In a coding language, Mumbai is written as 10110153, Pune is written as 121114.Then how would the word Banglore be written? 1) 1511751221164 2) 1511651021144 3) 15115592144 4) 15118592112

comparing last 3 letters and numbers in Mumbai b is 1 and a is 5 (and i is 3) (which seems to be correct seeing the options) n could be 11

representation should be unique if U=1 then b can't be 1 :O

just a thought, why does the representation needs to be unique?? there could be a function which gives number of letters in the spelling a word.. then 1 = one =3, 2 = two = 3, ... and so on... multiple representations...

yeah it should be fine as long as it is invertible

well every thing is possible with such question, but mainly in crypt a letter could be represented in at least one way, and not a code could represent more than a letter , just saying

at least from options this is what happens xD (even though i hate to say it) M u m b a i 10 1 10 1 5 3 P u n e 12 1 11 4

no 2.) is correct By the way the correct spelling of Banglore is "bangalore" B A N G A L O R E 1 5 11 $$\color{red}{6}$$ 5 102114 4 Since A is used 5 G must assign 6

"G must assign 6" why?? could be anything

i'll try something else

OpenStudy (mathmath333):

oh it should be 1.) then

OpenStudy (mathmath333):

Do u agree that only option 1.) and 2.) should be correct

OpenStudy (anonymous):

it also could be c :P we don't know if 5 would represent something other than b as i assumed 1 could or w.e

hartnn (hartnn):

only option 4 is out.

other than a*

in option b.) 2) 1511651021144 44 in the last represents 'ee' thus 2.) should be out leaving 1.)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Mumbai 10110153, Pune 121114 U could be 1,11,111 only

OpenStudy (mathmath333):

and option 3.) is also out as 3) 15115592144 It doesnt represent the $$\color{red}{a}$$ in the middle with 5 only one time 5 is repeated twice Bang$$\color{red}{a}$$lore

This looks like reasoning type question not strictly math involved

so we need to be in the cruel mind for whom wrote it depending on options instead of doing it mathematically lol

OpenStudy (mathmath333):

So I would go for 1.) the last verdict!
