A is the best opening sentence. It introduces the author’s trip to Princeton University.
This is followed by D, which talks about how the author prepared for his trip by gathering the email ids of a few Princeton students.
B then follows and describes what happened when the author emailed the students of Princeton.
The situation is then explained in sentence C and followed by sentence E.

Option A starts the issue by highlighting the damage done to oceans. Option C highlights the consequences. Option B further extends the issue by highlighting the damage done to Coral Reefs. Option D concludes the sentence. hence the correct sequence is ACBD.

C opens the paragraph brilliantly. E follows C and explains why the phrase “war on terror” is a misnomer. B continues the explanation started in E. D then follows, and gives another reason why the phrase doesn’t hold water. A concludes the paragraph aptly.

The best opening sentence is B. It introduces the topic of the paragraph – intelligence. This is followed by D. The word ‘these’ in sentence D refers to the tests in sentence B. Next is sentence A, which talks about what intelligence actually means. The concluding sentence is C. The correct order of sentences is BDAC.

C is the best opening sentence. It says that the Qwerty keyboard was designed for solving a specific problem. E follows and talks about what that problem is.

This is followed by B which talks about a different design which tried to solve the same problem.
The last sentence is D, which says the second design was never widely adopted even though, with the advent of electrical typewriters and PCs, the original problem of the typrewriters ceased to be a problem anymore.

A introduces the main idea of the para – having a strategy.

C and E extend this idea in that order. So, ACE is a sequence.

DB is a mandatory pair. The ‘it’ in sentence B refers to ‘the strategy’ in sentence D.

F is the concluding sentence.

So, the correct order of sentences is ACEDBF.

Among given sentences E seems most perfect starting sentences as it introduces the topic and othe options take it forward. Also statement B should follow D thus wehave DB as the pair. Option D is the only option which fulfils these requirements.
