Directions (1 – 5): An arrangement machine, when given an input line of numbers/words, rearranges them following a particular rule in each step. The following is an illustration of the input and the steps of arrangement :

Input : down delusion 87 21 pat ignorance 56 35 fight 25
Step I : ignorance down delusion 87 21 pat 56 35 fight 25
Step II : ignorance delusion down 87 21 pat 56 35 fight 25
Step III : ignorance delusion fight down 87 21 bat 56 35 25
Step IV : ignorance delusion fight down pat 87 21 56 35 25
Step V : ignorance delusion fight down pat 87 56 21 35 25
Step VI : ignorance delusion fight down pat 87 56 35 21 25
Step VII : ignorance delusion fight down pat 87 56 35 25 21

Since the numbers/words are already arranged, the machine stops after this step. Otherwise the machine may carry on its logic until the numbers get fully arranged. Study the logic and answer the questions that follow:

  1. For the input “right forest sat moon 21 costliest infrastructure 43 27 48 76” which step number is the following output:
    infrastructure costliest forest right moon sat 43 21 27 48 76

    A) III
    B) IV
    C) V
    D) There is no such step
    E) None of these
    Answer & Explanation
    D) There is no such step
    Explanation:

    Infrastructure – 14 letters, costliest – 9 letters, forest – 6 letters, right – 5 letters, moon – 4 letters, sat – 3 letters
    Input : right forest sat moon 21 costliest infrastructure 43 27 48 76
    Step I : infrastructure right forest sat moon 21 costliest 43 27 48 76
    Step II : infrastructure costliest right forest sat moon 21 43 27 48 76
    Step III : infrastructure costliest forest right sat moon 21 43 27 48 76
    Step IV : infrastructure costliest forest right moon sat 21 43 27 48 76
    Step V : infrastructure costliest forest right moon sat 76 21 43 27 48
    and so on
  2. Which step number if the last step of the above input?
    A) V
    B) VI
    C) VII
    D) VIII
    E) None of these
    Answer & Explanation
    D) VIII
    Explanation:

    Step V : infrastructure costliest forest right moon sat 76 21 43 27 48
    Step VI : infrastructure costliest forest right moon sat 76 48 21 43 27
    Step VII : infrastructure costliest forest right moon sat 76 48 43 21 27
    Step VIII : infrastructure costliest forest right moon sat 76 48 43 27 21
  3. In step IV of above input, if ‘costliest’ is related to ‘43’ and ‘forest’ is related to ‘27’, then to which of the following is ‘48’ related to?
    A) moon
    B) right
    C) sat
    D) infrastructure
    E) Cannot be determined
    Answer & Explanation
    B) right
    Explanation:

    In 4th step, right is 4th word and 48 is 4th number

    A) determined highest cannot crown star 56 34 47 66
    B) determined highest cannot crown 34 star 56 47 66
    C) determined highest cannot crown star 66 34 56 47
    D) determined highest cannot crown star 34 56 47 66
    E) None of these
    Answer & Explanation
    D) determined highest cannot crown star 34 56 47 66
    Explanation:

    Input: crown 34 star 56 47 cannot determined 66 highest
    Step I: determined crown 34 star 56 47 cannot 66 highest
    Step II: determined highest crown 34 star 56 47 cannot 66
    Step III: determined highest cannot crown 34 star 56 47 66
    Step IV: determined highest cannot crown star 34 56 47 66
