Directions (4 – 8):
As we can see from the last step of the solved input, the words are arranged together and numbers together. But the exact arrangement is yet not clear.
The 1st, 3rd, 5th words are in alphabetical order while the words at even position are in reverse alphabetical order.
In a similar way, the numbers are also arranged. The highest number is placed first then the lowest then second highest and so on.
Both the operations are applied simultaneously
So, for the given input:
INPUT: eggs 31 18 lotus 44 shoot battery 90 delhi 50 78
Step I: battery eggs 31 18 lotus 44 shoot delhi 50 78 90
Step II: battery shoot eggs 31 lotus 44 delhi 50 78 90 18

Step V: battery shoot delhi lotus eggs 44 90 18 78 31 50
Step VI: battery shoot delhi lotus eggs 90 18 78 31 50 44
4) Answer: B)
5) Answer: E)
6) Answer: B)
7) Answer: A)
8) Answer: B)
Directions (9 – 10):
9) Answer: A)
Given Statement: C & B, C # D, A @ C, E # F, B % E
On converting: C = B, C ≤ D, A < C, E ≤ F, B > E
On combining: A < C = B ≤ D; E < B = C ≤ D; E ≤ F
I) B # D -> B ≤ D -> True (as B ≤ D)
II) F @ B -> F < B -> False (as F > E < B = C ≤ D relation between F and B can’t be determined)
III) C @ D -> C < D -> False (as E < B = C ≤ D)
Hence only conclusion I follows.
10) Answer: B)
Statements: R $ S, S % Q, R $ T, P # Q
On converting: R ≥ S, S > Q, R ≥ T, P ≤ Q
On combining: P ≤ Q < S ≤ R; T ≤ R
I) R % P -> R > P -> True (as P ≤ Q < S ≤ R)
II) S & T -> S = T -> False (as S ≤ R; T ≤ R =>T ≤ R ≥ S)
III) R % Q -> R > Q -> True (as Q < S ≤ R)
Hence, only the conclusions I and III are True.
