# If blue is coded as 118 then colour is coded as? [closed]

I couldn't find the exact solution for the following "Coding - Decoding" problem that I found in some exam paper. The question is as follows:

If blue is coded as 118 then colour is coded as?

• ...then colour is coded as: number. Easy ;D – Avigrail Aug 6 '15 at 9:17

• I think @Avigrail has got it and it's a crappy question :-) – Rand al'Thor Aug 6 '15 at 10:54
• The question is very vague but I attempted to answer it as best as possible. – warspyking Aug 6 '15 at 11:38

Colour is coded as

Number

Or maybe

Integer

Or possibly even

Whole Number

Why:

Colour is a generalized version of a specific colour, for example blue. So if blue is to 118, then we must generalize 118. Giving us "Number", "Integer", or "Whole Number"
