We can decode it as:

  • $U+2=W$
  • $P-2=N$
  • $G+2=I$
  • $R-2=P$
  • $A+2=C$
  • $D-2=B$
  • $E+2=G$

we start with $+2$ and alternate $-2,+2,-2,+2,\dots $ for each letter. similarly

  • $D+2=F$
  • $R-2=P$
  • $O+2=Q$
  • $W-2=U$
  • $N+2=P$

Only option $(D)$ matches.

Hence it is the answer
