11 Plus Verbal Reasoning
Type N - Word Codes
With this type of question you are given four words and three codes. The words and codes are not in any particular order. Each of the codes matches one of the words - One word has no code.
You are required to either find a code for a given word or to find a word from a given code.
The codes are made up of numbers from 1 to 9 and each number is assigned to a letter. The number/letter allocation is totally random and does not link with the alphabet.
Lets look at an example:
TRIP PORT PAST TEST
2741 1462 1851
Begin by looking at the position of the numbers in the codes and see if there are any clues to help you. If there are any double letters in a word then look for double numbers in a code. If there are two identical numbers in a code group, look to see if there are identical letters in a word group in the same positions.
In this case the '1' appears in position 1 and 4, as does the letter 'T'. So the number 1 represents the letter T. Now we have matched a code to a word, we also know that 8 is E and 5 is S.
