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 rearrangement.
Input:  they 68 also 59 called 76 for 33 greater 46 strength 91
Step I:  also they 68 59 called 76 for greater 46 strength 91 34
Step II: called also they 68 76 for greater 46 strength 91 34 60
Step III:  for called also they 68 76 greater 46 strength 34 60 92
Step IV:  greater for called also they 68 76 strength 34 60 92 45
Step V: strength greater for called also they 76 34 60 92 45 67
Step VI: they strength greater for called also 34 60 92 45 67 75
And Step VI is the last step of the rearrangement of the above input.

Solutions:
(1 – 5): The logic is as follows
1) For words arrangement- In each word we have to see the first letter and then the first letter which is lowest among all letters of given word according to English dictionary arranges first to left. For example word- act (a is the first letter and also lowest among all the first letter of given word). So “act” arranges first to left and this process is continued in further step.
2) For number arrangement- Numbers are arranged according to following condition. In first step lowest odd number arranges first to right. And this process is continued in further step until all the odd number is arranged in third step. In fourth step lowest even number is to be arranged. And this process is continued in further step until all the even number are arranged (Each odd number is added by one (+1) while they are arranged and each even number is subtracted by one (-1) while they are arranged).
Input:  because 56 such 29 act 24 put 17 extreme 32 risk 33
