You will obtain four sets as above.Now consider the word 'find'. You can see the word 'find' in set 1 and set 3. You can also see the word 'good' is common to set 1 and set 3.If there are more than one common word in two set you cannot reach a conclusion.Now go for next word 'a'.The word 'a' is common to set 1 and set 4.There is only one common term between set 1 and set 4.Thus you can conclude that code of 'a' is 'co'. Draw a matching line connecting 'a' and 'co'. This will help you avoid confusion while making the right answer.From set 1 and set 2 you will get code of the word 'home' as 'rh'. Draw a matching line connecting the word and corresponding code.
