Answers (1-6): Numbers get arranged on both ends in odd numbered steps while words get arranged on the inner side in even-numbered steps till a particular pattern is formed. In Step I, the largest no goes on the left end and the second largest on the right end. In step II, .the first word in reverse alphabetical order (ie the last word in alphabetical order) comes on the left (just after the arranged number) and the second word in the reverse alphabetical order goes on the right (just before the arranged number).

In Step III: It is now the turn of numbers. The third largest goes on the left and the fourth largest on the right. Again, in Step IV, it's words. The third word in reverse alphabetical order goes to the left (just alter the arranged numbers and words) and the , fourth goes to the right (just before the arranged ones). And so on, alternately.
