Directions (6 - 10): In each question below, a group of digits/ symbols is given
followed by four combinations of letters numbered 1, 2, 3 and 4. You have to find
out which of the combinations 1, 2, 3 and 4 correctly represents the group of digits/
symbols based on the following coding system and the conditions that follow and
mark the number of that combination as your answer. If none of the four correctly
represents the group of digits/ symbols, mark 5. i.e. 'None of these', as the answer.

of input and rearrangement (All the numbers are two-digit numbers).
Input: pink for 25 72 white jar 12 96
Step I: 96 pink for 25 72 white jar 12
Step II: 96 for pink 25 72 white jar 12
Step III: 96 for 72 pink 25 white jar 12
Step IV: 96 for 72 jar pink 25 white 12
Step V: 96 for 72 jar 25 pink white 12
