Solutions(11-15):
Sol. Students let us understand the Logic behind this Question and let’s understand how to solve it. When we see in each step, then we can find that there are both number and words are arranged in each step.
(1) For words arrangement- Words are arranged according to ascending order given in English alphabetical order. In first step the words which comes first according to English dictionary arranged first to extreme right. And in second step next word are arranged to extreme left.
And this process is continued in further step.
(2) For number arrangement- Number are arranged according to ascending order. In first step lowest number is arranged on extreme left. And in second step next number is arranged on extreme right. And this process is continued in further step (Each odd number is added by two (+2) while they are arranged and two is subtracted from each even number (-2) while they are arranged).
