Are you sure these kinds of probleme dont come in CAT?? How do you know?

this wont be asked in CAT 2003 anyway...so take ur own time to solve the problems

see if the below given solution helps the thinking process

As SOTTISES contains eight letters and HOROSCOPE nine, we have S is smaller than 2. As S is not zero, we get S=1. As SOTTISES ends with 1, HOROSCOPE ends with 5. So E = 5 and we have the last three digits of S...

This is the answer,

S=1

I=2

O=3

T=4

E=5

H=7

C=8

R=9

P=0

But the sad part is I solved it in the conventional way...took almost half an hour.
