A word and number arrangement machine when given an input line of words and numbers rearranges them following a particular rule in each step. The following is an illustration of an input and its rearrangement:
Input:      number 13 sequence 20 how 15 people 23 base 19 jug 29
Step I:     base 19 number 13 sequence 20 how 15 people 23 jug 29
Step II:    base 19 how 15 number 13 sequence 20 people 23 jug 29
Step III:   base 19 how 15 jug 29 number 13 sequence 20 people 23
Step IV:   base 19 how 15 jug 29 number 13 people 23 sequence 20
And Step IV is the last step of the above input. As per the rules followed in the above steps, find out in each of the following questions the appropriate step for the given input.
Input:      train 55 only 41 most 35 year 29 first 37 cost 52 share 65
9. Which element is third to the right of ‘35’ in step III?
A) most
B) 41
C) only
D) 29
E) None of these
10. What is the final step of the given input?
a) Step IV
B) Step V
C) Step VI
D) Step III
E) None of these
Solutions:
1. C)
2. C)
3. A) By, comparing letters and digit, we get
T = 1; O = 2; U = 3; R = 4; C = 5; L = 6; E = 7; A = 8;S = 9 and P = 0
As the 5th letter is SCULPTURE is P and '0' is used for P, therefore, 5th digit is the required code which is '0'.
4. E) L > T, P < T, K≥L
L>P; K>T; K>P
Therefore, All follows
5. C) R = U, U < Q, W ≥ R
W=U; W>U; Q >R follows
Either I or II and III follows
