Directions (6–10): 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 input and rearrangement.

Input : tiger 22 desk 11 95 42 kite none 89 road
Step I : desk tiger 22 11 42 kite none 89 road 95
Step II : kite desk tiger 22 11 42 none road 95 89
Step III : none kite desk tiger 22 11 road 95 89 42
Step IV : road none kite desk tiger 11 95 89 42 22
Step V : tiger road none kite desk 95 89 42 22 11

And step V is the last step of the arrangement.
As per the above rule followed in the above steps, find out in each of the following questions the appropriate step for the input given below;

Input : 40 like zebra 20 70 yellow dear vanish 30 agree 80 50
6.    How many steps would be needed to complete the arrangement?
(1) IV                                 (2) V   
(3) VI                                 (4) VII 
(5) None of these

7.    Which Step number would be the following output?
Vanish like dear agree  zebra 20 yellow  30  80  70  50  40
(1) III                                  (2) II                
(3) VII                                (4) IV              
(5) There will be no such step

8.    Which of the following would be the step I?
(1) agree 40 dear zebra 20 yellow vanish 30 50 80 70
(2) agree dear 20 zebra 40 yellow vanish 50 80 70 30
(3) agree 40 like zebra 20 70 yellow dear vanish 30 80 50 (4) agree 40 like zebra 70 20 dear vanish 50 30 80
(5) None of these

9.    In step V, which of the following word/number would be on the 6th position (from the right)?
(1) 80                                 (2) 20  
(3) 30                                  (4) zebra        
(5) agree

10.  Which of the following would be the final arrangement?
(1) zebra  yellow  vanish  like  dear  agree  20  30  40  50  70  80
(2) agree  dear  like  vanish  yellow  zebra  20  30  40  50  70  80
(3) agree  dear  like  vanish  yellow  zebra  80  70  50  40  30  20
(4) zebra  yellow  vanish  like  dear  agree  80  70  50  40  30  20
(5) None of these



Solutions (1-5)

1.       (4) P ≤ T ≥ L < U
    
 Neither conclusion I nor conclusion II can be drawn from given data

2.       (2)  A ≥ B > D = K
From above inequalities we can conclude that B is greater than K. Hence only conclusion II is true.

3.       (5)  J < K = L
K = L ≥ P
 From above inequalities we can conclude that  J < L and P  K. Hence both conclusions are true.

4.       (1) M > T > O
M ≥ V
     From above inequalities we can conclude that M is greater than T. Hence only conclusion I is true.

5.       (4)  K ≥ T
C > T
P ≥ U
 Neither conclusion I nor conclusion II can be drawn from given data


Solutions (6-10):

Input :  40 like zebra 20 70 yellow dear vanish 30 agree 80 50
Step I:   agree40 like zebra 20 70 yellow dear vanish 30 50 80
Step II: dear agree40 like zebra 20 yellow vanish 30 50 80 70
Step III: like dear agree 40 zebra 20 yellow vanish 30 80 70 50
step IV:                vanish like dear agree zebra 20 yellow 30 80 70 50 40
step V:  yellow vanish like dear agree zebra 20 80 70 50 40 30
step VI: zebra yellow vanish like dear agree 80 70 50 40 30 20
