Question 122

Arrange the sentences A, B, C and D in a proper sequence so as to make a coherent paragraph.

A. But the last decade has witnessed greater voting and political participation by various privileged sections.

C. If this trend offsets the mid-term poll fatigue, the fall may not be so steep.

D. Notwithstanding a good deal of speculation on this issue, it is still not clear as to who benefits from a lower turnout.
