Directions (Q. 6-10): Study the following information, carefully and answer the given questions.
A word and number arrangement machine When given an input line of words and numbers rearranges them following, a particular rule. The following is an illustration of input and rearrangement.
Input: 19 our 8 dear 14 13 like even 5 prove 9 appear
Step I:appear 5 19 our 8 dear 14 13 like even prove 9
Step II:appear 5 even 13 19 our 8 dear 14 like prove  9
Step III:appear 5 even 13 our 19 8 dear 14 like prove 9
Step IV:appear 5 even 13 our 19 prove 8 dear 14 like  9
Step V:appear 5 even 13 our 19 prove 8 like 9 dear 14
Step V is the last step of the rearrangement. As per rules followed in above steps, find out, in each of the following questions, the appropriate steps for the input given below.

1)a   2)a   3)e   4)a   5)e   6)c   7)a   8)d   9)b   10)d

1). A)
According to question,
821ร  2×1 = 2
547ร  4×7 = 28
452ร  5 x2 =10
935ร  3×5 =15
368ร  6 x8 = 48

2). A)
According to question,
821ร  8-2=6 ; 547ร  5-4=1
452ร  5 – 4 = 1 ; 935ร  9 -3 =6
368ร  6 -3 = 3

3). E)
Arranging in ascending order we have,
128  457  245 359  368
Second highest number = 368
Required sum =6+8=14

4). A)
Interchanging according to question,
128  745   254   539  863
Required number = 452

5). E)
821ร (-3) = 521; 547ร (-3) = 247;  452ร (+2) = 472;   935ร (-3) = 635;   368ร  (+2) = 388

Directions (Q. 6-10):The machine rearranges one word and one number in each step. First, it rearranges words starting with a vowel in alphabetical order, then it rearranges words starting with a consonant in reverse alphabetical order.
For numbers, it first rearranges prime numbers in ascending order, then composite numbers in ascending order.
