    $\begingroup$ Hi Abdul, and welcome to Puzzling :) Where is this puzzle from, please? All puzzles from elsewhere need to have their source accredited or they may end up being closed. Also, do you have any ideas about this puzzle yourself? What have you tried so far? This would be useful for us to know... Thanks! $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Definitely cool! I can't figure out if the wingdings play a part in the logic of solving it, or if they are just placeholders? $\endgroup$
