### IBPS Exam- machine input

Directions (Q. 1–5): study the following information carefully to 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 : why is 26 bigger then 16 but taller than 34
Step I : then 16 why is 26 bigger but taller than 34
Step II : then 16 is 26 why bigger but taller than 34
Step III : then 16 is 26 than 34 why bigger but taller
Step IV : then 16 is 26 than 34 why taller bigger but
Step V : then 16 is 26 than 34 why taller but bigger
Step V is the last step of the rearrangement of the above input as the intended rearrangement is obtained.
As per the rules followed in the above steps, indicate the answer in each of the following questions with respect to the appropriate step for the given input.

Input for the questions:
Input : does any number less than 30 and more than 20 not equal 40

1.Which step number would be the following output?
‘than 20 does any number less than 30 and more not
equal 40’
1) Step IV
2) Step V
3) Step II
4) Step III
5) None of these

2.What would be the number of the last but one step of
the given arrangement?
1) VII
2) V
3) VI
4) IV
5) None of these

3.Which of the following would be the last step?
1) than 20 than 30 equal 40 does any number less and more not
2) than 20 than 30 equal 40 number not more does any less and
3) than 20 than 30 equal 40 number not more and does any
4) than 20 than 30 equal 40 number not more less does any and
5) None of these

4.Which of the following would be the step III?
1) 20 than 30 than does any number less and more not equal 40
2) than 20 than 30 any number less and more does not equal 40
3) than 20 than 30 any number less and more does not 40 equal
4) than 20 than 30 equal 40 number not more does any less and
5) than 20 than 30 equal 40 does any number less and more not

5.Which word on number would be at 6th position from the right in step VI?
1) any
2) not
3) 40
4) number
5) None of these

(1–5):
When a word is followed by a number, consider both together
as a unit. Now, the arrangement first takes place in ascending
order for these numbers (the preceding word of the unit moves in tow). The remaining words are then arranged in reverse alphabetical order.

Input: does any number less than 30 and more than 20 not equal 40
Step I: than 20 does any number less than 30 and more not equal 40
Step II: than 20 than 30 does any number less and more not equal 40
Step III: than 20 than 30 equal 40 does any number less and more not
Step IV: than 20 than 30 equal 40 number does any less and more not
Step V: than 20 than 30 equal 40 number not does any less and more
Step VI: than 20 than 30 equal 40 number not more does any less and
Step VII: than 20 than 30 equal 40 number not more less does any and
