Step VII is the last step of the above input; as the desired arrangement is obtained. As per rules followed in the above steps, find out in each of the following questions the appropriate step for the given input.
Input: idiot 19 simple 121 bold 15 49 Justice 16 rat 64 3 feather time

 

Explanation

i) The machine rearranges one word and one number in each step.
ii) the words are arranged in alphabetical order
iii) while for numbers, perfect square and non-perfect square come in each alternate step in ascending order starting from the number which is a perfect square.

Now lets take the arrangement given in the Question
Input: idiot 19 simple 121 bold 15 49 Justice 16 rat 64 3 feather time

Step I: bold 16 idiot 19 simple 121 15 49 Justice rat 64 3 feather time
Step II: bold 16 feather 3 idiot 19 simple 121 15 49 Justice rat 64 time
Step III: bold 16 feather 3 idiot 49 19 simple 121 15 Justice rat 64 time 
Step IV: bold 16 feather 3 idiot 49 Justice 15 19 simple 121 rat 64 time
Step V: bold 16 feather 3 idiot 49 Justice 15 rat 64 19 simple 121 time
Step VI: bold 16 feather 3 idiot 49 Justice 15 rat 64 simple 19 121 time
Step VII: bold 16 feather 3 idiot 49 Justice 15 rat 64 simple 19 time 121
