In a dictionary, the words at each stage are arranged in alphabetical order.

In the given problem, we must consider the words beginning with C, C, H, I, N, 0 in order. So,

Total number of words starting with C=5!=120, which include the word COCHIN also.

$\therefore$ The number of words that appear before the word COCHIN is less than 120.

Now, Number of words starting with CC = 4!

Number of words starting with CH = 4!

Number of words starting with CI = 4!

Number of words starting with CN = 4!

Next word starting with CO i.e. COCHIN = 1

$\therefore$  Required number of words = 4 x 4! = 96
