Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Elimination:

There is a common idea in sentences B and D: both refer to politics. Sentence D talks of politicians manipulating people using emotions to grab power. Sentence B declares that this is not the problem. The problem is that people who are otherwise sensible allow themselves to be led blindly.

Again, sentences A and C seem related. Both talk of what the people must do. Sentence A calls upon the people to reflect, warning that if we don’t, we are likely to make mistakes in the name of good things such as fighting corruption and tackling crime. Sentence C states that we might be able to approach “the issue? with greater level-headedness by understanding that our security is not under attack; it is our sentiments that are offended.

What is “the issue? referred to in sentence C that stirs up our emotions and makes us fear that our security is under threat? Sentence A makes a reference to fighting corruption and tackling crime. It doesn’t specifically state one issue that makes us feel our security is threatened. Neither B or D helps us pinpoint what “the issue? is.

On the other hand, we see that sentence A urges people to think deeply and reflect, so that they do not commit “grievous? mistakes without proper deliberation. This continues the idea in sentence B that otherwise sensible citizens allow themselves to be led on by emotions stirred up by politicians. So DBA makes a cogent paragraph.

Sentence C does not fit, as it talks of a specific “issue? that the rest of the sentences cannot explain.

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

Hence, the answer is Sentence C

Choice C is the correct answer.
