Question: What is the code for 'or' in the code language?

Statements:

  1. 'nik sa te' means 'right or wrong', 'ro da nik' means 'he is right' and 'fe te ro' means 'that is wrong'.
  2. 'pa nik la' means 'that right man', 'sa ne pa' means 'this or that' and 'ne ka re' means 'tell this there'.

[A]. I alone is sufficient while II alone is not sufficient
[B]. II alone is sufficient while I alone is not sufficient
[C]. Either I or II is sufficient
[D]. Neither I nor II is sufficient
[E]. Both I and II are sufficient

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

I. In 'right or wrong' and 'he is right', the common word is 'right' and the common code word is 'nik'. So 'nik' means 'right'. In 'right or wrong' and 'that is wrong', the common word is 'wrong' and the common code word is 'te'. So, 'te' means 'wrong'.

Thus, in 'right or wrong', 'sa' is the code for 'or'. II. In 'that right man' and 'this or that', the common word is 'that' and the common code word is 'pa'. So, 'pa' means 'that'. In 'this or that' and 'tell this there', the common word is 'this' and the common code word is 'ne'. So, 'ne' means 'this'. Thus, in 'this or that', 'sa' is the code for 'or'.

How can statement II is sufficient?

Will anyone please explain this clearly?

I think the logic is missing.

Rakesh said: (Dec 7, 2017)  
It should be A.

There is no common word for 'this'.

Piyush said: (Mar 20, 2019)  
I think it should be Option D.

Prathipa said: (Jul 14, 2019)  
Option C is correct.

'nik sa te' = 'right or wrong'
'ro da nik' = 'he is right'
right=nik
'fe te ro' = 'that is wrong'
wrong=te

Or=sa ->found from statement 1

'Sa ne pa' = 'this or that'
'Ne ka re' = 'tell this there'
this = ne
'Pa nik la' = 'that right man'
Pa = that
Sa = or->found from statement 2.
