Step I:  movement 06 49 73 fine 97 classic traffic

Step II:  73 movement 06 49 fine classic traffic 97

Step III:  classic 73 movement 06 49 traffic 97 fine

Step IV:  06 classic 73 movement traffic 97 fine 49

Step IV, is the last step of the above arrangement as the intended arrangement is obtained.

As per the rules followed in the given steps find out the appropriate steps for the given input.

Input:12 salary increment 83 58 incentive 37 delay

1. In which of the following step the elements ’12 salary 58 delay’ found in the same order?

(a) Step I

(b) Step IV

(c) Step III

(d) Step II

(e) none of these

Ans. d

Exp.  The machine rearranges words and numbers in alternative steps. In 1st and 3rd step words are arranged while in 2nd and 4th step numbers are arranged. The words are arranged according to the number of letters in it from both the ends, such that the word containing highest number of letter is arranged from left and the 2nd highest on right end and the same is done in 3rd step. If, two words contain same number of letters then they are arranged according to reverse alphabetical order as per the alphabetical series.

For numbers, In step-2 firstly prime numbers are arranged in ascending order from both ends (left to right). Similarly composite numbers are arranged in the 4th step in ascending order from both ends (left to right).
