Solution

SCOTLAND =12345678

LOAN = 1435

From the above two words we can take out the common letters those common letters must be represented by common digits

LOAN all these letters are common to both the words - SCOTLAND and LOAN

There fore = LOAN must stand for 1435 IN some order

Thus the remaining letters in the word SCOTLAND are SCTD which must stand for 2,6,7,8

Therefor "C" can be only one of the ABOVE digits 2,6,7,8 ; nOW LOOK at the options - only one option 6 appears in the options. Therefore 6 must stand for C which is the answer.
