Solution

The correct option is A

4 --- 12--- 14 --- 26 --- 13


Clearly, each letter is coded by the numeral obtained by subtracting from 27, numeral denoting the position of the letter in the English alphabet. W, O, M, A, N are 23rd, 15th, 13th, 1st and 14th letters. So, their codes are (27 - 23), (27 - 15), (27 – 13), (27 -- 1), (27 - 14) i.e., 4, 12, 14, 26, 13 respectively.
