Directions (Q. 9 –10): Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below : 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. (All the number are two digit numbers) :
Input :And 25 patient 36 inside 8 of 27 decade 216 court 49.
Step - I :And 27 25 patient 36 inside 8 of decade 216 court 49.
Step -II:And 27 inside 216 25 patient 36 8 of decade court 49.
Step -III:And 27 inside 216 of 8 25 patient36 decade court 49.
Step-IV: And 27 inside 216 of 8 court 25 patient 36 decade 49.
Step-V:And 27 inside 216 of 8 court 25 decade 36 patient 49.
Step V is the last step of the rearrangement as the desired arrangement is obtained. As per rules followed in the above steps, find out in each of the questions the appropriate step for the given input. Input:Went 216 broke 8 is 27 through 16 actors 25 out 49.

9. How many steps are required to complete this arrangement ?
1)  Five 2)  Six 3)  Four 4)  Seven 5) None of these

10. Which of the following is seventh from the left in step IV ?
1)  27 2)  broke 3) out 4)  25 5)  Went

1. 3; Some  Hotels  are Five  Star  (I) +  No  Five  Star  is Restaurant (E) = I + E = O. Hence, conclusion (I) No Hotels are Restaurant does not follow. Again, No Five Star is Restaurant (E) + All Five Star are Big (A) ---> E  + A  =  O*. But  conclusion  II  is true  in possibility. Hence, conclusion II follows.

2. 2; All Lion are Animals (A) + Some Lion are Dangerous (I) = A + I = No conclusion. Hence, conclusion (I) does not  follows.  But  it  is  true  in  possibility. Therefore  it follows. But conclusion II also follows.

3. 4; All Black are Flower (A) + All Flower are Red (A + A)
---> A  ---> All Black are Red ---> conversion ---> Some Black are
Red. Hence, conclusion I and II do not follow.

4. 5; Cricket is only common between these two statements so both the statement are required to answer this question.

5. 4; From statement I : P > Q, S > Q
From statement II : R > P, Q S > T

So both the statements are not  enough to answer this question on combining both statement I and II: We can’t get the desired result.

6. 1; From I D and R are either brother and sister or both are brothers because T is the wife of D and sister in law of R. So D is the brother of R. From II : D and R are either sister and brother or both are  brothers because O is the wife of R. Hence, the data instatement I is sufficient to answer the question.
