Default The last question in the GSA paper today!

So the last question was to decode the LANDMINE if it is coded as PYRBOGRC. So doing some google search, I found the source. Now apparently the code there is PYRBQGRC, not the one given in the exam.

Apparently I couldn't post the link here but if you google: "In a certain code language LANDMINE is written", with the quotation marks included, it is the first link. leads to a book.

So basically it was impossible to solve this question, as these codes follow a specific pattern which one has to decode. The method for this question is given a few pages down the link if you look at it. There was no way to solve this question! HOW IS THIS FAIR! IT WAS FOR 5 FREAKIN marks!!!!! Not to mention the spelling mistakes in the mcqs. Seriously. Very disappointed.

Question was totally easy. There was pattern of plus 4 and minus 2 with each alternative alphabet respectively. There was one mistake which was corrected by invigilating staff.
You had to add four alphabets in 1,3,5 & 7 alphabet and subtract 2 from 2,4,6 & 8 alphabet. It was straight forward.

PRYBQGRC
Fifth alphabet was Q not O. It was corrected in my centre. It effected the sequence as well as the answer.

If you have identified the pattern and was aware about the mistake, they can give you marks but due to mistake if pattern was not identified, people will lose marks.
