# Logical Reasoning - Letter and Symbol Series - Discussion

### Discussion :: Letter and Symbol Series - Type 1 (Q.No.1)

In these series, you will be looking at both the letter pattern and the number pattern. Fill the blank in the middle of the series or end of the series.

SCD, TEF, UGH, ____, WKL

 [A]. CMN [B]. UJI [C]. VIJ [D]. IJT

Explanation:

There are two alphabetical series here. The first series is with the first letters only: STUVW. The second series involves the remaining letters: CD, EF, GH, IJ, KL.

 Jayanta Bhattacharya said: (Feb 5, 2011) Hi All, I need a solution of this problem. If RAMANUJ=32 & MANOHAR=36 then what is the value of AGGARWAL ?. Please send me answer of this question its very urgent.

 Deepika said: (May 7, 2011) I Thougt Answer is -16 Becoz Jayanth Mentioned the above values 32 to RAMANUJ is correct,but Second value for MANOHAR is -36 not a +36. logic is simple. Write all alphabetics with Numbers like A to Z with respect to 1 to 26 . so for A is equal to 1 anb B is equal to 2and Z is equal to 26 so we do like this method +R-M+A-N+U-J(18-1+13-1+14-21+10)=32 Second we do opposite of manohar -M+A-N+O-H+A-R(-13+1-14+15-8+1-18)=-36 Finally in this type we find the answer of AGGARWAL IS opposite of of MANOHAR . i got the answer -16

 Vandna said: (Jul 31, 2011) I thought -16 is correct answer as per following solution:_ +A-G+G-A+R-W+A-L (1-7+7-1+18-23+1-12)= 19-35 = -16

 Pooja Sawant said: (Aug 4, 2011) I have 1 doubt. How can we come to know whether to take "+" sign first or "-" sign. Please explain it in detail.

 Shakthi said: (Aug 17, 2011) How can we find d "+" and "-" symbol in order?

 Manoranjan said: (Aug 23, 2011) How you have taken the + & - values for letters?

 Suji said: (Sep 16, 2011) How can we identify + and - symbols?

 Subhash said: (Sep 19, 2011) Ramanuj=32=+18-1+13-1+14-21+10 Manohar=36=13-1+14-15+8-1+18 Therefore AGGARWAL=1-7+7+1-18+23-1+12=18

 Naveen said: (Sep 24, 2011) Some people have difficult how to take + and - signs, Don't worry just do not consider repeating word is it is even, If odd just take - sign with its value. (Raamu Only take Rmu, If Raamanuj i.e, 3as which is odd so -1(where 1 is a no).... Ex: Ramanuj here letter 'a' is evenly repeated twice so neglect Ex: Aggarwal here take only rwal bur - sign to a i.e., '-a' rest all +

 Vaibhav said: (Feb 5, 2012) According 2 me answer should be +-16, as arthimatic operators have both values.

 Deepak said: (May 6, 2012) What is the difference between verble and non verble reasonig?

 Yash Maurya said: (Aug 27, 2012) Hi All, This Ques solve with numerical series..example. S C D, T E F, U G H, ____, W K L 19 3 4 20 5 6 21 7 8 22 9 10 23 11 12 so Ans is-VIJ

 Yash said: (Sep 12, 2013) Hi guys, Don't confuse just observe the question then you get its in order like C.D E.F G.H. likewise.

 Habibulla said: (Dec 14, 2013) Ramanuj = 32 = +18-1+13-1+14-21+10. Manohar = 36 = 13-1+14-15+8-1+18. Therefore, AGGARWAL = 1-7+7+1-18+23-1+12 = 18.

 Alick said: (Jul 5, 2014) Don't understand - & + symbols.

 Revathi said: (Jul 19, 2014) Hi please tell me answer to this. In certain code language GOVERNMENT is written as PIFXOTFEOUP. How will the word SHORTAGE be written in that language ?

 Mohan Chandra said: (May 21, 2015) Hi friends: RAMANUJ = (R+M+N+J)-(A+A+U) = 55-23 = 32. MANOHAR = (M+N+H+R)-(A+O+A) = 53-17 = 36. AGGARWAL = (A+G+R+A)-(G+A+W+L) = -16.

 Newaj Choudhury said: (Sep 8, 2015) I did not understood.

 Rakhi said: (Oct 2, 2015) Hi please tell me answer to this.

 Jyo said: (Oct 9, 2015) It is a simple question.

 Naqueeb said: (Nov 7, 2015) Correct answer is 64. Can someone explain this?

 Prashant T said: (May 17, 2016) RAMANUJ = (18 + 13 + 14 + 10) - (1 + 1 + 21) = 32. MANOHAR=(13 + 14 + 8 + 18) - (1 + 15 + 1) = 36. AGGARWAL=(7 + 7 + 18 + 23 + 12) - (1 + 1 + 1) = 64. Consonant is getting minus from vowels.

 Kavya said: (Nov 16, 2016) Guys, even I don't understand how to take '+', & '-' signs can you please explain properly?

 Sharanya said: (Dec 23, 2016) Excellent, Thanks for all your solution.

 Kunal Sonar said: (Jan 5, 2017) If, W 161 G U 357 Q R ? M N 266 S What is the answer on the question mark?

 Sahitya said: (Mar 13, 2017) Study:1::verbal:? Answer is 36 but how?

 Abdul Masud said: (May 8, 2017) Excellent. Both of your answer & logic is correct. Thanks @Prashant T.

 Ajd said: (Sep 19, 2017) @Revathi. Given, GOVERNMENT= PIFXOTFOUP Explanation: Form a group of two letters GO VE RN ME NT In each group +1 place value with 1st letter of the group and +2 place value with 2nd letter of the group and after that interchange the final two letters. Therefore, in this methodology SHORTAGE= IUSQBVFI.

 Ruksana said: (Sep 28, 2017) @Kunal. W value is 23 and g is 7, 23*7 is 161 then r is 18, M is 13 ans is 234 R234M.

 Sushmitha said: (Apr 28, 2018) Hi, I am not getting this. Please explain this in detail.

 Ambrish said: (Dec 17, 2018) Actually, the answer is VIG. SCD, TEF, UGH, VIG, WKL. S+1=T C+2=E D+2=F. T+1=U E+2=G F+2=H. U+1=V G+2=I H+2=G. V+1=W I+2=K G+2=L.

 Karuna said: (Nov 20, 2019) Hi, I am not getting this. Please, will you explain?

 Vignesh said: (Nov 21, 2019) Given, GOVERNMENT = PIFXOTFOUP. Explanation: Form a group of two letters. GO VE RN ME NT In each group +1 place value with 1st letter of the group and +2 place value with 2nd letter of the group and after that interchange the final two letters. Therefore, in this methodology SHORTAGE = IUSQBVFI. I did get you to explain it again.
