Solutions (1-5):
Sol. In this input output question two numbers are arranged in each step following a certain pattern. Let us understand the logic behind it-
* Even numbers are arranged at the right end, from left to right in ascending order after adding one in each number (Numbers are picked from lowest to highest).
* Odd numbers are arranged at the left end, from right to left in ascending order after the digits are interchanged within the number (Numbers are picked from lowest to highest).
