Here are some words translated from an artificial language.

pixngorbl means ceiling fan
arthtusl means tile roof
Which word could mean "ceiling tile"?

[A]. gorbltusl
[B]. flurgorbl
[C]. arthflur

Gorbl means fan; flur means belt; pixn means ceiling; arth means tile; and tusl means roof. Therefore, pixnarth is the correct choice.

Hi friend, I is quite simple, usually we match first artificial word with first word consider to be 1 and in question it is arranged as well the same.

Gorbl - fan.

Flur - belt.

Pixn - ceiling.

We can only make these 3 out so now we look at the options.

We get, only option D satisfying the first half.

(Gorblflur means fan belt. Pixngorbl means ceiling fan. Arthtusl means tile roof).

Gorbl+Flur = Fan+Belt.

Pixn+Gorbl = Ceiling+Fan.

Arth+Tusl = Tile+Roof.

According to above equations: Pixn = Ceiling & Arth = Tile.

So the answer of "ceiling tile" = Pixnarth(Pixn+arth).

But how can you decided Gorbl means fan? is there any specific method to decide this?

Raj said: (Jul 5, 2016)  
It is just a comparison between imaginary words or so-called artificial language.

Nothing complex and special.

Why gorbl+flur?
Why not Gorblf+Lur?
Why not Gor+Blflur?
Similarly, why not any other combinations?
