Directions : Given below are six sentence (A), (B), (C), (D), (E) and (F) which may not be in the logical sequence. Rearrange the sentences to form a meaningful paragraph and wer the questions that follows.
(A) “The seat-sharing arrangement with the BJP is in the final and last stage… It will be announced soon,” JD(U) Rajya Sabha member R.C.P. Singh told journalists after a four-hour State executive meeting on Sunday.
(B) JD(U) sources said the BJP had assured the party of 15 of the 40 seats. The other NDA allies, Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) and Lok Jhakti Party (LJP), have been demanding early finalization of seat-sharing.
(C) Leaders of the ruling Janata Dal (United) in Bihar said seat-sharing talks for the 2019 Lok Sabha poll with the BJP were in the last stage, and a deal would be announced soon.
(D) Mr. Singh is considered close to JD(U) president and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. “The JD(U) will give priority to the youth in ticket distribution,” he added.
(E) He said workers would be trained from the booth level.
(F) Mr. Singh said the executive discussed how to strengthen and expand the organization.
Which among the followings is the SIXTH sentence of the rearranged paragraph?
The final sequence is CADBFE. (C) provides the introduction for the paragraph ‘seat-sharing talks between the BJP and the JD (U)’. Hence, it should be the first sentence of the coherent paragraph. (A) introduces a JD (U) leader Mr. R.C.P. Singh which the statements (D), (E) and (F), which mention or refer to Mr. Singh, don’t. So, (A) must precede the statements (D), (E) and (F). Now, among (A) and (B), which one should be the second sentence of the paragraph? The statement (A) quotes the leader who reiterates the theme of the paragraph “The seat-sharing arrangement with the BJP is in the final and last stage…” So, (A) qualifies (C) better than (B). So, (A) should be the second sentence. Which one should be the third sentence? The statement (D) qualifies Mr. Singh, and so, it should immediately follow (A) because (A) introduces R.C.P. Singh. So, (D) should be the THIRD sentence. Hence, we get the sub-sequence CAD. The statement F starts with ‘Mr. Singh’, while the statement (E) starts with a pronoun ‘He’. A pronoun usually appears only after its antecedent is introduced. The statement (F) introduces Mr. Singh while the statement (E) uses the pronoun ‘he’. Now, thinks, what would be the need to reintroduce Mr. Singh when he is already introduced and appears till the statement D?
Such need would only arise only when a sentence introduces something completely different aspect to the paragraph without mentioning and/or referring to Mr. Singh. That sentence is (B). So, (B) should be the Fourth sentence. After the appearance of (B) as the fourth sentence, there would be a need to reintroduce Mr. Singh to convey the additional information conveyed by Mr. Singh. Now, among (F) and (E), we have already decided why (F) should be the FIFTH sentence (because, it re-introduces Mr. Singh). Now, (E) must be the LAST sentence. Hence, the final sequence is CADBFE. Therefore, option (d) is the most suitable wer choice
