Question 101

Select the correct sequence of the four sentences given below.
A. The age of pragmatism is here, whether we like it or not.
B. The staple rhetoric that was for so long dished out also belongs to the bipolar world of yesterday.
C. The old equations, based on the cold war and on non-alignment no longer holds good.
D. But contrary to much of what is being said and written, it is a multipolar rather than unipolar world that appears to be emerging out of recent events.

Solution

This is further explained in B. So, B follows D. The concluding sentence is C. So, the order of sentences is ADBC. Option c) is the correct answer.
