Directions (4-8): Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions.

A word and 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 input and rearrangement.

Input- word 28 synthesis 27 light 34 political 66
Step-I: mjhiu word 28 synthesis 27 34 political 12

Step-III: mjhiu qpmjujdbm tzouiftjt word 27 12 7 10
Step-IV: mjhiu qpmjujdbm tzouiftjt xpse 12 7 10 9

Step IV is the last step of given input

Q8. Which of the following element is fifth to the right of ‘ofx’ in IV step?
(a) unique
(b) mjlf
(c) 7
(d) 25
(e) None of these

Solutions (4-8):
Sol. In this new pattern Input-Output question only one word and one number is arranged in each step. Let us understand the logic behind it- In each step the words are arranged from the left end while the numbers are arranged from the right end.

For words- words are arranged alphabetical order (English dictionary) from left end (as the word with the lowest place value will be arranged first from the end) with each letter of word is replaced by its succeeding letter according to alphabetical series while and same will be followed in further steps.

For numbers- Numbers are arranged in descending order from right end in such a way that each number is replaced by addition of both the digits of the number.

Input- unique 46 new 39 like 43 hell 25

Step-I: ifmm unique new 39 like 43 25 10
Step-II: ifmm mjlf unique new 39 25 10 7
Step-III: ifmm mjlf ofx unique 25 10 7 12
