## SOT – Practice set 3

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: 37 enemy 25 joy defeat 52 yes 46

Step I: 25 37 enemy joy defeat 52 yes 46

Step I: 25 yes 37 enemy 25 joy defeat 52 46

Step III: 25 yes 37 joy enemy defeat 52 46

Step IV: 25 yes 37 joy 46 enemy defeat 52

Step V: 25 yes 37 joy 46 enemy 52 defeat

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.
