 16. If LINGER is 123456 and FORCE is 56789, then FIERCE is 345667 456678 345677 556789 opt 5 ANSWER : 456678 Explanation : . Letters R, E are common to LINGER and FORCE, and numbers 6 and 5 are common to their respective coding. Therefore, 5 and 6 will stand for RE but not respectively. Now, since word FIERCE has double E, therefore, either of 5 and 6 will appear twice in its coding. Besides, coding of FIERCE will have two numbers from coding of FORCE for letters F and C, and one number from coding of LINGER for letter I. Hence, coding of FIERCE will be 456678.
