CAT Previous Year Paper | CAT VARC Questions | Question 26

CAT VARC has changed a lot since 2014-15 and has increased the number of RC based questions and the other part called as verbal ability also saw an inclination towards questions that require extensive reading than anything else (read as vocab and grammar). We have tried to present here the CAT 2017 VARC Section with detailed solutions in a student friendly format to test yourself and understand the importance of reading for VARC section of the CAT exam. For a curated reading list head out here: Bharath’s Reading List. If you are planning to take CAT 2017 paper as a full fledged mock, it would help if you go back to : CAT Question Bank and solve questions that are not from actual CAT Question papers.


The five sentences (labelled 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5) given below, when properly sequenced would yield a coherent paragraph. Decide on the proper sequence of the order of the sentences and key in the sequence of the four numbers as your answer.

Question 26 : 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.

Explanatory Answer

2, which explains what placebo effect is, is the best opening sentence. 2 states that the placebo effect “used to be regularly dismissed by researchers”. 5 follows this up with what is now true: placebo effects are now studied not just as foils for "real" interventions but as a potential portal into the self-healing powers. So, 5 follows 2. 4 expands on the idea of self-healing mentioned in 5. So, 4 follows 5. 4 talks about the role of the mind in self-healing. 3 follows this up stating that the placebo effect “is not solely based on believing in treatment”. 1 carries forward the idea in 3 that the clinical setting in which treatments are administered is also paramount. So, 25431 is the correct order.


25431 is the correct answer.
