Explanation
Directions(1-5):

Here is school bus stop → sa kin ha tip la              …… (i)
He comes from school → nit tip pi sit                     …….(ii)
Bus comes here late → sit la tin sa                        …… (iii)
School is far from here → ha nit la tip fa                ……(iv)
From (i), (ii) and (iv), school → tip                        ……. (v)
From (i), (iii) and (iv) here → la                             ……(vi)
From (i), (iii) and (vi), bus → sa                            …… (vii)
From (i), (iv), (v) and (vi), is → ha                         ….. (viii)
From (i), (v), (vi), (vii) and (viii), stop → kin           …… (ix)
From, (ii) and (iii), comes → sit                             ……. (x)
From (ii), (iv) and (v), from → nit                           …….. (xi)
From (ii), (v), (x) and (xi), he → pi                         ……. (xii)
From (iii), (vi), (vii) and (x), late → tin                   ……… (xiii)
From (iv), (v), (vi), (viii) and (xi), far → fa             …….. (xiv)

8. Interchanging the digits, we get the following rearrangement:
36478912
Clearly, 8 is the fourth digit from the right end.

9. Fish live in water. But here ‘Mountain’ means ‘Water’.
Hence, ‘mountain’.

10. nik ka pa=who are you………….(i)
Ka na tad a =you may come here……. (ii)
Ho ta sa =come and go………….(iii)
From (i) and (ii), ka=you.
Eliminating this from (i),we get
Nik pa=who are, Hence nik means ‘who’ or ‘are’.
