B) 67

C) 88

D) 60

E) Other than options given

- What is the second smallest number obtained in any step of given input?

A) 2

B) 2.5

C) 4

D) 3

E) 3.5

- Find the difference between sum of numbers obtained in 1st step and sum of numbers obtained in all other steps.

A) 52

B) 67

C) 89

D) 72

E) 76

- What is the difference between the second largest number and the smallest number obtained in any steps?

A) 64

B) 108

C) 95

D) 82

E) 71

- What is the average of numbers obtained in last 2 steps?

A) 4

B) 5

C) 3

D) 7

**Directions (6 – 10): Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below. **

A number arrangement machine when given an input of words/numbers, rearranges them following a particular rule in each step. The following is an illustration of input and steps of rearrangement.

Input: ancient 16 draft upper 52 39 earn portal 63 32 hence 21

Step 1: upper ancient draft 52 39 earn portal 63 32 hence 21 18

Step 2: 22 upper ancient draft 52 39 earn 63 32 hence 18 portal

Step 3: earn 22 upper ancient draft 52 39 63 hence 18 portal 34

Step 4: 40 earn 22 upper ancient draft 52 63 18 portal 34 hence

Step 5: ancient 40 earn 22 upper draft 63 18 portal 34 hence 54

Step 6: 64 ancient 40 earn 22 upper 18 portal 34 hence 54 draft

This is the final arrangement and step 6 is the last step for this input.

**Input: 68 occupy 23 55 factor early 22 kind 34 ideal 17 safe**

- How many words/numbers are between ‘ideal’ and ‘factor’ in step 5?

A) 3

B) 5

C) 2

D) 6

E) 4

- Which word/number is second to left of fifth element from the right end in step 4?

A) safe

B) factor

C) 68

D) 55

E) early

- In step 6, ‘early’ is related to ‘18’ in the same way as in step 3, ‘68’ is related to ‘factor’. Now in step 5, ‘factor’ is related to what in the same way?

A) kind

B) safe

C) 24

D) occupy

E) None of these

- In which of the following step numbers do words ‘68 55 factor 24’ occur together?

A) 9

B) 4

C) 6

D) 5

E) There is no such step

- What is the sum of numbers which is 4th from left end in step 3 and which is 5th from right end in step 5?

A) 71

B) 84

C) 67

D) 92

E) None of these
