Numbers are arranged such that in two continuous steps, it takes the smallest, then, again smallest from the rest (in step I and II), then in step III and IV it takes the greatest and then again the greatest from the rest. This process is repeated till the final arrangement.

Input: rain 92 29 heavy 68 flow 46 wind 19 cold 38 ice

Step I: 19 rain 92 29 heavy 68 flow 46 cold 38 ice wind

Step II: 29 19 92 heavy 68 flow 46 cold 38 ice wind rain

Step III: 92 29 19 heavy 68 flow 46 cold 38 wind rain ice

Step IV: 68 92 29 19 flow 46 cold 38 wind rain ice heavy

Step V: 38 68 92 29 19 46 cold wind rain ice heavy flow

Step VI: 46 38 68 92 29 19 wind rain ice heavy flow cold
