Explanation:
Directions (Q. 1-5):The machine first rearranges words which are along with numbers according to the ascending order of sum of the digits of the numbers. And then remaining words are arranged in descending order of the length of words. In case words are of equal length, then they are arranged in reverse alphabetical order.
In the last step, except the words that are along with numbers, the place value of the first letter of the words is written in the place of words in alphabet.

Input: garden heat 36 in 28 below normal in 23 over
Step I.  in 23 garden heat 36 in 28 below normal over
Step II. in 23 heat 36 garden in 28 below normal over
Step III. in 23 heat 36 in 28 garden below normal over
step IV. in 23 heat 36 in 28 normal garden below over
Step V. in 23 heat 36 in 28 14 7 215

Directions (Q. 6-10):In the rearrangement a word and a number are rearranged in each step. Words are arranged according to English dictionary from left to right while numbers are rearranged from left to right in descending order โ words at extreme left and numbers at the extreme right. Even if a word/number is already arranged, one step is dedicated to its arrangement. The next word/number is arranged only in the next step.
