  • Correct Answer
    Choice A

Detailed Solution

The topic here is the unconscious mind. We can see straight away that sentence B is a promising first sentence. Let’s try to see if it can link this with 2 others. So we start off admitting that the unconscious mind makes us brilliant, and look for steps to benefit from it.

Option A has starts off with “you will know it has…”. It cannot be placed before or after B.

Option C refers to a step taken to interest the unconscious mind- working on it with the conscious mind. But it has an “instead” in it. So something precedes C.

Between A and D, D makes better sense before C, the flow being “The unconscious mind cannot be ordered about….instead…”

So we have the sentence order BDC forming a paragraph. So the choice to be eliminated is A

Correct Answer: Choice (a)
