CAT 2020 Question Paper (Slot 3) Question 21

Question 21

Five jumbled up sentences, related to a topic, are given below. Four of them can beĀ put together to form a coherent paragraph. Identify the odd one out and key in theĀ number of the sentence as your answer:
1. Machine learning models are prone to learning human-like biases from theĀ training data that feeds these algorithms.
2. Hate speech detection is part of the on-going effort against oppressive andĀ abusive language on social media.
3. The current automatic detection models miss out on something vital: context.
4. It uses complex algorithms to flag racist or violent speech faster and better thanĀ human beings alone.
5. For instance, algorithms struggle to determine if group identifiers like "gay" orĀ "black" are used in offensive or prejudiced ways because they're trained onĀ imbalanced datasets with unusually high rates of hate speech.

Correct Answer: 3


On reading the statements, the arrangement (2)-(4)-(1)-(5) can be linked to form a paragraph, while Statement (3) stands out. Statements (2) and (4) talk about hate speech detection and the algorithms involved, while Statements (1) and (5) indicate the issue associated with the aforementioned algorithms. Hence, (3) is the odd one out.
