Solution

The correct option is A

15


We have : A = 1, B = 2, C , 3, ..... , Y = 25, Z = 26.

Clearly, the code for a word is obtained by dividing the sum of the individual values of its letters by the number of letters in the word.

Thus, HOTEL = (h + o + t + e + l)/5 = (8 + 15 + 20 + 5 + 12)/5 =​ 60/5 = 12.

So, WORD = (w + o + r + d)/4 = (23 + 15 + 18 + 4)/5 =​ 60/4 = 15.
