Directions: Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions:

When a word and number arrangement machine is given an input line of words and numbers, it arranges them following a particular rule. The following is an illustration of an input and its rearrangement (all the numbers are two-digit numbers):

Input : 31 exide core 25 35 ruin none 42 23 goal
Step I : core exide 25 35 ruin none 42 23 goal 31
Step II : exide core 25 35 ruin none 42 goal 31 23
Step III : goal exide core 25 35 ruin none 31 23 42
Step IV : none goal exide core 35 ruin 31 23 42 25
Step V : ruin none goal exide core 31 23 42 25 35

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

Input : root flow 33 43 each 73 thin mine 12 62 drop 54
» Explain it
C
In the rearrangement words are arranged in alphabetical order on the left and the number are arranged in ascending order (on the basis of sum of digits) on the right in each step.

Input : root flow 33 43 each 73 thin mine 12 62 drop 54
Step I : drop root flow 33 43 each 73 thin mine 62 54 12
Step II : each drop root flow 43 73 thin mine 62 54 12 33
Step III : flow each drop root 73 thin mine 62 54 12 33 43
Step IV : mine flow each drop root 73 thin 54 12 33 43 62
Step V : root mine flow each drop 73 thin 12 33 43 62 54
Step VI : thin root mine flow each drop 12 33 43 62 54 73
2
What is the position of ‘drop’ to the left of ‘62’ in Step IV?
» Explain it
D
Input : root flow 33 43 each 73 thin mine 12 62 drop 54
Step I : drop root flow 33 43 each 73 thin mine 62 54 12
Step II : each drop root flow 43 73 thin mine 62 54 12 33
Step III : flow each drop root 73 thin mine 62 54 12 33 43
Step IV : mine flow each drop root 73 thin 54 12 33 43 62
Step V : root mine flow each drop 73 thin 12 33 43 62 54
Step VI : thin root mine flow each drop 12 33 43 62 54 73
3
How many element are there between ‘mine’ and 33’ in the last Step?
» Explain it
B
Input : root flow 33 43 each 73 thin mine 12 62 drop 54
Step I : drop root flow 33 43 each 73 thin mine 62 54 12
Step II : each drop root flow 43 73 thin mine 62 54 12 33
Step III : flow each drop root 73 thin mine 62 54 12 33 43
Step IV : mine flow each drop root 73 thin 54 12 33 43 62
Step V : root mine flow each drop 73 thin 12 33 43 62 54
Step VI : thin root mine flow each drop 12 33 43 62 54 73
4
Which is the fourth element to the left of the seventh element from the left end in the second-last step?
» Explain it
E
Fourth to the left of the seventh from the left = 7th – 4th = 3rd from the left end in the second-last step, ie 'flow'.

Input : root flow 33 43 each 73 thin mine 12 62 drop 54
Step I : drop root flow 33 43 each 73 thin mine 62 54 12
Step II : each drop root flow 43 73 thin mine 62 54 12 33
Step III : flow each drop root 73 thin mine 62 54 12 33 43
Step IV : mine flow each drop root 73 thin 54 12 33 43 62
Step V : root mine flow each drop 73 thin 12 33 43 62 54
Step VI : thin root mine flow each drop 12 33 43 62 54 73
5
