Para Jumbles, which is also known as Sentence Rearrangement, in the CAT Question Paper are must-attempt questions since they are generally TITA type questions that carry no negative marking. With this, we can’t really say that these questions are easily achievable. But identifying the idea and connotations used in each sentence and linking those is one of the best ways to solve these type of questions during your CAT Exam. Reading becomes the crucial part, by all means, for your CAT VARC. Start your CAT Online Preparation today!
The four sentences (labelled 1, 2, 3, 4) 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.

2. It encourages us into bubbles of people we know and like, while blinding us to different perspectives, but the deeper problem of ‘transparency’ lies in the words “and much more”.
3. Twitter’s website says that “tweets you are likely to care about most will show up first in your timeline based on accounts you interact with most, tweets you engage with, and much more.”
4. We are only told some of the basic principles, and we can’t see the algorithm itself, making it hard for citizens to analyse the system sensibly or fairly or be convinced of its impartiality and objectivity.
324 is a clear sequence: all three sentences are about Twitter’s policy. 2 follows immediately after 3, as the pronoun ‘it’ that 2 starts with could only refer to the statement in Twitter’s website mentioned in 3.
