CAT Parajumble Practice Question 26

Question 26:

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

  1. The eventual diagnosis was skin cancer and after treatment all seemed well.
  2. The viola player didn’t know what it was; nor did her GP.
  3. Then a routine scan showed it had come back and spread to her lungs.
  4. It started with a lump on Cathy Perkins’ index finger.
Option: 4213

This is one of the easiest questions of CAT 18 VA. The clue to the sequence lies in the pronoun ‘it’, and in the phrase ‘had come back’, which suggests that it must have gone first, and then it must have come back. The pronoun ‘it’ refers to a disease, and is most likely to refer to the noun ‘skin cancer’. Also, we must look for that sentence in which ‘the skin cancer’ must have gone back. Sentence 1 has the noun ‘skin cancer’ and says that the treatment had gone well. This connects sentence 1 with 3. 13 is a pair. Statement 4 is likely to start the paragraph because it opens the idea by suggesting that something had started. So the idea goes like this: it started with a lump and no one knew what it was. Thus, 4 and 2 form a pair. After this must have come the diagnosis. Thus 4213 is the right sequence.
