Question 107

The, sentences given in each question, when properly sequenced, form a coherent paragraph. Each sentence is labelled with a letter. Choose the most logical order of sentences from among the four given choices to construct a coherent paragraph.

A. This very insatiability of the photographing eye changes the terms of confinement in the cave, our world.

B. Humankind lingers unregenerately in Plato’s cave, still revelling, its age-old habit, in mere images of truth.

C. But being educated by photographs is not like being educated by older images drawn by hand; for one thing, there are a great many more images around, claiming our attention.

D. The inventory started in 1839 and since then just about everything has been photographed, or so it seems.

E. In teaching us a new visual code, photographs alter and enlarge our notions of what is worth looking at and what we have a right to observe.


B opens the paragraph by introducing the motion of ‘human being drawing images in cave’. C introduces the new means of image making, i.e. photography. The inventory in D refers to the images in C. ‘everything has been photographed’ in D should be followed by ‘insatiability’ in A. ‘confinement’ in A is then followed by ‘enlarge our notions’ in E.
