Directions (31-35): A word and number arrangement machine is given an input line of words and numbers; it arranges them following a particular rule in each step. The following is an illustration of an input and its rearrangement. (All the number is two digit numbers):

Input: ray 74 took mean 97 84 65 72 ever date 67

Step I: date ray 74 took mean 84 65 72 ever 67 97

Step II: date ever ray 74 took mean 65 72 67 97 84

Step III: date ever mean ray took 65 72 67 97 84 74

Step IV: date ever mean ray took 65 67 97 84 74 72

Step V: date ever mean ray took 65 97 84 74 72 67

Step VI: date ever mean ray took 97 84 74 72 67 65

And step VI is the last step of the above arrangement. As per the rules followed in the given steps, find out the appropriate steps for the given input.

(d) Seven

(e) Eight

Explanation: As M=J≥D we can say that either M=D or N>D

Explanation: From the statement we get, K≥D≤N>B. Hence neither I nor II is true.

Explanation:

From the statement we get W≤T<X=J, hence J<W and T<J are definitely true.

Explanation: From the given statement we get D=N>B <L, hence D>B is definitely true but L>D is false.

Explanation: From the statement we get C≤D=N<F, thus C<N is false as C can also be equal to N but F>C is definitely true.

Explanation:

R is brother of S means D is father of R. R is son of O also, so O is mother of R.

Explanation:

M >O, N > P and Q is not as heavy as N, but is heavier than O.

P is not as heavy as O means P is the lightest book.

Explanation:

4

4 × 2 + 2 = 10

10 × 2 + 2 = 22

22 × 2 + 2 = 46

46 × 2 + 2 = 94

94 × 2 + 2 = 190

190 × 2 + 2 = 382

Explanation:

794=16+26+36

276= 15+25+35

98 =14 + 24 + 34

36 = 13 + 23 + 33

14 = 12+22+32

11+21+31 = 6

Explanation: Starting from 1 each number is being divided by 20.

Explanation: Here words are arranged in alphabetical order, while numbers in descending order from the right side:

Input: app is ox 32 87 ever shoe 72 69 96 66

Step I: app ever is ox 32 87 shoe 72 69 66 96

Step II: app ever is ox shoe 32 72 69 66 96 87
