Sol. The machine arranges a word and a number in each step. Words are arranged in alphabetical order in such a way that word with the smallest starting alphabet is place at the left end in each step. Similarly, the numbers are arranged in decreasing order in such a way that the highest number is placed at the rightmost end in one step, followed by the second largest number in second step and so on.
In the final step all the words are converted into a numerical value which denotes the sum of the values of its vowels. For Ex. SOUL= 15(O)+21(U)=36. Similarly, all the two-digit number are converted into their digital sum. For Ex. 92->9+2->11->1+1=2
