E.Both assumption I and assumption II are implicit

Directions (1-5):

For step -1 lowest number is increased by 2 and it is arranged at left end and also highest number is decreased by 2 and it is arranged at right end

For step -2, Second lowest number is increased by 2 and it is arranged at left end and also Second highest number is decreased by 2 and it is arranged at right end and so on for the remaining steps.

Input: 34 89 27 58 92 15 46 69 96 80

Step I: 17 34 89 27 58 92 46 69 80 94

Step II: 29 17 34 89 58 46 69 80 94 90

Step III: 36 29 17 58 46 69 80 94 90 87

Step IV: 48 36 29 17 58 69 94 90 87 78

Step V: 60 48 36 29 17 94 90 87 78 67

Step 4 – 48 36 29 17 58 69 94 90 87 78

The sum of the number which is third from the right end and the number which is fourth from the left end in step 4 = 90+17 =107

In step -4 58 69 94 appeared in the same sequence

Second number from the left end in step -2 – 17

Fifth number from the right end in step -3 – 69

69-17 =52

Step -5 (last step) – 60 48 36 29 17 94 90 87 78 67

94- Third to the left of the number which is ninth from the left end in last step.

Odd number is increased by 13 and even number is decreased by 15 in third step – 36 29 17 58 46 69 80 94 90 87 becomes 21 42 30 43 31 82 65 79 75 100

Lowest number – 21
