CAT 1998 Question Paper

Question 102

Arrange sentences A, B, C and D between sentences 1 and 6 to form a logical sequence of six sentences.

1. Good literary magazines have always been good because of their editors.

A. Furthermore, to edit by committee, as it were, would prevent any magazine from finding its own identity.

B. The more quirky and idiosyncratic they have been, the better the magazine is, at least as a general rule.

C. But the number of editors one can have for a magazine should also be determined by the number of contributions to it.

D. To have four editors for an issue that contains only seven contributions, it is a bit silly to start with.

6. However, in spite of this anomaly, the magazine does acquire merit in its attempt to give a comprehensive view of the Indian literary scene as it is today.

Solution

The first sentence talks about magazines. The same idea is continued in sentence B. Hence, B follows the first sentence.

CD is a pair because the "number of editors" concept is introduced in C and then an example is taken in D. 

Hence, BCDA is the answer.
