1
Which of the following should be the FIRST sentence after rearrangement?
» Explain it
C
The correct sequence is C-B-G-A-E-F-D and the first sentence is clearly C.
 
Option C is hence the correct answer.

Common explanation:
 
Of the given sentences, two sentences ‘A’ and ‘C’ are meaningful and devoid of usages of ‘Pronouns’ or ‘definite article’ and thus either of them could be the opening statement of the passage. Now, Between ‘A’ and ‘C’ while ‘A’ talks about the strategies of treating a heart attack, ‘C’ discusses a unique invention relating to a cardiac arrest and its treatment. If we read the other sentences further we can observe the whole passage is written about this study or invention. Sentence C hence should be the opening statement.

B follows as it elaborates the reference of ‘time’ given in the first statement.

Keywords/phrases that link B to C:
"time" and “heart attack”

G must be the next sentence as it describes the details regarding the study further.

Keyword/phrase that links G to B:
“The landmark study”

The sequence made so far is C-B-G.
