Sentence Rearrangement or Para jumble is a part of the Verbal ability section(VA). It is slightly tricky because sentences can have multiple constructions but we have only one correct answer in the exam. Forming sentence pairs is the best approach. Always look out for the link between sentences and try to order them. This is a medium level difficulty question. The main theme is change blindness and how our brain cannot proccess all of the changes in the environment. Go ahead, try out this question.Struggling with the VARC section of the CAT exam, here are sometips.
Question 20 : The four sentences (labelled A, B, C, D) below, when properly sequenced would yield a coherent paragraph. Decide on the proper sequencing of the order of the sentences and key in the sequence of the four numbers as your answer:
A. While you might think that you see or are aware of all the changes that happen in your immediate environment, there is simply too much information for your brain to fully process everything.
B. Psychologists use the term ‘change blindness’ to describe this tendency of people to be blind to changes though they are in the immediate environment.
C. It cannot be aware of every single thing that happens in the world around you.
D. Sometimes big shifts happen in front of your eyes and you are not at all aware of these changes.
Sentence A is the best opening sentence as it explains the tendency being discussed in the paragraph. The pronoun 'it' in C clearly refers to the brain, mentioned in A. So, AC is a link. AC leads on to D. B, which labels the tendency, is the best concluding sentence.
