• Question 7

In some code, letters, a, b, c, d and e represent numbers 2, 4, 5, 6 and 10. However, we don’t know which letter represent which number.

Consider the following relationships:

ii. b – d = d

iii. e + a = b

(1) b = 4, d = 2

(2) a = 4, e = 6

(3) b = 6, e = 2

(4) a = 4, c = 6   (CAT 2001)
