Sentence rearrangement (a) Para Jumbles is one of the easiest as well as the trickiest section that you could face in the CAT exam. Usually, this feels to be easier because you can connect the 4 options into a group of two but grouping those two into one is trickier. Basically, you must pick 1 out of 24 possibilities. In the CAT previous year papers, we saw that there were 4 questions on an average per slot in Sentence Rearrangement. CAT 2020 saw a reduction of questions from 34 to 26 in VARC section because of which the average no. of questions got reduced from 4 to 3. The best place to start your online CAT preparation is the actual CAT Exam are the actual CAT Question Paper. We at 2IIM Online CAT Coaching offer you exactly that, in a user-friendly format to take value from this.
Question 22 : 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. Each one personified a different aspect of good fortune.
B. The others were versions of popular Buddhist gods, Hindu gods and Daoist gods.
C. Seven popular Japanese deities, the Shichi Fukujin, were considered to bring good luck and happiness.
D. Although they were included in the Shinto pantheon, only two of them, Daikoku and Ebisu, were indigenous Japanese gods.
C is the best opening sentence. C talks of seven popular Japanese deities. Sentence A adds to C, stating that each one personified a different aspect of good fortune. DB is a clear link, D talks of two of the deities, and B the others. CADB is hence the right order.
