CAT Previous Year Paper | CAT VARC Questions | Question 26

Sentence Rearrangement or Para jumble is 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 an easy question. The main theme is very large telescopes. Go ahead, try out this question.

Question 26 : 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. It also has four movable auxiliary telescopes 1.8 m in diameter.
B. Completed in 2006, the Very Large Telescope (VLT) has four reflecting telescopes, 8.2 m in diameter that can observe objects 4 billion times weaker than can normally be seen with the naked eye.
C. This configuration enables one to distinguish an astronaut on the Moon.
D. When these are combined with the large telescopes, they produce what is called interferometry: a simulation of the power of a mirror 16 m in diameter and the resolution of a telescope of 200 m.
