Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Elimination:

Both sentences B and C refer to Macron’s victory in the French elections. Let us look at how they relate to each other. Sentence B declares Macron’s victory to be the “consummation of a political revolution?. Sentence C, however, posits the idea that the so-called transformation of the political landscape might be only skin deep, as the turnout was low. These are two different ideas.

Now, let us look at sentences A and D. Sentence A is a general statement, that party politics merely skims the surface of the ocean that is the society, and that it is the undercurrents that are of significance in the long run. Sentence D, too, makes a reference to a “powerful current? — growing abstention— declaring that this risks “pulling the country under?. These are related ideas—while sentence A makes a generalized observation, sentence D cites a specific example, the case of France, where abstention, or low voter turnout, is a strong undercurrent that could have a powerful impact in the long run. So, D follows A.

Does sentence B or C relate to the idea in sentences A and D? On close observation, we can see that sentence C does, referring to the low-turnout and suggesting that what looks like a huge transformation of the political landscape on “the surface? might actually be only skin deep. Note that the reference to “the surface? ties in with the imagery in sentences A and D, to the surf, scum, spray and undercurrents.

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

Hence, the answer is Sentence B

Choice B is the correct answer.
