Question 21 : The four sentences (labelled 1, 2, 3 and 4) given 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. Algorithms hosted on the internet are accessed by many, so biases in AI models have resulted in much larger impact, adversely affecting far larger groups of people.
2. Though "algorithmic bias" is the popular term, the foundation of such bias is not in algorithms, but in the data; algorithms are not biased, data is, as algorithms merely reflect persistent patterns that are present in the training data.
3. Despite their widespread impact, it is relatively easier to fix AI biases than human-generated biases, as it is simpler to identify the former than to try to make people unlearn behaviors learnt over generations.
4. The impact of biased decisions made by humans is localised and geographically confined, but with the advent of AI, the impact of such decisions is spread over a much wider scale.

Explanatory Answer

Sentence 4 is the best one to start the paragraph, as it is the most general one and also because it talks of the 'advent of AI'.

41 is a strong link: 4 states that with the advent of AI, the impact of biased decisions is 'spread over a much wider scale'. 1 explains why this is so.

23 is also a strong link. 2 explains that the foundation of bias is not in algorithms, but in the data. 3 adds to 2, stating that AI biases are easier to fix than human-generated biases.

So, 4123 is the correct order.

The answer is '4123'
