Dear Aspirants,

Reasoning Ability is an onerous section. With the increasing complexity of questions, it becomes hard for one to give it a cold shoulder. The only way to make the grade in this particular section in the forthcoming SBI PO Prelims and other banking exams is to practice continuously with all your heart and soul. And, to let you practice with the best of latest pattern questions, here is the Adda247 Reasoning Quiz with the exact same pattern of questions that are being asked in the exams.

Directions (1-5): 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- 99 ginny 82 genny 94 70 gennifer geus 93 gennon 96 gee

Step V-  70 82 93 94 96 99 gee gennifer gennon genny geus ginny
Step V is the last step.

Input:  83 cpo 39 ssb 44 ssc 79 cat  92 ibps 87 cgl

(a) 79
(b) 83
(c) 87
(d) ssc
(e) cat

Q5. How many steps would be needed to get final output?

(b) IV
(c) VII
(d) III
(e) V

Solutions (1-5):
Sol. In this arrangement, in each step, all words are arranged in increasing alphabetical order from right and all numbers are arranged in the decreasing order from left.

In step I for numbers- the highest number come first at left end and for words the smallest word(which comes first) according to alphabetical series comes to the right end and in step II for numbers the second highest number comes at left end and the highest number which arranged in step 1 will shift to the right till the numbers are arranged in and for words the second smallest word comes at right end and the word which arranged in step I will shift to the left till all the words are arranged.

In the final step all words are arranged increasing alphabetical series while numbers are also arranged increasing order from left.
