Here finding the starting statement is a problem. So we first find link among the given statements. From statement B we can see the word ‘it’ , so it must refer to some statement before. From statement E we can see that ‘it’ refers to modern finance. Out of other statements , correct order is DCA ,as A concludes. Hence , option B.

E is the best opening sentence. It introduces the main idea of the passage. C continues the idea introduced by E. A follows by talking about people who laze around and do nothing. This is followed by D which talks about people who work. This statement is followed by further description in statements B and F. The correct order of sentences is ECADBF.

A is the best opening sentence. It talks about the nature of violence being clearly defined. This is followed by C, which talks about an exception to the theory mentioned in A. C is followed by D and B is the best concluding statement. The correct order of sentences is, therefore, ACDB.

Statement B introduces the subject of the paragraph – “Ambassadors”. Hence, it should be the opening sentence of the paragraph.

The main point of the paragraph is that Ambassadors need to carefully weigh their words so that their vision is acceptable to the locals of the country.

Statement A says that the ambassador’s vision of the country should not run beyond that of the local people and D adds to this thought by saving as a result of this necessity there is an ambivalence in their behaviour. C explains how this ambivalence is exhibited by them. Hence, A-D-C are logically connected.

Statement E which introduces the specialized nature of their job acts a connecting line between B and ADC. Hence, the order is BEADC.

D introduces the paragraph. B elaborates on the idea mentioned in D. So, B follows D. This is then followed by A, which continues the idea of D-B. C is the concluding sentence. The correct order of sentences is DBAC. Option c) is the correct answer.

B is the best opening sentence – it introduces the topic of the paragraph, advertising. This is followed by C which talks about the overall effectiveness and then by D which talks about individual effectiveness. The last sentence is A. Option c) is the correct answer.

The opening sentence of the paragraph is C – it introduces the person being talked about in the paragraph. This is followed by sentence A. It continues talking about the ‘eyeballs’ mentioned in C. From the options, we see that the only possibility is option c).
