how can we find the rank of a word in the dictionary?

To find the rank of a word in dictionary, we look at the number of words before it. For this, we look at the words starting with and then go down till the desired word. After the first alphabet, we move on to the second alphabet, and so on, counting the number of words formed by the arrangement of letters, and taking each combination as a different word.

For example: if we want to find the rank of the word "Ball" in the dictionary,

(i) X =  number of words starting with A.

(ii) Y = number of words starting with B, having a as second alphabet, and count the number of words till we get l as the third alphabet.

(iii) Z =  number of words till we have 4th alphabet as l.

Thus, rank of Ball = X + Y + Z
