CAT Parajumble Practice Question 18

Question 18:

The four sentences (labelled 1, 2, 3, 4) given below, when properly sequenced would yield a coherent paragraph. Decide on the proper sequence of the order of the sentences and key in the sequence of the four numbers as your answer.

  1. We’ll all live under mob rule until then, which doesn’t help anyone.
  2. Perhaps we need to learn to condense the feedback we receive online so that 100 replies carry the same weight as just one.
  3. As we grow more comfortable with social media conversations being part of the way we interact every day, we are going to have to learn how to deal with legitimate criticism.
  4. A new norm will arise where it is considered unacceptable to reply with the same point that dozens of others have already.
Option: 3241
Explanation:

Statement 3 opens the idea by saying that we need to learn how to deal with legitimate criticism.

By fixing the position of 1, we can arrange the sentences in the right order. 1 says ‘we will all live under mob rule until then…’ To what does this then refer? It must refer to some specific time or event. It refers to the time till we have new norm (read statement 4). A new norm will arise… we will have to live under a mob rule until then… Thus 4 and 1 form a pair. 2 cannot come after 1, nor does it open the para. The best place for 2 is after 3. Thus the right sequence is 3241.
