# Input Output Set 36

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: tend 54 court 61 to 71 late 41 grip 24
Step I: 41 54 court 61 to 71 late grip 24 tend
Step II: 24 41 54 court 61 to 71 grip tend late
Step III: 61 24 41 54 court 71 grip tend late to
Step IV: 71 61 24 41 54 court tend late to grip
Step V: 54 71 61 24 41 tend late to grip court
Step V 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: our 18 has 71 been 51 no 41 interest 25

Explanation

For words → Word are arranged according to last letter of each word. So, we have to see the last letter of each word. In the given input series last letter of given words are- R, S, N, O and T. And then each last letter is arranged in alphabetical order(according to English dictionary) from right to left. In given input series N is least among all last letters so word “been” is arranged first.
For numbers→ for the number arrangement we have to add the digits of given number. And then each sum is arranged in ascending order from left to right.
Input:   our 18 has 71 been 51 no 41 interest 25
Step I:   41 our 18 has 71 51 no interest 25 been
Step II:  51 41 our 18 has 71 interest 25 been no
Step III:  25 51 41 18 has 71 interest been no our
Step IV:  71 25 51 41 18 interest been no our has
Step V:  18 71 25 51 41 been no our has interest
