Ques:- Sushil got thrice as many marks in English as in Science. His total marks in English, Science and Maths are 162. If the ratio of his marks in English and Maths is 3:5, find his marks in Science?

Marks in thrice in english as in science
so if science marks is x
then english marks = 3x
lets maths marks = y
ratio of english and maths marks is
3x/y = 3/5
=> y = 5x

and total marks = 162
3x + x + 5x = 162

Ques:- If VICTORY is coded as YLFWRUB, how can SUCCESS be coded ?

The answer for this question is very simple: it is called Ceaser Cipher.
It consists of replacing a character by another located in (current character position + (key-1)), where key = how many positions you want to skip.
For Example: VICTORY -> YLFWRUB with the key = 3.
Then SUCCESS -> QXFFHQQ

Note: it should work like a circle(Z+1 = A).
