Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Elimination:

Sentence A talks of modern prose being a mix of vagueness and incompetence.

Sentence D elaborates on the idea of “vagueness” talked of in sentence A, stating that in certain topics, the concrete melts into the abstract, and oft-used expressions abound.

Sentence C declares that prose is becoming less about words chosen for their meaning, and more about piling up pretentious phrases.

ADC makes a paragraph.

Sentence B starts off with “it follows that” and states that any struggle against the abuse of language is dismissed as sentimental and old-fashioned. None of the statements given offers a thought that would fit with the “it follows that” beginning of sentence B.

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

Hence, the answer is Sentence B

Choice B is the correct answer.
