The alphabet is included in each question to help you. You need to work out a different code for each question. Sometimes you will have to find a match for a word by moving forward a number of spaces in the alphabet, and sometimes by moving backward. Count how many spaces there are between a code and its decoded word, and then carry out that same operation on your question. If you completed Related Words 3, you will know that occasionally there will be two calculations to make, for different letters in a word, so watch out for that, and also for words with more than four letters! Finally, enjoy Related Words quiz number 4, the last in this series. Just click on the link to get more Verbal Reasoning quizzes when you are done.

The key to this code is to work out that each code letter is two spaces back in the alphabet. If L = J, then the code letter (J) has moved two spaces to the left of L, likewise if U = S then the code letter (S) is two spaces to the left of U. Working out the key allows us to work out any letter. If E is the code letter, then we know that it's two spaces to the left, so to get the answer, we must move two spaces to the right (G), likewise for M we must move two spaces to the right (O) and so on. Easy!
