Answers with Detailed Solutions - Tap to show
Every code consists of three parts- a symbol , a number , an alphabet
The symbol corresponds to the first alphabet of every word
The number is the square of the number of alphabets in the word
The alphabet is the first alphabet of the word.
By elimination we get
F= @
A= +
W= $
G= !

So the code for fragrance= @81f ( 81=9^2 which is the number of alphabets in the word)
And hence the codes and the respective words are :
Basils       fragrance        sacred      around
#36b        @81f                 ^36s         +36a

Australia        tangerine       wolf
+81a                 %81t              $16w

Quetta      basket       catholic    fantasy
&36q          #36b           *64c        @49f

Sound        task         queen
^25s          %16t          &25q

Church        fool           globe
*36c             @16f         !25g
  1. e
  2. a
  3. d
