4) Answer (A)

BD is a link. This is because B talks about “the unpleasant human animal” that the author has met and D says that such types are fortunately rare. Similarly, AC is a link. A says that the author is intolerant of human shortcomings, but that he has been lucky in meeting mostly charming people. C explains why this might be the case. E is the best opening sentence. The order of sentences is, therefore, EACBD.

This is followed by B which talks about a different design which tried to solve the same problem.

9) Answer (C)

Out of statement C, E and D , E perfectrly opens the topic . Also statement B should come after statement C, as C talks about how pyramids and temples are sources of information and B takes it forward by saying that even papyrus came from pyramids. SO we have CB pair. Hence, Option C .

10) Answer (A)

Befor finding the opening statement, first see if there is any link between sentences. We can clearly see that statement D should follow E. Thus link ED is compulsary pair. Also statement A should follow B , as statement B infers from A . Thus only logical sequence is CEDBA.
