# Mixed Reasoning Questions for Upcoming Exams – Set 210

1. Directions: A word and number arrangement machine, when given an input line of words and numbers, rearranges them following a particular rule in each step. The following is an illustration of input and rearrangement.

Input: fire 76 for 53 fauna 14 favour 27 freedom 36
Step1: 78 fauna fire for 53 14 favour 27 freedom 36
Step2: 51 favour 78 fauna fire for 14 27 freedom 36
Step3: 38 freedom 51 favour 78 fauna fire for 14 27
Step4: 25 fire 38 freedom 51 favour 78 fauna for 14
Step5: 16 for 25 fire 38 freedom 51 favour 78 fauna

Find the different steps of output using the above mentioned logic for the following input.

Input: prison 24 pirates 61 proxy 70 prone 53 prejudice 17

1. Which of the following steps is the step 3 of the given input?

51 prone prison 59 pirates 72 prejudice 24 proxy 17
59 pirates 72 prejudice prison 24 proxy prone 53 17
51 prison 59 pirates 72 prejudice 24 proxy prone 17
prison 59 pirates 72 prejudice 24 proxy 51 prone 17
none of these
Option C
The given output is obtained by following the below mentioned logic:

Change in Word: Words are selected on the basis of decreasing order of number of vowels within a word i.e. The word with highest number of vowels is considered first, if there are more than one word with same number of vowels then preference is given to the word that comes first as per dictionary order. Words are placed at the left end.

Change in Number: Numbers are seleceted on the basis of descending order. If the number is an even number then change it by adding 2 to it and shift to the extreme left end. If the number is an odd number then change it by subtracting 2 from it and shift it to the extreme left end.

Note: Changes in word and number take place simultaneously at each step.

2. Which of the following is third to the right of the one which is third from the left end in step1?
53
pirates
proxy
61
prone
Option D

3. Which of the following comes exactly between ‘prone’ and ‘pirates’ in step 4?

Option B

4. In which of the following steps ‘prison 59 pirates’ is seen in the same sequence for the first time?
step1
step 2
step 3
step 4
step 5
Option C

5. What is the difference between the sum of all the prime numbers and the sum of all the even numbers in step 2?
29
26
31
33
35
Option D

Both conclusion I and II follow
Option E

7. Statements: M > X = G ≥ H ≥ L; P < O ≤ V < L Conclusions: I. M > P II. G ≥ L
only conclusion I follows
only conclusion II follows
Either conclusion I or II follows
Neither conclusion I nor II follows
Both conclusion I and II follow
Option E

8. Statements: Y > U ≥ V ≤ W; J ≥ G ≥ H = Y

Conclusions: I. G > W II. W ≥ G

only conclusion I follows
only conclusion II follows
Either conclusion I or II follows
Neither conclusion I nor II follows
Both conclusion I and II follow
Option C
