Question 115

Arrange the following sentences to form a coherent paragraph

A. By reasoning we mean the mental process of drawing an inference from two or more statements or going from the inference to the statements, which yield that inference.

B. So logical reasoning covers those types of questions, which imply drawing an inference from the problems.

C. Logic means, if we take its original meaning, the science of valid reasoning.

D. Clearly, for understanding arguments and for drawing the inference correctly, it is necessary that we should understand the statements first.


C is the best opening sentence. It introduces the topic of the paragraph - logic. This is followed by A, which goes on to explain the meaning of reasoning. This is then followed by B, which explains 'logical reasoning'. The concluding sentence is D. The correct order of sentences is CABD. Option b) is the correct answer.
