CAT 2019 Verbal Ability Questions with Answers and Explanations

Question:
Five sentences related to a topic are given below. Four of them can be put together to form a meaningful and coherent short paragraph. Identify the odd one out. Choose its number as your answer and key it in.

1. Ocean plastic is problematic for a number of reasons, but primarily because marine animals eat it.

2. The largest numerical proportion of ocean plastic falls in small size fractions.

3. Aside from clogging up the digestive tracts of marine life, plastic also tends to adsorb pollutants from the water column.

4. Plastic in the oceans is arguably one of the most important and pervasive environmental problems today.

5. Eating plastic has a number of negative consequences such as the retention of plastic particles in the gut for longer periods than normal food particles.

Show Answer
OPTION: 2

We believe that this was an easy question. statement 5 “the retention of

plastic particles in the gut” and “Aside from clogging up the digestive tracts” in statement 3 can be connected together. Thus 53 form a pair. 1 must come before 53 because it talks about marine animals eating the plastic. So we have 153 in sequence. 4 introduces the idea by talking about plastic and the environmental problem it brings with itself. So we have 4153 in sequence, with option 2 becoming the odd one out.
