# Coding & Decoding solved questions

This post is all about coding & decoding problems which is an important part of non verbal ability syllabus. In this chapter, the questions involve finding the relations between the different words/parameter and then finding the suitable math for the question asked.

You can easily find the solution of the problems by drawing flowchart or illustrations of different parameters. All the questions given below are fully solved and illustrations are drawn for your understanding. I hope after reading this post, you will able to solve questions on your own.

Solution– Here we first write the sequence of all given things

here we have to find through which child can write
so it is pencil and pencil represents sharpener

I hope you now have understood the concept of coding and decoding. Understand that these questions are extremely important as they are frequently asked in logical reasoning exams like GRE, GMAT, Math Olympiad, CAT, MAT, CMAT, NMAT, SNAP, SSC, SSC-CGL, SSC-CHSL, Banking exams, SBI PO, SBI clerk, IBPS, NDA, AFCAT, RRB etc.
