How can we obtain the code for E & A ? It is common to all the three statements.

Actually how can we obtain the code for E and A? So answer is E.
Thrilok said: 3 years ago
Answer is A because by I answer II we get $@%#.
Vid said: 2 years ago
The right Answer is E.
Post your comments here:
Observing I, II and III, we find that similar letters have similar code symbols at the corresponding places in the code. So, this is direct-coding.
Thus, to find the code for DATE, we need the code for D which can be obtained from I only (i.e. $.) and the codes for A, T and E which can be obtained either from II or III (@, # and % respectively).
