Directions: The following five sentences have to be arranged in the proper sequence, so as to form a meaningful paragraph. On the basis of your sequencing, answer the questions that follow.

a) Every nerve cell in our brain acts on ‘inputs’, or information, from thousands of other nerve cells. Each one integrates these ‘inputs’ into a single goal – whether to fire or not to fire.

b) As the election draws nearer many us feel dread at how a complex array of issues facing our country gets squeezed into a winner takes all, first past the post voting process.

c) Once it does and the impulse is transmitted, all the richness and complexity of the other cell inputs is lost.

d) It doesn’t seem right that the diversity of the electorate’s views is simplified into a simple decision. But that’s the way it works.

e) There’s no grey area or halfway house: a nerve cell either fires an action potential or it doesn’t.
