Input: win 56 32 93 bat for 46 him 2811 give chance
Step I: 93 56 32 bat for 46 him 28 11 give chance win

Solutions -The word and number arrangement machine rearranges the input with the logic that in step I, it shifts the largest number to the left-most place and the last word coming in English alphabetical series to the rightmost place. In step II, it shifts the smallest number to the leftmost place and the next word (in reverse alphabetical order) to the rightmost. In step III 2nd largest number is shifted to the leftmost place and so on.
Input : fun 89 at the 28 16 base camp 35 53 here 68
Step I : 89 fun at 28 16 base camp 35 53 here 68 the
