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

Input: xmas 24 eye 35 moon 29 roop 47 lost 25
Step I: 47 xmas 24 eye 35 moon 29 roop 25 lost
Step II: 29 47 24 eye 35 moon roop 25 lost xmas
Step III: 35 29 47 24 eye moon 25 lost xmas roop
Step IV: 25 35 29 47 24 eye lost xmas roop moon
Step V: 24 25 35 29 47 lost xmas roop moon eye

Step V is the last step of the above arrangement as the intended arrangement is obtained. As per the rules followed in the given steps find out the appropriate steps for the given input.
Input: prompt 20 walv 47 dog 84 look 38 roofs 56

Q11. In which step the elements ‘dog walv prompt’ found in the same order?

Step I
Step IV
Step V
Step II
None of these
Solution:
In this Machine, we can see that both numbers and words are arranged in each step. So,
(a) For words arrangement- Words are arranged in decreasing alphabetical order according to the last letter of the word from right end in each step. And this process is continued in further steps.
(b) For number arrangement- The number with the greatest value of the multiplication of its digits is arranged at the leftmost end in each step. For example: -
28 is arranged before 81 because 2x8=16 > 8x1=8.

Input: prompt 20 walv 47 dog 84 look 38 roofs 56
Step I: 84 prompt 20 47 dog look 38 roofs 56 walv
Step II: 56 84 20 47 dog look 38 roofs walv prompt
Step III: 47 56 84 20 dog look 38 walv prompt roofs
Step IV: 38 47 56 84 20 dog walv prompt roofs look

Q12. What is the position of ‘56’ from the left end in the fourth step?
Fifth
Fourth
Sixth
Seventh

In this Machine, we can see that both numbers and words are arranged in each step. So,
(a) For words arrangement- Words are arranged in decreasing alphabetical order according to the last letter of the word from right end in each step. And this process is continued in further steps.
(b) For number arrangement- The number with the greatest value of the multiplication of its digits is arranged at the leftmost end in each step. For example: -
28 is arranged before 81 because 2x8=16 > 8x1=8.
