    Which words are correct

    Hi, I have a few questions about the following sentence. Can I have some advice please.

    The following numbers have been mixed up. Arrange/rearrange them into/ in the correct category.

    Is it arrange OR rearrange. ( I *think* rearrange because they are mixed up?)

    Is it into OR in the (correct category) (into sounds better but I'm not sure)

    If it is 'in the correct category' - is it 'in the' OR 'in their correct category (this just came to mind but I'm sure it's 'the')

    Thank you very much

    "Rearrange" works better in this example because as you said, they've already been mixed up.

    "into" would also be a better option if you are rearranging and sorting them into the correct categories.

    in your last example, "their" and "the" both work equally well. :)

    I hope this helped!
