Logical Reasoning - Artificial Language - Discussion

Discussion :: Artificial Language - Type 1 (Q.No.3)

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.


Here are some words translated from an artificial language.
agnoscrenia means poisonous spider
delanocrenia means poisonous snake
agnosdeery means brown spider
Which word could mean "black widow spider"?

[A]. deeryclostagnos
[B]. agnosdelano
[C]. agnosvitriblunin
[D]. trymuttiagnos

Answer: Option C


In this language, the noun appears first and the adjectives follow. Since agnos means spider and should appear first, choices a and d can be ruled out. Choice b can be ruled out because delano means snake.

I am not understand the above concept.

nothing much yaar:

code has AGNO as first word but its decoded word is SPIDER which is at last place so the question is BLACK WIDOW SPIDER

ans: eliminate 1st option caz deery mens brown not black,
eliminate 2nd cazagno means poisonous.
if we see 3rd option agno is at first place so SPIDER must be in the last place hence 3rd is correct answer

Interesting to solve. Thank you all for explaining the method.

Vinit Mishra said: (Aug 7, 2016)  
How can we predict that in the artificial language noun appears first followed by an adjective?

Is there any rule?

Manya said: (Jan 31, 2017)  
Not understanding, is there any particular way to find it out?

In the above-mentioned explanation, you are saying that 'noun' comes first then 'adjective' follows. But the reverse is true. So I think, the logic behind the problem will be different.

I don't understand this please explain it clearly.

Vijayanta Dhawas said: (Jun 26, 2018)  
Not understand this question because there is no one word related with black and widow.

Agnos means spider.

Crenia means poisonous.

AGNOS= Spider
CRENIA= Poisonous
Delano= snake
Deery= Brown.

Option A eliminated because DEERY means BROWN
Option B eliminated because DELANO means SNAKE
Option D eliminated because "In Artificial Lang AGNOS is in the last place, it should be in 1st place.
Ans is Option C because AGNOS should be on 1st place according to the pattern.
