3. Then, while the pharmacist was wrapping up a six-ounce bottle of the mixture, I groaned and inquired whether he could give me something for acute gastric cramp.

4. I intended to stage a sharp gastric attack, and entering an old-fashioned pharmacy, I asked for a popular shampoo mixture, consisting of olive oil and flaked soap.

Correct Answer: 4321


A, B and C cannot be the first sentence of the paragraph because of the pronouns and the situational phrases(of the situations that are not described yet) used=> D is the opening sentence of the paragraph.

As a result of the author asking for a shampoo mixture, the pharmcist wrapped a six-ounce bottle. The idea is continued in sentence C => C follows D.

As a result of the author asking for something for acute gastric cramp, the pharmacist shuffled away into the back regions. => B follows C.

Hence, DCBA is the answer.
