Solution

1.From the expression R > O = A > S < T, two conclusions are made
i) R > O > S < T
ii)R > A > S < T
hence, S < R is true.

2.P > L ? A ≥ N = T
in order to satisfy the conditions P > A and T ≤ L, the symbol must be ≥

3.In order to satisfy the both conditions, the expression should be
B > L = O = N ≥ D

4.P < N < A > L
so, A < P is false.

5.F < O = U = N < D
so, F > N and U > D become false.

(6-10):
The given information follows the dictionary order in case of words and in case of numbers it follows ascending order.
6.By observing the various step of the given input, it can be concluded that, in input there are total seven words and for each step the words are arranged in dictionary.
Input: 32 proud girl beautiful 48 55 97 rich family 61 72 17 nice life
Step I: beautiful 17 32 proud girl 48 55 97 rich family 61 72 nice life
Step II: family 32 beautiful 17 proud girl 48 55 97 rich 61 72 nice life
Step III: girl 48 family 32 beautiful 17 proud 55 97 rich 61 72 nice life
Step IV: life 55 girl 48 family 32 beautiful 17 proud 97 rich 61 72 nice
Step V: nice 61 life 55 girl 48 family 32 beautiful 17 proud 97 rich 72
Step VI: proud 72 nice 61 life 55 girl 48 family 32 beautiful 17 97 rich
Step VII: rich 97 proud 72 nice 61 life 55 girl 48 family 32 beautiful 17
Hence total seven steps are required to complete the given input.

7.From step VI third element from the left is ‘nice’

8.Step III: girl 48 family 32 beautiful 17 proud 55 97 rich 61 72 nice life

9.Final step i.e, 7th step from left the word ‘nice’ is at fifth position.

10.Step V: nice 61 life 55 girl 48 family 32 beautiful 17 proud 97 rich 72
Hence third element to the right of family is 17
