Solution (1-5):
Students let us understand the Logic behind this Question and let’s understand how to solve it. When we see the each step, then we can find that there is both number and words are arranged in each step.
(1) For words arrangement- Words are arranged according to ascending order as in English dictionary. In first step the words which come first according to English dictionary arranged first to extreme left. And in second step next word is to be arranged in extreme right.
And this process is continued in further step.
(2) For number arrangement- There are three odd numbers and three even numbers. In first step lowest odd number arranged in extreme right. And in second step lowest even number is to be arranged in extreme left. And this process is continued in further step. ( Each odd number is added by one(+1) while they are arranged and one is subtracted by each even number(-1) while they are arranged).
