Step VII: 76 65 56 46 42 32 22 angel ego upper dig hide point wood
And Step VII is the last step of the above input, as the desired arrangement is obtained.
As per the hides followed in the above steps, find out in each of the following questions the appropriate step for the given input.
Input: 86 youth hammer 18 34 user enter ocean ink 44 25 mock 63 98
(All the numbers are two digits numbers).

1.Which of the following represents the position of ‘youth’ in the sixth step?

A.Ninth from the left

B.Fifth from the right

C.Sixth from the left

D.Seventh from the left

E.Seventh from the right

D. Seventh from the left

In the given illustration:
1) Numbers are arranged in descending order.
2) In case of words first vowels are arranged in ascending order followed by consonants in ascending order as per their position in dictionary.
3) A word and number is arranged simultaneously in each step.

In first step, the lowest number is arranged at left most position i.e. at first position and lowest vowel as per dictionary is arranged at right most position i.e. at last position of the sentence. Both word and number are arranged simultaneously and else all are shifted accordingly.

In step 2 next lowest number is placed again at first position i.e. immediate left to the previously arranged number and next lowest vowel/consonant is placed at last position i.e. immediate right to previously arranged word and else all are shifted accordingly.
The same process is followed till all the words and numbers are rearranged as all numbers at left side in decreasing order and all words first according to vowel than according to consonant at right side of the lowest number in increasing order as per dictionary.
Now given input is: 86 youth hammer 18 34 user enter ocean ink 44 25 mock 63 98

3) A word and number is arranged simultaneously in each step.

In first step, the lowest number is arranged at leftmost position i.e. at first position and lowest vowel as per dictionary is arranged at rightmost position i.e. at last position of the sentence. Both word and number are arranged simultaneously and else all are shifted accordingly.
In step 2 next lowest number is placed again at first position i.e. immediate left to the previously arranged number and next lowest vowel/consonant is placed at last position i.e. immediate right to previously arranged word and else all are shifted accordingly.
The same process is followed till all the words and numbers are rearranged as all numbers at left side in decreasing order and all words first according to vowel than according to consonant at right side of the lowest number in increasing order as per dictionary.
Now given input is: 86 youth hammer 18 34 user enter ocean ink 44 25 mock 63 98

Step VII: 98 86 63 44 34 25 18 enter ink ocean user hammer mock youth
Step VII is the last step of the given input.

Thus step VI is the penultimate step.
Here 3 number from left end is 44 and 6 number from left end is 18.
Difference between 44 and 18 is 26.
Thus difference between 3 number from left end and 6 number from left end in penultimate step is 63-25= 38.

In the given illustration:
Numbers and Words are arranged simultaneously.
In the first step, the smallest number and the smallest word according to the dictionary are arranged at the 1 and 2 position. And the rest of the numbers are shifted accordingly.
Then the second smallest number and the second smallest word are arranged after the smallest number and smallest word respectively. This means the second smallest number will be in 2 position and the smallest word will be in 3 position now. The rest of the numbers are shifted.
This continues till all the numbers and words are arranged so that first the numbers are arranged in ascending order then the words are arranged in ascending order. Now given input is:
Input:        king 45 77 edge 82 39 back 50 44 cage pad square
Step I:       39 back king 45 77 edge 82 50 44 cage pad square
