A word and number arrangement machine when given an input line of words and numbers rearranges them following a particular rule in each step. The following is an illustration of input and rearrangement. (All the numbers are two-digit numbers.)
Input: tall 48 13 rise alt 99 76 32 wise jar high 28 56 barn
Step I: 13 tall 48 rise 99 76 32 wise jar high 28 56 barn alt
Step II: 28 13 tall 48 rise 99 76 32 wise jar high 56 alt barn
Step III: 32 28 13 tall 48 rise 99 76 wise jar 56 alt barn high
Step IV: 48 32 28 13 tall rise 99 76 wise 56 alt barn high jar
Step V: 56 48 32 28 13 tall 99 76 wise alt barn high jar rise

Answer-
(1-4): The machine rearranges words and numbers in such a way that numbers are arranged from left side with the smallest number coming first and move subsequently so that in the last step numbers are arranged in descending order. While the words are arranged from right side as they appear in English alphabetical order.
Input: 84 why sit 14 32 not best ink feet 51 27 vain 68 92
Step I: 14 84 why sit 32 not ink feet 51 27 vain 68 92 best
Step II: 27 14 84 why sit 32 not ink 51 vain 68 92 best feet
Step III: 32 27 14 84 why sit not 51 vain 68 92 best feet ink
Step IV: 51 32 27 14 84 why sit vain 68 92 best feet ink not
Step V: 68 51 32 27 14 84 why vain 92 best feet ink not sit
Step VI: 84 68 51 32 27 14 why 92 best feet ink not sit vain
Step VII: 92 68 84 51 32 27 14 best feet ink not sit vain why
1. -5
2. -4
3. -2; 27, 14 and best
4. -3; Step IV: 51 32 27 14 84 why sit vain 68 92 best feet ink not The position of ‘why’ in this step is sixth from the left end.
