  3. Then again, they have realized that the easier way to gain ad revenue to cover costs is by luring advertisers to a fail-proof, steady-TRP format like reality TV.
  4. The nearly 15% year-on-year rise in production cost levels for reality shows has networks rattled.


  • Correct Answer
    Choice A

Detailed Solution

Sentence A talks of how well a reality show does in terms of viewership. Sentence B seems to carry forward that thought, stating that the “key” is for channels to find bankable reality formats.

Sentence C is unrelated to the idea that A and B share. Firstly it starts with a “then, again” and talks of “they” realizing that an easy way to gain ad revenue is to lure advertisers to reality TV.

Sentence D tells us that the year-on-year increase in production costs for reality shows has rattled networks. We see right away that D and C are related and that C follows D.

Sentence B that talks of bankable reality formats provides the third sentence to complete the paragraph, in the order DCB.

So the sentence to be eliminated is A.
