Direction (Q. 1 - 5) : Study the following information carefully and answer t h e given questions based on it.
The English alphabet is categorised into five groups, each starting with a vowel and encompassing the immediately following consonants in the group. Thus, group one consists of A, B, C and D; group two consists of E, F, G and H; group three consists of I, J, K, L, M a n d N ; group four consists of O, P, Q, R, S and T; and the remaining letters make group five.
These groups are assigned values as 10 for each letter of first group, 20 for each letter of second group, 30 for each letter of third group, 40 for each letter of fourth group and 50 for each letter of group five.
When used to form words, the value of each letter should be added up to compute the value of the word. If the word has letters only from the same group the value of the word would be the value of sum of letters.
However, if the letters in a word are from different groups, the value of the first letter of the word and any other letter of that group will be the same as that of its individual letter value of its group, but that of a letter from another group will be 'double' as much as the value of each letter of its group.
If we have to find the value of MANGO; its first letter is M (from third group); among A, N, G and O, the letter N is also from third group. Hence value of M + N = 30 + 30 = 60
Now A, G and O belong to the first, second and fourth group respectively. Hence value of A + G + O = double the of value of A+ double the of value of G + double the of value of 0 = 2 x 10 + 2 x 2 0 + 2x40=140.
Hence, total value = 140 + 60 = 200.
