Answers & Solutions:
1) Answer (B)
We see a link between the statements B-E-A. B introduces the subjects that were taught, E states that they were not expected to learn anything more and A states why there were not asked to learn anything else. Hence BEA is one block within the paragraph. There is a link between D and C where D introduces the boys as the subjects of the paragraph and C expands why Eseldorf was a paradise. As D introduces the subjects of the para (boys of Eseldorf) it must be the first line. Hence, option B.
2) Answer (C)
The different statements imply that artists in general are not very good at any thing else other than art. This must be the rule being stated in B. Hence the exceptions to the rule must be the examples listed in F. Thus DF is one link that should be at the end of the passage. C introduces the concept of the passage and hence must be the starting point. Hence, option C.
3) Answer (C)
Statement E and A are linked where the author contrasts between sciences like maths and philosophy. We can see that A must follow E. D introduces us to the aim of philosophy and B elaborates on that aim. Hence, DB are linked. The rebuttal of the success of philosophy in reaching its aim as given in C must follow D-B. Hence DBC is one block and EA is one block. Logically the point being made by EA should follow statement C which says that philosophy has not succeeded in providing definite answers. Hence, the ordering is DBCEA.
4) Answer (A)
Statement C introduces us to the idea of the passage and should be the first line of the paragraph. A, B and D give examples of the theory mentioned in C. As E elaborates on the difficulties experienced by an orator it should follow A. Hence there is a link between A-E. Also, as the word “again” is mentioned in A, the example of Demosthenes should come after the example of Homer and Tyrtaeus. Hence, option A.
5) Answer (E)
The main point of the passage is to show how modern philosphers have dispensed with Eudaemonism (thanks to Kant) and no longer try to equate virtue with happiness. From the sentence construction, we see that CBA form a link with C naming two groups and B and A saying what the former and latter tried to do. E introduces the subject of moral science and Eudaemonism and hence must open the paragraph. Thus the correct order is ECBAD.
6) Answer (D)
We see a link between AD where A defines a problem and D elaborates on the said problem. C introduces us to the subject of the paragraph and we see a link between C-B where C states the aim of politics and B elaborates on the scope of it.
7) Answer (B)
The main point of the passage is to describe Kercadiou and his interests. As D introduces the subject it clearly is the first line of the passage. We see a link between D and A where D compares the subject to his house and A elaborates why he is like his house. B continues on the thought initiated in A that he eschewed exalted spheres by leaving them to his brother Etienne. Hence, the correct order is DABEC.
8) Answer: 3
Sentences 1,2 and 4 explains the idea of determinism. The logical order of the sentences is 4-2-1. The idea in 3 does not fit the description of determinism.
9) Answer (D)
Option D starts with the main idea of the paragraph. Option A subtantiates the point by giving example. Option B, builds on A and C-E conclude the paragraph. Hence, the order is DABCE.
10) Answer (B)
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.
