In the given input output, one word and one number is arranged in each step. In odd numbered steps such as I, III and V the word is getting arranged from the left end while the number is getting arranged from the right end. While in even numbered steps such as II and IV the numbers are arranged from the left end while the words are arranged from the right end.   For step I- The word which is first according to the alphabetical order is arranged from the left end while the highest number is arranged from the right end and so on in the odd steps. For step II- The number which is lowest is arranged from the left end while the word which is last according to the alphabetical order is arranged from the right end and so on in even steps. Also while arranging each of the number is added by 1 and ‘er’ is removed from each word while arranging.
