Directions : Rearrange the following six sentences A, B, C, D, E and F in the proper sequence to form a meaningful paragraph; then answer the questions given below them.

A: If China is the world's factory, India has become the world's outsourcing centre keeping in line with this image.

B: But India's future depends crucially on its ability to compete fully in the Creative Economy not just in tech and software, but across design and entrepreneurship; arts, culture and entertainment; and the knowledge-based professions of medicine, finance and law.

C: While its creative assets outstrip those of other emerging competitors, India must address several challenges to increase its international competitiveness as the world is in the midst of a sweeping transformation.

D: This transformation is evident in the fact that the world is moving from an industrial economy to a Creative Economy that generates wealth by harnessing intellectual labour, intangible goods and human creative capabilities.

E: Its software industry is the world's second-largest, its tech outsourcing accounts for more than half of the $300 billion global industry, according to a technology expert.

F: If the meeting of world leaders at Davos is any indication, India is rapidly becoming an economic 'rock star'.

Question 219

Which of the following should be the FIRST sentence after the rearrangement?


Sentence F, which introduces the topic under discussion i.e. India's position in the world economy, should be the starting sentence. We see that "this image" in A references "rockstar" in F. Hence, F-A are a pair. E logically continues with the chain of thought and should come next.

We see that C-D are a pair where the transformation mentioned in C is referenced in D as "this transformation". B is the logical connective between FAE and CD. It tells how India needs to evolve for the changing needs of the future. Hence, the correct order is FAEBCD.

Hence F is the first sentence.
