# Q. What is the missing term in the following?

ACPQ : BESU:: MNGI: @

(a) NPJL

(b) NOJM

(c) NPIL

(d) NPJM

Correct Answer: (d) NPJM

#### Question from UPSC Prelims 2020 CSAT Paper

**Explanation : **

## ACPQ : BESU

The first term ACPQ : BESU, A is shifted by 1 position to become B, C is shifted by 2 positions to become E, P is shifted by 3 positions to become S and Q is shifted by 4 positions to become U.

Applying this logic to the third term (MNGI), we can find the missing term by shifting each letter accordingly. M is shifted by 1 position to become N, N is shifted by 2 positions to become P, G is shifted by 3 positions to become J and I is shifted by 4 positions to become M.

So the missing term is NPJM.
