Direction (11-15): A word and number arrangement machine when given an input line of words and numbers rearranges then following a particular rule in each step. The following is an illustration of input and rearrangement (All the numbers are two-digit numbers).

Input: 85 19 sun 52 own these ample 57 narrow 11 buy 29
Step I: 11 85 19 sun 52 own these 57 narrow buy 29 ample
Step II: 52 11 85 19 sun these 57 narrow buy 29 ample own
Step III: 19 52 11 85 sun these 57 narrow 29 ample own buy
Step IV: 29 19 52 11 85 sun these 57 ample own buy narrow
Step V: 57 29 19 52 11 85 these ample own buy narrow sun
Step VI: 85 57 29 19 52 11 ample own buy narrow sun these

Step VI is the last step of the above input. As per the rules followed in the above steps, find out in each of the following questions, the appropriate answer.

Input: 68 won appear 76 those now alone 66 52 is 92

Solutions  Solutions(6-10):
S6. Ans. (b)
Sol. Given series – 5 H K 8 2 L P 7 D W F A I Z 31 5 G Q W R X T Z 4 9 6 M N
Hence, there is only one such number which is immediately preceded by prime number.

S7. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given series – 5 H K 8 2 L P 7 D W F A I Z 31 5 G Q W R X T Z 4 9 6 M N
After removing – 5 H 8 2 L P 7 D W F A I Z 31 5 G Q W R X T 4 9 6 M N
So, 15th element from the left end = 1

S8. Ans. (c)
Sol. Given series – 5 H K 8 2 L P 7 D W F A I Z 31 5 G Q W R X T Z 4 9 6 M N
Sixth alphabet from the left end = W
Eighth alphabet from the right end = Q
Hence, there are five alphabets between W and Q.

S9. Ans. (c)
Sol. Given series – 5 H K 8 2 L P 7 D W F A I Z 31 5 G Q W R X T Z 4 9 6 M N
So, required sum = 8 + 2 + 4 + 6 = 20.

S10. Ans. (d)
Sol. Given series – 5 H K 8 2 L P 7 D W F A I Z 31 5 G Q W R X T Z 4 9 6 M N
16th element from the left end = 1
So, 7th element to the right of 1 = T

Solutions (11-15):
Sol. One number and one word is arranged in each step.
In the arrangement, numbers are arranged according to the increasing order of the sum of two-digit number from left end in each step.
Words are arranged as per its first letter (followed by second letter if first letter is same) from the right end in every step. First vowel and then consonant as they appear in alphabet series.

Input: 68 won appear 76 those now alone 66 52 is 92
Step I: 52 68 won appear 76 those now 66 is 92 alone
Step II: 92 52 68 won 76 those now 66 is alone appear
Step III: 66 92 52 68 won 76 those now alone appear is
Step IV: 76 66 92 52 68 won those alone appear is now
Step V: 68 76 66 92 52 won alone appear is now those
Step VI: 68 76 66 92 52 alone appear is now those won
