## SOT – Practice set 2

D.1-5) Read the following information carefully and answer the given questions.

A word arrangement machine, when give an input as a set of words, rearranges the following a particular rule and generates stepwise outputs till the rearrangement is complete following that rule.

Following is an illustration of input and steps of rearrangement till the last step.

Input: Story for around on was he at

Step I: was Story for around on he at

Step II: was Story on for around he at

Step III: was Story on he for around at

Step IV: was Story on he for at around

And step IV is the last step of the above arrangement as the intended arrangement is obtained. As per the rules followed in the given steps, find out the appropriate steps for the given input.

D.6-10) Read the following information carefully and answer the given questions.

A word-number arrangement machine, when give an input as a set of words and numbers, rearranges the following a particular rule and generates stepwise outputs till the rearrangement is complete following that rule.

Following is an illustration of input and steps of rearrangement till the last step.

Input: 49 box store 84 63 on door 37

Step I: box 49 store 84 63 on door 37

Step II: box 84 49 store 63 on door 37

Step III: box 84 door 49 store 63 on 37

Step IV: box 84 door 63 49 store on 37

Step V: box 84 door 63 on 49 store 37

And step V is the last step of the above arrangement as the intended arrangement is obtained. As per the rules followed in the given steps, find out the appropriate steps for the given input.
