Sentence A labels fiction as a ‘means of escape’ from social ties and reality. Sentence D, the other hand, says that the act of reading is actually an ‘exercise in human interaction’. As these are two opposing points of view, it is clear that either A or D is the sentence to be eliminated. Sentence B is difficult to place without context, as it talks of reading training people in ‘this domain’. What expertise reading fiction builds is not clear just by reading this sentence. Now, sentence C declares that the ‘defining characteristic of fiction’ is not that it is something fabricated, but that it is about human intentions and interactions. Clearly, this is in line with the idea expressed in sentence D. We can now see that DCB makes a cogent paragraph. So, sentence A is the one to be eliminated. Correct Answer: Choice (a)
