Question 161

# Which word/number would be the second to the left of the fifth element from theright in the Step III ?

Solution

The pattern here followed is that the largest number is placed first and the word with smallest first letter in the alphabetical order is placed last.

This series is continued till the numbers are all in ascending order and the words based on the first letter are also in ascending order.

INPUT : find 64 belt 28 54 lamp 17 give flat 69 real 95

Step I : 95 find 64 28 54 lamp 17 give flat 69 real belt

Step II : 69 95 64 28 54 lamp 17 give flat real belt find

Step III : 64 69 95 28 54 lamp 17 give real belt find flat

Step IV : 54 64 69 95 28 lamp 17 real belt find flat give

Step V : 28 54 64 69 95 17 real belt find flat give lamp

Step VI : 17 28 54 64 69 95 belt find flat give lamp real

Step VI is the output.

=> In step III, fifth element from the right = give

=> 2nd to the left of give = lamp
