1 Answer 1


Is it


The answer is obtained by superimposing the alphabet over the QWERTY key board layout order so A=Q, B=W, C=E D=R and then converting from the letter string to the answer by treating its letters as part of the QWERTY order and then find its counterpart in the Alphabetical order. So D=M, T=E, Q=A and so on.
