Hello,

Could anyone help me out here?


IPS Pack A, Type C - Question 34

If the code for REPLAY is TDRKCX
what does QQCMEF mean?



We worked out the pattern is going +2 -1 +2 -1 +2 -1
Thus, we need to worked out the meaning backwards: -2 +1 -2 +1 -2 +1

And so we got this answer:
Q -2 = O
Q +1 = R
C -2 = A
M +1 = N
E -2 = C
F +1 = G

The answer is meant to be ORANGE - what am I missing?

Much appreciated!

I make the answer ORANGE too, it looks as if IPS went a bit wrong when creating the code for the last 2 letters. :roll:

Its a known mistake from IPS, perhaps in their next print run they could amend the error.

Thanks a lot - quite often I think the publishers MUST have made an error only to find ds1 telling me the correct answer.

:shock:
