    yes, taking the clues from the numbers given to the names of 4 others cars, we are expeceted to know

    the number that should be assigned to PEUGEOT.

    I havent got any clue as to how to do it. I tried giving a number for each of the
    aplhabets in sequence, but it doesnt work so far.....

    Why don't you post what you have when you get it. If you get stuck show us what you've got up to that point. We aren't going to do your work for you.
