Explanation

1) For words arrangement- In each word we have to see the first letter and then the first letter which is lowest among all letters of given word according to English dictionary arranges first to left. For example word- act (a is the first letter and also lowest among all the first letter of given word). So “act” arranges first to left and this process is continued in further step.
2) For number arrangement– Numbers are arranged according to following condition. In first step lowest odd number arranges first to right. And this process is continued in further step until all the odd number is arranged in third step. In fourth step lowest even number is to be arranged. And this process is continued in further step until all the even number are arranged (Each odd number is added by one (+1) while they are arranged and each even number is subtracted by one (-1) while they are arranged).
