Question 49: A. As every language has evolved in a specific geocultural niche, it has different ways of talking of and codifying the world.
B. To learn another language, we must suspend our habit of glossing over differences, which distorts our understanding of others and of ourselves.
C. The work of learning new ways of talking – new sounds, grammars and storytelling techniques – stretches and builds the mind.
D. Therefore, it is not possible to achieve fluency in another language without learning its speakers’ perspectives.
B states that we must suspend our habit of "glossing over" differences if we want to learn another language. A explains what these differences are– every language has different ways of codifying the world as it has evolved in a specific geocultural niche. So, BA is a link.
Now, looking at C and D, we see that C relates to how learning to talk a new language stretches our mind. This does not fit well with the idea in B and A.On the other hand, D adds to A. As different languages have different ways of codifying the world, it is not possible to achieve fluency in another language without learning its speakers' perspectives.
BAD makes a cogent paragraph.
The question is " Choose the Sentence that does not fit in "
Choice C is the correct answer.
