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: 51 go persons 31 49 less may come 19 arrives 63 44
Step I: arrives 51 go persons 31 49 less may come 19 44 63
Step II: come arrives go persons 31 49 less may 19 44 63 51
Step III: go come arrives persons 31 less may 19 44 63 51 49
Step IV: less go come arrives persons 31 19 63 51 49 44
Step V: may less go come arrives persons 19 63 51 49 44 31
Step VI: persons may less go come arrives 63 51 49 44 31 19

Step VI is the lost 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 (All the numbers are of two digits.)

Input: 99 67 21 them 71 we 25 go attack from 47 danger 10 look 

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?

go from  danger attack  21 them we 25 10 look 99 71 67 47

(1) III
(2) II
(3) VII
(4) IV
(5) There will be no such step

8. In step V, which of the following word/number would be on the 6th position (from the right)?
(1)  47
(2) 10
(3) 21
(4) attack
(5) danger

9. What will be the position of “we” in the last but one step?
(1) seventh from left
(2) seventh from right
(3) eighth from right
(4) eighth from left
(5) Both 1 & 4

10. Which of the following will be the penultimate step?
(1) Step V
(2) Step VI
(3) Step VII
(4) Step III
(5) None of these




Solutions (1-5):
1. (2) None follows

2. (3)

Possibility:

3. (5) Only III follows

4. (3)

Possibilities:

5. (3)

Solutions (6-10) 
Input : 99 67 21 them 71 to 25 go attack from 47 danger 10 look
Step I : attack  67 21 them 71 we 25 go from 47 danger 10 look 99
Step II : danger attack  67 21 them we 25 go from 47 10 look 99 71
Step III : from  danger attack  21 them we 25 go 47 10 look 99 71 67
Step IV : go  from  danger attack  21 them we 25 10 look 99 71 67 47
Step V : look go  from  danger attack  21 them we  10 99 71 67 47 25
Step VI: them look go from danger attack we 10 99 71 67 47 25 21
Step VII: we them look go from danger attack 99 71 67 47 25 21 10
In above arrangement, in each step letters are arranged in alphabetical order in left hand side and greater numbers are arranging first in right hand side.
