Question 29

If step 2 of an input is “not is the casino considering legal action”, which step is: “not is casino action legal the considering”?

Solution

The arrangement is made by the last letter of each word.

The last letters of the seven words of the sample sequence input were e, s, d, n, g, t, and m.

In the final step, the words were arranged as t, s, n, m, g, d, and e, i.e., in descending order.

In each step, one letter was fixed in its last step position.

The last letters of the input are t, s, e, o, g, l, and n, and in the asked step, the letters are t, s, o, n, l, e, and g.

After the first step, the last letters of the pattern will be t, s, e, o, g, l, and n.

After the second step, the last letters of the pattern will be t, s, e, o, g, l, and n.

After the third step, the last letters of the pattern will be t, s, o, e, g, l, and n.

After the fourth step, the last letters of the pattern will be t, s, o, n, e, g, and l.

After the fifth step, the last letters of the pattern will be t, s, o, n, l, e, and g. Since this is the required pattern, the options do not give the correct answer.

Thus, the correct option is D.
