Question 89

If Step VI reads, ‘the best way of promoting our nation’, what will be the arrangement of the input ?


Step 5 would be : cannot sorry feel him but for one.

Step 6 would be : sorry cannot him feel one for but.

If the step 6 was: the best way of promoting our nation

"sorry" the first word in the 6th step was at the 5th position in the sentence. 

Similarly "the" must be at the 5th position. Only sentence 3 has "the" in the 5th position. Hence, it is the correct answer.
