This year we've observed major changes in Banking examination's pattern and level. Reasoning especially has surprised many students in SBI Exams as it came packed with a punch. And as not many days are left for IBPS PO and BOM Examsthere comes a need to step up the level of preparation as well.

And to meet the need of the hour, here we give you Twisted Ones of Reasoning.

When a word and number arrangement machine is given an input line words and number, it arranges them following a particular rule. The following is the illustration of input and re-arrangement-

Input: drought 89 famine 12 tornado 64 landslide 92 Monday 41 25 cyclone
Step I: cyclone 11 drought 89 famine tornado 64 landslide 92 Monday 41 25
Step II: cyclone 11 drought 24 89 famine tornado 64 landslide 92 Monday 41
Step III: cyclone 11 drought 24 famine 40 89 tornado 64 landslide 92 Monday
Step IV: cyclone 11 drought 24 famine 40 landslide 63 89 tornado 92 Monday
Step V: cyclone 11 drought 24 famine 40 landslide 63 Monday 88 tornado 92
Step VI: cyclone 11 drought 24 famine 40 landslide 63 Monday 88 tornado 91
Step VII: cyclone 33 drought 96 famine 240 landslide 756 Monday 1144 tornado 1820

This is the final arrangement and step VII is the last step for this input
