They work in different ministries i.e. A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H but not necessarily in the same order. They have their breaks in different time slots i.e. 8-9, 9-10 and 10-11. Not more than three persons have break in the same slot. The one who works in G sits opposite to the one who works in E. N sits opposite to S, who works in A. N neither works in D nor B. T is not neighbor of P. The ones who work in G, works with only the one who works in C. N sits 3rd right to Q. N faces towards the center. The immediate neighbors of S have break in same slot. Two persons sit between N and O.T, who works in E sits 3rd right to O. The one who sits opposite to M has break in the same slot as M. The one who works in E has break before the one who sits immediate right to T. Immediate neighbors of P faces center. P sits 2nd right to M and has break in 8-9 time slot. The one who works in H sits opposite to the one who works in F. Neither M nor O works in H. The one who works in E is not neighbor of the persons who work in F and B.

A number arrangement machine when given an input line of numbers rearranges them following a particular rule. The following is an illustration of input and rearrangement.

Input: 10 51 18 47 26 65 61 32
Step I: 12 51 18 47 26 61 32 63
Step II: 22 12 51 47 26 32 63 57
Step III: 34 22 12 47 32 63 57 43
Step IV: 48 34 22 12 63 57 43 31

Step IV, is the last step of the rearrangement. As per the rules followed in the above steps, find out in each of the following questions the appropriate steps for the given input.

Solution:
Logic: - Let us understand the logic behind the given machine input. Numbers arranges on the left as well as right end of each step. The lowest even number gets arranged on the left end after addition of 2 and the highest odd number is arranged on the right end after the subtraction of 2. In the second step second lowest even number is arranged at the left end after addition of 4 and second highest odd number is arranged at the right end after subtraction of 4 and so on till the last step.
