Questions 1:

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.

1) Answer: 25341

Solution: 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. While, 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 topis of discussion must be the ending sentence. Hence, 25341 is the right answer.

Question 2:

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. Before plants can take life from atmosphere, nitrogen must undergo transformations similar to ones that food undergoes in our digestive machinery.
2. In its aerial form nitrogen is insoluble, unusable and is in need of transformation.
3. Lightning starts the series of chemical reactions that need to happen to nitrogen, ultimately helping it nourish our earth.
4. Nitrogen — an essential food for plants — is an abundant resource, with about 22 million tons of it floating over each square mile of earth.
5. One of the most dramatic examples in nature of ill wind that blows goodness is lightning.

2) Answer : 53421

Solution : 
Closely reading the sentences we see that the topic of discussion is how chemical reactions started by lightning affects nitrogen in the air which ultimately help nourish the earth. Hence, sentence 5 which introduces lightning to us must be the starting sentence. Sentence 3 further elaborates on chemical reactions, started by lightning, which affects nitrogen. Hence, sentence 3 logically follows sentence 5. Sentence 4 states how nitrogen helps in nourishing the earth. Hence, sentence 4 must follow sentence 3. Senetence 2 states why in its natural form nitrogen is unusable and sentence 1 further elaborates on why nitrogen must undergo transformation for plants to use it. Hence 21 forms a pair which must come follow sentence 4. Hence, the correct sequence 53421.

Question 3:

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. This has huge implications for the health care system as it operates today, where depleted resources and time lead to patients rotating in and out of doctor’s offices, oftentimes receiving minimal care or concern (what is commonly referred to as “bed side manner”) from doctors.
2. The placebo effect is when an individual’s medical condition or pain shows signs of improvement based on a fake intervention that has been presented to them as a real one and used to be regularly dismissed by researchers as a psychological effect.
3. The placebo effect is not solely based on believing in treatment, however, as the clinical setting in which treatments are administered is also paramount.
4. That the mind has the power to trigger biochemical changes because the individual believes that a given drug or intervention will be effective could empower chronic patients through the notion of our bodies’ capacity for self-healing.
5. Placebo effects are now studied not just as foils for “real” interventions but as a potential portal into the self-healing powers of the body.

3) Answer: 25431

Solution:
Closely reading the sentences we see that the passage is about placebo effects. Sentence 2 which introduces the placebo effect must be the starting sentence. Sentence 5 states that placebo effect are now not just studied for real intervations, as stated in sentence 2, but as potential portal into self healing power. Hence, sentence 5 logically follows sentence 2. Sentence 4 which elaborates on the self healing must follow sentence 5. Sentence 3 makes a point that placebo effect is not solely based on believeing in treatment but also the clinical setting. Sentence 1 elaborates on this. Hence, 31 is a pair which must follow sentence 4. Thus, the correct order is 25431.

Question 4:

The five sentences gabelled 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 process of handing down implies not a passive transfer, but some contestation in defining what exactly is to be handed down.
2. Wherever Western scholars have worked on the Indian past, the selection is even more apparent and the inventing of a tradition much more recognizable.
3. Every generation selects what it requires from the past and makes its innovations, some more than others.
4. It is now a truism to say that traditions are not handed down unchanged, but are invented.
5. Just as life has death as its opposite, so is tradition by default the opposite of innovation.

Answer: 54132

Solution: 
A quick glance at all the five questions suggest that the passage is discussing tradition and innovation. Hence, 5 is the best opening sentence as it sets the context for the discussion. 4 and 1 form a pair as both of them talk about handing down. Similarly, 3, 2 also form a pair as both talk about selections. Hence, the correct logical order of the given sentences will be 54132.

Question 5:

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 study suggests that the disease did not spread with such intensity, but that it may have driven human migrations across Europe and Asia.
2. The oldest sample came from an individual who lived in southeast Russia about 5,000 years ago.
3. The ages of the skeletons correspond to a time of mass exodus from today’s Russia and Ukraine into western Europe and central Asia, suggesting that a pandemic could have driven these migrations.
4. In the analysis of fragments of DNA from 101 Bronze Age skeletons for sequences from Yersinia pestis, the bacterium that causes the disease, seven tested positive.
5. DNA from Bronze Age human skeletons indicate that the black plague could have emerged as early as 3,000 BCE, long before the epidemic that swept through Europe in the rnid-1300s.

Answer: 54123

Solution:

On carefully reading the sentences, we see that the paragraph is about the disease – black plaque and its impact on migration. Sentence 5 introduces the subject. Hence, it should be the opening sentence of the paragraph. Sentence 4 should follow 5 as 4 talks about the bronze age skeletons, which are mentioned in 5. Sentence 1 should follow 4 as ‘the study’ refers to the analysis of skeletons mentioned in 4. Sentences 2 and 3 form a pair as 2 mentions that the oldest sample was found in Russia and 3 mentions that this could have been the reason for mass exodus. 54123 forms a coherent paragraph.
