**Q.Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions.**

When a word and number arrangement machine is given an input line of words and numbers,

it arranges them following a particular rule. The following is an illustration of Input and

rearrangement.(All the numbers are two digit numbers.)

**Input**: table 79 to theorem 57 14 tone 86 63 tablet 42 ton

Step I: theorem table 79 to 57 tone 86 63 tablet 42 ton 41

Step II: tablet theorem table 79 to 57 tone 86 63 ton 41 24

Step III: table tablet theorem 79 to tone 86 63 ton 41 24 75

Step IV: tone table tablet theorem 79 to 86 ton 41 to 75 36

Step V: ton tone table tablet theorem to 86 41 24 75 36 97

Step VI: to ton tone table tablet theorem 41 24 75 36 97 68

Step VI is the largest step of above arrangement as the indended arrangement as the intended

arrangement is obtained as per the rules followed in the given steps, find out the appropriate

steps for the Input

**Input**: abbot 63 acer 19 abandon 72 25 as ace 48 abacus 56

1.Which element comes exactly between ‘abandon’ and ‘acer’ in Step III of the given

input?

A. 63

B. as

C. 91

D. abbot

E. 56

2.Which of the following combinations represent the sixth and eighth element in

Step II of the given input from left end?

A. 63 and abacus

B. ace and 63

C. 72 and abacus

D. 72 and ace

E. 48 and abbot

3.If in the last step ‘2’ is added to each of the odd numbers and ‘1’ is subtracted from

each of the even numbers, then how many numbers multiple of ‘3’ will be formed?

A. Two

B. One

C. None

D. Three

E. More than three

4.Which element is fourth to the left of one which is ninth from the left end in second

last step?

A. abbot

B. 72

C. abandon

D. 91

E. abacus

5.If the Step IV, ’72’ interchange its position with ‘abbot’ and ‘abandon’ also

interchanges its position with ’91’ then which element will be to the immediate right

of ’91’?

A. 63

B. as

C. 52

D. abandon

E. 72
