Directions: 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.
 


Input  : tension 26 releases 18 because 71 you 5 watch movies 61 24
Step 1: because 5 tension 26 releases 18 71 you watch movies 61 24
Step 2: releases 18 because 5 tension 26 71 you watch movies 61 24
Step 3: movies 24 releases 18 because 5 tension 26 71 you watch 61
Step 4: tension 26 movies 24 releases 18 because 5 71 you watch 61
Step 5: you 61 tension 26 movies 24 releases 18 because 5 71 watch
Step 6: watch 71 you 61 tension 26 movies 24 releases 18 because 5

Find the different steps of output using the above mentioned logic for the following input.

Input: calcium 47 makes 56 body 70 more 21 strong glowing 92 10
1
What is the average of the numbers between 'glowing' and 'makes' in step 2?
» Explain it
D
From the following explanation we get to know that the numbers between 'glowing' and 'makes' in step 2 are 21,10 and 47.

Required average = (21+10+47)/3 = 26.

Step 2 :glowing 21 calcium 10 47 makes 56 body 70 more strong 92

Hence option D is the correct answer.

Final Output:

Input   :calcium 47 makes 56 body 70 more 21 strong glowing 92 10

Step 6: strong 92 body 70 more 56 makes 47 glowing 21 calcium 10

Common Explanation:

The given output is obtained by following the below mentioned logic.
 
Change in Word- 
The words are arranged to the left most end of each step on the basis of number of vowels in the word. The word having highest number of vowels is considered first for the rearrangement. If more than one word is having same number of vowels , then the preference will be given to the word that comes first as per the dictionary order.
 
Change in Number- The number is placed in lowest to highest order after the word at extreme left end. First the lowest number is placed then the second highest and then so on.

Note- Changes in word and number takes place simultaneously at each step. Numbers are placed immediately after the word.
