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

1) But despite last year’s damage compounded by new cases dotted across 800 reefs in a 1,500km stretch, not a single reef tourism operator has been forced to seek out new ground to take visitors.
2) And that was not because of bleaching but Cyclone Debbie further south, which damaged that other hub of reef tourism, the Whitsundays after it escaped the bleaching.
3) In the dark clouds gathering over the future of the Great Barrier Reef, there has been a small silver lining for the people who make their living showcasing the natural wonder.
4) When the reef was rocked by an unprecedented second mass bleaching event in the space of a year, the coral hardest-hit by heat stress lay mostly in the tourist-heavy latitudes between Cairns and Townsville.
5) The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, which licenses operators to visit designated reef sites, confirmed it has received one request to change a permit.
6) By an accident of geography, the tourist operators say, the most wondrous sites for public viewing, which tend to fall on the edge of the continental shelf near cooler, deeper waters, are the ones also spared the worst damage from bleaching.

    Option D
    Point No 5th can be the starting sentence. But it says it has received a request to change a permit. Which permit?? Not given in point 5. So it cannot be the starting sentence. Pont no 6 has also a little possibility of the starting sentence. But there is no sentence which can logically follow it. So starting sentence is point no 3 which tells about Great Barrier Reef. Now point 4 tells about – the reef (means some specific reef) so it will follow point 3 (here the reef is point to the Great Barrier Reef). In point 4 – hardest-hit by heat stress. So it follows point 1 which tells despite this damage, reef tourism operators….. Next comes point number 5 which tells that the authority which licenses operators have received request….Next point no 2 that this request is not because of bleaching but… last is point 6
    So the order is 3, 4, 1, 5, 2, 6

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

1) The authors of this study found that over the past 420 million years, the slow heating of the sun and slow decline of the greenhouse effect have roughly offset each other, leading to a fairly stable long-term global climate.
2) A new study published in Nature Communications looks at changes in solar activity and carbon dioxide levels over the past 420 million years.
3) The authors found that on our current path, by mid-century humans will be causing the fastest climate change in approximately 50 million years, and if we burn all available fossil fuels, we’ll cause the fastest change in the entire 420 million year record.
4) A stronger greenhouse effect due to higher carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere may be one explanation.
5) Over time, solar output has grown stronger, and atmospheric carbon dioxide levels have fallen due to an effect known as “weathering” of rocks and an increase in plant life.
6) The study relates to a scientific conundrum known as the “faint young sun paradox” – that early in Earth’s history, solar output was 70% less intense than it is today, and yet the planet was warm enough to have a liquid ocean.

  1. After the rearrangement of sentences, what will be the sixth sentence?
    A) 3
    B) 5
    C) 6
    D) 2
    E) 1

    Option E
    Clearly point no 2 is the starting sentence which tells that what the new study published says. The study tells about changes over the past 420 million years. Now the authors of this study found that what will happen in the mid-century and if we burn all available fossil fuels – this will cause a fastest change and break records of those 420 million years (point no 3). Now more points – that what the study tells. Point 6 tells that what was used to be earlier (that early in Earth’s history….). Why it was says? – Tells point no 4 that one explanation is… Next point no 5 tells that what has happened to solar output now (Over time, solar output has grown stronger). Now point 1 because it tells – that now there is a fairly stable long-term global climate. After point 5 – the slow heating of the sun and slow decline of the greenhouse effect have roughly offset each other, leading to
    So the correct order is 2, 3, 6, 4, 5, 1
