Solution:
(1 – 5): Explanation:
The rearrangement is done like (Word Number----Word Number sequence). Words are arranged in ascending order along with that, numbers are arranged in descending order.
The rearrangement machine replaced the vowels of the rearranged words( A E I O U) with reverse orders of vowel like U 0 I E A.
Now, if number rearranged is an even number then add “two” to that even number and for odd number , subtract “two” from that number.
