Code Breaking!!

Postby DeathStarrX » April 12th, 2008, 1:27 pm

I was bored and decided to look for some word codes to decipher. So I looked up some..

I ran into one I couldn't solve, so I'm going to see if anyone here can get it. Good Luck!

These words follow a logical progression:
ABROAD
BLONDE
LANCER
ACCORD
CHORDS

Which of these could come next?
HARASS
HERPES
OLDISH
MARKER

Edit: I solved it after looking for a little bit more .. but go ahead and solve it if you please and I'll post some more for fun.

For the frist one I just see that the next word has as beginning letter the second letter of the word before.

But I just had a working session for 5 hours, so my brain is not working very fast.

I suppose it is harass, as current word has 1st, 3rd and 5th letters as the previous ones 2nd, 4th and 6th

Harass is correct! Now for a little bit harder one.

These words follow a logical progression:
TYPICAL
RAKE
LAMP
RUBBING
ON
LOW
RASPING

Which of these could come next?
DOUSE
ARBOR
BED
INANE

i doubt this is right but it is all i can think of


TYPICAL  the C moves back 2 spaces and becomes the A in Rake                                           
RAKE      the K moves forward 1 space becomes the L in LAMP
LAMP      the P moves back 2 spaces becomes N in Rubbing
RUBBING  the M moves up 1 space and becomes N in On
ON          the N back 2 spaces and becomes L in Low
LOW        the O moves up a space to become P in Rasping
RASPING    and finally the P moves back 2 spaces to become the N in INANE
INANE

its a constant pattern of back 2 spaces and up 1 and only works with inane. It was the best i can do

It sounds logical but what I'm not seeing is you pattern of deciding which letting to change. Also..

What's M is moving? There's not M in rubbing. It looks like you took it from Lamp. It was a good attempt, but I don't think it's right.

Ok, that might work, but I don't see what pattern you're following for which letter replaces which letter in the next. It seems relatively random.

It might be the right answer, but it's probably not the correct solution since it's not definitive.

Can we get a hint to figure the logic for the last one out?
