Answers & Solutions – Tap to show
Every  code consists of two parts – an alphabet and a
mathematical expression.
The alphabet is the third next letter of
the first alphabet ( in alphabet series) 
of the word
For example for December, first letter of
the word=d. Its third next letter in the alphabet series =g.
Hence first part of the code for December
is  “g”
The mathematical expression is the number
of alphabets in the word
For Ex- December has 8 words hence any
mathematical expression leaving answer =8 will b the 2nd part of the
code. Here we have the code  (24-8)=16-8=8
The first part of the code is fixed for
every alphabet, but the second part can be any expression which gives the
number of alphabets in the word.
Hence , the words along with their
respective codes are :
December       awkward         winner       
g(24-8)                d(32-2)               z(42-10)         i(32-2)    
Falsehood         tortoise         racist         enthusiasm
  i(52-42)             w(24-8)         u(42-10)
drought       culture        Nazism
g(32-2)         f(32-2)          q(42-10)
Amazing        tangible         prophet        xenon
d(32-2)             w(24-8)        s(32-2)           a(62-31)    
Wolfram        excitement          zeal 
  z(32-2)               h(52-15)         c(72-45)
