A word 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: every 22 country 35 28 free ball 37 18 hub lot 20
Step I : 37 every 22 country 35 28 free 18 hub lot 20 ball
Step II : 35 37 every 22 28 free 18 hub lot 20 ball country
Step III: 28 35 37 22 free 18 hub lot 20 ball country every
Step IV: 22 28 35 37 18 hub lot 20 ball country every free
Step V : 20 22 28 35 37 18 lot ball country every free hub
Step VI: 18 20 22 28 35 37 ball country every free hub lot
And step VI 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: 19 gupta 38 was called 24 45 on 27 41 the day next 35

Q11. How many steps will be required to complete the given rearrangement?
Six
Four
Eight
Seven
None of these
Solution:
Logic:- In the first step, the largest number comes to the left and the first word in alphabetical order goes to the right. In the second step, the second largest number comes to the left and the second word in alphabetical order goes to the right. This goes on till numbers are arranged in ascending order and words in alphabetical order in the last step.
