5) None of these
Answer – 3) 70 61 48 39 36 11 19 25
Solution:
By observing the given input and output, some numbers are arranged in descending order in left end and some numbers are arranged in ascending order in right end.. From one step to the next step one operation takes place.
From input to step I, the largest number and second largest number is shifted to the left end.
From step I to step II, the smallest number and second smallest number is shifted to the right end. This process is continued until we get the desired output.
