We have the cards numbered from 1 to 9 arranged in a certain order. A *move* is defined as interchanging a numbered cardx with the card labelled 1. An arrangement is said to be *rectifiable* if it is possible to arrange the cards in descending order by a sequence of moves.

(1) Consider the premutation $9,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8$. Atleast 8 or more moves required to get in the orginal order.

(IV) There exists a sequence of $1, 2, …, 9$ which is not rectifiable?
