2) if the data in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question.

3) if the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question.

4) if the data in both statements I and II even together are not sufficient to answer the question.

5) if the data in both statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question

2 . Direction (2-5): A word and number arrangement machine when given an input line of words and numbers rearranges them following a particular rule and generates stepwise outputs till the arrangement is complete following that rule. Following is an illustration of input and steps of rearrangement till the last step:
