## SSC Reasoning: MATRIX Concept with Sample Question and Solution

MATRIX Concept
In this type of questions, two matrices of letters and numbers are given in which each letters can be represented by a set of two numbers. The first number(from left) indicates the row number while the second number indicates the column number. You are required to identify the code for the given word or a group of letters on the basis of two matrices given.

Now consider the following examples which were asked in the previous exams:

Direction(1-2): In the following questions given below are two matrices of twenty five cells each containing two classes of letters from the alphabet. The columns and rows of matrix 1 are numbered from 0 to 4 and that of matrix 2 from 5 to 9. A letter from these matrices can be represented first by its row number and next by its column number. For example, R can be represented by 02, 31. In each of the following questions identify one set of number pairs out of (1), (2), (3), (4) which represents the given word:

MATRIX - I
 0 1 2 3 4 0 E S R U N 1 R N S E U 2 U E N R S 3 S R U N E 4 N U E S R

MATRIX - II
