Directions: Rearrange the following seven sentences A, B, C, D, E, F and G in the proper sequence to form a meaningful paragraph and then answer the question given beside.

(A). What was until then a sport predominantly of the hinterlands received wider recognition as television and newspapers began discovering it.

(B). The Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal, which narrates the story of Mahavir Singh Phogat and his daughters Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari, was perhaps the icing on the cake.

(C). Ever since Sushil Kumar won a bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, wrestling has, without doubt, grown by leaps and bounds.

(D). Now, it has reached a stage where Sakshi’s Olympic bronze is expected to do to women’s wrestling what Sushil’s did to wrestling in general.

(E). Also, independent India’s first individual Olympic medal winner was a wrestler: Khashaba Dadasaheb Jadhav, who bagged a bronze in the 1952 Helsinki Games. This aided wrestling in securing a prominent place both in the minds of the country’s citizenry as well as in its yet-to-thrive sporting ecosystem.

(F). That Sakshi and the Phogats came from Haryana, a State infamous for its skewed gender ratio, even boosted the narrative of the sport now being a tool for breaking gender stereotypes.

(G). Even to the uninitiated, the sport’s rich moral, philosophical and mystical heritage — with links first to the Ramayana and the Mahabharata through the likes of Hanuman and Bhima, and then to the Mughals and Maratha kings, who were huge patrons of the sport — has always appealed.
H. A series of successes followed, from Yogeshwar Dutt to the Phogat sisters to Sakshi Malik.

Which of the following would be the FIFTH sentence after rearrangement?
» Explain it
A
The correct sequence of the sentences is C-H-A-D-G-E-B-F and the fifth sentence clearly is G.

Option A is hence the correct answer.

Common Explanation:
The passage clearly describes changing perception towards Wrestling in India and how the sport has received recognition in recent times.

Sentence C clearly sets the tone of the passage by mentioning the phenomenal growth the sport has achieved since 2008.

Sentence H immediately follows as it quotes a few more recent successes to strengthen the idea stated in sentence C.    

Keywords/phrases that link H to C:
‘A series of successes’ (H) – ‘won’ (C)
 
Sentence A clearly seems to follow next as it takes the description forward.

Keyword/phrase that links A to H:
‘Recognition’ (A) – ‘A series of successes followed’ (H)
 
Sentence D follows next as it augments the idea stated so far.
 
Keyword/phrase that links D to A:
‘Now’ (D) – ‘then’ (A)
 
The sequence made so far is C - H – A - D
 
From here, though it becomes a bit complex to pick the next sentence in sequence yet we can pair up the remaining sentences.
 
For instance,
 
Between B and F, sentence F clearly follows B and hence they get paired up as B – F.
 
Keyword/phrase that links F to B:
‘narrative’ (F) – ‘narrates’ (B)

Similarly, between E and G, sentence G must precede E keeping the chronology of events happened in mind. This forms another pair as G – E.

If we observe further we can infer that sentence E links to sentence B.

Keywords/phrases that link E to B:
‘This added wrestling’, ‘a prominent place’ (E) – ‘icing on the cake’ (B)

The complete sequence of the sentences thus formed is C-H-A-D-G-E-B-F.

Rearrangement of Sentences is one of the most important topics of General English Section of competitive exams like Bank Exams, SSC Exams, CAT Exam, MAT Exams, etc. In this topic, basically, you are given a paragraph in the form of 5 or more sentences but these sentences are not in the right order. It’s up to you to rearrange the sentences so that they logically make sense. It’s not only your test of English but your reasoning skills also. The key to solving a Para-jumble or Rearrangement of Sentences is in identifying the chain of thought. Once an exam aspirant is able to identify the central point and chain of thought, solving Para-jumbles or Rearrangement of Sentences becomes easier.

Here are some important tips which an exam aspirant should apply to solve a Para-jumble or Rearrangement of Sentences:

1. Understand the theme of the given passage. If the theme is understood once the sentences can easily be put in right order.

2. Try to identify the first or the last sentence which is sometimes very easily identified.

3. Mostly, the first sentence will introduce the theme of the paragraph and will not begin with a conjunction like because, so, but, etc.

4. Transitions words and linking words sometimes help to put the sentences in a right order. So, look for the transitions words also.

5. Try to look for short forms or abbreviations and their full forms because the sentence containing the full form will come before the sentence containing the short form or the abbreviation.
