Questions (01-06):
Numbers get arranged on both ends in odd-numbered steps while words get arranged on the inner side in even-numbered steps till a particular pattern is formed. In Step I, the largest no. goes on the left end and the second largest on the right end. In step II, the first word in reverse alphabetical order (i.e. the last word in alphabetical order) comes on the left (just after the arranged number) and the second word in the reverse alphabetical order goes on the right (just before the arranged number).
In Step III, it is now the turn of numbers. The third largest goes on the left and the fourth largest on the right. Again, the in Step IV, its words. The third word in reverse alphabetical order goes to the left (just after the arranged numbers and words) and the fourth goes to the right (just before the arranged ones). And so on, alternately.
Input:65 work in 23 to be 13 89 managed 46 97 load 34 healthy 55 style
Step I:97 65 work in 23 to be 13 managed 46 load 34 healthy 55 style 89
Step II:97 work 65 in 23 be 13 managed 46 load 34 healthy 55 style to 89
Step III:65 97 work in 23 be 13 managed 46 load 34 healthy style to 89 55
Step IV:65 97 work style in 23 be 13 46 load 34 healthy managed to 89 55
Step V:46 65 97 work style in 23 to be 13 load healthy managed to 89 55 34
Step VI:46 65 97 work style load 23 be 13 healthy in managed to 89 55 34
Step VII:23 46 65 97 work style load be healthy in managed to 89 55 34 13
Step VIII:23 46 65 97 work style load healthy be in managed to 89 55 34 13.

7). BโคA=N>KโฅS
Hence A>S and conclusion I is true
B and K canโt be compared. Hence conclusion II is not true.

8). BโคA=N>KโฅS
Hence BโคN and conclusion I is true
Again, N>S or S

9). KโฅL=MโฅN=OโคP
Hence KโฅN. Thus, conclusion I (KโคN) is not true.
Again, LโฅO. Hence conclusion II (L=O) is not definitely true.

10). KโฅL=MโฅN=OโคP
Hence K and P canโt be compared. Thus conclusion I is not true. But MโฅO. Hence conclusion II is true.
