Question Transcription/Translation Confusion!



I need help in understanding transcription/translation with regards to Question 3d. (please see attachment)
The answers are already given, I am just trying to figure out how it came about to that.

My question:

In 3d.How does the first 5 amino acids translated from the resulting mRNA encode N Met-Leu-Tyr-Pro-Ala-C - as per the solution given???

Looking at the previous solution for question 3c. the first 15 nucleotides are 5 CUAAUAUUGUGAGAU 3 - as per solution given.

So HOW DID 5 CUAAUAUUGUGAGAU 3 -- translate to amino acids --> N Met-Leu-Tyr-Pro-Ala-C...???

Would this not encode an entirely different set of amino acids? Am i missing something? Please HELP! And thank you in advance for your answer.
