# Sequential Output Tracing

### Description

Sequential output tracing contain a message comprising of random letters or words or numbers given as the data took after by steps of adjustments to give sequential output. The applicant is to follow out the example in the given course of action and after that locate the required output step as required by the directions given in the problems/questions.

### Concept

The following possible steps can be helpful to the candidate in order to determine the pattern in the given re-arrangement.
• Put the given numbers in increasing or decreasing manner.
• Make the given set of words in reverse order according to the steps.
• Arrange the given words towards the front or back alphabetical order.
• Organise the positions of words or numbers according to a set pattern.

### Model Problems

Model 1: An electronic gadget reworks numbers regulated in a specific request as indicated by an arrangement of standards. The gadget stops when the last result is obtained. For this situation the gadget stops at Step V. Input: 88 18 38 05 20 99 62 08 Step 1: 99 88 18 38 05 20 62 08 Step 2: 99 88 62 18 38 05 20 08 Step 3: 99 88 62 38 18 05 20 08 Step 4: 99 88 62 38 20 18 05 08 Step 5: 99 88 62 38 20 18 08 05 Then, answer the following questions: 1. Which of the following will be Step 3 for the input below? Input: 08 24 18 32 34 16 20 05 a) 34 32 24 08 18 16 20 05 b) 34 32 08 24 18 16 20 05 c) 34 08 24 18 32 16 20 05 d) 34 30 08 24 18 19 20 05 2. Which step is the last step for the input below? Input: 25 08 35 11 88 67 23 Solution:
1. Given Input: 08 24 18 32 34 16 20 05 Step 1: 34 08 24 18 32 16 20 05 Step 2: 34 32 08 24 18 16 20 05 Step 3: 34 32 24 08 18 16 20 05 So, option(a) is the correct answer. 2. Given Input: 16 09 25 27 06 05 Step 1: 27 16 09 25 06 05 Step 2: 27 25 16 09 06 05 Therefore, The whole given set of numbers arranged in descending order by step 2 itself. So, step 2 is the last step fro given input.
Model 2: A word arrangement machine, when given an input line of words, rearranges it in every step following a certain rule. Following is an illustration of an input line of words and various steps of rearrangement. Input: over go for through at one Step 1: for over go through at one Step 2: for go over through at one Step 3: for go one over through at Step 4: for go one at over through 1. Input: and do pet to on that What will be third step for this input? 2. Input: ink hurry yet for the victory What will be the last step of the above input? 3. Input: If step 4 of an input is 'violet for sour height journey medium', Which step would be step 2 of the given input? Solution:
1. Given that Input: and do pet to on that Step 1: pet and do to on that Step 2: pet and to do on that Step 3: pet and to on do that Therefore, output will be 'pet and to on do that' in step 3. 2. Given that Input: ink hurry yet for the victory Step 1: yet ink hurry for the victory Step 2: yet for ink hurry the victory Step 3: yet for victory ink hurry the Step 4: yet for victory hurry ink the Step 5: yet for victory hurry the ink Therefore, 'yet for victory hurry the ink' is the last step. 3. Given that Step 4: violet for sour height journey medium step 4 says that these words automatically came to its place during rearrangement, but each of them were replaced at one step. So, Step 2 must contain only 'violet' and 'for' in the first and second places, and each one of 'sour' and 'height' must lie at any place after 'jumping', so that each of them needs to be rearranged.
Model 3: 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. Input: in can 24 74 site 39 14 house Step 1: site in can 24 74 39 14 house Step 2: site 14 in can 24 74 39 house Step 3: site 14 can in 24 74 39 house Step 4: site 14 can 24 in 74 39 house Step 5: site 14 can 24 house in 74 39 Step 6: site 14 can 24 house 39 in 74 1. Input: tell to you 59 42 74 and 14 Which of the following will be step 3 for the above input? a) you 14 tell to 59 42 74 and b) you 14 to tell 59 42 74 and c) you 14 to 42 tell 59 74 and d) you 14 to 42 tell 59 and 74 e) None of these. 2. Step 3 of an input is: Red 14 ready 82 74 26 aim life How many more steps will be required to complete the rearrangement? 3. Step 4 of an input is: when 18 father 33 may know 57 41 How many more steps will be required to complete the rearrangement? Solution:
1. Given input: tell to you 59 42 74 and 14 Step 1: you tell to 59 42 74 and 14 Step 2: you 14 tell to 59 42 74 and Step 3: you 14 to tell 59 42 74 and Therefore, option(b) is the correct answer as step 3. 2. Given that: Step 3: red 14 ready 82 74 26 aim life Step 4: red 14 ready 26 82 74 aim life Step 5: red 14 ready 26 life 82 74 aim Step 6: red 14 ready 26 life 74 82 aim Step 7: red 14 ready 26 life 74 aim 82 Therefore, step 7 is the last step. So, there are four more steps of rearrangement. 3. Given step 4 of input: when 18 father 33 may know 57 41 Step 4: when 18 father 33 may know 57 41 Step 5: when 18 father 33 know may 57 41 Step 6: when 18 father 33 know 41 may 57 Therefore, step 6 is the last step. So, there are two more steps of rearrangement after step 6.
