Question 28

The five sentences labelled (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) given in this question, when properly sequenced, form a coherent paragraph. Each sentence is labelled with a number. Decide on the proper order for the sentences and key in this sequence of FIVE NUMBERS as your answer.

1: The implications of retelling of Indian stories, hence, takes on new meaning in a modern India.
2. The stories we tell reflect the world around us.
3. We cannot help but retell the stories that we value — after all, they are never quite right for us — in our time. 

4. And even if we manage to get them quite right, they are only right for us — other people living around us will have different reasons for telling similar stories.

5. As soon as we capture a story, the world we were trying to capture has changed.

Correct Answer: 25341


Sentence 2, which introduces the topic of what stories tell, must be the starting sentence. Sentence 5 elaborates on sentence 2. Hence sentence 5 logically follows sentence 2. According to the sentence 3, the stories we retell are never quite right for us. Sentence 4 elaborates on what if we get the stories quite right. Hence, 3-4 forms a pair which must come after sentence 5. Sentence 1 which concludes the topics of discussion must be the ending sentence. Hence, 25341 is the right answer.
