Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!!
Several answers, and some went so far as to say that the answer was ‘port’, despite the blatant clue in point IV!
The answer is anagram. By definition, an anagram is a form of wordplay wherein the alphabets in a word or a phrase are rearranged to make another meaningful word or phrase.
There are various types of anagrams, like anugrams, anigrams or even pangrams! More info here.
As for the clues given above:
I. Anagrams : ars magna
II. Kyoto : Tokyo
III. Kartasura : Surakarta
IV. Magna Carta : Anagram Act
V. Port of Spain : Sport of Pain
Additional Info: May 12 is International Nurses’ Day, celebrated on the birthday of Florence Nightingale. Her name’s anagram is Flit on, cheering angel!
