    Answer:

    II-V-III-I-VI-IV

    Explanation:

    1. In RNA splicing the mRNA is first cut at the 5′ splice site, present at the 5′ side of mRNA

    2. Then the intron folds back on itself and forms a lariat

    3. And then the guanine nucleotide in the consensus sequence at the 5′ splice site bonds with the adenine nucleotide  (A) at the branch point through a transesterification reaction
    .
    And both the 5′ cleavage and lariat formation occur in a single step

    4.  After that a cut is made at the 3′ splice site that cause  free of the intron.

    5. Then the  intron is released as in form of  a lariat.

    6. And then finally the two exons are spliced together and splicing has done.
