Solution:
In this input output question two numbers are arranged in each step following a certain pattern. Let us understand the logic behind it-
For Words: Words are arranged according to the place value of the last letter in the alphabetical series from right to left in the right end. The word which has the last letter, which comes 1st in alphabetical series, is arranged first and so on. For example, “music and guide” in which we can see that “c” and “e” are last letters of both words but c comes 1st, so “music” will be arranged 1st.
For Numbers: They are arranged in increasing order. The prime numbers are arranged first followed by composite numbers from left to right in left end.
