Step-I: 550 280 345 36 93 147 25
Step-II: 550 345 280 36 93 147 25
Step-III: 550 345 280 147 93 36 25
Step III is the last step for this input.
What will be the third step for the following input?
Input: 113 18 48 225 462 175 288

A 462 288 48 225 113 175 18

Observe the first one carefully you will find that they are arranged in ascending order in each step so you will do same in this and your answer will be C option

If you see step 3 carefully then it rearranges the input in DESCENDING ORDER and the if you do it with input 2 then you will find B as the answer not D!!
