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: 82 machine them 72 86 complete required 75 79 speak
Step I: 72 82 machine 86 complete required 75 79 speak them
Step II: 75 72 82 machine 86 complete required 79 them speak
Step III: 79 75 72 82 machine 86 complete them speak required
Step IV: 82 79 75 72 86 complete them speak required machine
Step V: 86 82 79 75 72 them speak required machine complete
And Step V 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: word 51 above 49 21 report lock 32 from key 25 36

1)How many steps will be required to complete the given arrangement based on the given input?
a) Seven
b) Six
c) Eight
d) Five
e) None of the above

Logic: In the rearrangement both numbers and words are arranged in each step. In step I the smallest number comes to the left and the last word in alphabetical order comes to the right. In step II the second smallest number comes to the left and the second word from the last in alphabetical order comes to the right. This goes on finally, numbers are arranged from left to right in descending order and words are arranged in reverse alphabetical order.
Input: word 51 above 49 21 report lock 32 from key 25 36
Step I: 21 51 above 49 report lock 32 from key 25 36 word
Step II: 25 21 51 above 49 lock 32 from key 36 word report
Step III: 32 25 21 51 above 49 from key 36 word report lock
Step IV: 36 32 25 21 51 above 49 from word report lock key
Step V: 49 36 32 25 21 51 above word report lock key from
Step VI: 51 49 36 32 25 21 word report lock key from above

2)What will be the position of ‘report’ in the last step?
(a) First from the left end
(b) Third from the right end
(c) Second from the left end

(b) Three
(c) Four
(d) One
(e) None of the above

4)Which element is exactly between ‘51’ and ‘word’ in the second-last step?
a) word
b) 51
c) lock
d) above
e) None of the above

5)In which step are the elements ’51 above 49 from’ present in the same order?
a) Third and fourth
b) Fourth and fifth
c) Fifth
d) Sixth
e) None of the above
