Hi SteveDH,

I agree with Loulou (great name!):

This is the way I would have approahed it.

Treat each letter separately, the first

A relates to Z

The second

C relates to X

To me there is an obvious relationship:

A -> Z
B -> Y
C -> X
D -> W
E -> V
F -> U
G -> T
H -> S
I -> R
J -> Q
K -> P
L -> O
M -> N

This is half way, so the rest will be the inverse i.e N -> M, O -> P etc

Going back to the question for VT , V relates to E and T relates to G.

So I agree with Loulou.

This is one of those "working in from the ends" of the alphabet questions. Patcia has included advice on hem before. Just count in the appropriate number of letters from each end of the alphabet, so a>z; b>y; c>x; d>w; e>v etc, etc.

Thanks, actually I was looking at the wrong question and the anser is GE, and
I should have spotted that as I've been through a load of those before...dur, seems I'd managed to forget about that option.
anyway thanks for putting me straight

Steve
