Once you are confident that you can solve complex questions, dive into CAT previous year paper and pick a few questions to try out. Start right from this question that appeared in CAT 2019 question paper and smash your CAT preparation online.
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.
Question 27 : 1. We’ll all live under mob rule until then, which doesn’t help anyone.
2. Perhaps we need to learn to condense the feedback we receive online so that 100 replies carry the same weight as just one.
3. As we grow more comfortable with social media conversations being part of the way we interact every day, we are going to have to learn how to deal with legitimate criticism.
4. A new norm will arise where it is considered unacceptable to reply with the same point that dozens of others have already.
3 is the best starting sentence for the paragraph, as it introduces the idea of legitimate criticism in social media conversations. 2 carries forward the idea in 3, suggesting that we need to learn to "condense" the feedback we receive online. 4 adds to 2, stating that a “new norm” is likely to arise over feedback repeating the same point over and over. Sentence 1 is best placed at the end of the paragraph. So, 3241 is the correct order.
3241 is the correct answer.
