(a) The group of Egyptians provided answers to all his questions as they were impressed by the visitor’s keen observation and intellectual curiosity.
(b) From time time he glanced at the map in his guide book to make sure that he was following them accurately.
(c) All these efforts were directed towards his goal to write a book on the various places he saw and the people he met.

(e) Back in his room he industriously set down his facts and his impression in an elaborated file of notes.
(f) Repeatedly he interrupted with pertinent questions about Egyptian antiquities or local customs or the latest crisis in the Middle East.

Question 194

Which of the following would be the SECOND sentence after rearrangement ?


Sentence D starts the para as it introduces the writer who was listening to group of Egyptians. F and A should come together as F talks about the writer asking Egptians questions and A talks about Egyptians answering them. Since all remaining sentences suggest that the author is in his room, FA should follow D. E should come in next as it tells that the author set all the facts that he collected while talking to Egyptians in his file of notes. E is followed by B which suggests that he verified the data with his guide book. Finally, C concludes the para by stating the reasons why the writer had been up to these activities. So, the sequence is DFAEBC.

Thus, the second sentence is F.
