Sentence Elimination (a) Odd one out is one of the if not the easiest section that you could face in the VA section under the CAT exam. The probability of getting it right is much higher than the Sentence Rearrangement section and being non-negative in nature makes it easier to answer. In the CAT previous year papers, we saw that there were 3 questions on an average per slot in Sentence Elimination. 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 3 to 2. The best place to start your CAT online preparation for the CAT Exam are the actual CAT Previous Year Papers.
Question 23 : Five jumbled up sentences, related to a topic, are given below. Four of them can be put together to form a coherent paragraph. Identify the odd one out and key in the number of the sentence as your answer:
A. The logic of displaying one’s inner qualities through outward appearance was based on a distinction between being a woman and being feminine.
B. 'Appearance' became a signifier of conduct - to look was to be and conformity to the feminine ideal was measured by how well women could use the tools of the fashion and beauty industries.
C. The makeover-centric media sets out subtly and not-so-subtly, ‘good’ and ‘bad’ ways to be a woman, layering these over inequalities of race and class.
D. The denigration of working-class women and women of colour often centres on their perceived failure to embody feminine beauty.
E. ‘Woman’ was considered a biological category, but femininity was a ‘process’ by which women became specific kinds of women.
The sentences relate to subject of being a woman versus being feminine. EB is a link. The sentences are structured similarly and state what signifies what. Sentence A relates to the same idea. AEB is a possible sequence. Between C and D, D fits better to the idea in B--the measure of the feminine ideal.
C, which is about how the 'make-over centric media' set out to define 'good' and 'bad' ways to be a woman, is the odd one out.
