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

Input: 234 183 243 322 262 183 482 333

Step I: 115 58 78 159 129 58 239 108

Step II: 173 20 237 30 187 181 347

Step III: 11 02 12 03 16 10 14

**Q10.What is the sum of all the numbers present in step III? **

(a) 80

(b) 90

(c) 92

(d) 82

(e) 70

**Solutions**

**Solution (6-10):**

**Sol.** Different operations are applied on the numbers in every step.

**Step I:** Even number is divided by 2 and then subtracted by 2. Odd number is divided by 3 and then subtract by 3.

**Step II:** add 1st and 2nd no. (+), difference of 2nd and 3rd no. (-) and so on. This operation starts from left end and continues till the addition of 7th and 8th no. So, the sequence is: +, –, +, –, +, –, +.

**Step III:** Sum of all the digits of each number

**Step IV:** Odd Number is multiplied by 2, Even number is multiplied by 3.

**Step I:** 32 80 108 290 109 160 86 86

**Step II:** 112 28 398 181 269 74 172

**Step III:** 4 10 20 10 17 11 10
