said: (Mar 26, 2017)  
I have also chosen the plekabroon.

Can anyone give me the clarification?

Sayak said: (Mar 31, 2017)  
It can be option C also.

As far as, 2 & 3 are here, it seems "garden" in 2 is at last and in 3 it is at first place so garden can be deducted as "pleka" and out of all options for "yellow flower" is seen flower comes last so option B is correct.

Vishak said: (Jan 3, 2018)  
It is purely on the arrangement. As you can see that froti means garden and in both the sentences it is arranged. So accordingly pleka is a flower which comes at the end.
