Reasoning Short-cut(Input-Output)

These types of questions regularly come in the competitive examinations. Although they may look complex but they are not so tough. Only factor in that they are time-consuming and time is premium in a competitive test these days.

What is this
Generally one is asked to imagine that there is some kind of computer or Machine. This machine have to given a instruction to perform certain kind of action in each step after that is gave a desire output.

Guideline to solve this type of question

(1) 1st see output then input because without knowing what is final result you may be confused.
Let suppose there is a pen it made  with ink, nib, plastic cover etc. first if you will see the pen then you imagine how this pen made. Otherwise you have to give ink, nib plastic cover than you not imagine what happened. So, 1st step should be see the output.
(2) 2nd step is the ‘see input’.
(3) 3rd step is ‘see other steps that how the output formed’.

Remember
(1) We cannot find previous step means if 5th step or 4th step is given and we have to find out 3rd, 2nd and input. Then we cannot find it.
So, our answer will be Cannot be determined

Seriously its a trick question to answer most of us.... but

Whoever us dictionary to their daily practice in learning new word will sort this kind of problems easily...

Clue is simple when you search any new word comes to us, we will do this by alphabetical order in dictionary i.e., for e.g- Apple, we first sort 'Ap' starting word, if we won't be able to find with first two letter then we take next letter "App" rite.

So we look into given question once:

51 Amezing 33 Awesome 60 Alike 42 Alot 15 Akrosh

And Output will be: 4 5 6 6 6 6 6 7 7 7

Step 1: Akrosh 51 Amezing 33 Awesome Alike 42 Alot 15 60

Step 2: Akrosh Alike Amezing 33 Awesome 42 Alot 15 51 60

Step 3: Akrosh Alike Alot Amezing 33 Awesome 15 42 51 60

Step 4: Akrosh Alike Alot Amezing Awesome 15 33 42 51 60

Step 5: 6 5 4 7 7 6 6 6 6 6

Step 6: 4 5 6 6 6 6 6 7 7

With Best practice this question can solve in 2 - 3 minutes and can score 5 compulsory

Note: If someone found mess with problem i suggest to go for next question
