Questions (1-5):
The machine rearranges one number and one word in each step. It picks even numbers are odd numbers alternately, starting with even numbers, and arranges even numbers in ascending order and odd numbers in descending order from left to right, while words are arranged in reverse alphabetical order from right to left.
Input:vote 13 inn 54 16 air know 49 wonder 24 quick 39 60 lucky
Step I:16 vote 13 inn 54 air know 49 24 quick 39 60 lucky wonder.
Step II:16 49 13 inn 54 air know 24 quick 39 60 lucky vote wonder.
Step III:16 49 24 13 inn 54 air know 39 60 lucky quick vote wonder.
Step IV:16 49 24 39 13 inn 54 air 60 know lucky quick vote wonder
Step V:16 49 24 39 54 13 air 60 inn know lucky quick vote wonder.
Step VI:16 49 24 39 54 13 60 air inn know lucky quick vote wonder

3).First word is related to first number. Similarly, last word will be related to last number

6).Some doctors are MBBS (I) + All MBBS are dentists (A) = I + A = some doctors are dentists (I) + No dentists is an MBA (E) = I + E = O = some doctors are not MBAs. Hence conclusion I follow.
Again, All MBBS are dentists (A) +No dentist is an MBA (E)=A+ E = E = No MBBS is an MBA. Hence conclusion II does not follow.

7).There is no negative statement. Thus the possibilities in I and II exists. Hence both conclusions I and II follow.

8).All schools are colleges (A) โ conversion โ some colleges are schools (I) + all schools are universities (A) = I + A = I = some colleges are universities. Hence conclusion I does not follow.
Again, all schools are universities (A) + No university is Oxford (E) = A + E = E = No school is Oxford. Hence conclusion II follows.

9).No day is a date (E) + some dates are months (I) = E + I = O* = some months are not days. Hence conclusion I follow.
Again, some dates are months (I) + All months are years (A) = I + A = I = some dates are years โ conversion โ some years are dates. Hence conclusion II follows.

10).No poet is writer + some writers are players = E + I = O* = some players are not poets. Hence II does not follow. Nor does I consequently.
