                   Introduction
• Linear fashion means arrangement in a row.
• Analyze the problem and arrange it.
• Find the direct condition and start to solve, because the
  remaining conditions are based on the direct condition.
• No condition for the particular item, shows their is possibility
  in answer.
• Draw a Shape which is given in the question and arrange them
  according to the conditions given.
