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 various steps of rearrangement.
Input :Demand 23 earning jungle 7 output 59 access 4 summer 64 16 power 31 interest 49.
Step - I :access 7 demand 23 earning jungle output 59 4 summer 64 16 power 31 interest 49.
Step -II:access 7 demand 4 23 earning jungle output 59 summer 64 16 power 31 interest 49.
Step -III:access 7 demand 4 earning 23 jungle output 59 summer 64 16 power 31 interest 49.
Step-IV: access 7 demand 4 earning 23 jungle 16 output 59 summer 64 power 31 interest 49.
Step-V:access 7 demand 4 earning 23 jungle 16 interest 31 output 59 summer 64 power 49.
Step-VI: access 7 demand 4 earning 23 jungle 16 interest 31 power 49 output 59 summer 64.
Step VI is the last step of rearrangement. As per the rules followed in the above steps, find out in each of the following
questions the appropriate step, for the given input.
Input:ink 17 silent 25 outer june queen 3 81 element 19 time 36 utmost 37 100.

6. Which of the following will be the last step of rearrangement ?
1)  Step IV 2)  Step V 3)  Step VI 4)  Step VII 5) None of these

7. Which word / number would be at the seventh position from the left in step IV ?
1) queen 2)  36 3)  17 4)  ink 5) None of these

8. Which step would be the following output ?  element 3 June 25 ink 17 silent outer queen81 19 time 36 utmost 37 100
1)  Step I 2)  Step II 3)  Step III 4)  Step IV 5) None of these

9. Which of the following element is third to the right of 'silent' in step V ?
1)  81 2)  utmost 3)  37 4)  time 5) None of these

10. What is the position of 'time' from the right end in the final step ?
1)  fourth 2)  second 3)  third 4)  fifth 5) None of these

1.  5; All teas are coffees –> conversion  All coffees are teas + All coffees are beverages (A)  –> A i.e., All teas are beverages. So, both the conclusions I and II will follow.

2. 1; Some apples are custards (I) + No custard is a juice (E)–> I + E = O –> Some apples are not juice. Hence, conclusion I follows. Again, No pudding is an apple (E) + Some apples are custards (I)–> E +  I =  O* –> Some custards  are  not pudding. Hence, conclusion II does not follows.

3. 4; No Wood is a bat (E) + Some bats are Furniture (I) = O* –> Some Furniture are not wood. Hence, I does not follow. Some bats are Furniture (I) + All furniture are Carpets (A) –> I –>  Some bats are Carpet. Hence, II does not follow.

4. 5; The possibility stated in conclusion I is inherent in the third statement and the conclusion II is inherent in the second statement. So both the conclusion I and II will follow.

5.  2;  Some  smooth  are  plains  is  a  particular  positive statement. So, conclusion I does not follow. Some Mountains are not Cities –>  from conclusion  Some Cities are not Mountain is a possibility. Hence, conclusion II follows.
