Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Elimination:

Sentences C and B go together, as do A and D.

C refers to the fact that Greek was the language of the governing elite, hinting that the language of the governed was something else. B says “Greek rulers could neither speak the language of the people” elaborating on the same theme.

A and D both talk of the Rosetta Stone.

There is a link between B and A as well. B talks of fueling resentment while A elaborates on this by stating “Egypt was in open revolt”

Greece and Greek rulers is the common link between the sentences C , B and A which make sense when placed in sequence.

The question is " Choose the Sentence that does not fit in "

Hence, the answer is Sentence D

Choice D is the correct answer.
