Question 38

Arrange the sentences in the most logical order to form a coherent paragraph. From the given options (A, B, C, D) choose the most appropriate option.
(i) But state efforts to build up the data sector in rural areas have resulted in a plethora of under-used sites. 
(ii) At the same time, data centres in main cities are already running at capacity. In Beijing and Shanghai, demand outstrips supply by 20 and 25 per cent, respectively, according to the ministry. 
(iii) There are twice as many data centres in north-eastern China than required, according to figures from China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. 
(iv) Tech groups have been given incentives by Chinese regulators to set up their onshore data storage in poorer, more remote areas, with inducements such as free land and cheap power.


After going through the sentence, we can understand that the paragraph talks about setting up data centres in China.

Sentence 4 which talks about setting up data centres in poorer remote areas sets up the context Hence this can be the opening sentence.
Sentence 1 which refutes the sentence 4 can be its continuation.
Sentence 1 and 3 are pairs as they talk about the data centres in main cities.
Sentence 2 talks about the number of data centres in China concludes the paragraph.
Hence the correct sequence is 4132.

A is the correct answer.
