    of them weakens the conclusion. Choice (b) states that the new products can be manufactured and they also last longer. This information strengthens the conclusion. According to choice (d) the procurement and storage costs are very high. This casts a doubt on the conclusion that the cost of clerical job can be decreased by using these new products. Hence, (d) weakens the
    conclusion. 4. Choose the correct alternative that will continue the same pattern and

    6. Study the following information carefully and answer the given questions:
    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: 39 121 48 18 76 112 14 45 63 96
    Step I: 14 39 121 48 18 76 112 45 63 96
    Step II: 14 39 48 18 76 112 45 63 96 121

    Step VI: 14 18 39 45 48 63 76 96 112 121
    This is the final arrangement and step VI is the last step for this input. How many steps will be required for getting the final output for the following input?

    ascendingorder and that will be that last step for that particular input.

    Courses of Action:
    I. The species of animals, which are on the verge of extinction, must be protected by creating wild life sanctuaries which contain flora that defines the native habitat of the endangered animals.
    II. To the maximum extent possible we should stop deforestation.
    III. Growing urban forests to compensate for deforestation. A. Only II follows
    B.Only III follows
    C.Only I and II follow
    D. Only I and follows
    Answer: Option C
    Here the problem is extinction of various species of animals, so providing themtheir native habitat is the proper solution for the problem.
    II is a proper course of action, as stopping deforestation can solve the problem to some extent.
    III is not a proper course of action as urban forest cannot be the habitat
    for the wild animals. From the first two statements, we know that of the three classes, Class A
    has the highest enrollment, so the third statement must be false.
