    stringarray = array[1 .. 8] of string ;

    function alphabetise (a : stringarray) : string ;

    i, min : integer ;
    min := 1 ;
    for i := 1 to 8 do
    if a[i] < a[min] then
    min := i ;
    alphabetise := a[min] ;
    end ;

    b : stringarray ;
    i : integer ;
    for i := 1 to 8 do
    readln (b[i]) ;
    writeln ;
    writeln (alphabetise(b)) ;
