Explanation:
Direction (Q. 1-5)
From Input to Step I. The world that comes first in alphabetical order goes to the first position. The smallest number goes to the second position. The rest of the line shifts rightward.
From Step I to Step II. The word that comes second in alphabetical order goes to the first position. The second smallest number goes to the second position. The rest of the line shifts rightward.
This goes on until in the last step all the words are arranged in reverse alphabetical order and the numbers are arranged in descending order from left to right.
Input: 32 proud girl beautiful 48 55 97 rich family 61 72 17 nice life.
Step I: beautiful 17 32 proud girl 48 55 97 rich family 61 72 nice life
Step II: family 32 beautiful 17 proud girl 48 55 97 rich 61 72 nice life

Direction (Q. 6-8)
The word and number arrangement machine rearranges the input with the logic that in step I, it shifts the largest number to the left-most place and the last word coming in English alphabetical series to the rightmost place. In step II, it shifts the smallest number to the leftmost place and the next word (in reverse alphabetical order) to the rightmost. In step III 2nd largest number is shifted to the leftmost place and so on.
Input: fun 89 at the 28 16 base camp 35 53 here 68
Step I: 89 fun at 28 16 base camp 35 53 here 68 the
Step II: 16 89 fun at 28 base camp 35 53 68 the here
Step III: 68 16 89 at 28 base camp 35 53 the here fun
Step IV: 28 68 16 89 at base 35 53 the here fun camp
Step V: 53 28 68 16 89 at 35 the here fun camp base
