Question 19 : The four sentences (labelled 1, 2, 3, 4) 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:
1. It is regimes of truth that make certain relationships speakable - relationships, like subjectivities, are constituted through discursive formations, which sustain regimes of truth.
2. Relationships are nothing without the communication that brings them into being; interpersonal communication is connected to knowledge shared by interlocutors, and scholars should attend to relational histories in their analyses.
3. A Foucauldian approach to relationships goes beyond these conceptions of discourse and history to macrolevel regimes of truth as constituting relationships.
4. Reconsidering micropractices within relationships that are constituted within and simultaneously contributors to regimes of truth acknowledges the central position of power/knowledge in the constitution of what has come to be considered true and real.

Explanatory Answer

Sentence 2 offers the best start to the paragraph and talks about the importance of relational histories in the analysis of interpersonal communication. Sentences 1, 3 and 4 relate to the idea of 'regimes of truth', which is first introduced in 3, which talks about a Foucaldian approach going beyond the existing conceptions of discourse and history. So, 3 follows 2. Sentence 1 expands on 'regimes of truth' and how they make relationships speakable and sustain them. Sentence 4 adds to 1 and concludes the paragraph.

The answer is '2314'
