4) Can’t be determined
5) None of these

Solution :-

Here the rule followed is:

Step I: The smallest number becomes first and the remaining numbers shift one position rightward. [In case the first number is small then the next number just larger than  it will become second and the rest will shift one position rightward and so on.]

Step II : The largest number among given numbers becomes last and the remaining numbers shift one position leftward. [In case the largest number is first from the right end, the second largest number replaces the second number from the right end, and so on.]

These steps are repeated alternately till all the numbers get arranged in ascending order and that will be the last step for that particular input.
