    "demand and supply economics"=="mo ta pa ka"
    "money makes only part"=="zi la ne ki"
    "demand makes supply economics"=="zi mo ka ta"
    the question is what is the code for "work and money"
    answer =="pa la tu"
    but how????????pls explain me

    1. according to your question,
      economics-- ka, money-- la, makes-- zi, demand supply-- mo ta, and-- pa.
      work and money-- pa la tu. ( "work" code is not given in the above references. ... "tu" is also not present ). so "work"-- "tu".
      hope you understand...

    + 2 nominated

    GROSS TOTAL =545 members


    2nd comment reasoning solution
    From 1st &2nd sentence ECONOMICS = KA
    Now, from 1 & 3
    MONEY = LA
    Also from 2 & 4

    Now no any term/word "WORK" came in the question
    The right and will be for WORK AND MONEY=
    PA LA TU

    As pa = and,la=money,tu didn't come in question as well as WORK.

    That's all.
