**Directions (6-10): In number arrangement machine when given an input line of numbers, it rearranges them following a particular rule in each step. The following is an illustration of input and rearrangement.**

Input: 12 75 28 36 93 44 51

Step I: 13 72 29 37 90 45 48

Step II: 90 72 48 45 37 29 13

Step III: 9 5 4 1 4 7 2

Step IV: 18 10 12 2 12 14 6

And step IV is the last step of the arrangement. As per the above rule followed in the above steps, find out in each of the following questions the appropriate step for the input given below;

**Solutions**

**Solutions (6-10):**

**Sol.** Let us understand the logic behind it-

* In Step-1, one is added in each even digit and three is subtracted from each odd digit of the input.

* In Step-2, All the numbers of step-1 arranged in descending order from left to right.

* In Step-3, Digits of the number are subtracted with in the number which are obtained in step-2.

* In Step-4, two is multiplied in each odd digit and three is multiplied in each even digit which are obtained in step-3.
