Solution(1-5): Students let us understand the Logic behind this Question and let’s understand how to solve it. When we see the each step, then we can find that both number and words are arranged in each step.
a) For words arrangement- Words are arranged according to last letter of each word. We have to see the last letter of each word. And all words are arranged in descending order from left to right according to their last letter according to alphabetical order.
b) For numbers arrangement- We have to first multiply the both digits of each given number. And then each new number which is obtained from the multiplication of given input number are arranged in descending order.
