Input Output 26

Directions (1-5): Study the following information to answer the given questions:
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. (All the numbers are two-digit numbers and all are arranged as per some logic based on the value of the number.)
Input: win 56 32 93 bat for 46 him 28 11 give chance
Step I: 93 56 32 bat for 46 him 28 11 give chance win
Step II: 11 93 56 32 bat for 46 28 give chance win him
Step III: 56 11 93 32 bat for 46 28 chance win him give
Step IV: 28 56 11 93 32 bat 46 chance win him give for
Step V: 46 28 56 11 93 32 bat win him give for chance
Step VI: 32 46 28 56 11 93 win him give for chance bat
Step VI is the last step of the arrangement the above input.
As per the rules followed in the above steps, find out in each of the following questions the appropriate steps for the given input.
Input: fun 89 at the 28 16 base camp 35 53 here 68

 

Explanation

Solution (1-5):
The word and number arrangement machine rearranges the input with the logic that in step I, it shifts the largest number to the left-most place and the last word coming in English alphabetical series to the rightmost place. In step II, it shifts the smallest number to the leftmost place and the next word (in reverse alphabetical order) to the rightmost. In step III 2nd largest number is shifted to the leftmost place and so on.

Input: fun 89 at the 28 16 base camp 35 53 here 68
Step I: 89 fun at 28 16 base camp 35 53 here 68 the
Step II: 16 89 fun at 28 base camp 35 53 68 the here
Step III: 68 16 89 at 28 base camp 35 53 the here fun
Step IV: 28 68 16 89 at base 35 53 the here fun camp
Step V: 53 28 68 16 89 at 35 the here fun camp base
Step VI: 35 53 28 68 16 89 the here fun camp base at
