Question 19 : The four sentences (labelled 1, 2, 3 and 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. The more we are able to accept that our achievements are largely out of our control, the easier it becomes to understand that our failures, and those of others, are too.
2. But the raft of recent books about the limits of merit is an important correction to the arrogance of contemporary entitlement and an opportunity to reassert the importance of luck, or grace, in our thinking.
3. Meritocracy as an organising principle is an inevitable function of a free society, as we are designed to see our achievements as worthy of reward.
4. And that in turn should increase our humility and the respect with which we treat our fellow citizens, helping ultimately to build a more compassionate society.

Explanatory Answer

3 is the most general statement and hence the best one to start the paragraph. 32 is a link: 3 states that we are designed to see our achievements as worthy of reward; 2 talks about a raft of recent books that throw light on the limits of this kind of thinking. 21 is a link, with 1 adding to the point made in 2 about the limits of merit and how understanding this can help us become more accepting. 4 follows 1 and concludes the paragraph with how this, in turn, will help build a more compassionate society. 3214 is the correct order.

The answer is '3214'
